From the mail bag!

I wasn’t exactly sure where to send this, but I still felt it needed to be sent. My senior design team and I have been working around the clock since the beginning of January. We designed and built from scratch a semi-autonomous card dealing robot. By the end of the semester, we had a fully-functional prototype capable of nearly all the physical actions and game management abilities of a human card dealer. I’m writing to thank all of you at Adafruit for your invaluable tutorials and terrific products. No one on the team had used Arduino before, and only a few of us had much coding experience. We would not have been able to accomplish what we did without those! Additionally, the vast majority of our electronic hardware came from you (V2 motorshields, LCD screen and backpack, buttons galore). Besides being just simply terrific products, the tutorials on how to use them were absolutely invaluable to us. Speaking personally, I know I will remain a loyal supporter and patron of your company, and I’m positive my team mates will too. Here is a link to a video we threw together to capture our work over the past months and a demonstration of our prototype (https://youtu.be/zfQ_hifbcZw). Thanks again!

Sincerely,

Luke
