That's the first thing I asked when I got on this mailing list. There
are some archived messages about this subject already. But some of us
have been thinking that a site full of ideas of uses for your gumstix
would be a great idea.
I set up a webring for gumstix stuff. And ask that anyone who wants to
join it or contribute to the site email me and I'll add them in. But
nobody has responded yet (*hint,hint*).
We need lists of ideas and lists of projects that people have completed
or are fairly into already. Gumstix doesn't have very many I/Os but the
price is right!
Also. slightly off-topic but if you want a microcontroller that is
cheap, low powered and you can connect to a gumstix for some enhanced
I/O check out the TI MSP430. Right now TI has an offer of free 2 hour
lunch and seminar and you get a free wrist watch with the MSP430
built-in. There are like 100 locations for the seminars so it's likely
there is one nearby. Check out
http://www.ti.com/corp/docs/landing/msp430day/index.htm .. I am looking
into getting one as a companion for the gumstix.
