Electronic Ink

Looks like 'electronic ink' is finally becoming available. This is a technology that lets you change a display, but the display is permanent, even without power. Looks exciting.

Interestingly, one of the selling points is that these displays are readable in sunlight, like the OLPC computer. I bought one of these, very nice.

LEDuino Announced

Well, Silicon Railway has announced their Arduino clone, which is called the LEDuino. In its basic form it is totally compatible but has a smaller USB port connector, and has a power switch. However, it can also be configured with a DCC interface for railroad buffs, a I2C interface, and/or a CAN interface. Its a well-connected board.

You can read more about it here, or go to their website, or even buy one on EBay. The Arduino original site is here.
