    Lightbulb Nilok Qube - USB IO, Bluetooth, ALMOST DONE!

    February 06, 2010 *Updated Picture
    ================================================== =
    Well, its the new year! I forgot to make any recent posts about this here at mp3car since the project has been going SO well!

    I have successfully make about 15 Qubes so far, and I have a few more to put together to finish the first official run of 20! I have received a few very generous donations / pre-orders to help this project along. Luckily, it is almost done!



    If you guys are interested, check out my blog at http://blog.nilok.ca since there are fresh posts all the time!

    Also, I'd like to open up the donations link here too just in case anybody wants to help sponsor this project. A donation of more than $70.00 USD will get you a pre-order (if there are any left), but donations of ANY size would be GLADLY accepted! I've even had $1.00 as a joke

    A couple questions:
    What micro are you using for this?
    This will run without a computer attached I assume?
    Is this a bulk transfer USB device, or virtual COM port device?
    Either way, if you need any help developing software for it I can help, I'd certainly be interested in something like this.

    u forgot "i dont wear underwear" option in your poll (o;'
    the device seems like it would be usable... even though similar ones exist, competition is always good... in a competative market, there is always one sure winner and that is the end user (;

    This will be run off a microchip PIC 1484455 processor.
    It will run without a computer to an extent. The special functions (latching, input based on output, debounce) will all work as will the PWM. The analogs won't, the outputs will retain their states but won't toggle (unless attached to an input function). Anything that needs USB to communicate won't work.

    However, it can still be run from the serial interface with an addon board.

    PM me about the software, what you can help with. I'm always looking for some extra help on hardware, software and firmware.

    Bump.

    Please try to explain why you chose what you did. Except 2k1toaster and h3rk, I don't want to know what you guys are thinking!



    I got an update today, the enclosures themselves can be made from aluminum for about $15.00 each or from black plastic for about $12.50 each. Add shipping to that and add anodizing for the aluminum. Then add custom stickers and 4 screws and we're looking at a total of about $21.00 each aluminum, $16.00 each plastic.

    I think that's great for a small run of 10!

    The circuit boards should be about $25.00 to $30.00 each since I'll be hand populating them. So far so good!

    I would not be interested as it does things I do not need.

    Care to elaborate? Do you mean there are features you would not use or you just don't need the product at all?
