    New forum suggestion, Phidget Projects

    Can we please get a new technical forum specifically for phidgets? These are a great technology, and a lot could be gained in the car control if we could collaborate hardware and software ideas into one forum.

    Right now, there is just a bunch of scattered information. It seems like more and more people are turning to these instead of hashing together PICs and BStamps.

    I personally have a lot of questions for people more experienced in using them, and having one good place to discuss it would help a lot. It would also really help in the sharing of VB code for them.

    Thanks !!!

    I also think this would be a good idea, I personally don't know much about them but would like to know more and see what others are using them for. A sub-forum for Phidgets could bring all the information together into one place.

    Pretty neat, it's an easier way to control electronics from your PC without needing an EE degree. They give VB interfaces, etc. Some people are using them for things like controlling their HVAC, I think.

    Instead of limiting it to just Phidgets, maybe it could be labeled Hardware Development. Or something along those lines. This could be dedicated to the design of new hardware like relay cards and the such. This way, the General Hardware board would remain for "My computer doesn't work..." questions, and the Hardware development board would be "I'm designing a AC control board..." type questions.

    And, Zip-Lock... tsk, tsk...

    Its a USB based relay board. Simple command set, easy to implement in either VB, or C++.

    A general homebrew hardware forum would be very nice

    I'll flex my new muscles here and make one. However, if the big guy doesn't
    like it, it goes.
