A bit disappointing about the launch

Sep 11, 2011 at 5:54 PM

Its been some time and I do not see any additional hardware being made nor a reduction on the prices of these ridiculously expensive pieces.  I could by a laptop at the price of the demo digital camera kit, the prices are really inflated.  There has to be some development from the novelty phase that .NET Gadgeteer is in right now to much more facilitating hardware and cheaper prices.  What I want to see are additional hardware pieces like thermometers, GPS, electric current switches, etc.  This way I could actually rapidly prototype SOMETHING other than a mini arcade or bulky late 90's digital camera.

Yes, hope to see more gadgeteer hardware in future.

Well, there is little centralization on hardware news but here is a new line of Gadgeteer products im really excited about.  I just wish there was some kind of news-review site that had all these products conveniently searchable.

They have moisture sensors,  GPS modules, compass modules, wireless, even a God damn gyro - YES!
