When I opened up Digi’s new Tumblr, I was delighted to see a couple of my projects on the front page. The maker of XBee radios is now curating the Largest Collection of XBee Projects on the Web. From Liz Presson:

So many of you are using XBee radios to create amazing things, that we’ve created a place to feature your work. Musical shoes, digital dominoes, interactive sculptures and autonomous penguins await!

Isn’t it wonderful to see a component manufacturer shining the spotlight on makers’ projects?

  1. And for folks who are cheapskates like me, check out the RFBee (http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/rfbee-v11-wireless-arduino-compatible-node-p-614.html) which is a 900Mhz XBee-like module, but the uC is an ATMega, so you can program it like an Arduino! Oh yeah, it’s also $20.
