The ProtoSnap, Sparkfun’s New ‘Duino

I spent today at EYEO Festival in Minneapolis, a really cool interactive conference with an awesome makery twist. One of the seminars was Sparkfun’s introduction of a sweet new Arduino configuration they call the ProtoSnap. The cost was a hilariously low $20, but they were donating all the money to the Science Museum of Minnesota.

The basic idea is that you can snap apart all the components like, Arduino Pro Mini, buzzer, switch, and so on. Mysteriously, the ProtoSnap doesn’t have a web page or catalog entry for it yet, nor has Sparkfun sent out a press release. Eventually, presumably, they’ll sell ’em but who knows how much they’ll be?

  1. I also picked up one of these; however, I didn’t attend the class. Was there any documentation or data sheets handed out on these?
