    So…why does this hit the blog now?
    The shield has been around.

    Is it just a random ad?

    I’ve got an Arduino with an ethernet shield wired up to my modified Pizzazz pizza maker so it tweets on Twitter (and sends me a text message) when my pizza is done cooking. You can find it on Twitter at @ThePizzazz. It’s not really necessary, but a fun learning project…and it’s sometimes useful if I have music playing, am in another room further away, or am outside. :-)

      @Bjorn, that’s pretty cool.

      Now I want pizza.

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
