Arduino + XKCD

tigoeDecember 24th, 2008

Arduino’s shown up in some unusual places, but this XKCD cartoon‘s the most random I’ve seen.  Thanks Randall for the mention. I think Cory Doctorow is in one of the composite-numbered panels.

    Yeah, I’ve actually had an Arduino Diecimila sublimate on me in a previous prototype. It seems this is a recurring problem, you guys should look in to this.

    We’ll be happy to look into it if you had posted anything about it on the forum in
    the “hardware” section.

    Why do you say it’s a recurring problem? Can you point me to any evidence supporting your statement? actually the Arduino is a very robust platform.

    Hello Massimo,

    I hope you realise that I was joking about an Arduino sublimating. It is chemically very unlikely for a PCB and electronic components to sublimate during normal use.

    I love the Arduino platform, and I’m glad it’s finding its way into new parts of culture every day.

    Wow, this is great! Arduino and XKCD finally together! when i saw today’s comic, i run to the arduino site to post the news, but obviously it was already there! 🙂

    Long live XKCD and Arduino, the best platform i’ve dealt with 🙂
