I stumbled across a new Arduino compatible board on Tindie (tindie.com). Manufacturer is BBTech from Taiwan and they ship free across the globe. Board itself is an AtTiny 85 with a micronucleus bootloader.
After only one week of waiting I received a package and the new boards neatly packed in a padded mailer bag.
After a wildly succesful Kickstarter campaign the Spark Cores (http://spark.io) are now shipping. I got mine last week and here are the first photos. Really nice design and the protoboard is an added bonus.
I’ll keep posting more when I get time to dwell into these.
