Octoscroller matrix controller.
« on: February 21, 2015, 05:37:11 PM »
I have just got word from the Captain that the Octoscroller is a go.

I will be ordering 50 boards from Seeed Studio using the gerber files that are available from creator of the board. Still debating whether to spend the extra $20.00 for the order to make them in black.

 For the 18 members who paid $15.00 for the Neo I will be sending you everything you need to make a complete Octoscroller. Soon I will create a link in the store for a presale of board/parts.

I say go for the Black!  I am sure there are enough of us willing to pay a few extra dollars to help cover the difference.

my 2 cents.

Fuchsia.

Black sounds good to me as well.

The parts are 8 16-pin IDC connectors, one buffer chip and two 17x2 male headers. IF they were bought from Mouser they would be expensive. So I plan to provide a kit in the store. They will ship in small flat rate.

$20 extra for the entire order of 50 boards in black? Sure!! $20 extra per board for black - no thanks!!

Of course I'm NOT going to be the white sheep, so I'm good for black too :)

That was a tribute to AC/DC - black in back.   I used upsidedowntext.com text generator, but there are a lot of variations.
