Hi guys!

I've been told this is the right place for this so here goes...

I've made a USB board called PeekyPokey with an API so that you can use .NET languages such as C# for interfacing with electronics stuff like relays, RFID tag readers, tactile buttons, rotary encoders, motors, keypads, sensors, servos and things like that.

Here's the project home page on CodePlex:

http://www.peekypokey.org/

The API also comes with an extensive toolkit containing classes for the PC side of things too - like a built in webserver, gamepad drivers, virtual keys, MIDI interface, HID interface and so on - things you can use to control electronic devices. The software is free and most of the PC driver stuff actually works without the hardware.

In essence, PeekyPokey has 8 general input/outputs, a virtual COM port, 3.3V and 5V power supplies. It kind of brings Windows PCs and electronics together in pretty much the same way IOIO does for Android.

The PeekyPokey board targets programmers curious of embedded electronics programming and hardware interfacing. The whole idea is to play, explore, learn and have fun with electronics.

I'm wondering if you'd be interested in me writing an article about the board and how to use it?

NOTE: I'm not selling the boards, I'm just the creator.

Thanks!
