Topic: Can I make a parody icon based on Arduino icon? (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

Hi, all.

My friends and I are making open-source sensor board based on Arduino. The name is "HelloBoard".
HelloBoard is a Scratch-compatible sensor board, so it has a slider, button, mic and cds like a PicoBoard.

I want to use a HelloBoard icon based on Arduino icon with parody and humor like below.


Is there any restriction or sth to use it?

The logo was not designed by the arduino team and as far as I can remember, it was released on a sharealike licence or something like that.

I use it on my site: http://www.duinoaday.co.uk

Hej hej,

did you know that Scratch is supporting Arduino and that there will be work done to make Scratch's next generation export Arduino sketches as well?

Just as a reference,

Dave Mellis is planning to work on Scratch for Arduino as you can see at his MIT's profile page:

Mellis went to MIT?  Didn't know that.. :O

+[ch8734] Respect :)

indeed +5 internets for you, mellis.

I have a serious question about colleges, inspired by the fact that you went to MIT:

How much do colleges appreciate tinkering? It's a time consuming, addictive hobby that is very productive IMHO, but it also tends to suck time away from school work, so it's kind of a win/loss.

I apologize in advance for shifting the thread topic

I'd be interested to know if colleges care about hobbies as well.

I'd love to go to MIT (not that it's particularly in my family's budget at the moment), but I've got serious doubts I'd get it (even considering my straight-A performance in High School thus far).

Straight A's huh? Yea I'm falling off that track quickly... I mean my GPA's gonna be around 92-93 senior year, but I'd hate to see kids who just did their homework all the time go to a better college than me because I chose to devote time to what I hope will eventually become a profession.

I completely agree with that. Schools don't have enough around to spot young talent in things that they don't teach. I'm sure there are a lot of kids around who could easily do a job in electronics without any of the formal qualifications you gain at school.

Because of my outside interests, I was pretty close to the best in my class for high school physics and biology.  My physics teacher actually did recognize that my outside interests were helping my schoolwork... but that was only after I did a science fair project that was related to semiconductors and some basic electronics experiments.  Granted... that was 1977 and the Integrated Circuit concept was sill somewhat of a baby then.  Seemed avant garde at the time.   ;D

Define "better college" ?  Is that one of those academically rigorous places where you won't have time to do any more non-schoolwork hacking?  (I was so happy as an EE major when Lancaster's TTL and CMOS cookbook showed up in the college bookstore.  What class are THOSE for, I checked eagerly...   Ah.  Some graduate chemistry class dealing with building lab equipment...  Back to my smith charts and calculus...   Sigh.)

A place that my parents want me to go.

I personally have lost nearly all hope in the modern education system (at least that of the U.S.). Besides the fact that much if my time is spent at home studying things I will never again use in my life, I don't get rewarded for what I learn on my own.

And this extends further into college as well, from what I gather. AND what's worse - I can't expect a very nice job unless I attend one of the 1st tier colleges, as my counselor calls them... even though I have heard from infinitely many people telling me that I can learn the same things at almost any college.
