The BT master/slave units were less than $8, I have seen BT units on eBay and DX for less than $7 but I dunno the differences since LC sells BT master and BT slave as well as the dual-units and I can't read Chinese to know what-all the differences are so I ordered the best they make.
Swift 80 Series Microscope. 10x and 20x magnification. Got it off Ebay for 50 bucks. Think I got a pretty good deal. Been wanting one for soldering those fine pitched ICs that have been stuck in the parts bin for awhile.
Thats a nice looking microscope (though it looks "backwards" to the ones I am use to seeing) ... 50 bucks hunh, crap first I need a bigger bench (still using my card table ... since 2006)

It's the same hardware, at any rate. I recall stumbling across a firmware download for these modules so ... something to look for perhaps.Stuff to read if you're bored:http://elecfreaks.com/store/download/datasheet/Bluetooth/HC-0305%20serail%20module%20AT%20commamd%20set%20201104%20revised.pdfhttp://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/index.php?title=Bluetooth_Bee
I've remembered I don't know how to source electronics components. I'm itching to get at those parts though.
Eventually I'd like to work towards exploring Autonomous Underwater Bots which I think could be very useful in my field (Hydrographic Survey). For examples schools of robot "fish" to collect data on water conditions. Just need to get my head around components.
