This week I'm working on custom code for the SMART Response XE classroom communicator. It's based on an ATMega128RFA1 which has a built in ZigBee transceiver, 384x136x2-bpp LCD and full keyboard. These are available used on eBay. They were discontinued several years ago, but are an interesting device for the price they're selling for (~$10 each). I've written a support library which allows using the LCD and keyboard. One of my first project ideas is to write a wired and wireless VT100 terminal.

Here's my github library: SMART Response library

Library? We don't need no stinkin' library...we write our own

Which hardware package are you using to add support for the ATmega128RFA1 in the Arduino IDE?

I'm using the board support from a SparkFun (discontinued) product which used the same chip:

is0-mick was the pioneer with this board. He shared a lot of useful info here:

I wrote an OTA bootloader for it. Here's a blog post about it:
