Arduino Duemilanove Clone

Just thought I’d share one of the most creative clone names I’ve seen yet (look where “Arduino Duemilanove” would be on a traditional board):

:P!

Or you can do a complete knock off :

Haha true. I just love how they wrote Compatible right on the board ;).

Well at least they gave credit to the original product… sort of.

Agreed. It’s just that most people think up a unique name (usually “…Duino”) and then write in the description it’s compatible, rather than the actual board ;D.

They basically just added “Compatible” changed some colors… and sold it as their own… but I must say, I do like the black alot more… I would’ve probably bought the board just for that difference. lol

Seeedstudio’s where it’s at, now their boards are badass… and they actually took time to create their own. :smiley:

That’s what I was thinking! I’m thinking I’ll eventually get a Mega, but in the quest to find a clone that’s cheaper, I found one for about 50% price, AND it looks realllly badass!

AND it looks realllly badass!

Not as redass as the Seeeduino Mega:

;D

Lefty

Yeah, I like the color/look of the Seeduino Mega, but I’m not big on how the Digital I/Os are arranged. And the fact that you have to solder them on yourself (I’m solderphobic ;)) isn’t pleasing to me either ;D.

Seeedstudio has a mega with more i/o ports, and it’s even way smaller than the normal mega… it’s only 2mm bigger than a duemilanove, but I wish they gave a color choice… maybe pay more for other colors… I would’ve paid and extra $5 for different colors :stuck_out_tongue:

it even fits in the containers they sell for $3.50! lol I had to pull out the camera and take some pictures… these cases are badass… and the mega as well :slight_smile: Guess I should’ve taken more of the duemilanove vs the mega… but you get the point, lol

I wish my mega was black it looks great.
