This shield expands on the capabilities of the basic arduino and provides a great platform to add further sensors, controllers etc.

And it's very good value too!? :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous coat for walking the dog!, 18 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm 6'5" with a 48" chest and the XXL is a perfect fit. With room for a heavy fleece or jumper, shirt and vest underneath, this is awesome for braving the english winter.

I've been wearing this coat dog walking for hours in the rain now and can report that it is 100% waterproof.

The only negative review is the hood - which really isn't big enough - however since I wear it with a waxed hat that wasn't actually that much of a problem for me...

Overall I can heartily recommend this item and feel it is an absolute bargain for the price!?

4.0 out of 5 stars More of the same - but good with it!, 14 Jun. 2005
OK - anyone who's read the Fencer or Shadow books will immediately feel at home here. KJ Parker lays out the different factions deftly and sets up the protagonists in her usual style; her characterisation might be heavy-handed and formulaic, but at least it is to her own formula!!!
Whereas I might wish she wouldn't semaphore the different characteristics quite so plainly (the engineer, who can turn everything (and one) into a device; the Duke who can apply the rules of hunting to deal with problems etc etc)I do like her creations so my grumbling is subdued.
The story rattles along and has enough action to make you want to keep reading to find out what happens next. I really felt for some of those poor mercenaries!
I predict like the two previous trilogies it will be "two books stretched out to three" for marketing reasons but will still be a MUST HAVE for the intelligent fantasy reader. Enjoy!
