Previously on Rainbowduino Carnival 2009

Rainbowduino Carnival 2009 was first announced on Oct 27th, 2009, right after the first batch of rainbowduino were sold. Our purpose was to know what’s people doing with Rainbowduino? We wanted to gather all those inspirations and share them to our customers.

One month later, we received 7 cool projects from our customers. It’s not many but each of them had caught our eyes. Now let’s check them out again!
