    Really easy to use. With a google search you can find the diagram explaining how to hook it on your arduino and a source code sample for dumping the distance on the serial monitor. I'm using it on my car to avoid obstacles.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It's really fun, if you like patterns. I thought playing with it would get boring after a while but it don't. When playing with it you find out that some patterns that you thought would be stable are not, and vice versa. There are patterns that you can only...
    Cons:

    Pros:

    Cons:
    You have to install an outdated version of the Netflix app (19/12/2012, this may change in the future). While the netflix strea...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
