Here’s an update for everyone who has asked when they can purchase ScrewShields: the shipment of parts we’re waiting on from China should be here in about three weeks. Once in, we’ll bag ’em like crazy and get them out to the online retailers. Thanks for your patience!

Arduino space cruiser

Friend of WingShield Industries (FOWSI) and all-around awesome guy Collin Cunningham posted this photo of his ScrewShield mounted on an Arduino Mega. In doing so he has created an excellent looking space cruiser. Our own Tod Kurt says:

Now I want to make stop motion space battles with various Arduinos equipped with various kinds of “armament”.

Let’s hold him to it!

WSI at Maker Faire

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

Here is a happy WingShield Industries customer in the Maker Shed at the Bay Area Maker Faire ’09. He was a good sport for letting me photograph him getting a ScrewShield to buy. (Based on the knowing look, I’d say he’s plotting something mischievous to build with all the new goodies.)

We had an excellent run at the Faire, selling out all but two of the ScrewShields in the first day. Those were grabbed up on Sunday morning, and the sad little empty bin was relegated to a lower shelf. We’ll be making up another batch soon, and those will be for sale online at the Maker Shed and a few other awesome kit stores.
