Comparisons are sometimes unbecoming. In the case of BoardX, however, it’s absolutely needed. Turns out an inventive DIY enthusiast needed a platform with more oomph than your average Arduino chip. What he came up with was BoardX.
Even if some of you (thanks for the wonderful picture, Bill) already realized it, we are officially announcing a big Christmas surprise for all Arduino users in North America: Radioshack sells Arduino in most of its 6000+ stores all around US!
