I think I've been shopping too much at the Arduino store lately...

Has anyone ever figured out a good use for those stickers that Arduino gives you when you buy a board?

@dronebot-workshop Show off!

First computer 1959. Retired from my own computer company 2004.
Hardware - Expert in 1401, and 360, fairly knowledge in PC plus numerous MPU's and MCU's
Major Languages - Machine language, 360 Macro Assembler, Intel Assembler, PL/I and PL1, Pascal, Basic, C plus numerous job control and scripting languages.
My personal scorecard is now 1 PC hardware fix (circa 1982), 1 open source fix (at age 82), and 2 zero day bugs in a major OS.

Didn't know they came with stickers.Β  Must be where the value-added is over the sub-$3 MPU's I buy.Β  😆Β 

3 lines of code = InqPortal = Complete IoT, App, Web Server w/ GUI Admin Client, WiFi Manager, Drag & Drop File Manager, OTA, Performance Metrics, Web Socket Comms, Easy App API, All running on ESP8266...

@inq I didn't know you bought Arduinos. I thought you were just an ESP8266 guy.

Thus... why I used the word MPU instead of Arduino.Β  Just because it can quackΒ  with the best of ducks, but can also meow like a cheta.Β  I still have a few ArduinosΒ  gathering dust I bought twelve years ago. 😉Β

The stickers are what separates a truly great microcontroller from just a bunch of transistors.Β  Pimoroni also give you stickers, which is why I buy their stuff, and DF Robot sends funny looking orange clip-on creatures.

That's why I no longer have one, I guess! But actually that was 21 years ago, and I think it was car audio equipment that drove us apart (pun not intended), I was a bit of a fanatic back then. She objected to my removing the spare tire so I could store a spare subwoofer.Β  Right then, I knew where my priorities were!

Not yet.

To really foul up, use a computer.
