An article about my Pixie on Microchip's magazine as an example for an interesting use of their PIC12F.

A cool project made with my Pixie!
 
Feel the magic of fiber optics! This guide will lead you through adding fiber optic ruffles to a skirt or dress, and then change lighting modes with a twirl or twitch of your hips. You can use an existing dress and add your own ruffles, or make one from whole cloth -- your imagination is the ...

Sure. The firmware is open. You can disable the temperature protection altogether if you trust that your controller will never go haywire and if catching fire is not a risk.
I'm looking together with Adafruit into this issue. For all we know now, this is something about the programming process, since the problem seems to go away when the unit is reprogrammed.

A scaled-up version of the IOIO Plotter I designed at the Android booth in Mobile World Congress.
We found a crazy little robot that draws line versions of your face at Google's Android booth at Mobile World Congress.

My IOIO Plotter is featured on the new Android Experiments website!
Android Experiments is a celebration of all the creative and boundary-pushing Android work of developers everywhere - as well as an open invitation for creators to submit their own experiments to the gallery.

Yes, definitely! Thanks for sharing that. The source code is available here: https://github.com/ytai/IOIOPlotter. I've made improvements to the rendering algorithm to support different scribbling styles that I haven't yet pushed. There are no CAD files for my physical build. It was mostly improvised out of piece of wood and random objects found around the house. Shouldn't be hard to build, it's just a couple of reels driven by stepper motors and a simple hobby-servo-based apparatus for lifting the pen.

Here's a cool little DYI kit I made for my son, combining basic electronics with Legos.
