In my opinion, this is spot-on TRUE! It is a brilliantly-written article--a great read.

ZeroPhone: Pi Zero powered open-source mobile phone @Raspberry_Pi#piday #raspberrypi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/01/20/zerophone-pi-zerp-powered-open-source-mobile-phone-raspberry_pi-piday-raspberrypi/

Epic project from Latvian maker Arsenijs up on Hackaday.io.

Currently, it costs about 50$ in parts, and all the parts are available on eBay. No BGA or other difficultly solderable ICs are used (with the obvious exception of Pi Zero). User interface is written using Python, and there’s a phone-tailored UI framework in the works (so far, it uses pyLCI for interfacing).

Very interesting article. Don't let the hyper-focused concept of "safety" prevent you from letting boys become men or girls become women...or heaven forbid...you from making something useful. The Boy Scouts of America prohibits boys from using "handcrafted" or "homemade" stoves. I've verified the source. This is ridiculous. Our pansy/sissy society is sissifying our people--don't let it be you, and don't let it be your children. Let's instill some ingenuity and smarts into our children instead. Our risks should be calculated, but calculated risks should not be arbitrarily avoided. I encourage you to read the article below, and think about it. ~Gabriel Staples

Use a simple LED as a light sensor on any Arduino digital (or analog) pin! Ingenious!

I just significantly improved this article, so come check it out! I updated many links in it, incl the broken ones from Radio Shack; also added several new sections, including bonus soldering iron sections (hot air rework station & cordless irons), rosin flux, high-power irons & torches, acid-core solders & acid fluxes, & how to tin a soldering iron tip.
