Finally found some time today to solder the parts onto my first OSH Park PCB.

The primary motivation for this was to learn Eagle and try out OSH Park, so I wanted to make something with only components I'd already purchased, and that's why it has a whole Arduino Micro attached to it even though a smaller board (or even just a lone microcontroller) would've been sufficient.

I didn't get the displays lined up quite right, so there's a small gap between them that looks obvious in this photo but isn't so bad if you're further away and looking at it head-on. But my learning for next time is to watch out for the positioning of odd-sized components

Apart from the passives, headers and sockets, this is all stuff from Adafruit:

3x display: http://www.adafruit.com/products/902

3x display driver, chained together: http://www.adafruit.com/products/453

Chronodot: http://www.adafruit.com/products/255

Arduino Micro: http://www.adafruit.com/products/1086

(although these are bi-color displays, I just wired the red and green LEDs together... I like the shape/size of the displays but didn't need the bi-color-ness this time, and this way I didn't need to double up on the driver chips.)

It's all about sensors.

This is great the more sensors we can connect to the more rich our interactions will be.

Is this a mosquito?

No. It's an insect spy drone for urban areas, already in production, funded by the US Government. It can be remotely controlled and is equipped with a camera and a microphone. It can land on you, and it may have the potential to take a DNA sample or leave RFID tracking nanotechnology on your skin. It can fly through an open window, or it can attach to your clothing until you take it in your home.
