Perhaps one day we will simply tell our computers what we need without also having to tell them how to do what is needed. This article reminded me of the Borg when they rapidly evolve in defense of newly encountered weapons.

Check out the new BrainPad educational board from +GHI Electronics using .NET Micro Framework. Next week you'll be able to program it using Scratch! Any NashMicronians interested in a group buy to get the 10 qty discount price? Comment below if you're interested.

Info about the Scratch bits...

This is really cool if you want to play with VHDL, Verilog, or any number of other micro languages.  Next month's meeting will be about Verilog and FPGAs.  If you want to get a little practice in advance, this could be a good place to play.
Edit, save, simulate, synthesize SystemVerilog, Verilog, VHDL and other HDLs from your web browser.

A quick google brought up this huge list of FPGAs if you'd like to try it.
