We have 60 Wiring boards, Rev 3 (thanks Hernando!) and designed and built a shield board for the Wiring IO board that allows for:

   * 4 DC motors (max 9V, 1A each with on-board h-bridge driver)
   * access to the enable/direction pins for external motor control
   * 3 RC Servo motors
   * buffered digital and analog inputs
   * 2 switches and 2 knobs for on-board control
   * 16×2 backlit LCD screen

This is in support of a course for 2nd year Engineering Physics students at UBC, as an introduction to prototyping.  Students work in groups of 4 to design and construct autonomous robots, to build robots like these:

We're about to start using the boards in our labs this week, we'll post up information as we find it.  Still a few bugs in our boards (http://www.engphys.ubc.ca/projectlab/phys253/tinah-board/bugs-and-updates/), but nothing that should prevent us from building some very nice robots this term!

Dear Jon, this is great work, I'll add it to the exhibition section, also to the hardware section. I am working on next software and site update.
best,
Hernando.
