The two Arduino saber originals have teamed up to bring you the STREAM Core™ RGB
Version 1 featuring hardware by Prowerkstatt
and the S.T.R.E.A.M.
software system developed by JakeSoft
Based on the venerable DIYino™ Stardust V3
, this board comes fully programmed with the S.T.R.E.A.M. firmware. There is no sketch
to compile, no code
to download, and no libraries
to install; just wire it and enjoy. (This is NOT FX-SaberOS/LightsaberOS and shares no code in common; this is a totally new ProtowerkStatt/JakeSoft collaboration!
