The Great Internet Migratory Box of Electronics Junk

Box Code: Gray-J

It is with a substantial degree of embarassment that I admit I have far underperformed the expectations of this great communal endeavor.  I’ve had the Gray-J box from The Great Internet Migratory Box of Electronics Junk since August of last year, and have just today finally sent it onward :-/

Since I’m clearly not active enough with my electronics puttering to make great use of the contents, I’ve decided to acquire just two items:

  • A set of small screwdrivers
  • A USB-Serial adapter

In return, I’ve added to the box:

  • A fully functional (and extremely hackable) JP1 remote complete with parallel port programming adapter
  • Two Analog Devices microcontroller kits with programmers and software
  • A USB-to-Parallel adapter (might come in handy for the JP1 programmer 🙂 )
  • A Microsoft Fingerprint Reader with open source linux drivers.  Doesn’t work with 64-bit windows nor Windows 7, but might have some fun internal parts to hack at, or could be fun just to toss on an existing linux-based project.

Enjoy, Ben!
