    As long time hacker,but first time poster to Vancouver Hack Space, I am planning to attend the Arduino night presentation.

    I have been working with the Arduino platform for some time and have developed an open-source hack of the Lilypad that may be of interest to the group.

    After the presentation, I would like to discuss joining the group and the possibility of demonstrating the project at a later date.

    I’ll even bring some project swag.

    In the mean time, check out the project:

    Project STRUIX is an approachable, scalable & highly modular open-source multiprocessor platform.

    STRUIX is a physical computing architecture designed to facilitate experimentation with intercommunicating multiprocessor, multiprogram, parallel computing applications.

    It is compatible with Arduino and leverages the circular topology of the LilyPad.

    STRUIX will appeal to both makers and experimenters interested in exploring parallel programming and increasing the throughput & power of their microcontroller applications.

    STRUIX is easily mountable and ruggedized for field deployment in harsh environments using readily available materials (tutorial pending).

    Tutorials for converting the Lilypad, using XBEE, components designed to maximize ease of use and many useful examples & downloads are available on the website.

    @Mark L: Sounds interesting. I’m interested in the multiprocessor support for the Arduino. I looked in to a little bit before but didn’t find anything useful.

    Looking forward to meeting you at the hackspace.
