  1. *** PHINIX AURORA ***

    Nice work Mike! Is that acrylic going to need lighting up? Also where do you get the brass inserts from?
  2. Back in stock - LED strips

    An old friend back in store. http://www.phenoptix.com/products/flexible-led-tape
  3. Sorry for the delayed reply Jay! The only PS3 stock we have left is the tamiya blue thumbs, but with postage to the USA you'd probably be better off buying from modsticks direct
  4. Clearing out some stock, at clearance prices: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=281091499364
  5. A bit slow on the draw here, but we sell LEDs from www.phenoptix.com. Not as cheap as Cheaps recommendations, but we do sell some rather nice quality LEDs!
  6. Led spectrum/analyzer/movement

    You can always prototype it on the Arduino then swap it out for a barebones version with just the ATMega328 and whatever else you'll need to run it.
  7. Acrylic letters and lasers

    Probably a little late to the party, but we can cut acrylic! http://www.phenoptix.com/products/laser-cutting-service Looks like it would be an interesting bit of laser marquetry.
  8. Electric help with LED´s

    Any pics of the arrays in question? I do like a nice load of LEDs!
  9. Mini Robot Wireless contoll and motor controll question

    You could do all of what you want with an Arduino really, a raspberry pi would also work but not so much of the work would be done for you! With an Arduino you could use a motor shield for the motors https://www.adafruit.com/products/81(actually a bit better than the official Arduino one we carry, but give us a week and we'll have this one in too). A couple of these for wireless http://www.phenoptix.com/products/adafruit-xbee-module-wireless-communications-for-arduino-1mw-1-mile-radius or one of these for bluetooth http://www.phenoptix.com/products/seeeduino-bluetooth-shield-for-arduino and then you could mount one of these: http://www.phenoptix.com/products/adafruit_jpeg_camera_ntsc_video for your spy cam. As you want the controller (arduino) to do a few things you'd most likely be better off with an Arduino Mega http://www.phenoptix.com/products/arduino-mega-2560-r3-open-source-electronics-prototyping-platform As for putting it all together, that's something we can work through!
  10. Any one with a CNC who can cut me some bits

    That would be good, send it to ben at phenoptix dot com. That's a very nice box of goodies! Is it in response to this? http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pimoroni/picade-the-arcade-cabinet-kit-for-your-raspberry-p
  11. Any one with a CNC who can cut me some bits

    how thick is the ply and how big is it? I have a laser cutter than can cut up to 5mm A4 size.
  12. This week's discount code is....

    Blood and Chrome's release this week we're knocking 10% off our TinyCylon boards. They're SMD and also still a prototype so they're not perfect. But if you want a go they're available here: http://www.phenoptix.com/products/phenoptix-tinycylon-12-led-larson-scanner-kit-smd-soldering-kit and the code is Frack!
  13. Just have to say i love you guys

    Thanks Mayhems! Love your bigbox video, takes me back somewhat! Very neat job on the car, and that arcade panel is amazing. Hope we can continue to supply you with the good stuff!
  14. New Products!

    I've got one to build from their kickstarter! We also have some custom face plates with alternative fonts. Depending on popularity we'll be cutting custom faceplates
  15. Hello and Introductions

    Hey all! I'm Ben and I run phenoptix, a UK based Purveyors of Cool Things! I've been a fan of MNPCTech for a long while and I'm the owner of a Special Edition Copper Ruler! I'm a modder myself and have done mainly console mods in the past, along with house mods that I'm forced to do by my wife! The forum already has a great buzz and I'm really looking forward to watching it and helping it take shape! We have our own section where we tout our wares and may even give stuff away. We'll also be posting some how tos and reviews. We have lots of LEDs, Arduinos, Raspberry Pis and a laser cutter, so there should be a lot to see!
