GAMBY: The first 20 packaged kits!GAMBY has officially launched! The first 20 kits have been packaged and are available for sale on! Jimmie Rodgers is also selling them in his touring soldering workshop.

The GAMBY site is also live, featuring detailed assembly instructions, programming documentation, sample resources and tools. The libraries and sample code are all up on Github, too.

GAMBY is Games for Arduino, Made By You — an acronym that I totally didn’t make up retroactively to fit the name. I can’t wait to see what people do with it!

GAMBY: The assembly lineSince this is such a limited run, I’m doing all of the kit-packaging myself. Packing the kits is a bit tedious, but I came up with a fairly good system: I have one container for each part in the kit, so I just move down the line, assembly-line-style, taking one thing from each. The four identical buttons are in four separate bins. No counting (and miscounting) involved!

I’m sure this isn’t a novel invention, but it works very well.
