Sun SPOTs aren't just for any old geek. No sir. They are for the "discerning geek." The geek who knows a thing or two about what she wants... The geek who understands the importance of appropriate accessorizing. You say you already got yourself the Brilldea eProtoboard?
Well, now there is more bling for the Sun SPOT who has everything, and its just in time for the holidays. Circuitmonkey.com has just introduced the Breakout Board for the Sun SPOT. I've used this board and I must say its pretty fun. It brings out all the connectors of the eDemoboard to a much more useable connectors. There is a serial port with DB-9 connector. There are servo connectors that can connect directly to either standard or vEx™-style servos. All the I/O lines for both analog and digital I/O come out to convenient screw terminals and even board through holes where you can connect a scope probe if you are so inclined. The on board buttons are also replicated on this board to give you some flexibility in UI prototyping. It connects to the Sun SPOT header via the 20-pin header (don't forget the cable!). It is all very convenient. Give it a try.
