      I’ve been a computer hobbyist since 1979.
      This gadget is without doubt the best £38 I’ve ever spent. My first computer, 6502 with 4k, cost £280 !
      I’ve some simple demo’s I can post if you’re interested;
      buttons, swipes,gauges,leds,strain gauge, altimeter, 16xpwm etc
      Thanks, Phil, from Dave, Oldham.
