My Seeed Idea

Share. Vote. Discuss. See.

Share your ideas, tell us what you think of other people’s ideas and join the discussion.
Idea Guidelines:
1 – Idea needs to be something we can do. This means, although we appreciate general feedback (for example, “this is good!” or “this hurts!”), here we are looking for ideas we can work on.
2 – Specific. The more details you can provide, the better. Heck—you can attach files to ideas or a reference link to show us what you want!

To get help or support, download, or more information, please visit our wiki site.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

        • Arduino Dial Up Modem shield

          Dial Up modem's days are long gone but Land line still exists either in the form of home pbx or PSTN, An Arduino based Dial Up modem shield can be used for a lot of fun projects.
          Modem chips are already available with AT Command support
          Currently there is no shield to interface arduino with phone line
          This shield can also become a base for Arduino corded telephony with additional sheilds for setting up arduino based Home PABX e.g 4 port intercom shield or Voip shield

                    I would rather design a PCB knowing which parts you will support and incorporate those parts into my design instead of finding out the parts you support after I design a PCB and submit my Gerbers.

                        • Create waterproof Grove connectors

                          If Grove (4 pin) connectors could be waterproof, that would make it easier to use outdoors/in harsh environments.

                          Wouldn't have to be IP67 or IP68 compliant, just something a bit more robust that what exists.

                          You'd need bulkhead connectors as well, so you could put a controller/batteries in a waterproof box, and the sensors someplace else.

                            Hi Andrew:
                            Thanks for your advice, we believe that waterproof function is important in harsh environments for groves. But since the sensor itself needs to be waterproof, we believe that an enclosure for the whole grove module may be better.
                            Please let us know your opinion.

                            In my case [FireFox 33.1.1 on Win 7 64bit] the "Sign In" button jumps left when the slothful Facebook button finally appears. The timing places the Facebook button under my mouse pointer at exactly the same time as perform a mouse click -- hugely frustrating!

                            I suggest you move the Facebook button to a position under or above the Sign In button.

                                The 3D printing should show the output design diameters for confirmation after uploading the STL file. Now there is an 3D image of the design and volume being calculated. I would like to see the volume units and general diameters for confirmation of my design. If I saw that my print dimensions match the ones on the site it would be very helpful. I would imagine that this would make things very clear and lower the ordering threshold from customers also.

                                    A vacuum and pressure sensor that is Arduino compatible that can measure from 30" mercury vacuum to approximately 3 atmospheres pressure. It'd be great for those of us using Arduino as engine ECUs to be able to have fine-grained control of engine parameters by knowing intake vacuum or pressure. Knowing the intake cross-sectional volume, the intake vacuum or pressure (in the case of blown engines) could also be used as an intake air flow sensor, which will really be beneficial to those of us using heated water injection to create extra cylinder pressure via steam expansion (to measure if we're…

                                      We think this is a very professional area for the industrial control, would you please give us more advise about the popular sensors in this area, so we can make our products more convenient for you to use.

                                      LinkIt update requests:
                                      -Antennas for the LinkIt to be on the board (at least the GPS). The GPS is heavy.
                                      -Make it so that the SD card can be accessed at the same time the serial to computer is running.
                                      -Have an external power pins for powering the unit and charging the battery.
                                      -Move the microSD card away from the USB connection.

                                      • stop overcharging for shipping Fusion PCBs

                                        Please charge customers for the correct shipping weight instead of the maximum for PCBs of any given size. Most companies do this.

                                        For an example, Arduino (shield)-sized boards are only one third the size of the 10cm x 10cm board category that must be used to buy them, but they are only ONE THIRD of the size and weight. We have to pay (express) shipping for TRIPLE the weight of the actual order and this can be substantially more expensive.

                                        Please use the actual board size to compute the proper weight. Many other lower-cost PCB prototyping services do this, and…

                                        • "Service and Gifts" -> "Service" and "Gifts"

                                          Please split the category of your shop's website for "Service and Gifts" into two categories "Service" and "Gifts". These categories have nothing to do with each other, and it makes getting to Fusion services a little more difficult.

                                          I'm guessing that new people to the site and going to have trouble finding the PCB service ("Fusion") if they don't know that it's called "Fusion" and would not think to look in a "Gifts" category...

                                          thanks
