Hardware Hacks: Using a quadrature encoder (rotary switch) with Arduino
This is, in fact, the most successful rotary encoder code I've found to date.

Arduino Tower Bridge on Vimeo
"Designed by Oliver Rokison a teacher at St Paul's School. This project connects to the Tower Bridge twitter account and mimics the movements of the real tower bridge." Fun.

Tinkerkit: a physical computing toolkit for designers: Main/Home Page
"TinkerKit is an Arduino-compatible physical computing prototyping toolkit aimed at design professionals. The interest in physical computing as an area in development within the creative industries has been increasing rapidly. In response to this! is developing the TinkerKit to introduce fast iterative physical computing methodologies to newcomers, and particularly design professionals." Standardised modules, standardised connectors, Arduino-compatible. I remember Massimo showing me his keyboard-emulating board ages ago. Nice to see Tinker productising the platform, too.

microprinter / FrontPage
"Hackers across the country are buying up old old receipt printers and imaginatively repurposing them into something new. We call them microprinters." pbwiki site for gathering resources around microprinters. Nice! Still waiting on mine (from the same load as Roo's) to arrive, though...

Lovely. I am totally pumped about buying an Arduino very, very soon. This'll make some more compact hacking relatively easy.
