Eon Smart Watch 3!

Upon my return from my Central Europe tour (realistically – Belgium and Germany), I had the parcel everybody loves, A lovely little cuboid from Itead Studio! Contained within were my Eon Smart Watch 3 PCB’s, the ultimate model. As with always, I set to building then pretty soon after receiving the PCB’s as they were […]

Today’s advances

Its been somewhat fast from PCB order to arrival (around 2 weeks, the standard time for an ITEAD order). I’m really happy though the silkscreen quality on the motherboard PCB’s seems to have deteriorated a bit. Regardless, […]
