The web platform, December’s project of the month, is our second to be offered as a kit or as assembled hardware. We guessed that the kit would be the most popular option, but we were totally wrong. Seeed Studio’s latest report shows the assembled version is preferred almost 3 to 1. Is it the SSOP FTDI chip?

Seeed now lists assembled hardware by default, tick the box to get a kit instead and save $5. If you accidentally bought a kit, but wanted assembled hardware, there’s still time to contact Seeed to make a switch before the orders ship.

Thanks to everyone who supported this project. We’re busy working on an introduction to PIC programming for the web platform, look for that article next week.

The web platform is available as a kit for $35, including worldwide shipping. Seeed Studio will assemble yours for $5 more.
