Howdy,

I just thought I would point out something that seemed contradictory.
When you go to http://www.parallax.com it has a banner that says "Simplify with the propeller"
When you click there, it brings up a list of videos on the right hand side.
This is a cool addition, but the last video is titled "propeller + arduino + oLED + wii nunchuck"
I am guessing that the oLED is the prop version, but either way it has a processor on there.
He could have wired the prop96oLED directly to the wii nunchuck through a bread, but instead ran it through an arduino and a propeller demo board.

I just thought this was funny since it is not an example of simplicity, but rather needlessly complex.

Just my 10 bits worth.
