      This is an ambitious project and I think you may want to push back some of your initial testing until the balls are more representational of the final product.

      I feel like you are concentrating a lot on implementation which is important but I would work on look and feel a little bit earlier in the process.
      It looks loaded but it will be great if you can follow it.
      Good luck!

    Sparkfun group order! 

    I’ll be placing an order around noon tomorrow (4/12). If you want to combine shipping on any parts you need, post it in the comments. If the price doesn’t run too high, I’m happy fronting the money and collecting on Thursday.
