Edit: Can you show us the other end of the cable?

Re: pic: Game hint

The site says something about insert text and pdf here. (You have to enter the URL directly; no link yet.)

Joe, if there wasn't photographic evidence, I'd suspect something was up on your end...Seeing as there is, Lavery Claus has struck.

Reading what is below the five LEDs, each says something about "CHXX", with XX reading (L-R) 03, 02, 01, 00. Except for the far right one, which reads "ERROR". Then you throw in what looks like a reset button. I detect a radio device of some form.

Oh, and there is a website printed on the board. www.divsys.com

Re: pic: Game hint

I call shenanigans (and not just because of Joe's history). Anybody can put a circuit board together with "© 2007 FIRST" silkscreened on it. (I also find it a little strange that FIRST would spend what can only be an appreciable sum on FedExing 1,500 of these things around the world when the kits are also going out reasonably soon.)

That said, I'm lightly seasoning my words in case I need to eat them later.

Re: pic: Game hint

The URL does work, and it points to a known supplier of FIRST (see their logo on the banner here). I'm still cautious.

It definitely is real. Our mentor just got the package himself today via FedEx Saturday delivery. The picture our mentor took shows the same parts that are displayed here. Can't seem to figure anything out yet though.

Re: pic: Game hint

I was gonna think that it all is a part of the new KOP, as the cable has where to connect on this board.
Only problem is it says FIRST2007. If it said FIRST2008, i'd be sure its from the KOP.

What could it be used for, can anyone who knows electronics look at it and tell what he thinks?

Re: pic: Game hint

Oh, I meant the FIRST address. There's no information posted, but the URL navigates to a valid portion of the usfirst.org site. Anyway, there goes my sleep for the rest of the year...
