    I originally intended to ask for a Crumb that allowed expansion of a port to multiple ports. The Crumb would have, say, 4 inputs/outputs, and would communicate with the crumble board by another connection.
    However, allowing 2 crumbles to communicate would allow 6 active ports. The Inter-crumble communication could be similar to the sparkle signalling perhaps.
    If TV remote control reception were provided, (and also transmission), then that could be used.
    Is there any way that interconnection of the USB ports of 2 crumbles could make them communicate?


    That would be great, a “Crumble Cluster” 🙂

    Also it would be good if we could attach USB sticks to the port to read/write data files, or an SD card could be attached to the I2C of the Crumble chip. Can you imagine a Crumble data logger project, for example: A little Crumble bot travelling around, building a map of its surroundings, written to a file…recording sensor readings…

    There could also be two types of Crumble, a basic one with 4 i/o ports and a bigger version with 8 ports. Plus, having all 10 bits of the ADC would be nice…

    The Crumble project has awesome potential, it is so much easier to use than the Arduino, but it does need to be made more capable than it is at the moment – which is possible with a little work!
