I love it when a plan comes together. Here are the first two production "Petra" boards, assembled using the SMT50 pick and place machine. I have a lot more to make, but these are testing well.

Paused production for the moment. I need to get the vision working on the PnP machine and that's stuck until I get the instructional videos translated from mandarin. Hoping to have that completed in the next few days.

Very cool. Also do let us know when a Windows or web version of your Bluetooth console is available.

Definitely not a DIY pick and place, but a Chinese pick and place. For details follow along on the SMT50 project. I'm documenting my experiences buying, installing and using the machine.

Tim, are you doing the production of these with a DIY pick/place machine? Interesting. Can you describe your setup (eg. wave soldering?) and experience with operating them for low run production runs?
Also, thank you for the inspiration of using TinyBasic as an interpreter. I started a project for a PoE IoT sensor platform using similar concepts but different implementation. http://hackaday.io/project/3380-easy-iot-ethernet-sensor
