Oh major drool!

The uses I can imagine for those are beyond description.

I'm going to use my company and try to get a sample unit.

I have two of the RGB24T model, but have not gotten around to playing with them yet. They are not breadboard friendly. :(

What did you guys pay for them?

I would only imagine that we got them for the same price anyone else would pay... (I don't do financials)

For instance, you can buy them at SFE:

Hmm, I might have to pick up a pair of these for some flashier buttons on J5. He currently has some scavenged mini-buttons from an old computer case, which do the trick, but are ugly as sin.

Picture a single button -

It dimly displays "sleeping". Press it once and it changes to "run". Press it again and it alternates between "running" and "stop" Press it again, and it displays "run again" and alternates to "sleep" every couple seconds.

Yeah, I need a couple of these...

at $50 a piece, they are pricey... not exactly hobby pricing for a button.

The definition of "hobby pricing" is open to debate, with little humanoids approaching $2000 at their entry point, and with hobbiests getting into stereo machine vision on large scale flying autonomous/adaptive 'bots.
