Getting Olimex Boards

Olimex Friday Quiz Prize
Two weeks ago we won the 18th Olimex's Friday Quiz: a twitter competition for Olimex boards, that for the case was an Arduino Leonardo like AVR-T32U4.

This board is an entry level in the Olimex products with a really interesting price, to lower the cost it uses the ATmega32u4 (that includes USB) and has a standard linear 3.3V regulator instead of the switching DC/DC included with most of Olimex products.

At the begin of the project we were looking for an hardware partner and we tried, without success, to get Olimex support. After several months we decided, as a first step, to be in the contest; we won at first shot, even if it was really a simple question and random.org was friendly that day.

As now we still don't have the Olimex support, but we're purchasing some extra boards in discount and they shall be used for a Stand-alone garage door to control via Souliss Android App.

 Hopefully we will convince them once included the MOD-WIFI and MOD-IO2 boards in Souliss supported hardware.
