Pinguino as a self replicating device !!

Self Replicating Pinguino on a breadboard
Hi Guys,

Self Replication
Self-replication is any process by which a thing will make a copy of itself

Now this is a property of Pinguino. This code allows you to copy the bootloader of your Pinguino in a new blank ( or not ) chip.
I tried it with a 18F2550, i don't know if it works with a 18F4550 but it should works.

What do you need ?
- 3 transistors
- 2 LED
- some resistors
- an external 12Vcc power supply. ( 12Vcc from the computer is OK )

I think i will update this code later to use Pinguino as a real PIC18 programmer.

How many Pinguino child will you build ?

Graphic LCD on Pinguino

Marcus, the king of display, made this' arduino compatible' library for Pinguino.
This library, managed by the library user tool of beta 9, can display pictures and text with a lot of different fonts.
I plan to incorporate it in beta 9-02. The development is very fast now and it's time to launch new release more often.
