panStick is a USB mother board for panStamps. Simply program a panStamp with the modem application, place it on a panStick and plug the dongle to your computer. This is the simplest way to connect wireless networks to any computer applications, including lagarto-swap and SWAPdmt.
panStick is also a compact development board. Thanks to the available contacts, you can solder pin sockets and connect your sensors directly to your panStick whilst keeping your panStamp accessible via USB.
