Post Hitechnic protoboard as an I2C master?
Has anyone tried to use the Hitechnic protoboard as
a bit banged I2C master to bridge I2C transactions
from an NXT out to an ATmega328 (and/or Arduino)
acting as a slave?

I'm thinking one could use Xander's I2C api to toggle
two digital output pins to get the protoboard to act
like a master.

I'm currently using five of the digital output pins on
the protoboard to write a binary number to the microcontroller.
I'd like to reclaim three of those pins for other uses
by just writing to the microcontroller over I2C.

It's theoretically possible. I'd love for you to get it working, I am pretty sure there would be a LOT of people who'd be very happy to see it. If you do get it working, I'd be happy to make it part of the Driver Suite :)
