Yes, I'm not completely done (grumble grumble), and I might not be able to count my says right, but I worked on the rendering software for my project after skiing today.
I didn't get too much done today, I had a bit of a rough day.
I charged this lipo with my charger I made and soldered some stuff. Sorry about the lack of good photos!
#hardware-party day 9?/10?
I finished soldering my power board, it's charging lipos now. The one chip does get a bit uncomfortably hot, but I think it's expected, and I should probably put a heatsink on it.
I messed up the design for one part, I was however able to hack together a solution. I hope. Will finish testing it tomorrow, hopefully integrating some.
This is taking longer than expected. Oh well.
Ok, I'm starting to run out of time. The printer is still broken, and this whole thing is taking longer than expected.
Tested the buttons today, messed with some software.
#hardware-party day 7/10!
I soldered together part of my graphing calculator power board, some of the leads are really small!
Kids, the components look really big on the internet, but are often tiny in real life. Don't do what I did.
