@Andrew0day 8: started coding out the radio and set the frequency and some other vars :blob_hype:. super excited to get this up and running and getting to listen to some jams 🎵
@zuzu-U04GANRG9TN0Day 7 of WHW:
After working on my project and the circuit connection and wondering why it was so hard to get the wires connected I watched a couple YouTube videos and realized that I wasn’t fraying the wires enough. Today was much of a learning day for me as I worked a lot on trying to connect the LED to my connecting wires. I’m getting a head ache from the fumes (lol) so I’m done for today. I’m glad I figured out what I did wrong so I can finish it tomorrow. My brother said he will print my 3D model tomorrow so hopefully that will be done soon! Here a photo of my mistake lol
@OrbitalDev0❄️ WHW Day 7/10
Today, I set up recording for the camera!
Now, I have 6hr history of the camera.
I also got some displays out of old laptops. What should I do with them?
💨 Sprints will be back tomorrow!
I also worked on some scholarships today!
That's all, folks. Go to bed.
@maggie0:winter-hardware-wonderland: Winter Hardware Wonderland -- Day 7 :winter-hardware-wonderland:
finished the top design and ordered the pcbs! here's the production preview
@ShouUrata-U04FHQUHG070Day 5/10 of HWH
Testing the motors, but noticed that the gear is off centered so I will buy a motor shaft centering piece. This should center the gear and spin the wheels of the RC.
@abbanso100day 5/10 for #hardware-party trying to download the jetpack SDK even though the parts is not yet ready
@RebeccaWang0Day 4 of #hardware-party. I took a detour with playing around with LEDs and resistors. Quite blinding.
Thanks @kaidevrim for donating your resistors 🦅 @OrbitalDev0❄️ WHW Day 4/10
Today, I took a break from my project in person to go tour ORU at one of their Quest Days!
As part of my tour, I got to meet professors from their Computation and Mathematics department, and see one of the largest supercomputers in the state!
Don't despair, though! While I was trekking around and prematurely making life decisions, my bird cam was being stress tested for its first day! It held up! 🥳
Tomorrow will probably consist of the same thing, because it's my Sabbath (religious day of rest).
A 💨 Sprint Update
Sprints will now take place at 7:00p CT (1a UTC) on weekdays through the end of the WHW experience!
Have an amazing day (or night ;P)
@BoyneGregg-U04AF4NLSJE0Hardware Winter Wonderland - Day 4 I think
Voice commands are working as intended! I’m not worrying about the matrix flickering because I’m running the pi over one cable instead of the recommended 2, so technically it might be underpowered. I’ll use 2 cables in the end.@HsingEdward-U04HQ7LL1380Install LED light on GPIO for testing and pull pin on FlyOS control panel
@Sean0:winter-hardware-wonderland: Day 3
Had a somewhat unsucessfull day. Something happened overnight and now the pico driving my display only talks to my computer when the display isn't powered. it was working fine last night, I did get a new desk tho #hardware-party
