@msw6I made some USB hubs! I’ve been working on the design since @hugo.y.hu935 gave an #onboard workshop at Outernet. I made the schematic and PCB layout about a week ago, and the actual fabricated boards arrived yesterday– so quick!
Next step is to test them out, but they look like they’re all connected correctly. After I confirm they work I’ll put a making-of post in #onboard for other people who want to do stuff with USBs
@Sean7+I arrived in croatia yesterday for a holiday. Day 1s photos
@sampoder5We’re seven weeks out from Outernet! It’s time to make the event a reality. I arrived in Vermont tonight and thought it’d be nice to start a video diary of the event’s behind-the-scenes, here’s “Episode Zero”.@toonnongaeoy1I got a package from the HQ. at first, I thought it wasn’t go to the my home but it arrived safely.
@Ruien1My mailman apparently has a questionable definition of the word mailbox
@Lucas1WOW thank you so much! made my day happier:)
@Ruien1You’ve heard of Dino in a box, now get ready for dragon in a bag!
@abbanso100Finally, finally, my part has arrived right now!
@maggie0:winter-hardware-wonderland: day 14: pcbs arrived!!! they look great but I haven't tested them yet...really hope they actually work, but if not, at least they look good :p
@VinciC-U04HJHZ3Y0M0Unfinished + SUPER Late WHW Day 10 ❄️
Made great progress today!
• Printed a new case as the old one was in poor quality
• The display has FINALLY arrived
• Finished the codes and stuff
Will continue to provide updates on the project until I can power on the display
@Sam7+#hardware-party Day 10/... Wow time flies, the 10 days are already up.
AliExpress shipping :tw_face_palm:, one final thing still hasn't arrived (eta was the 17th).
I've been too busy with #frc as well as preparing for a music competition recently so I couldn't work on it as much as I'd liked. Still got a ton done though.
Today I worked on some software stuff, soldered some wires and getting electronics ready.
I'm racing to get it complete before the 🚢 Ship Showcase!
@VinciC-U04HJHZ3Y0M0Day 6-7 of WHW ❄️
Project is currently on hiatus as one of the components (the LCD display) hasen't arrived yet, but in the meantime, here's what i've done:
• Successfully fetched data from Network Rail's data centre 💬
• Found my old raspberry pi 4 which has dust all over it :raspberry-pi-logo:
• Configured the cloud that feeds the data from my raspberry pi to the display
• Started designing the case of the display - should be done tomorrow
@VincentvH-U04HW44NLJ30I spent the two first days of the winter hardware wonderland assembling my 3D printer. All of my parts haven’t arrived yet so Today I did some test printing and adjusted the slicer settings.
@Chris0I guess i will call day one of my #hardware-party, my hardware finally arrived. I have almost everything i need.
But the GPS module is stuck with the delivery people. So now I have to wait a couple of days as it arrive.
I am going start with what i have so far and see how far I van go, as it should be quick once i receive the rest g the hardware
@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C50Day 2 of #hardware-party - I bought the wrong thing to get my 3d printer working but hopefully it should be fixed tomorrow. Also somehow 3 of my packages from China arrived 18 days early and got to the WHW on time. I'll have more progress done in the next 8 days.
@AngelaM-U04JQQEC3MF0:winter-hardware-wonderland:Day 1 of #WinterHardwareWonderland:winter-hardware-wonderland:
First of all, I love seeing the progress from different projects so early on! Nice job everyone!
As for my project, I am creating an Interactive Digital Art Installation and MIDI Controller. For more info here’s the PR: github.com/hackclub/winter/blob/main/Amagtoto.md
So… it was a busy day today so I did not get much done. However, since all the materials arrived considerably early we (my sisters and I) set up the 3D printer and did a couple wacky test prints. I have the cad for the MIDI controller case from the step-by-step tutorial I am following and am planning to print that asap. As for the digital art, I have familiarized myself with TouchDesigner over the past few weeks and so today I learned how to incorporate the webcam into the displays. I plan to set up the projector screen tomorrow.
9 days more to go (hoping to make much more progress soon) :acongablob:
@ZeroQL7+final package for #hardware-party arrived :D
( not really theres one more item left even though i explicity told them to ship tyem all together :tw_face_with_rolling_eyes: )
@Sean7+The pcb's for controling the relay hardware arrived today
@toby1hey everyone! here's my update for day 5 of #10-days-in-public! i've just arrived back from wales, and very quickly added the ability to switch between an editing and a preview state. tomorrow, i'll work on making it look a bit fancier! :D@AyushPaul-U02GHNT70TB01/#10-days-in-public: My rocketbook arrived! I was heavily anticipating it and hope to make it a focus of this 10 day series! Today, I added a NFC chip so I can automatically open the app on my phone!
(ignore the bad quality of the video i could barely erase with one hand 😭)
the past few days have been a foggy haze of trying to get @Omay's hit sprig single, Sokoban+, running on the device
and like it was kind of basically working the entire time (good)
except kind of it would crash at the start (bad)
but i can make it not do that by not doing a different other thing (the bootup screen)
but WHYH!?!? why bootup screen make game crash later?
and how to have both?
HOW TO HAVE BOTH?
HOWWWWWW@msw6I’m learning how to use a CNC machine by building one!
For day 1 of #10-days-in-public, my goal is to finish acquiring the pieces. The metal and electronics all arrived, and the last 3d printed pieces are printing right now. I’ve never done something like this before & want to have everything laid out to start assembling tomorrow. Also watched some videos on how others assembled their CNCs www.youtube.com/watch?v=6D5m80r2leY
