@SameerYasin-U04FRLBSY567+Finally my school game me something! Good marks in English and Entrepreneurship really paying off!:beatsaber::thinking:
@Peiprjs7+Got bored, decided to work on my new pfp. I think the neck is a bit too long ngl
@SameerYasin-U04FRLBSY567+Got a small black shady-looking package:sussy_gotem: from HackClub yesterday! But when I opened it; It was the pins/badges made out of the custom pixel art I submitted to @Holly! I really enjoyed designing them! and am thinking of doing a workshop on how to do pixel art in my club "Phoenix Hacks" YaY
@Cheru1got a wii nunchuck hooked up to an arduino! thinking of using this for FRC control :>@SameerYasin-U04FRLBSY567+YOHOO!! Hackclub Twitter posted about me and my drone!! All thanks to the amazing @belle for reaching out for this! And to the fabulous @MelanieSmith for making me so motivated for WHW to do well!!
PS: Chaotically Awaiting the next hardware event! Till then I'll create Pin and sticker designs for @Holly ! :8bit-heart: Thank You All!
@Polar1Completely reworked my website to use Notion (through fruitionsite.com) , I think it looks clean and it's super easy for me to manage.
Feel free to take a look at polar.blue
@Peiprjs7+My ISP has tried to gaslight me into thinking that having a simple Apache server at home is too much for my “residential router” to handle. Obviously, bullshit. So I disconnected it and turned it off, proving them wrong. I also checked the router’s diagnostics and it seems like the issue lays with the optic fibre cables, since we are not receiving the correct intensity.
(screenshot showing pings to Cloudflare’s 184.108.40.206 and Google, IIRC). As you can see, with the server off, I still get about 50% dropped packets. IE: no internet half of the time.
@SameerYasin-U04FRLBSY567+Now that my #droneproject & #hardware-party:winter-hardware-wonderland: have ended, I was thinking about starting something new!! So here it is! I'm going to develop a game #gamedev :tw_video_game:, But before that, can yoh all please tell me what this is? It looks like a sprig:sprig-party: ? And i got it as a Hackathon prize!
Please tell me what it is? Thanks!
@SameerYasin-U04FRLBSY567+Day 10 of WHW #hardware-party, Today I calibrate my fsi6s transmitter; binding it with the receiver, I was so sleepy that i also messed up the expo settings, but later got it right! I'm so tired rn that the only thing i can think about is sleep! And because of that I'll see you all tomorrow! Bye, Goodnight!
@SameerYasin-U04FRLBSY567+Day 7 of WHW #hardware-party, Day was packed with EID preparation. So, the only thing I did was boot up my Raspberry Pi and tinker with it for a bit before running the object detection algorithm. Well, that was today! I'll see you all tomorrow! Bye, Goodnight.
@Briyan0Tysm guys 💖 (I think someone pressed the duplicate button 😅)
@cytronicoder7+Day 2/3 of #hack-club-at-fossasia-23!! I felt the need to post about this as a ship, as we committed a couple of shenanigans along the way~ :sphere:
1. Yes, we did a lil thing to #place - some of us here got bored and went to a Starbucks, where we sat and masterfully constructed the one and only John Cena. Then, we returned to the place and updated the board with a photo from #lion-city-hacks-bts!! DON'T WORRY WE ARE NOT HERE TO TROLL (although the john cena one was good, it was just a test - sorry @belle :p)
2. I worked with LionsForge to laser-cut a @dinobox acrylic piece! Going to buy an LED base to put this on :partyparrot:
3. Many stickers from everywhere - this is now the premier event where I got the most swag from
4. We set up a challenge for FOSSASIA participants to draw their versions of @orpheus!! The results were.... pretty diverse, and we will be sending them sometime tomorrow ~I think~
Here are some photos from today - a video update can be found in our planning channel linked above!
See ya :pirateparrot:
@Sam2Just got the plaque and stickers in my mail! :yay: (My sticker collection continues to grow)
It looks (and smells) AMAZING! It's customized as well :O
P.S. I think the short and lang bars next to the "Winter Hardware Wonderland" text is binary. It seems to be the first letter of my name :tw_thinking_face:
@Sarthak0Started tinkering with GPT-3 with buildspace. I'm making a little UIL study tool for my team so that we can make studying more efficient and fun. Currently thinking about making the model answer in pirate voices and including other random easter eggs to make studying a little more interesting! Learned about prompt engineering as well as explored Next.js's backend serverless functions a little more.
@sahitid0i think we're doing this thing:half-salute:
@maggie2update on :winter-hardware-wonderland: macropads! almost fully assembled one — just need to buy screws and standoffs to attach the bottom — and they work!!
the 3 rgb leds are individually addressable, and since it’s powered by a pico, the keys and leds are all customizable (here I have circuitpython loaded on the pico, running a rainbow animation)
i think these would be fun hackathon prizes so if you want some for your hackathon reply/dm me ig?
@ella0Last week I fabricated the design with the 3D printed carriage to compare it with the design that uses the sandwiches aluminum carriage plates. I think the one with the 3D printed carriage was significantly easier to assemble and adjust. It also seems more stable, perhaps because it’s a lot thicker than the aluminum plate.
The BOM for the latest version (with 3D printed carriage) is now on GitHub. You can find it here: github.com/hackclub/drawing-thing/blob/main/BOM.md
I still think this side-project is going to far, today i decided to launch ArcFox (even with the actual bugs, cause maybe i can get help) ArcFox is a pack of firefox improvements that brings the appearance and some of the features of arc browser to firefox. Developed by a non-mac user and maintained by firefox lovers, arcfox is one of the best ways to experience firefox. The project is still under developement and i don't develop it everyday, but it's already kinda working!
@SameerYasin-U04FRLBSY567+Day 4 of WHW #hardware-party, I have my physics exam tomorrow, so didn't do much. But I'm done with the calibration, Thinking about what to work on tomorrow!
@Omay1im watching helluva boss. i think this is the funniest face in the show.
I had some trouble breathing at school and got home earlier. Thanks asthma! I'm now fine, but I didn't go to any of my activities today, and I won't tomorrow as well, so I will work on a few things!
:netflix: Mr. Robot
Watched the final episode. This is a masterpiece, go watch it.
Duo wasn't mad for yesterday. I did my Swedish today, and he seemed ok. I think...
📨 Letter from HQ
I got a letter from @Holly today, for a riddle! Can't wait to solve it with my Hack Club today! I just noticed that it was written on 3rd of February and it came today... Thanks Hellenic Post!
Boy, I have a lot to do for tomorrow! Gotta study some C, work on that Python project I haven't touched, update my website, do my Swedish, study Ancient Greek (WHYYYYY) and other school stuff. That's a lot 💀
@AmirArbouch-U04FNLQ9H8V1WHW day +6: after hours struggling with wifi connection, I have succeeded to get on hack club slack and make a post on the scrapbook. Here is what I did during my week without internet:
• print time on serial monitor thanks to the RTC library that I've already install (i have also displayed them on my lcd screen but i forgot to take pictures)
• read some books about C programming language to code my arduino better (don't have C++ books but it was the best I got without internet 🥲)
this week I went finish my holidays to the mountains ... but I forgot to take my arduino 😭 no progress this week sorry if my project take a long time to get finished (I think i'll not be able to continue during school)
@AuniverseA-U041URY9TD10⛄️Winter Hardware Wonderland - Automatic Plant Watering System 🌱
we're not super close to finishing, but things are falling together nicely

@Briyan0#hardware-party whw update no. 9 I think! Went to the hospital cuz of neck sprain. Anyway I attached the joysticks and stuff and I learnt that the powerbank won't fit in the case so I'm placing it outside fr temporary
@sporeball1cirno day 13
incredibly, using the "mem" package didn't work!
we're distracted trying to think about how to implement memoization on our own.
@juliet0#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.
@MohanSeshasaiVasa-U04ARBSCXH90Mohan Day 5 update - github.com/hackclub/winter/blob/main/vmss2009.md
Yay! after a prolonged workout with multiple options, I am able to get the FlutterFlow code run in another laptop(eventually it could be handled as web service) and it shows the data from RPI which has the RFID connected. Hmm, did not think it would be such a tough fight with RPI to run Linux version of FlutterFlow.
@msw0Day 7 of 10 for my #hardware-party project! I’m making a split-flap display
I updated my message-passing code for github.com/maxwofford/split-flap today trying to pass down a number through a chain. ie. if I type “25|” into arduino serial, i want the first arduino to blink 2 times, and the second arduino to blink 5 times.
I’m not able to get it working & I have an issue where the message gets passed down the line as “9". I think i’m doing something wrong with my int parsing, but not sure. If anyone has done serialization like this before I’d love help! Here’s my code.
@Lucas1:winter-hardware-wonderland: Day 7 :winter-hardware-wonderland:
in the next few days I will be assembling 2 game console
all jumpers in the right place (hopefully!) and i think i'll have to buy more jumpers for console 2
@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C50Day 6 of WHW - #hardware-party - I finished designing a case for the vr body trackers. So I started soldering and out of 6 working solders there is one good one, 3 bad ones, and an ungodly amalgamation that might work. I also burned myself 3 times while trying. I think I'm done for the day.
@Briyan0Ok so welcome back to day 5 of #hardware-party I think? :kitty-wave::winter-hardware-wonderland: Winter hardware wonderland :winter-hardware-wonderland:
Just did some soldering today and that's about it.
(Exams on Monday so had to study)
@VincentvH-U04HW44NLJ30Today I learned about how to use Fusion 360 and I think the basics of 3D modeling are pretty easy.
Fixed my printer, the spool was tangled.
More 3D prints, this one is a 14 hour print. (If it fails I will cry)
Also soldered some wires for easy connection to the arduino shield. Starting to run low on those connector wires, I think I have enough tho!
@RelatedTitle-U04GUF2QEKS0I've been working on the backend so there's not really anything visual that I can share so I'll just repeat the image of the frontend that I shared yesterday. I have built the realtime API using websockets to send commands from the client to the server to the drone, it also relays information (height, temperature, etc) from the drone to the server to the client as well. For the backend, I still need to finish authentication and integrate a database (I will be using PostgreSQL most likely) to store information about flights. I will also integrate an API (something like S3, I'm thinking of using Cloudflare R2 since it's pretty accessible) to store recorded videos. This should ensure the server doesn't run out of storage and that the data is safely backed up.
@Daniel0Winter Wonderland - Back Again for Day 2/10! (#hardware-party)
Today has been a pretty busy day for me, so I didn't get quite as much done as I wanted to. Nevertheless, progress has been made and you're here to see it.
First things first, I went through three different motor mount bracket revisions trying to get the angles just right (a tilted motor would lead to belt wear nightmares down the road).
After getting the motor mount sides printed, I decided to knock out a couple easy tasks, so I mounted the battery to the bike, which was easy to do with the water bottle holes already found standard on the bike frame. I also printed the mount for the speed controller (out of PETG for heat resistance) and gave it a test fit on the bike. While the part looks super pretty and clamped on to the frame well, it didn't have the friction to resist my pushing it down the tube. To solve this problem, I'm thinking of lining the inside of the clamp with electrical tape for its thin but rubbery surface.
One more super exciting thing - I got some of my aluminum plates machined at robotics! All I need now is the motor mount plate, which is a little bit more complex with its partial depth cut wings.
Just like the last post, feel free to message me with any questions or input!
CAD for reference
@Bowiten0day 2 of whw
i think i figured out how to consistently desolder the leds, and now i desoldered nearly an entire row
still a bit tedious, but it's much better than yesterday
@Processing-U04FR56582F0As for the first day of the Winter hardware wonderland, we opened like twenty boxes and Got our Raspberry Pis working. After a bit of struggle, we also managed to get the screens working. They work okay but you have to press hard for the touch screen to register. I guess that's about what you could expect from a 13€ display from Aliexpress... I think we are going to have to design some kind of support for the screen so the pins don't break.
@Briyan0Ok! So hello :kitty-wave: and welcome to my first scrapbook update ever (I think)! So what's up today?
:winter-hardware-wonderland: Winter hardware wonderland :winter-hardware-wonderland:
For the next 10 days expect to see WHW content and updates! :kitty-awe:
So I sanded my brand new case (special thanks to Ella for the case) and polished it a bit and then stuck both bottom halves together. Also slapped on a new cute "we can build it" Orpheus :baby-orpheus: sticker I got from epoch :epoch:. So hopefully I'll start some electronic work tomorrow and start with the soldering when I receive my soldering iron kit :raspberry-pi-logo: on Thursday.
Summary of today :partyparrot: :-
Bottom case came out great after some sanding and polishing.--- End of Scrapbook update of today ---
See you tomorrow of the next update! Bye!
@Daniel0Winter Wonderland Day 1/10 (#hardware-party)
The day has come - I finally started working on my eBike project! (definitely didn’t start the cad early 🙈 )
After putting some “finishing” touches on the cad, I 3D printed a side of my motor mount bracket to make sure I got my angles right…
Low and behold I had to make adjustments so now v2 is on its way 😂 .
While those parts were printing, I got to thinking about what communication scheme I’m going to use for control: Currently leaning towards using built in ADC for throttle and a raspi pico interpreted signal from a Hall effect sensor for brakes.
Feel free to message me if you have any questions or some input!
@AliHussain-U04JJLFSSVD0Day 1 of #hardware-party
Today I worked on setting up my 3D printer in order to start printing the chassis parts for my project. Putting the printer together wasn't too bad, but getting the bed level took a couple hours of work and many youtube tutorials, but I think I finally got it in a good spot. I'm planning on doing a couple more test prints tomorrow to make sure everything is good, but from there I plan on CAD'ing out my design.
@provsalt0Just shipped my new personal website out in the wild! raygoo.tech
This is like my 3rd design and I'm really happy with how this turned out and yes, it is written in svelte after switching from solid-start to nextjs and now finally on sveltekit. safe to say, I really enjoy svelte.
I think my design skills are improving slowly. Please let me know if there's any improvements I can make on the design aspect.
Full ugly source code: github.com/provsalt/provsalt
@zrl1Finally reinstalled NixOS on my desktop and got it running with Sway. That was so much harder than expected. Thanks to everyone in #zrl-land who helped me think through window manager options!
