@kyle1Tested the WHW urban kayak in a lake. It floats fine, DIY paddle was a mistake
@karmanyaahm2Day 99? of Winter Hardware Wonderland - Project Oreo Custom Rubber Ducky
I left a parting gift for my CS teacher. Next year 1st pd CS will find this beauty.
@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!
@sahitid0finally got this #hardware-party I LOVE THE STICKERS
@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+Greetings,:beatsaber: fellow Hackers, Hack Clubbers & hardware wizards! It's Day 12 of WHW #hardware-party, and I come bearing exciting news from our winter wonderland drone project. After weeks of hard work, late nights, and endless cups of hot water (Did not have cocoa:sadge:), we've finally done it! Our drone is complete!!!:aussieparrot:
The drone has very cool attachments & features like a high-resolution camera and advanced sensors that can detect changes in temperature, humidity, and air pressure. It's highly adaptable and can fly in humid, fog, and terrain which is difficult to traverse! Along the road, we faced our fair share of difficulties, from debugging code to testing flight stability while being ill, but I overcame them all with the help of my trusty hot water and team spirit.
It was all worthwhile in the end. We have developed a drone that is not only useful but also a tonne of fun.
In the end, I would like to T:hackclub-slack:ANK @HackClubBank-U04SEGJ8WN5 for funding this project and @MelanieSmith for overseeing it, and @TanishqUpmanu-U04F0RWGARH for helping me so much! Now, let's raise a cup of hot water (cocoa for the rich people☕) to this fantastic journey of building a drone project and celebrating its end. This will be my last WHW post and #drone series. Thank you all for supporting! I'll see you all tomorrow! Bye, Goodnight!
PS : Gonna get into all the #44-74 stuff going around! Gotta solve those mysteries YK!
@SameerYasin-U04FRLBSY567+Day 11 of WHW #hardware-party, Today I configured the flight controller & calibrated the compass calibration Well, that was it for today! I'll see you all tomorrow! Bye, Goodnight!
PS: Tomorrow is the big day!:back-dance: when i finally reveal the complete project! So, stay tuned!!
@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 9 of WHW #hardware-party, Ahh! Such a tiresome day! Had a lot of guests come over and the fact that I'm in my village makes posting even harder! Today I had a meet with my partner and we setup a local network to upload sensors output to local server and examine it through esp8266 WiFi module. Well, that was it for today! I'll see you all tomorrow! Bye, Goodnight!
@SameerYasin-U04FRLBSY567+Day 8 of WHW #hardware-party, I had to head out early because we had to go to our village :villager: for EID💫 . So, I woke up really early and did some wiring and assembled the bldc motor & tested the net thrust component, I got some reading around 1.1kg in net force, and then headed out. Rest of day was packed with EID preparation and i am awaiting tomorrow :akkoshrug: eagerly. Well, that was it for today! I'll see you all tomorrow! Bye, Goodnight!
PS: After being yelled at by my father for driving:driftt: , (In his own words) "weirdly" :weirddude: i tried some cool art filters and edited some pictures.
@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.
@SameerYasin-U04FRLBSY567+I KNOW I AM LATE! But hear me out! Finally, the doctors let me go! After severe fever and dehydration, I finally present: Day 6 of WHW #hardware-party, I know I am late but my mum taught me not to leave things unfinished. So, today I looked up the satellite view of my location and marked up the mission point in mission planner! Well, that was it for today! I'll see you all tomorrow! Bye, Goodnight.
@Briyan0Tysm guys 💖 (I think someone pressed the duplicate button 😅)
@Lucas2Ok guys, I used an Arduino and some jumpers from :winter-hardware-wonderland:, bought some parts and finally managed to finish a complete a hardware project without exploding anything:)@Sam4Just 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:
@karmanyaahm2Ampli-Tie final day 5, March 25th - the day has arrived!
- Solder the microcontroller (I'm just powering it off the mCu USB port, past me calculated a peak of 100mA would be reasonable, future me found out the whole thing only consumes 26mA).
- Copy a whole bunch of code off Adafruit, but the mic doesn't work, turns out, for some reason, my painted mic is broken and always outputs 3.6v. Hurriedly swapped to another mic, unpainted, so it would have to hide under the collar (T-2hrs).
- Still cannot get the mic to work (T-90m). Might as well get static effects working. Got timing on rainbow cycling adjustable from the app, and made sure static color worked.
- (T-60m) it works! Now I actually gotta tie the tie and dress up.
@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?
@LouisGan-U04G7K77ZNV0Winter Hardware Wonderland #hardware-party
There were complications in getting the Hack Club Bank to work and parts were slow to ship from overseas - but finally I got all the parts to work and here is the first prototype of the Triton Amphibious Rover! github.com/hackclub/winter/blob/main/thelouisgan.md
The RC controlled rover features a LEGO Technic vehicle that I coupled with a motor, and for the water side of things I rigged an underwater motor and 3D printed rudder to a 25KG servo motor. All this is remotely controlled with an RC so that you can take it to explore different terrain and locations! It is also powered by a rechargeable LiPo battery and will be able to operate up to 15 minutes on a full charge in optimal conditions. Will update more photos and videos of it in action soon!
Please do give feedback/suggestions as this is my first big scale project and thanks to @MelanieSmith and @belle for the support.
@ScottChiang-U0325L71XQR0Still not done with my WHW robot (technically). I have finished building my robot but it is not exactly the best design, so I have been thinking about upgrading from micro servos to servos. (It will result in the robot being bigger but also able to handle more of a load)
@abbanso100Finally, finally, my part has arrived right now!
@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!
@SameerYasin-U04FRLBSY567+Day 3 of WHW #hardware-party, Today I soldered the Electronic speed controller (ESC) to the motors, Wasn't able to do anything more tho. It's been quite hard studying magnetism in physics! and I also have my board exam this Monday. See you guys tomorrow!
@malted0I forgot to show the #hardware-party people, but here’s my electronics cupboard
The first circuit is a 16 bit flash ADC (the ICs are 741 operational amplifiers being used as comparators); it’s part of my bigger project
The second circuit is my friend’s pulse oximeter
(I’m wheezing because the CO2 levels were ridiculous (we had been in there with the door closed all day) @SameerYasin-U04FRLBSY567+Day 2 of WHW #hardware-party So, today I am coding the GPS Module System, I added and altered the code to enable more precise locations for better navigation while flying the drone. Tomorrow I will start working on the hardware! Thanks.
@Samarth_Verulkar0Day 9 of WHW #hardware-party I just connected all the channel’s form transmitter to receiver and will code the return to land function tomorrow
@SameerYasin-U04FRLBSY567+Day 1 of WHW #hardware-party I was so busy with exams that I forgot to post! Sorry guys. So, Here I am Coding the altitude calculation system for my team's drone, A tip for others who are facing problems with APM, for example: so I was not getting the correct reading of altitude in APM so I used (True Altitude = Indicated Altitude + (ISA Deviation × 4/1000 × Indicated Altitude) to get the correct reading.
@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)
@Arpan1Just wrote an article on Hashnode about my WHW debugging journey.

@AashutoshRavi-U04HWS075K50Winter Hardware WonderLand Day Final: Now the FM radio transmitter is ready and i am able to Broadcast the audio with my raspberry pi radio.
@maggie2: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
@ManikShrivastav-U04GY2NRT5X0Day last of WHW🇳🇵
Finally my project The Gesture Control Robot 🤖 is completed and you can have a look on it. It was a great time working with this project. Hope to participate in future events as well.
By @ManikShrivastav-U04GY2NRT5X .@Marios7+Today is the 1st day of what I call, the DM ( Daily Marios ) Didn't do much because I was out of town

I want to update my winter hardware wonderland repo and create the pcb. Also experiment more with the C64.
~~~ It is :minecraft: time ~~~
Or is it? I didn't have much time today so I didn't play much :(.
@Sebastian-U04JKCPP50E0WHW Day 14 ❄️ :
I asked my Digital Electronics teacher about how to create the multiple connections in my wiring diagram, shown below, and he told me that I could just use a tiny breadboard to carry the current of a wire to multiple connections; I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t think of that before but I’m excited to wire that up tomorrow!!!
@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C50Didn't do much today but I did plan to calibrate my 3d printer further so that the case fits better than before. The picture is just everything I've printed for the project including the one failed case.
@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
@Marios7+Today is the 3rd and final day of what I call Winter Hardware Wonderland Extended Edition :winter-hardware-wonderland::ultrafastparrot:.

I and @Odysseus expanded our kelp empire, ans created our first stores! Furthermore construction on GNHATS, Galaxy Nether Highway and Transport System, has begun! Section I, II are already completed.
@Sam4#hardware-party day 13/… My syncing math works! They now end at the same time!@Sebastian-U04JKCPP50E0WHW Day 13 🤠 : Worked on tedious soldering today… I reached out to my dad to see if he could help me out, and he taught me how to “join” together wires using a lighter and tape which worked (I think) 😅! I technically don’t have much left with the wiring, but I’m going to ask my teacher about how to join wires together, because my dad’s method seemed sketchy…
Here’s pictures of the soldering and the wire joint created today:
@Mayank0#hardware-party :winter-hardware-wonderland: Day - (10 + 2)
Made the circuit to control the led strip and connect the previous circuit to the AC appliance.
@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C50One of the cases came off the 3d printer but it has a lot of issues. It at least gives me an idea of what it might look like though.
@maggie2:winter-hardware-wonderland: day 13! finished designing the macropad; also wired it up on a breadboard to make sure it works
