So I needed a break from life…time to make something! This week - a 3D printed Useless Box. Found a model on Thingiverse, slapped in an Uno and a servo, and now I have something to write some code for. I’m definitely going to add some LEDs, but have to decide whether to add a piezo for beeps, or one of my sound modules so it can make rude and funny noises, as well.
Should’a known better than to drive the servo “just for a minute” directly from the Uno. Kind of disappointed that there was no actual smoke in the magic smoke this time.
Now which drawer did I put my next victim, er, Arduino in? Let me see…
I tried and failed gloriously at making a harmonograph last weekend. I have a good idea for what to do for it next but it got us talking about having a day when we just bring in our failures to show off, so everybody sees that it happens… add one sad motor to the list huh?
I’d be up for making this a thing.
