CreationCrate


So, with LootCrate a thing of the past, I decided to trawl the web for something to replace it.
I came upon CreationCrate
It's a wee bit pricier.. $29.99 + $4.99 shipping. Eeek!

I'm fairly sure it's a standardised subscription (eg everyone gets the boxes in the same order, starting from Box 1.. not a completely random box each month)
Each month is a little electronics kit, with a little "UNO R3" Arduino compatible board and all the bits of wires/breadboard/etc that you need to complete the project.
All signs are that first month will be a little LED lamp.

Build the thing, code the board, pop it together and be happy!
There's, what I'm assuming, a complete list of projects here. So, expect that to be the order I build things in!

.. Bit childish, but fuck it, I need something productive to do once I've finished building the new AGAWFramework!
Looking forward to this!

Alongside my "Build a Radio" Advent Calendar, looks like 2018's going to be a techy building year for Jay!

Basic or simple, maybe, but certainly not childish. Sounds like fun

Gawd, that took long enough!!

Crate One : Mood Lamp

> Reveal 🔎

Next code!!!!
This is the original code.


I've since tweaked that to fade a little more gently, since the number of int's that they used caused it to stutter and glitch, rather than gently fade.

I also reduced the green, as the green LED seemed a little overpowering.



Magic!!!

The end result

Not used my UNO in a while, been too occupied with getting this tile map editor thing up and running properly.

bung a resister inline with it, it should be using some sort of pulse modulation as they work exactly the same as a speaker. Also coding it quieter should work fine assuming you're sending a value between 0 and 255 on a timer to make the sound.

"bung a resister inline" sounds like the sort of experimenting that will no doubt explode in my face

No idea what size, or anything! ... but it did come with a spare one.
Hmmm...
