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

Yay!, you got an UNO

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

Just when you think you can give up for the day, and relax, in comes...

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.

Nice little project

"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...

Neat little parking sensor

It's good that they are letting you learn a bit about the kit

Bought some cheap 9v Square batteries and connectors that work with the little ArduinoUNO boards.

No idea how long those batteries might last, but it's much better than having each project be USB connected to the laptop, once finished.

I wouldn’t mind printing a little case or two, but by the time you add the Arduino, the breadboard, and then all the wires and battery, the whole case would probably take about 3 weeks to print!!!

Do you get a new arduino every month?
Posted : Monday, 26 March 2018, 09:10
Jayenkai
Yeah!
Come month 12, I’ll be able to build a superduinomegabot!!

You know, with just one resistor (possibly 2, can't remember) you can hook one up to your TV. That is if you're TV is old enough to accept an analog video signal.
Then you could make a TV version of spike dislike!

I might have to look in to that!!
D'you reckon it'll do a QuadDef version?!

I think 160x100 or similar. I remember some people managed to do much better, no doubt they left code all over the place for that.

-edit-
320x200, possibly in colour, depending on your arduino i guess.

Um... yeah.. maybe not to the telly, then!!

I have considered some kind of 64x64 grid of leds for Platdude Pixelarts.. not a clue where to start, there, though!!

64x64 is probably going to be very slow. my 32x16 led frame almost looks ok.

It wouldn't need to be fast, maybe a new image every 15 minutes or so.
There's thousands of 'em, though!! That ain't gonna fit in memory!

You can wire up an SD card, that isn't an issue.

16x16 grid.. Slicer says "Fuck off!!" (The progress bar under the second upper-left, save icon, button isn't budging from 1%)
