I just got my shipment of stuff from BGMicro, including a ton of pinheaders!
1x Velleman 4x4 keypad
1x GI AY-3-8910 Sound Chip (and matching IC socket)
2x LEDs with wire and
1x 2.5" stero cable end (Digital Rebel XT Trigger?)
1x Graphical KS0108 Display
and Lots of 1x40 and 2x17 Pinheaders :)
This is my new Freeduino, which I purchased as a kit from the fine folks at the AlphaOne Hackerspace table at QuahogCon 2010.
What I Did:
I took a Cellboost IPR3 that was otherwise destined for a dull life of providing power to an original iPod Shuffle, and converted the cable normally used for charging it into a USB-A-to-2-pin cable using the cable from an old computer case's hard drive activity light. (Using the cable is a bonus for me, since this cable has been kicking around the junkbox for ages.)
Here's what I gained (physically) from QuahogCon 2010 (in no particular order):
My latest Sparkfun.com order.
For PIC programming:
BOB-00193 (1): Adapter board for Microchip ICD and ICD2
For (hopefully) adding some IR functionality to my QuahogCon badge:
COM-09349 (4): Infrared LED - 950nm
DEV-00348 (2): Olimex Carrier Board for OKI ML67Q5003
This controller will be designed for installation into an Eee 700-series netbook to serve the following purposes:
I got this LCD screen free with one of my computer-related eBay purchases.
The label on the bubblewrap says:
I found this parking meter at Princess Auto yesterday. Made by POM Inc., this meter is called the PPM.
I got it to work by adding a rubber band with just enough tension to depress the turn-detect lever when the lever is turned. The meter has knobs where a tensioned spring was attached. I'll have to find a decent spring somewhere.
