Nothing too exciting here, but I wanted to share with you the end result of the Arduino class I completed over at Instructables.
I’ve mentioned Instructables before, and enrolled in a few of their classes when they became free, most of which are still in progress - but not the Arduino one, which I officially completed by building the infinity mirror.
It’s very rough around the edges, being made mostly out of foam board (which seems to be the perfect material for a project like this due to its low cost and simplicity to work with), combined with a small mirror, a small piece of two-way glass, and some WS2818 LEDs powered by an Arduino Gemma.
Although I’ve not officially documented the build process, I do have some photos sent to friends showing the various stages, which I’ll look into putting into a gallery to show anyone that’s interested. Watch this space.
Anyway, as part of my new year’s resolution to complete more things (before starting new ones), my next target is the Electronics class, which has multiple smaller projects for each of its chapters (most of which I’ve slightly cheated on by submitting projects I did as part of the zombie maker book). The current lesson is about resistors, and has me building an audio mixer - no ability to weasel out of that one, so right now I’m just waiting for the components to be delivered.
(what use is a hobby that doesn’t cost lots of money, eh? )
UPDATE: here’s the build gallery:
