Things are getting really hectic around here at meoWS. I am currently wrapping up a project and am about to start up two new projects. I hope to get one of them finished this month. Be sure to check back later this week in the projects section to see what I’ve cooked up recently.
Damnit partybot, we’re supposed to be working!!
This weekend, I decided to take some time to play around with conductive paint. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while but it wasn’t until recently that I got my hands on some paint made by Bare Conductive. I took a small sheet of acrylic I had laying around and decided to make a touch pad out of it:
Happy Halloween to all the ghosts, ghouls, monsters et al. running around tonight in search of (or distributing) sugary snacks. I’ll be looking forward to all the awesome costumes floating around the internet in the next few days…not that I haven’t seen any sweet ones already.
Sadly, I haven’t made a costume for this year but I have rigged up a plastic jack-o-lantern that I bought last year. It’s amazing how much the price drops on these things when they’re “broken.” All I had to do was bust out the soldering iron and reattach the battery lead. Using an arduino, the Cap Sense Library, tin foil and some LEDs, I made a touch sensitive jack-o-lantern that I call the “Cyber Punkin.”
