Re: integrating arduino knobs&buttons into linux

I wanted to go the gpio route for three reasons: Because I want to apply the knowledge to MIDI over gpio, helping with another project and possibly others' too. Also because I'm using a model a and am having USB problems. Also just for...

Re: Laptop lcd

Crack open your laptop top case and find out the model of your lcd. not the model of laptop, but the actual name of the specific part. then search on ebay for '<model name> lcd controller board hdmi'. If something comes up, then you have a chance. Order the controller board, as well as possibly some...

Re: Pi Question - Is it capable of this?

I'm considering making a 'cd player' for my toddler. the 'cd' will be a disc, with a nice printed picture, and an nfc/rfid identifier tag. the 'player' would read the info from the tag, and play a preloaded playlist of relevant mp3s. That way, the discs will be 'unscratchable'.

Re: Hints Please: 40+ flashing LED project

40 rgb leds via shift registers = at least 120 wires, plus the ground wires. it'll need 5 chips wiring up, probably some prototyping pcb + other stuff. also, the cheap, normal shift registers won't supply full power to the leds and still stay in spec. a tree would be doable becaust you could hide th...

integrating arduino knobs&buttons into linux

I'm building an original model a into a keyboard, to make an 80s, 8-bit style PC. I'd like to add some analogue knobs, buttons and rotary encoders, and still have plenty of gpio free for an spi Tft, blinkenlights, and other stuff. I'm therefore going to wire all the inputs to an arduino pro mini, wh...
