My 3d printed TOS type 2 phaser went down well at Destination Star Trek 50th convention this weekend. plans up to git and thingimabobverse as soon as I'm back. Oh, and I designed it from scratch in Solidworks. Was a common question.

Pebble OS 4.0 is pretty nice. Really polished and I love the new glances. Good work.Only time will tell if it is a battery chomper

I've had enough of plasma crashes and irritations. I'm going to fix what I can.
KF5 Source downloaded and compiled (which was ridiculously easy, props to the devs)
Goal this year: if I find a bug in an app, fix if possible.

Finally getting somewhere with my GUI library for these cheapola Adafruit TFT touchscreens...

god damn it... the lollopop 5.1 update has my pebble constantly disconnecting requiring a cycle of bluetooth. Every frigging hour. I'm going insane here and can't fix it!

And a dirty hack to get those NRF24L01 to plug directly into breadboard...
I pulled the tracks out, cut them down the middle, filed them down and put them back into the breadboard. Filled with a bit of glue and bingo, works great.
Amaze at the hackyness. I pity your eyes.

It's alive! A diy wireless keyboard and mouse switch with up to 254 slaves.
The stuff:
USB Host shield driving a teensy LC and an NRF24L01 wireless module.
Teensy LC in slave mode receiving the mouse moves/keypresses and forwarding them onto the machine.

Super early version, code released soon (it looks like shit right now)
Features Now:
* Emulates a teensy keyboard and mouse on the slaves.
* Master and slaves are wireless
* master can choose which slave to send mouse and keyboard commands to via a jumper (for now)
* setup and data packets are sent raw fromt he usb host over the wire to the usb slave
* hacky

* forward descriptors as well as data transmissions to slave.
* above allows full passthrough emulation of the keyboard (VID and PID)
* get this touchscreen I have in a box somewhere hooked up to the master.
* not hacky

seems like FPGA development is still non-trivial to pick up. It should be easier than it actually is to VHDL a cpu and usb ip core. The toolchains alone are a nightmare. Any help out there for a FPGA noob?
