Danny MacAskill is what happens if you give your kid a bike and don't teach him how to work it properly.

Damaged lipo.  I think it'd be OK.

Yeah, it'll be fine. I've heard sleeping with it under your pillow helps fix damaged LiPo's.  Relevant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tpb-n22Y-sY
(more seriously, no cell damage and no short possibility? LGTM)

I had a dance recital and ended up driving all most of the day yesterday, but I managed to squeeze in some weekend projects.

I've been playing with WS2812 addressable LEDs for a few days now. They're kind of neat. You can read a lot about these in Adafruit's Neopixel Überguide, but there are a wide variety of these things available and lots of interesting applications. I ordered a handful from Adafruit last time I ...

That's quite awesome.

I tried to do a time lapse of an amazing sunset in El Nido, but my GoPro crashed. That was disappointing.

I started learning the Saleae Logic analyzer API Monday.  I wrote a PWM[0] and CPPM[1] analyzer and rigged them up to a flight controller to watch how long it takes for various inputs to turn into outputs.

For a C++ API, it's actually been pretty fun.

I don't know what most people do with their retirement, but my parents are fighting an oil pipeline.

Yesterday they sued the State of Iowa to stop the illegal seizure of land for the Bakken Oil Pipeline.
The plaintiffs' lawyers contend the Iowa Utilities Board does not have the authority to grant eminent domain rights to an interstate crude oil pipeline company.

Worked on some LED control junk again.  Version 1 on the breadboard and then miniaturized into a wire.

This isn't my design, but it was a decent amount of fun anyway.  It'll operate up to 50 WS2812 addressable LEDs using a fairly simple serial protocol as input.  I drove a test LED (just one, because I was kind of dumb) from my bus pirate.

The original code, idea, etc... is here:
https://github.com/TauLabs/TauLabs/wiki/PicoC-Project:-RGB-LEDs

I changed the protocol a bit because I wanted to be able to directly address LEDs at will instead having to communicate the entire state of the world on every write.  (one line change)

I spent a forever soldering and wiring up an ICSP harness for a dev Opensky RX so I could work on the failsafe code.  I figured it was worth writing a bit about that and putting up some pictures and stuff.

I've been doing a lot hardware stuff recently. I didn't know much about hardware when I started and I like learning, so this is a lot of fun for me. Let me introduce you to a project I've been doing some work on lately called Opensky. Opensky is an open source hardware and software RC receiver ...

Spent some time trying to make small lights for something. Both of these styles worked OK, but the smallest resistor I had was a 220, so this LED wasn't quite bright enough at my target voltage.

+Jan Mercl ha, yeah.  I did briefly consider the security implications of having a picture of my fingerprint on the internet.  I try to avoid fingerprint scanners, though.  I don't like not being able to change my auth info.
