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.

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

Future:
* 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?
