It’s alive

Solar Stage power indicators running off battery.

Albeit, without any sun out to try charging, but it’s (only the LEDs — note CHGD indicator fail) running merrily off the battery.

Let’s hope for a break of sun tomorrow.

First solo project

Rewind to September and I was finishing my first solo project with the Teensy. After completing the tutorials, this was my first project in Arduino C++. It’s made up of two rows of 3 white LEDs that cycle on and off to create a marquee effect. A push button swaps the direction and a potentiometer adjusts the speed of the loop.

1.8″ 128*160 TFT via SPI to Teensy 3.0

Using Peter Loveday’s adapted Adafruit GFX library  from the PJRC forums, I was able to test my 1.8″ 128 by 160 pixels at millions of colours for $6 shipped from China. It performed well. I was able to display some text and run through the benchmark program. The TFT is to be used in creating a mini projector.
