Hi, thanks for sharing this wonderful project idea. It will be helpful for students to develop their project and practical skills.

As I posted on the interface board and calbes, DMX explicitly disallows 3-pin XLR - see section 7.1.2. It must be 5-pin XLR to be DMX. The…

I have used the Leonardo/32u4 for years. Having said that, I would still point newbies to the Uno/328p to start and then push them to…

With the walls of full stacks and pyrotechnics, I'm guessing it should do a great job detecting Angus too. Thanks for this post title,…

Hmm... stating the obvious: That new detector module really puts the "spark" into "SparkFun"!!!

Oh, also check out the LiPo USB car starters. They will put out some current!

I bought a Raspberry Pi UPS board and found that had a pretty good little charger; it'll put out some current too. I won't paste the link…

Thank you, very helpful and concise article. From a project cost perspective, the LiPo usb battery pack can charge a battery and provide 5V…

Exactly! Since your code is compiled on the web and flashed to the Micro:Bit over UF2, platform independence is a huge draw with this. There…
