  • If you are referring to the link in the newsletter we caught an error a little too late and had to remove it. The video is up to date on this page in the image carousel or you go directly to the video here.

  • Well you are in luck! Have a look at our Python page and maybe that will get you going. Also, if you feel we are missing anything to get you started let us know and we may be able to cover it.

  • I appreciate the complement! Unfortunately, I’m not sure if/when I’m going to get to that part of the project. Hopefully I can point you in the right direction for instructions though. I was going to use the MP3 Player Shield with Stackable headers and a Hamburger Mini Speaker to output the sound. You can find a hookup guide for the MP3 Player Shield here. I hope that helps get you moving. If you feel like you are getting close you can hit up our support team and they might be able to help you out with troubleshooting some issues.

  • The symbols “E” and “V” are interchangeable for the most part, although some texts reserve “E” to represent voltage across a source (such as a battery or generator) and “V” to represent voltage across anything else. “E,” stands for “Electromotive force.“ Source

  • Currently we have no plans of making a landing page to house all of these, but it’s possible we could do that in the future once more have been made. We also have these 3 available at each related tutorial. However, those require an email to receive them. Consider these a special bonus for our regular blog readers like yourself :)

  • micro:bits are tough to keep a steady supply in-stock to meet the demand for them at the moment. We do however have the micro:bit Go Bundle in stock for just a few bucks more. It includes the micro:bit as well as a battery pack, batteries, and a USB cable.

  • This is true, we try and be mindful of data usage and page load time for mobile version. You can also find each sale on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).

  • I was able to hit the play button under the large image on the link to get it to play.

  • I appreciate the kind words! As for powering up the project I’ll be using just a wall adapter for when it’s actually being used at home. The battery pack you see in the video was used so we could easily move it around for filming. I really don’t know how long they would last. The RTC uses a small coin cell on the back that says it last a minimum of 9 years and only needs set once. I do however like reaching out via the ESP32 to get the time. Just getting started with electronics you certainly find out quickly that the amount of features you could add never seems to end!

    As for the #include statements it was an issue with me mixing some html with markdown. It should be fixed now.

  • Good advice as always and I appreciate the kind words!

    I’ve never worked with a Teensy as I’m still very new to all of this. To be completely honest, this was pretty much the first time I’ve done a project that wasn’t part of our SIK guide. Still learning but having a lot of fun as well.
