Final Project Ideas

For my final project, I teamed up with Mary Clark to work on a Furby. She had seen the work of Kelly Heaton who has done a lot of projects with Furbys that inspired us. Some ideas for the project include making the Furby themed – maybe a zombie Furby and we can sew a brain … Continue reading Final Project Ideas

Troubleshooting the D20

So, I can get the d20 to power up.  It boots the Trinket Pro and goes through the program and announces “Greetings, Adventurer!”.  That tells me the power, code, sound files, sound board, amplifier card, speaker, and the Trinket Pro are working just fine.  But, when rolled,nothing is announced.  That’s where the accelerometer is supposed […]

Soldering The D20

    Before soldering, the instructions recommended reaming out the mounting holes on the circuit boards because they are going to be screwed into the die halves with pan-head machine screws, which is a little unorthodox for this type of project. I had never used a tap and die tool before so it was neat […]

“Tell Us What You’re Working On…”

A.K.A. How I Landed A Critical Hit With My d20 In a week or so, I’ll have my second Bachelor’s degree.  It’s in Computer Science.  Last semester I finished a minor in Geospatial Analysis and earned my certificate after defending my thesis.  My first Bachelor’s degree was in biology and I’ve enjoyed an interesting career […]

That Scintillating Post on Glue

Yes, it’s that scintillating post on glue that you’ve all been waiting for.  I know, I know it’s exciting stuff.  Now calm down and be sure you have a bottle of acetone on hand in case of accidents.  It’s really hard to drive to the drug store to get some if you have already glued […]
