two more working designs

more a re-design than a scratch design, but still had to push the same amount of pixels and solder.  you’ll see these on the market soon, till then here’s the “factory proofs” with some double-check their Q with my A.

hella bright blinky disks.

and sometimes ya just gotta check how good they printed by removing the top screen print to expose the copper traces.  modern SMD parts are sooooo damn tiny in sub-milimeter kinda tiny.

Perigee Moon Scores

SuperMoon.  harumph.  bullies shame the smart, and american schools teach to the lowest common denominator.  well, it ain’t common, it’s called “Perigee”, when the Moon is closest to Earth, as opposed to “Apogee” when it’s the furthest.  One of these days we’ll rid the earth of the last of the science shamers…

whatever, tide was SUPER LOW, and that is SCIENCE WIN!!!!

quick little video of the DC3 new touch sensors in action.  just a simple sensor-faceedges mapping for now to get the sensitivity dialed in.  works about 1″ out from the face of the glass, and seems to be stable with power fluctuations thanks to extra regulator.
