Since I’m not using any high power LEDs or strings, a DynaOhm is all it needs, making the transistors that would normally be required unnecessary. If I want to use a high ppower LED, there is…continue reading » »
Introducing Proteus. This commission request was to base the design on a few photos of ancient African swords and to include the colors and theme of Barbados. Since this was made for a friend on a tight budget, there was a challenge in materials and technique. I worked up a few 3D concept designs, and…continue reading » »
R2ino is an Arduino based partner board for the Plecter Labs Nano Biscotte v3 first installed in my Pathfinder hilt. The setup consists of a Nano Biscotte V3, Arduino Pro Mini 3.3v, several WS2811/WS2812 LEDs and chips, a charge port with a leave-in kill key, 3.7v 18650, and aviation/CB style 8 pin connector. The harness…continue reading » »
