Having source code and all design files as a starting point it becomes very easy to customise it for your own needs and your own DIY project, even VFD driver might be modified with little efforts to control VFD panel from another DVD player - they all designed in a unified way.
This is a list of features that we've got in the end (and what could be potentially enhanced if you like):
- Real time clock battery backed up dedicated chip;
- 1Wire temperature sensor;
- Controlled wirelessly by any RC;
- Activated by PIR motion sensor;
- Serial-to-USB convertor for reprogramming and logging purposes;
- Acrylic enclosure;
- Full source code is available;
Thank you and we hope you will find this project useful and worth making!
