Step 3: Ready to program the brain

Once you have soldered the guts together the brain of the A-Team Egg is ready to get instructions.

If you dont already have the Picaxe IDE, download AXEpad for Windows, Mac or Linux from the Revolution Education Website . Install it following the instructions . You also need to download the A-Team Egg code here and unzip it.

Start AXEpad and open the code.

Connect the Picaxe 08 Proto Board to your computer using the Picaxe Download cable. Dont forget to power your Picaxe with 3 AA Batteries that provide 4,5 V what is quiet enough to run the chip.

Now you can push the upload button in the software. After a few seconds the chip is programmed. If you shake the board, it should play the title melody of The A Team.
I had to miss a couple episodes when I went running. And I missed one while I was taking a shower but that's Ok because it had Boy George in it. And instant Netflix doesn't have the last episode
I LOVE THE A-TEAM!!! I've watched almost every episode!
I'd pity the fool!
"I aint' gettin' on that plane!"
I cant tell which is more baddass, that Egg or Mr T himself?
Nice! This will let me use up some AAA battery holders (I accidentally ordered AAA's on fleabay. This might also allow for using a smaller egg shell..)
EGGcellent! :D You should make a Mr. T stencil so you can use spray paint and paint Mr. T on all the eggs! :D
Yes, I had the Idea of making a stencil, but I had not enough time for it
Excellent! :) "Yo Fool!!!" :P
