  • Knife Sharpening Angle Coach With Bluetooth & Arduino

    I love the idea. If I build one I will modify the interface: Either high/low buzzes, vibration, a series of LEDs (red-green-red like a guitar tuner) or an analog instrument to indicate the angle directly. Or with a NFC reader to choose the right setting depending on the knife. Thank you so much!

    Scissor Drive Servo Hat

    This reminds me of the mechanism within the hat of one of Sir Terry Pratchetts witches. It folds down in stealth mode and extends into the traditional pointy form with a lot of weird noises. Boi-oi-oi-oi-oing included. Thanks for the great 'ible.

  • Arduino Leonardo/Micro as Game Controller/Joystick

    Hi Matthew,thanks for this library!I just found out that MULTI_AXIS does not work on the Micro, GAMEPAD does. In my case the Micro was recognized as a com port without the slightest chance to enter the game controller properties... Took me only 5 hours to find out :)(tested on Win 7/64(10.6.13) and MacOS Sierra (10.6.8))It is tempting just to read several analog inputs one after another, but that is a trap: The analog inputs affect each other if you do not place "delay" or "(void)analogRead" between them. First part of my project was reanimating some gameport rudder pedals for DCS.In the next part I will use an old MS Strategic Commander for absolute view control with programmable presets...I used to work with Digisparks but they are limited to two axes if you connec...

Maybe I will multiplex around that problem, but I learned a lot tonight and I really like the power of 32 buttons and 8 axes. Thank you very much!Regards,Andy
