As part of our first public meeting this Monday, we handed out a bunch of :CueCats to everyone who attended, along with a challenge: tinker with them, see if you can get them to do something fun, and share it with everybody at the next meeting.
I’m planning on using mine to build a handheld barcode scanner based on an Arduino and the touch screen from a Nintendo DS that stopped working a while back. It may be a bit ambitious, so I’ll probably need help along the way. I thought it might be helpful for others to see what I’m doing in case they get stuck in their own projects. The Arduino is in the mail, but while I wait on that, here’s the progress so far.
