Around one year ago I ordered some of those supposedly wonderful TI eZ430 “Hackable” Watches but only received them last October since I had to wait for the 433Mhz version. Three months later I finally decided to have a go at trying it out and wrote a Python library for in the process.
The ‘quick and nasty’ software files are still the same as in the previous post. Pure software test only, couldn’t resist the temptation to try it via WiFi on a stock Chumby instead of USB tethering. As such the hardware frame is a bit too flimsy and the batteries aren’t enough to power the Chumby without brown-out resets. These will be improved upon soon 🙂
This is the second ‘thing’ I am making from the Ponoko order I received earlier. I’m calling this post a preview only simply because I am nowhere near finished! A fusion of laser cutting fun, my most hated subject of math, and cool glowing monofilament is the Hyperboloid Stool [A very expensive replacement for a $5 IKEA stool].
