Re: Project log - Pinball machine

Holy crap, an update!

It took almost a year, but I've finally got those I2C LED driver boards built and tested (driven by an rpi). 16 individually-dimmable LED channels per board.

Re: Boxform

Re: Let's get some awesome new tools!

If someone finds/makes some plans for the box and whatnot for the vacuum former, I'll be happy to build it.

Long time since the last update. I blew up the arduino when I shorted coil power into the switch matrix while soldering something under the playfield (d'oh!), and I haven't gotten much done construction-wise since then.
