We had a great little build night at CrashSpace.
We introduced one person to the joys of soldering. A few other people got their kits together and even giggled as they started playing with them.
The Digital Dominoes were designed to be hacked and Matt really took advantage of that. He increased the power, by doubling up CR2016 batteries in the battery holder. He swapped in a couple big LEDs of different colors. He added a potentiometer to adjust the timing of the blinks. The piece de resistance was using the digital dominoes as a timing circuit to pulse a relay driving a heat gun!
Check out the blog post and videos in the CrashSpace blog.
I’ll get some more information posted on how you can hack the dominoes soon.
