Gegrüßet seist du mein Freund, ich lade dich ein – für einen Moment – lasse dich verzaubern von der Magie der Phantasy – aus ferner Zeit und Welt – bin ich hier her gereist – und möchte dir gern Berichten – was ich erlebt auf meinen Reisen…
for my trip to MPS Dortmund i got my magic_crystal to work and be mounted in my staff 🙂 ..last minute thing as usual 😉 it worked nicely – i did not had to change the batteries – and this for a 4 days festival!
now after some time doing other things – today i got to work again on the crystal. First thing on the list is to add the ambient-light sensor. so the crystal brightness is automatically adjusted for the ambient-light level around it – this makes it more visible during day and dims it down so its not blinding when the sun goes down..
during the ‘off day’ in Dortmund i got to prepare the software a little bit. But before i got to check and test this i solder a short connection cable and modified my ‘controller-housing’ (stiff black paper) with a acrylic glass window on the top (see top picture)
i tested first with the example sketch – just to verify my connections.. this worked – so the next step is to write the actual software but first i need to get some sleep 😉
