I grabbed two of those 36 key keypad boards from Paul at the last dork bot, he grabbed them out of those POS boxes [with the big LCDs that he has posted info about]. I wanted to get them working with the Benito and also wanted work with i2c a little [as I have a bunch of these 8bit i2c i/o expanders]. The keypad has 20 i/o pins so the Benito cannot use it directly anyways.. though 12 bits of shift registering would probably be better... but either way, I wanted to use what I had + i2c.
Trying get 8 dorkbord+bonito's sets for gifting to the team members in China I'm working with on android.
Hoping to get Intel to pay for them....
For years now, I've been buying "bug zappers" - you know, they have a blacklight and a charged grid that attracts and electrocutes insects. Trouble is, they're cheaply made and the light fixture part always fails after about a year.
atmega328's now available. More flash! More SRAM!
Is there a was using the DorkBoard and the benito to output as a HID USB keyboard? I want my dorkboard to output keystrokes when it receives an interrupt on one(or more) of the pins.
I'm looking for a gentleman named Mark (if memory serves me) the I met at the beat off. Mark, if you're out there, please get in touch with me, email@example.com . By the way, your entry at the beat off was sweet.
To take advantage of the Benito's small size, I've zapped mine with a piece of software that, when plugged into a computer, causes the mouse to jump about randomly.
The size of the jitter can be adjusted by setting the "STEP" constant. 10 seems to be a pretty good number to make it seem like there's something wrong with your mouse. Anything larger, and it's pretty obvious that you're being messed with.
