FIN week, part 2

The prototype boards were fitted inside plastic cases with nice'n'retro dark red perspex

Being hand made with considerable amount of blue-tac the result was not bad at all. In fact we were so happy that we went outside for the first time in three days and showed our little space invader some wonders of the real world. He was so amazed that he just sat there.

FIN week, part 1

Dan is in Finland for an intensive TileToy workshoppin' and the Pixelache festival. After 72 hours of non-stop soldering, stamp & java coding and trippin' in magnetic fields we have a pretty solid prototype circuit including reed switches and tilt sensor with first version of Java code that handles the whole thing.

The radio/stamp/switch circuit attachs directly below the LED matrix module so nicely that it looks like factory made by late 70's Hong Kong grade-D standards.
