General Discussion / Re: The Hap-eRanger: a haptic TOF ranging support cane

 :D  RSVP's indeed.

Well. OK. I'm guessing you want to know what's happening, so here goes...

I'm wrapping up the design for the case (the STL's are in the github repository) and have had to work out tricky details such as how to mount an LRA Wireling board securely without damaging wires. The prototype uses small zip-ties to fasten the LRA and cable separately, protecting the thin LRA wires while permitting some freedom of movement for the LRA buzzer to vibrate. I broke 5 LRA Wirelings coming up with this design, which fortunately is now effective.


Another interesting challenge has been figuring out how to mount the TOF Wireling. The TOF Wireling uses a Class 1 infrared laser that has a range of about 2m under ideal conditions. Protective glass impairs range sensitivity, so I had to opt for a recessed design.  Fasteners are also a challenge in a small form factor. The TOF case is fastened to the main case with an internal zip-tie.



Also, if you know any blind people who might be interested in evaluating this, let me know. I do have testers other than myself, but the more the merrier.


General Discussion / Communicating wtih Wirelings

How do you communicate with a Wireling module?

 I know it's I2C protocol and the library is probably <Wire.h> but what are the commands to do so?

For example, using a Wireling Adapter Shield connected to a TinyScreen+, how do you get information from a Moisture Sensor into Arduino code?  Are there addresses involved?  etc, etc.

Can you point me to a page(s) on the website that has this info?

The problem persists even after reflashing and reconnect power. I'm guessing that the bus connecting the main board to the screen got damaged, although I can't see anything wrong on it.

Right now I reprogrammed it so it only uses the top 3/4 of the screen. There's also a 6px high strip near the button that's not affected. But if I draw anything in the area, lines would appear across it.

Hey John,

This is awesome!

If you wanted to make this project tinier, TinyCircuits now has a Wireling version of the thermal camera board used in this project: https://tinycircuits.com/collections/wireling-sensors/products/ir-thermal-camera-wireling

Are you still experiencing issues with the bottom text on the TinyScreen+?

There aren't many things by the switch that would possibly harm the hardware, but I am curious to know if turning the unit off & on and then reprogramming it would help.

Let me know if you end up figuring it out!

Thank you

Hello Timm,

All of our Eagle Files for all of our boards are located on our GitHub directly and are linked in the Download sections of the Product Pages of our boards.

I hope that helps!

Hello, I'll keep it short and simple as well.

The Tiny Arcade and Pocket Arcade platform does not support the ability to use emulators or ROMs due to the hardware not being strong enough.

That being said, all the games that exist for the platform were specifically designed for the Tiny Arcade/Pocket Arcade so they work really well! We do have a growing list of games available: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Kits/Tiny-Arcade-All-Games/

Thanks for the question!

I used a TinyScreen+ and STBLE TinyShield to test the example included on this Learn Page: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Communication/Bluetooth-Low-Energy_TinyShield_Tutorial/

and I did not encounter the same error.

Can you tell me more about what hardware you are using, and what you have selected under the Tools menu in the Arduino IDE?

Thank you,

Somehow, TinyCircuits projects would be just soooo much cooler with a wireless charger. Electric toothbrushes have tiny wireless chargers. Why can't we?

Pleeeeeeez? (for water-resistant projects!)
