Quelab Demoscene Hack for chipKIT Uno32 and Basic I/O Shield

http://youtu.be/Vd0ZXfAmWjE

It’s Throwback Thursday #TBT and we’ve got an old-school, silly post. Remember Demoscenes? We’re bringing them back! If you hadn’t already seen this one, Quelab—a hackerspace in Albuquerque, New Mexico—wrote it for the chipKIT Uno32 using a chipKIT Basic I/O Shield, which has an on-board OLED screen. To make it yourself, head on over to the post on Quelab.net for the details.

P.S. Play with the Basic I/O Shield’s four switches and potentiometer for more options 😉

KickStarter: StickyBUGs for Arduino and chipKIT


Forget about wiring and soldering. StickyBUGs are low-profile and stackable modular boards that let you quickly and easily create your own shields to fit into your space-constrained Arduino® based project. In addition to their small size and pluggable functionality, they automatically handle both 5V and 3.3V systems, so they can be used with the chipKIT embedded platform.

Learn more on the Kickstarter page!

There’s a cool little LCD out there that is made for Arduino, but you too can make it work with chipKIT. You need only have the latest version of MPIDE.

  • You can buy the display here
  • The library is here (it worked no mods needed)
  • The sample code is here
Enjoy!
