You are right the hackaday-page is about both projects !!
@Drezil I got myself this little guy !!
Potential use for the prototyping shield:
-> IR communication ( https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/ir-communication )
-> adding environmental sensors like LDRs or air pressure sensor (temperature sensor allready included)
=> basicly you can add allmost every sensor
-> doing some light shows with the build in 8 blue LEDs or the WS2812B (also on the board)
=> so basicly the use cases are allmost endless and you can build whatever you like
I finished the designe of the new case for the DIY-extension and ordered it on shapeways !!
I think sls-printing will work much better
That case looks great
My QI-Reciever is a bit different, but seems similar from the dimensions so it might also fit into that casing …
care to share the model for that?
For all others interested: Thats a little QI-Reciever from Amazon for upgrading your device (thus the micro-usb-adapter at the bottom).
I’m glad that this slowly takes shape
I think all of those reciever-PCBs are quite similar
I hope this fits, but I took almost every free space in my case, so that`s the best I can do for now.
Yeah sure it will be offered on shapeways!!
I tried printing such phonecases so many times but it seems it doesn`t work with FDM-printing … But SLS on Shapeways should be working nicely !!
This is link for the shop: http://shpws.me/Pm3A
Here I’m selling the variations of the cases but it’s more or less the price you would normally pay on shapeways plus about 1,5€ ( for further develompent ). I hope this is okey for potential buyers of this case
Made some programming adapters !!
Together with some pogo pins and an broken usb-cable this will be great !!
But I think the use of such a adapter is not urgent because the board can also be programmed by the fairphone with apps like Arduinodroid.
PCBs and cases arrived !!
Too nice !!
I also updated the app a little bit !!
Amazing stuff, dude.
Thanks, thats allways nice to hear
Hey fairphoners !! slight_smile:
here are some updates on this project:
I finally had time to solder up the programming adapters, like you can see
Together with a cable tie the result is quite satisfying:
The new version of the case has also arrived from shapeways, this time in blue.
And now I want to show you how to enhance the pcb with QI-charging.
1. Open the enclosure of the qi-charger and remove the PCB with the coil carefully:
2. Now put the PCB on the adhesive foil as shown in the following picture:
3.Stick the adhesive sheets together again:
4. Grap your enamelled copper wire (it`s soldering time):
5. Cut two peaces with a length of 11 cm and remove the varnish on all ends with a sharp knife:
6. Clamp in the PCB on a peace of metal (to get a smooth back):
7. Grap your soldering iron and some tin:
8. Now put the PCB into the case and form the copper wire with a tweezer:
9. Solder the copper wires to the reciever board:
10. Reunion ( put together what belongs together ):
Right now I don`t have a QI-charger to test but I will borrow one from a friend !!
@Drezil what do you think?
Those who want the PCB could also get some copper wire, pogo pins or the milled programming adapter!! Just ask
Have a nice day!!
Have the WS2812B finally arrived? or is there an ETA for them?
How is your Jugend-Forscht-Projekt going? Haven’t read through the whole proposal-document yet, but how it is coming along with those deadlines?
I still have to order some parts for that tinker-board (like atmospheric sensors (CO, Benzenes, etc.)). How do the pogo-pins work on the thing you soldered together? For me they look “too long”. Do they connect reliably?
nah… WS2812B are still not in house …
JugendForscht is just working fine but for now I only had to write the documentation on 2. march I have to do my presentation but that isn`t so hard
the pogo-pins are somekind an alternative for the other programming adapter the negative side of the pogos is, that you have to press them down to the port of the pcb but normally they have a better connection
I also thing that i will adjust the case, so that there is more space for the qi or so
I could also add some ICs or components to your package if you would like that.
I thought of small potentiometers, LDRs, SMD transistors, female breakaway-headers, SMD switches or buttons i think that would be cool for tinkering and with a little bit of soldering practice it’s no problem to bring them on the board
This project will become open source I will release the data on my hackaday account !!
Edit: Files can be found here.
Have fun with them !!
The WS2812B’s have finally arrived !!
The next week I will be able to solder everything and load the bootloader !!
So those who want one should text me or like this post !!
Better be fast I only have 9 boards
Also tell me if you need cooperwire or some other components like the programming adapter
-> -> Those who want one can send me their address and can get further information in PM!!
EDIT: new case version with more free space
EDIT: programming adapter not needed !! EASY sketchupload via ArduinoDroid possible !!
=> How to upload without adapter ? => ArduinoDroid as uploader
All you need to know about the extensions available for the FP2: extension-WIKI
UPDATE: App and sketch finally available !!
=> “Extension Control” on PlayStore (free to download)
=> sketch for use with “Extension Control” on GitHub
MORE INFORMATIONS IN THE WIKI
The shield-fever got me…
This will be a soundreactive addon for the DIY-shield !!
The NeoPixels will make the deal
Hey this looks great! I’d like to get one as well. Just cant send any PMs…
I wrote you !! Check out your PMs or doesn`t this work at all?
