Hi there from Maryland, USA

I forgot to do an intro. I’m Daff, a roboticist.
I got Ringo because of my addiction to controllers and vintage technology. Ringo was going to be a project of mine. I didn’t do it. Also, Ringo didn’t include the dedicated i2c ports. Instead, I made another project of it out of Arduino.
I’ll be like making robots and writing software. If you feel like adapting my software with your Ringo - I’m your guy, man

Here’s a redundant photo of the robot I am building in real life

Here’s a recent photo of that robot in my robot laboratory

Here’s a photo of my Ringo


Neat watch, what is it?

That, my friend, is the TinyDuino watch

TinyDuino watch is on sale

From my experience

  • The bt mod doesn’t fit, but who knows.

  • The battery and a small watch program/small program can last up to a day. It’s great for charging at night - so it’s ready to impress your coworkers and or waiter at breakfast or lunch. Or write something fancy at work for a date :joy:

  • It can be a bit loose after the firstish week or so. You might want to tighten the lid with tape :thinking: duct tape is rumored to be cyberpunk.

Neat stuff. Definitely fit for a cyberpunk dystopia (can’t wait)

I’ve made something similar back in high-school:

It was such a chick magnet, girls just love Arduino these days


I’m trying to escape this new wave of American communism. If I can find one person who even know what Arduino is - I’ll probably be spending more time outside of my shop and off my computer.

I did meet a kid walking through an elementary school who recognized my raspberry pi…once.

Hah, sounds like a fun story.

Huh… I thought America was always against communism :thinking: :thinking: :cold_sweat:

I have no idea where it is coming from… but they watch a lot of Star Trek.
I had two full blown communist professors in college. The farther I get away from it, the more I find people who have no idea what a computer is… America is a big place.

It seems there is some connection between Star Trek and Communism… quite interesting

WOW. Almost finished reading…but it seems like the same conversation when everyone talks about it. Honestly, some of it makes a lot of sense. Value has changed…when everyone can do VR or write their own programs - the value of other’s diminishes. That’s why I try to… I practice using my own devices. The Solar tool was a neat example of what I can do without pursing robots for 6 months.
