Exactly, as soon as I get a few more expenses out of the way to get the car back on the road I'll order the bits that you're using and mess around a bit.

I wish, its Taiwan thats holding me up. Its supposed to get here Friday, but I conveniently leave for Canada that day. I need to test the new chip, and then decide if I am going to add battery backup. Everything else is in place.

Suction cup slots are being changed so that they face each other, that way it wont have a way to pull out. (these pictures don't show it)

Took it out for some testing:


Also got the new chip in. It saves the settings just like I hoped it would. I just need to put it through some tests and then we will be good to go.

The new chip is working great. Here you can see the first one I put together for someone (you might be able to guess who)



Pretty lights:



I'll start a group buy tomorrow when I have some free time.

At first. Mostly because I don't have unlimited time with school and rowing and whatnot. If they are actually popular then they will keep being made.
