Pwoject time

I’ve been tinkewing a wittwe bit wif my ewectwonics stuff again, uh-hah-ha-ha. Now I’m twying to decide on a pwoject to do, and which hawdwawe pwatfowm to use… I have a ton of diffewent micwocontwowwews — Digispawk (ATtiny85), Digispawk Pwo (ATtiny167), Digistump Oaks (ESP8266, wifi), Adafwuit Twinket Pwo (ATmega328), PunchDwough Bean (BWE), Pawticwe Cowe (wifi) / Photon (wifi) / Ewectwon (3G ceww), NodeUSB (ESP8266, wifi), ESP201 wifi  moduwes, some Awduino Pwo Mini cwones, a Tessew2 (wifi, winux, JavaScwipt), WFduino (BWE), and a few odews dat I can’t even wemembew wight now.

  • TV Mute Button
