This week is Welcome Week at NYU. Over the next two years I will be pursuing a Master of Professional Studies from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program and as part of the program I will be documenting my work here! This will include successes and failures, and ultimately the processes of iterating until getting something right. This section of my site is all about process. If you are interested in seeing polished final work head over to “Interactive” in the menu above!
Since receiving the PCBs and successfully soldering the board together I have been trying to rewrite code for the I2C port expander. This has been immensely difficult! The Inkplate Arduino Library makes considerable use of an “Mcp” class, which is written to work with the MCP23017 GPIO expander IC. These chips are quite difficult to […]
Last week we attended “Playtest Thursday” on the second floor of 370 Jay St with our games. I came away from the experience with some very specific feedback. Seeing a number of people play the game showed me things I didn’t anticipate. Some folks approached the cabinet and immediately treated it as a touch screen. […]
The boards arrived! Amazingly within an hour of one another. Based on the experience I think that JLCPCB is a better value. With shipping OSHPark was $55.50 for 3 boards. JLCPCB was $26.36 for 10 boards. Aside from a higher cost OSHPark also left sharp bits of tabs around the edges of the boards which […]
