The intent of this portable kit is to be able to make electronics projects anywhere I go.
The basics are in oscilloscope multimeter soldering equipment some parts and micro controllers. With these or do we know parts in a laptop computer I can build just about anything at least to the prototype phase
With a small amount of money you can re-create this kit with your own equipment starting small you can build it up as I did. check out the video for full instructions.￼
Eric found out his raspberry pie pico can get stuck and not boot anymore in this video he shares how to wipe the flash memory using the nuke file which completely erases anything you’ve done and un bricks your raspberry pi pico if you have a bricked raspberry pi pico this video is for you
Eric ran into issues with his raspberry pi pico where sometimes it wouldn’t run the main dock pie script this turned out to be related to the I2C initialization a simple delay in the set up of the code seems to have solved it and micro python works normally￼. If your raspberry pi pico won’t run main.py then give this a try just add a delay a little sleep function in the beginning of your code and see if it helps check out the video for more information￼
Today Eric tested how easy it is to get the raspberry pi pico up and going with micro python
Stay tune for a future video where we get the pie pico up and going with the lithium ion battery pack and much more
Today eric reviewed the new labs 4 GB raspberry pi for starter kit it’s a very nice kit for anyone to get started with raspberry pi Eric will be using this for an upcoming goes weather satellite decoding￼
On Tuesday in the Lab we took a look at a new robot chassis that will be used for upcoming projects. The frame we are converting is a childs ride-on Power Wheels car with 6 volt battery system. The power system will be converted to a 12 volt system with various supplies for Raspberry Pi and Arduino devices.
