Working on laser cutting the case. Also, we are working on flashing the Raspberry Pi 2 B's to support serial communication over FTDI (using 18-349 labs and materials) (11/10/16 ~ 7:30-12:00pm)

Working on additional laser cutting before class. We realized we had a mistake with the back panel where we forgot to cut out the vents for airflow.

Just finished cutting the supports for the frame in the FRC machine shop.

Working in the Morewood Maker space laser cutting more of the frame.

Going down to the FRC shop to work on case.

Working in HH right now! Today's focus is software.
RaspberryFarm 11 Jan 2016, 9:42 p.m. EST
In the FRC Machine shop assembly the racks with the acrylic glue.
RaspberryFarm 11 Jan 2016, 11:14 p.m. EST
Almost done! Two pegs left to glue. We'll let the sides set over night.

Still in FRC machine shop working in the case. Everything is looking really good right now. Thank you Girls of Steel for letting us borrow your pnuematic rivet gun.

On our way to hamerschlag for help

How to fix all the Pi problems 1. Flashed EPROM on the FTDI Chip back to factory settings. 2. Flashed Raspbian to the SD Card 3. Connect via FTDI Mini-USB to Master Computer 4. sudo python -m -b 115200 -p /dev/ttyusb1 4.1 Connects to the USB device via the serial port and runs it all through a python window 4.2 Possibly will also work with a screen command 5. Press ENTER 6. PRESS ENTER AGAIN 7. Everything should work.

The final plan: 1. Vasu has a HDMI to VGA adaptor 2. We will steal a VGA or HDMI monitor from some lab 3. Figure out how to move to case and all of the rest of the stuff to the setup table 4. Vasu is the most dedicated person alive! 5. We will win! 6. We need to build the functionality for controlling multiple slaves at the same time. Make the python launcher concurrent 7. Need to design demo, Bit coin miner? 8. Vasu will get the bit coin miner working!

Everything looks good, but Vasu Agrawal 's computer seems to be sad. #LinuxProblems
RaspberryFarm 15 Jan 2016, 8:01 a.m. EST
Vasu Agrawal has put the team on his back and made a beautiful demo!
MinesweepAR 17 Jan 2017, 10:35 p.m. EST
Vasu Agrawal and I finished the circuit! All 180+ wires work perfectly!
RaspberryFarm 15 Jan 2016, 6:19 p.m. EST
Everything is awesome! The demo was amazing, we just got off 3 hours of back-to-back presentations. It's been a lot of work, but after one last final push (all night long) we were able to wow everybody. Looking forward to the banquet tonight

Day 2 afternoon update! We made some significant progress today. We spent the morning (~10am) in RoboClub finishing cutting out the buttons and assembling the frame. After lunch (~2pm) we started working on designing our button implementation and doing the wood work at the FRC Woodshop.
MinesweepAR 17 Jan 2017, 2:02 a.m. EST
Day 2 Evening Update: Around 4pm we headed back to RoboClub to begin assembling the buttons. By dinner (~8pm) we had finished screwing and the buttons to the rails and taping the buttons of the buttons. After dinner we moved to HH to glue the foam into the buttons and tape the button tops.
MinesweepAR 17 Jan 2017, 2:03 a.m. EST
Day 2 Complete. Finally finished the hardware components and frame. After 2 grueling days or work we are a few hours behind schedule, but we are making progress. Vasu Agrawal is working on finishing up the circuit while the rest of the time will begin working on software on day 3. Check out our pictures to see the progress!
MinesweepAR 20 Jan 2017, 2:17 p.m. EST
It works! All done!
MinesweepAR 18 Jan 2017, 11:45 p.m. EST
We're hard at work outside of roboclub laying out the board! Come by and say hi!
MinesweepAR 20 Jan 2017, 3:12 a.m. EST
We are exhausted... after working for the last 18 hours almost constantly we are finally getting close to finishing. @adbensen is sleeping with the parts so we don't have to clean up.
MinesweepAR 20 Jan 2017, 3:13 a.m. EST
We are planning on coming to relive Andrew in a couple of hours to start assembling everything
MinesweepAR 20 Jan 2017, 12:03 p.m. EST
We've been hard at work setting everything up since 8:30am. It's getting tight. Hopefully we'll get everything done by demo.
