Arduino Retro LED Matrix Handheld element14 Presents  | AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile | Project Videos   The matrix circuit for Project Hawthorne is a little different in that it's all NPN transistors instead of the "simpler" combination of a shift register and decade counter. I feel like this is less abstract and easier for a novice to understand.   ...
PlayStation Classic Portable Prototype element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos     In my quest to hack the PlayStation Classic, I have to first open up the system to see what's inside and what makes it tick. In this video, we'll teardown the PlayStation Classic console and explore its insides, determine the state of its build quality, and see what kinds of electronics are hiding inside! ...
PlayStation Classic Portable Prototype element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos     Continuing on our quest to hack the PlayStation Classic and coming off the heels of the console teardown, I thought it might be fun to also take a peek inside the PlayStation Classic's USB controllers and see how they're put together. ...
Xybernaut Wearable PC element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos     As part of Project Xyberpunk for element14 Presents, I needed to teardown the Xybernaut MAIV wearable computer. In this video, I'll take the Xybernaut MAIV teardown to green boards to find out what kind of processor runs the Xybernaut MAIV as well as determine what other hardware is present inside it. ...

Xybernaut Wearable PC element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos     In this video, we'll walk through how to install a TFT LCD screen on on a Raspberry Pi for small form factor or portable projects. This screen will form part of the head-mounted display for Project Xyberpunk on element14 Presents.   FBTFT driver: https://github.com

Xybernaut Wearable PC element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos     As part of Project Xyberpunk for element14 Presents, I wanted to explore the original, stock hard drive from the Xybernaut MAIV wearable computer. In this video, I'll use Linux Mint to explore the contents of the drive, see what kind of software support was required for the Xybernaut MAIV wearable computer, and get an idea of what it would take to replicate the system on ...
Xybernaut Wearable PC element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos     In this video, we'll use the Arduino Leonardo-compatible Adafruit ATmega32u4 Featherboard to build a joystick-style mouse that can be used with any USB-equipped computer. This will be built into Project Xyberpunk to replace the Trackpoint-style mouse module in the original design.   Here's the code, for those of you following along at home:   //*************** ...
NES Zapper on RetroPie element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos   For Project QuickShot, I essentially wrote a gesture-controlled "airmouse" for the ATmega32u4 on the Adafruit featherboard. Here is the final version of the sketch.   //***************************************************** //Project QuickShot v1.0 //Arduino-driven Light Gun Emulator for LCDs //Jan 11, 2019 // //Matthew Eargle //Element14 Presents //element14.com/presents // ...
NES Zapper on RetroPie element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos     Project QuickShot is a variation on the Nintendo NES Zapper light gun that is designed to provide emulated light gun functionality for modern displays. QuickShot uses an ATmega32u4 to create mouse movements based on the relative movement of the Zapper's barrel. It's a different skill set, so it's a different kind of hand-eye coordination challenge from the original! ...
NES Zapper on RetroPie element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos     The LSM9DS1 is a 9-degree-of-freedom accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer module that can add motion-sensing capabilities to any Arduino project. In this video, I will show you how to use the LSM9DS1 with Arduino IDE including how to set up the LSM9DS1 libraries in Arduino. ...
NES Zapper on RetroPie element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos     Have you ever wondered how does an NES Zapper work? Let's take a look at the inside during this NES Zapper teardown. This ins't, of course, a REAL Zapper, but a 3rd-party replica that works the same way. I'll be using the shell of this to create a new device as part of Project QuickShot. ...
NES Zapper on RetroPie element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos     The Weller WE1010 soldering station teardown shows the inner workings of one of the leading soldering stations on the market for hobbyists, classrooms, and small production facilities. I decided to teardown my new Weller WE1010 soldering station to see exactly how it works. Besides, nothing is really yours until you tear it apart and put it back together, right? ...
