The heat here just refuses to relent, my garage is too hot for soldering and focusing and such. So my projects have all say mostly silent for far too long.
The Oscillighter is at a point where I am just kind of putting things together. I’ve had so many ideas for it, alternative ways to do things, etc. And I haven’t even finished this one.
The core of it is just a 40106 IC running 4 oscillators into 4 different colored LEDs. But it’s designed to be more then just a colorful blinky box. It will have a wand which can be used like a pen, connected to the control box by a long cord, so you essentially have full control or can let someone else run the controls while you play.
I also want it to feel natural and work well for light painting since that is it’s purpose. I think the wand works nicely for handwriting as well as just general sweeps and strokes of light. So it will be pretty cool when it’s done.
If I can finish it. lol
