got the very first version of the robot working - current cost is at $9.89 ($5.40 motor/chassis, $1.14 digispark, $2.70 lipo, $0.40 breadboard + jumpers, and $0.25 motor controller)! hoping to get the motor/chassis cost to $2.25 (rn it uses aluminium chassis and there are lot cheaper alternatives) and lipo to under $2, but hoping to switch to a more performant custom arduino which will replace the digispark+breadboard/jumpers, but will probably be a bit more expensive.
:twitter: One very last update about GWC SIP! I'm not great at using twitter (ironic much?), so I actually just found out about this a couple minutes ago! Feels amazing to not only be featured, but also have my project featured on Twitter Women Eng.
Yay -learned how to put websites online and published 3! 1st took me 12min to open a repo, open the folder in VS Code editor, then commit and push on GitHub desktop; 2nd time took me 7 mins and 3rd time took me 2mins 47 seconds !!🔥

🎸We made more progress on the _Summer of Making_ Smart Album Cover display… it finally listens to music playing in the room and gets the album cover! Here’s Tyler, The Creator’s*Flower Boy* and Drake’s _Nothing Was The Same_, which we think look exceptional 🌟. We’ve printed some of the parts for the frame (pictures on the GitHub Repo), and have to setup always listening and automatic volume adjustment, but after that it will be finished.
🖼️ My first submission for the Hack Club Fine Arts Gala - my profile picture was in need of a re-draw for a while, since my style changed quite a bit over two years...but knowing me, I wasn't just gonna re-make it. Nah, I had to i n t e n s i f y it far beyond reason. Also, I enjoy harsh shadows. huhuhu
