.... and people where more interested in it than my actual project  :(











It's a silly little 'electronic business card' that sat inside my plinth - ran on an ATMEGA2560 with an OLED display controlled by some MX Whites. This was for my end of year uni project last year :X

Apologies for the crappy photos/no close ups, all I could find in my archives F:

It literally is just an Arduino running M2TKLIB (user-interface library) and you can click into folders to find contact info hahahaa, was really pointless, was just added to draw people towards the plinth. Which it did achieve, but a little too well, people where looking at it more than my project hah!

Did the laser-cut plates myself :)

Hey if it draws people in then you are pretty much an advertising genious, as opposed to an apple genious which is not, but apple seem to be marketing geniouses also.

Beside the point do you own a laser cutter bae ?  Also i wish i got to do somthing cool at uni, instead of belt feeding politically correct essays.

We should take this to pm i will pm you later. I am assuming you at least had a decent keyboard to type said thesis. Ever since i finished my edumacation i don't spend as much quality time with my keyboards. My wife thinks she has priority and this is only true because the keyboards dont give me attitude.

Dude yes, I typed the whole damn thing on my HHKB and it felt amaze.
Maybe you should consider doing a PhD to reconvene with your beloveds, only priority is the keyboard priorityTM.
