Preview of the Gabotronics Mixed Signal Scope:

 

 

To submit your entry, make an entry into this thread with the following:

1 - A small description of your project.

2 - A picture or video of your setup

3 - Code.

4 - Schematic(rough/hand drawn is fine as long its legible)

 

About judging the winner :

A week before the contest ends, a poll will be created with all the project entries. Only members of the forum will be allowed to vote.

The contest will roll over to the next month if there are fewer than 5 projects(four or less).

 

A few simple rules to follow:

- You must be a member of the 43oh forum at least a week before your submission.

- One entry from each member will be permitted.

- Your project can be anything based around the MSP430. You may interface the MSP430 to another controller.

- You may reuse code from anywhere as long as you give credit to the original author.

- You must submit code and schematics of your project with a proper description.

- You can submit your MSP430 project, even if it was created before the annoucement of the contest.

- You must have at least 5 posts in the forums, for your entry to be considered when the voting begins.

- A member is free to modify his/her code to perfection, till the closing date, as long as the original entry is not change.

For eg: If a member submits "Launchpad controlled Space Shuttle", he/she can modify code, schematics and hardware and improve upon it till the closing date. But a change in project to "Launchpad controlled Robot" will not be allowed. Hopefully this will encourage members to post their projects early and not play the waiting game.

I have couple of things brewing, not sure which one to finish and submit, but I will definitely use Princess Leia in my demo :D

I think you should disallow any entry that makes use of stuff that nerds like us would be distracted by ie: Star Wars music, Princess Leia Bikini's, Boobs or any other sort of Nerd Temptations.

 

I mean, who wouldn't vote for an MSP430 blinky light project if the LEDs were in Princess Leia's top?!?

What's that supposed to mean???

Below the belt :D

Just joking, I will be hi-jacking some of your MIDI stuff, great job.

Speaking of MIDI, the capacitive touch sensing capability of msp430 paired with keyboard/controller made out of etched PCB would make a great project. It could be a standard keyboard with velocity or something a la KORG Kaoss.

I actually was thinking about doing a midi controller like the KORG Kaoss. I was going to use an old laptop trackpad. I hit some bumps along the way, and gave up on it a little too quick. If you were to use the new captouch stuff with your own pcb, that would be pretty impressive.

I think I'd have to vote for "blinky boobies". Just sayin'. ;)

Hmm... Wow we are off topic; I like it! Reminds me of my brain.

 

I was thinking Portman > Fisher no matter what generation. If Jabba didn't have such an eye for fashion, I don't know that we'd even be talking about Leia.

See! We do need Nerd Police.

Or maybe more Ritalin.

ABSOLUTELY correct! Members, PLEASE stay on... Oooh look! A squirrel!
