The main difference between this and all the other firmware I could find is that configuring the key mapping is really easy, and its debouncing actually works.
It does require something with built-in USB host support like a Leonardo or a LilyPad. And since I'm using actual C++ flow control it does need a little more EEPROM space than most firmwares, but I mean, as long as it fits, right? You're not gonna be running an OS on this thing.
If you're preventing me from reading your articles, how the bleep do I know whether I want your mailing list? (Anyway, the answer is no. I never subscribe to mailing lists that only serve to alert me to new "content". I have an RSS reader for that.)
I was really annoyed at all of the Arduino-based DDR pad firmware out there so I ended up writing my own using modern C++ and what feels like reasonable software engineering practices. As a bonus it actually feels really precise. Check it out if you're at all interested. https://git.beesbuzz.biz/fluffy/DDRuino/
@embr Definitely check to see if they have enough power to overcome their own weight, especially if you have hills. I have an ebike that I bought in 2013 and I ended up not riding it much because its top power output wasn’t enough. :(
I have no idea what’s good out there. I’m an investor in https://evelo.com/ but I honestly have no idea if they’re any good to ride.
A weird/fun dream about a terrible TV show
So I had a dream about Fuller House, the Netflix continuation of Full House, a bland sitcom from the 80s and 90s.
No no hear me out.
So I haven’t actually seen the show, but in the dream the show turned out to be a really clever subversion of shitty 80s and 90s TV, where instead of it being a bland family sitcom, it turned out that all of the characters in the show were mutants with different superpowers, and the show progressively got stranger and stranger. It kept on wildly shifting styles, like one episode would be animated while another would be done in the style of kids doing their own crappy Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers fantasy roleplay in the back yard with a cheap camcorder.
And then the plot that developed was that neo-San Francisco was emerging with different mutant “alphas” who were treated differently in extreme ways due to their social class and assumptions about whether they’d be violent or dangerous. The main characters of the show were embraced for their powers (Danny, for example, had the ability to assimilate different animals’ characteristics and so he became a star of childrens’ TV shows, but then a random homeless person with the same powers was immediately persecuted by the cops).
Also Uncle Jesse was played by a different 80s archetypal heart-throb-turned-washed-up-old-man actor in every episode. I don’t think it had anything to do with his alpha power, it was just for comedy.
One of the subplots was that Danny’s powers had residual effects that gave him chronic pain issues, like he had a role on TV as a friendly snake but this made it very difficult for him to use his limbs when he’d get them back and he ended up preferring to stay a snake whenever possible. He also had an adorable powered wheelchair that he operated with his tailtip.
Anyway even with all that I found the show kind of difficult to watch and I ended up just checking out the scripts from the library, and they were a lot of fun to read... but you don’t have to take MY word for it. [ba ba baaa]
I downloaded Brave just to see what it looks like in the actual browser. Disappointed that the icon didn't come through, but I can surely fix that.
@anonny125 It's always fascinating to me when someone claims to be a fan of a piece of media but then also demonstrates that they entirely missed the fucking point.
