Let The Games Begin!

The package arrived from redbull today, and almost got sent back because they forgot to put my apartment number on the address label.  Luckily I stopped by the post office to check on it.  And OMG.


Over the top laser cut packaging.

Crazy long addressable rgb strips.



Pin Headers.


So many IC’s to learn, someone should post all the datasheets.

We’ve got until May 5th to make our creation and we’ve got to make a video of it less than 3 mins so minimal build video.  We’ve got a plan which we think will blow people away but I don’t want to give anything away so our competition gets a heads up so ask Kyle or Me.  I’m working on some stepper motor controls and this weekend we’ll start construction.  Let’s do this!

Redbull Creation Contest 2013 Here we come!!!!

This year UmmDorian was awesome enough to enter us into the 2013 RedBull Creation Contest. This years hardware is called the TURBULL ENCABULATOR!!

“The TurBULL Encabulator is our very own super simple, but extremely complicated, multi-function circuit board designed to give Makers a powerful tool in the creation of controllable LED lighting art and inventions. The Arduino-controllable board features a tri-axis accelerometer, temperature control sensor, as well as a 2nd generation reciprocating dingle arm (no, not really) in a Bulls and Sun shaped circuit board.”

Our TurBULL Encabulator is in the mail and should be here very soon. Stay tuned for more updates!
