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.

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!
