Running Projects

Ikea LED Walllets add some fancy WS2812b LEDs to the big Ikea wallhardwareSid
Retro-PSU money boxUsing a coffee-cup as till for our little sweets/drinks shop has proven to be problematic, because some people took it as free-to-take money source. We will replace it with a piggy-bank type box where money can be thrown in but not taken out. A beautiful old home-made PSU functions as box itself. We will add an arduino driven code lock that can unlock the box.securityJoekutz
