Hello all!

I'm not dead and have gotten to pick this project back up after a long time.

My current work isn't really ready to post, I'm still getting back into the swing of Arduino stuff again. Currently I'm looking at i2c-based IO expanders to consolidate some of the I/O pins on the Feather controller, maybe to allow 8-pin control of the TFT display.

The new Tricorder is still a to-be-built, I had to scrap the main board I was working on but the sensor array is still partly assembled.

It'll probably be a while before real updates happen but I still want to make progress on this.

Have you had any luck making progress? I know it can be tough.

Very glad to see an update for this project. I've been fiddling with my own tricorder design for some time, and as it so happens, also went down the route of using an I2C I/O expander (MCP23008). In my case, it's to handle the LEDs and buttons.
