The bulky self made board out of 9 DRV2605l breakouts can no go into retirement. I successfully planned, ordered and equipped PCB is finally there and – hoooray – it works.

It took me some efforts to learn how to design a proper circuits and even more to reflow the tiny parts (thanks to my friends at Presseverykey). But it seems like I succeeded. Most of you may be familiar with circuit boards – to me at least it was a great excitement to see it working in the end ;-)

Next Step: As I couldn't find a worthy slim/small alternative single chip computer I decided to dismantle all the ports of the Rpi3b+ to finally fit everything except the battery directly IN the glove. Lets see how this works...
