This was meant to go out last night but.... yeah. I was drunk, what can I say.

Next up I'm going to revisit #Sprite Wand and have some of these 6 sides LED boxes done in flex. There's going to be a couple tweaks done to enhance chainability but this design should be quick and simple.

Did you take up the offer of sponsorship? Hope I wasn't commenting out of turn by asking osh Park to get behind this. Your first log had me diving into the IRis and associated rabbit holes of beam break sensors for timing gates in sunlight. Enjoying the project so far!

I didnt for this one as it was only a couple of bucks, and no not out of turn at all, OSHPark has been supporting my work for some time now. I'm not sure if/how I want to formalize it for this project, I would love to be able to use this kind of support to benefit someone who needs it more than myself, but haven't come up with any good ideas yet.

Personal opinion: removing the barriers/friction to you actually getting more of these boards made (and then tested) so that others can then vicariously learn would be very valuable. Knowledge and standing on the shoulders of giants is way more scalable than manufacturing capacity so I reckon you should say "yes to OSH" and I bet in the parallel universe where you said no, there weren't as many useful lessons learned by others looking on.
