On Pause

A project log for NoteOn Smartpen

Slim, wireless, self-contained. No special paper, no base station.

I'm putting the NoteOn project on pause for a bit. Developing NoteOn's firmware has been more tedious than I expected, and I've lost interest in the project as a result. I'll probably start working on NoteOn again 6-12 months from now. In the meantime, feel free to use or adapt it however you like. The design files are licensed CCv4-BY-SA and are available here. The firmware is licensed GNU GPLv3 and is available on GitHub.

I won't be proceeding further in the HaD Prize. Thanks to Hackaday and Supply Frame for putting it on, and good luck to everyone still in the running.

Aww, and just when I found it. Ah well.

Take a break, take some time, decide if it's something you want to work on or not! Don't let folks pressure ya into slaving over code you hate.

I can totally relate to getting burned out on a project. I'm sorry to see the NoteOn go on hiatus for a while, I look forward to seeing your progress when you do return to it. I think it's a very cool project, and would have been a very strong contender for the HaD Prize.
