First few days

A project log for The Most Annoying Machine

Pointless machines are great but The Most Annoying Machine is... really annoying! Mission accomplished.

I'm very pleased with the response to The Most Annoying Machine! I think the switches are on back-order from Farnell so there are probably a few people making their own :) Hackaday is a great blog and I read most of the entries so seeing another of my projects on it is very satisfying! The description by Brian Benchoff was great as well.

I will make a guide on how to make your own soon (maybe a couple of months). It is very simple as far as electronics go so don't feel the need to wait for me. The files for laser cutting a box are available but if you don't have access to one then I am sure you could get by without.

Just now the code is crude (I hacked it together in a evening or so). I will implement a proper sleep mode to conserve battery life soon. Additionally, someone on the hackaday blog pointed out the switch has a finite life so I will look into ways of minimising the number of pulses to reset the switch.

I'd like to get a case cut from metal too. I will be looking into that.
