After many long hours with soldering iron and glue gun in hand I am finally done with the LEDs. The circuitry is complete for the main unit. This is a large milestone. Here are some pictures with the LEDs wired up before I attached the foil coated plastic covers. By the way, I tested them out with the covers on and I can't get over how perfect the illumination looks. Sorry if I keep bragging about that, but it's not so often that my ideas work out that well.
The code for the Teensy and the ATmega LED/IR controller are up on the git.
It will no doubt change as the project develops, but at this point it seems functional.
What's next? - The next steps include
- Testing both hardware and software and refining it as desired.
- Building the remote keyboard, both structurally and electronically.
- Writing code for the keyboard.
- Attaching some legs so that it stands up, and other minor details.
