    Max7219 module as whirlpool timer

    Here's a project I completed recently that has made use of several things I've learnt about as it progressed... It's a handheld timer that counts down from 9 and displays a whirlpool animation after reaching zero. My nephew is fascinated by whirlpools and by the countdown timer on my phone so I...

    28x2 MPPT Success, 50v 35amp ,2.1Kw Panels

    Hi PiCaxeDB Have you been able to use your Pi4 to programme your Picaxe? I have been using a painfully ancient windows laptop but was thinking of getting a Pi4 to do my Picaxing on.

    Has PEBBLE Been Abandoned?

    Alan: I edited the gif on a windows 10 machine using "Paint 3D", I'd never heard of it before, I don't know if it can do transparent layers. My Pebble's "Save or Load" window also describes this socket as TERMINAL_1332 so I guess you haven't corrupted it.

    Has PEBBLE Been Abandoned?

    I recently completed my first picaxe project and found PEBBLE invaluable, and refreshingly simple to use too. one thing that caught me out for a while: I think there is a typo on PEBBLE's (v 3.1) programmer socket pin description but only in the orientation shown in the image attached, where SI...

    Beer Brewing Thermometer

    I too am a home brewer so I made a version of this as my first proper Picaxe project (this is my first post). I keep my mashing beer warm in the oven so I modified the functionality to sound alarms (piezo) if the temperature is either too high or too low. I then have to adjust the oven temp to...
