    Towers of Hanoi Revisited

    This is my adaption of Rick100's Tower of Hanoi program from 2011. I have updated the original 08M program to run on a 08M2 also I had to modify the lookup tables for the servo position to suit my arrangement. As all components are 3d printed I can supply the STL files if required. Bill

    OK how does it work and can a Picaxe do it?

    Hi all. I have constructed the unit described be techElder. here is the 14m2 program I used. One addition I made to the circuit was to add a 1f super capacitor to the circuit. This allowed the operator to remove the battery and the lights and switched still worked up to 15 min with no...
