So ! …. 2 years later, here an update on living with my dangerous Flash Destroyer hack ! First off, front and back picture :o)
I added few things since its birth …
A battery for the real time clock, really handy when you reprogram code and you don’t want to lose the current time …
4 buttons who are routed to the bottom left header, and who connect to the IO chip with green jumpers.
Some kind of feet, printed on my Prusa2 clone :o)
So what is it life since 2 years ??
well this is my principal clock on my desk and I use it from time to time has a prototype board.
So it turn out pretty handy and I still love the look, (and the weird look of people looking at it) :o)
