2020-04-20 (M) PillarGame IoTHackDay

After the hackathon, some folks wanted to see the project through to the end. The goal was to run a playable game on the pillar. The first step was to reinstall the short light stack since the whole thing resided back in my apartment. We didn't sign up for the fourth fire of the project, but that's what we made for ourselves.
Fire number four

Our fire happened the same way as last time when we squeezed the power wires between the PVC cap and tube. This was not the worst thing to happen because none of the damaged parts were sensitive electronics or expensive components.

Inspecting the damage

Quinn and I puzzled over how we could prevent this from happening again. We added a length of small-diameter PVC to the inside so the wires would not settle into the cap, but we could use long conductors to keep disassembly serviceable.
Our best solution

Quinn and I finally got the table back together, yet riddled with tools. After the unexpected situation, we didn't get to programming, just set up and fire extinguishing.
