2021-08-13 (F) Weekly Summary

This Nintendo Zapper mod caught my eye, because, you know, bright orange. The hacker put a remote switching keychain inside to turn appliances on and off with the trigger. I can't say I didn't have a few ideas of my own.

Gravy Shock needed an introduction that can serve as a commercial. I will use it as the starting sequence for chapter one. I may introduce each chapter by a character giving exposition.
Soundtrack and voice recording

I added the introduction to the beginning of chapter one and spliced in some innocuous crowd sounds I recorded at a bar. My friend, who helped me create Gravy Shock, liked it but reminded me that the space station should have artificial gravity plates.
Editing chapter one again

Gravy Shock got derailed while I build a macro keyboard for the recording space. It will use a capacitive touch sensor board and microcontroller to perform tasks like recording and stopping. The touch sensors mean that it is nearly silent and shouldn't interfere with the microphone.
Diversion project

I encountered problems with my hardware. I planned to use a minimal microcontroller with a tiny form-factor, but it wouldn't cooperate with the sensor board's libraries, so I fell back to the Arduino Micro.
Micro soldered up

I modeled the top of the enclosure, and I had somewhere I could hold the components. My first print also proved that my dimensions were close, but I will update a few.
