  • So, presumably '+' is for 5V input and '-' is for ground? Or should I use the 'GND' pin for ground?
  • Before I start fooling around with PatternPaint uploads to BlinkyTiles, I wanted to ask a couple of questions: If I use the "restore firmware" option, will it restore the original programs (with button selection) to the LightBuddy, or is the firm…
  • I'm interested in powering the Lightbuddy through the pins on the board (rather than through the USB connector). Can I do that? I haven't been able to find a description of the pins. It looks like one of them is labled "3V3". Does that mean it will o…
  • Another question regarding BlinkyTile power: Is it possible to daisychain BlinkyTile constructions? That is, could three dodecahedrons be connected in series along their edges with either Blinky connectors or jumper wires? I'm guessing that this t…
  • So, as I understand it, the fuse should limit the current sufficiently that the current through the USB doesn't exceed the what either the LightBuddy or PC can handle, while current/power requirements are met by the external supply? Is this correct? …
  • Naive question: I've been reading the discussion above about LightBuddy, Teensy and Fast LED and Arduino, and recently ran across this, regarding the Teensy https://www.pjrc.com/teensy/tutorial.html It describes a process for setting up the …
  • Another question about BlinkyTile programming (this one actually includes wiring as well): I noticed that in Jason Coons' description of using an Arduino to control BlinkyTiles: https://github.com/jasoncoon/BlinkyTileFastLED he connects 5V, …
  • Thanks, Matt. Actually, I think I've started to get the PatternPaint thing figured out. I've also learned a lot by reading the documentation for Daniel Garcia's (https://github.com/focalintent) FastLED library. As far as I can tell, it's spe…
  • Hello Blinky makers. I am new to the discussion forum, so please forgive me if I violate any arcane protocols of maker etiquette. I am planning to get some BlinkyTiles soon and will probably start by building a dodecahedron. I have downloaded and …
