Tech Stuff

My current task is to build some stuff for the Computerspiele Museum. Thats not as exciting as it sounds, however it totally fits to the stuff I’ve been doing over the last months. An interface/video player is to be controlled using a joystick while LEDs are lit correspondingly. Again, Christian was very helpful here and provided me with a basic idea, how to build this. The plan changed various times since at first I was told I had to work with 12V LEDs, no one knows why. That sounded easy at first because I thought I could simply take those LED clusters that replace common halogen lights. But it turned out that most of them are not dimmable, unless you take really expensive ones (~€ 30,-). So now I use 3W ones on a heat sink. looks quite nice.

I even found a shop to buy arcade hardware such as knobs, joysticks etc. Sure there’ll be more fun with that soon :-)
