Arduino First Play
1st January 2013

With the help of a co-worker who soldered for me the minions and the battery shield and also gave me leds and a switch I could get to play a bit with external parts rather than just the internal leds and radio. So far I managed to control a led on/off as well as experimenting with the analogWrite to light it at different levels and also managed to use the switch to turn the led on and off which was really cool.

Next step is to use the leds and the switch on two different minions and to wirelessly transfer the switch status to control a remote led.

MinionCity-Battery-Shield-Works
2nd January 2013

Thanks to my co-worker I got the battery shield fully setup, initially I missed the switch and he managed to solder it to a mostly soldered shield and minion. Initial test seemed to indicate that it doesn't work but that was just me wrongly assuming that the led always lights up at startup, loading a blink sketch on the minion proved that the battery shield works just fine.

Note to self: Need to get loading a version across the radio to work, that would be extra cool and make maintenance of the sensor network a breeze. Will need to make sure that I don't brick the minions across the radio.
