Awesome Videos Mike, I have a few images and videos i will try and get uploaded somewhere for you all to see, including the Titan Robot and Arc Attack from the discovery museum.

Hey Everyone, I was at the Maker Faire in Newcastle today, it was awesome smiley. Just want to say thanks to everyone i met there, even if i didn't spot who you are. A big thanks to Grumpy_Mike who had some really cool stuff. smiley

Surprisingly enough mowcius there are smiley and i know some of them. Any one panning anything over the next couple of weeks? PM me or post here. It would be good to get an active community for Arduino etc going in the area. smiley

I got this working fine, then added a second TIL-306 and it seems to count to 16 before it resets? i will look into this and post the results if i figure it out. Thanks for the help smiley.

If there's enough interest we can organise a regular Arduino (or any maker activity) get together / project session. Reply here if you're interested or PM me and we'll see if we can organise something  .

I am definitely That is for you mowcius smiley interested in a meet up / project session. I have been thinking of setting up a (at first online) hackerspace for the north east as i live in Teesside *Coughs* and there seems to be a gap from Leeds to Newcastle.

Thank you, I am not able to try this out right away but will let you know the results asap smiley

Thats great thanks PWillard, now i'm having a little trouble actually getting it working though so i will explain what i have done to try and make it count.

I have an Arduino Mega 1280 By the way.

I have connected the following
Latch to Pin 22
Clear to Pin 23
Pulse to Pin 24

The code i am using is below
Code:
const int Latch = 22;
const int Clear = 23;
const int Pulse = 24;

void setup() {               

  pinMode(Latch, OUTPUT);     
  pinMode(Clear, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(Pulse, OUTPUT);
  digitalWrite(Latch, HIGH);   // set the LED on
  delay(500);
  digitalWrite(Clear, LOW);   // set the LED on
  delay(500);
  digitalWrite(Clear, HIGH);   // set the LED on
  delay(500);

 
}

void loop() {
  digitalWrite(Pulse, LOW);   // set the LED on
  delay(500);
  digitalWrite(Pulse, HIGH);   // set the LED on
  delay(2500);
}

I am simply trying to get it to count up to 5. But it seems to just show random numbers sometimes smiley-confuse. Is there something i am doing wrong?

Just thought i would start a thread see if there are any workshops / people in the area (North East England) who use Arduino experienced or not. would be good to talk smiley.

Hiya, i have recently dug out some old electronics bits i had put to one side. one of them is a 16 pin 7 Seg display, with its own micro controller (TIL-306). I am just trying to wire this up to an Arduino so that i can either count button presses or send something from the Arduino to it. If any one could help that would be great  smiley. Thanks in advance.

Oh the Datasheet for the TIL-306 is attached
