Coding Badly

Any other "must-haves" for cart?

Powered USB hub to provide an extra level of protection for the computer when you accidentally short-circuit something.


Glad you mentioned that- I have one, but I may not have thought to use it  :smiley-eek:


Awesome, man.  You're on the right track.  Do you have pics of the room?  Sounds like a heck of a project.

You might want to get some TI CD4021 shift registers for parallel-to-serial (multiple input) conversion as well.  Always get more than you need, because at some point you'll flip the IC around, or misread the pin reference, or wire an output straight to ground....

Get lots and lots of 10K resistors, and 0.1uF ceramic caps.  Lots.
