I’ve done it again.
I had a cool idea and then I strangle the joy out of it with “important” details only to derail my glorious project because I overcomplicated it thinking i had to know a bunch of bs that turned out to be useless.
So I’m asking for help to hack this together so I can get started playing with some code.
I have a simple device. It’s a model ufo. It can house 14 leds. I am using a Pro Mini to run these, one led per pin. Simple. Only It doesn’t exist yet because…
I want it to be able to plug into a laptop usb to charge itself, but I don’t know how to actually assemble it to work. I can figure out how to hook up the TP4056 (blue charger shield to the usb and the battery, but I dont know how to run the power from the battery to the Pro Mini.
If somebody could explain this to me I could get on with my stupid life. And I would really appreciate it. If I can get this done, I have a platform to practice coding and adding sensors on. You know, the fun part!
Please help me get past this roadblock.
