I finished the rest of the sub-busses today and got the full quarter-scale “MiniMe” harness completely working, with all 50 MinMs in it. It’s bright. The LEDs appear to draw considerably less power than I expected, but still more than I can pull through USB. So in this demonstration I’m supplementing USB power with a 7.5V battery pack.
Naturally I’m dying to start writing crazy animations and all that. But I’ve got to stick to the program. Next is to create the full-size wearable harness, and the structures that will hold it in place on my body.
