here it is: the finished hecking cane!
@toilet now that it has an onboard computer of its own, it can be remote-controlled over its second wireless interface from our phone, or do things on preprogrammed schedules/conditions. it should be pretty versatile!
@toilet oh, and let's not forget that we made the GPIO header as accessible as possible, so it's also useful for interfacing with other electronics - addon boards are a possibility, as is using the SPI bus to hack on stuff, etc
would adding a rubber stop at the end to keep it from slip sliding around on the floor inhibit it's antenna functions? (is that what the orb was?)
@starrycosmos the orb was a steel ball... before we had a rubber stopper there, but it was wonky and wearing out fast. we'll consider attempting to reattach it anyway.
