Video is definitely coming…will probably work on that and a series of blogs posts on the project over the Christmas holiday. I also plan to share the code, either on my blog, on the Code site, or both. One thing I learned in the process of putting this together is that while the local web server for the gadgeteer ethernet module is convenient, it doesn’t stand up to the level of traffic the Kinect can throw at it. Ended up switching to UDP and works much better that way.
Resistors…well, my vision’s pretty good since lasik…the problem is presbyopia, which we’re all gonna get eventually. And you’re right that the color stripes are pretty widely varied from what they’re supposed to look like. Thankfully, I have a very nice meter with which to verify what my eyes are telling me.
Now, I need to get some bins and pick up some more resistors. The kit I have only has about 50 total, I think.
Question for you…if you run two resistors in series, does that work in an additive fashion? That is, if I have 2 10 ohm resistors in series does that give me effectively 20 ohms resistance?
