WTPA v1.0 Nerdery Update

Sunday, May 11th, 2008

WTF? Why isn’t Todd done the new boards yet?!? Oh, that’s right, he’s burnt out from a month of all nighters and is hanging out reading Conan novels and eating bon-bons.
Not only did I kick out some nasty robot combine harvesters with my buddy Rob, but I shook down WTPA for the first time recording some crusty hott lixx on the upcoming Parts and Labor album in Milwaukee last weekend. We’ll see how that hot mess turns out.

I’m still expecting the Rev 1 samplers to be out in EARLY JUNE. Available here and probably elsewhere…

Bent 2008 Wrap Up, WTPA v0.9 Assembly Photo Guide

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

Back in Chicago, rode hard, put up wet. Bent 2008 (which ruled) and a certain amount of hanging with hipster rocker dudes (get up late, sweaty) resulted in some pretty killer new patches for my lil’ blood.

In the meantime, big propers to the four brave souls who bought up the 0.9 kits! Below, for their benefit, is a really big and slow to load (and unapologetically un-artsy) photo of my kit which shows off where all the components go because my silkscreen layers in the PCB files are still a little crunked up. It’s late, and I just built new linkages for a small robot combine harvester. Really.
