This is where to find what PCBs are used for making R2-D2 work.

CuriousMarc Holo Lights v2.0

Ordering the PCBs ahead of time from OSH Park, the only thing I needed for these were the electronics components and the reflector cone.  These were a little tricky to assemble but not to bad.  I installed the .22uF capacitor in the tutorial to show you how it’s done, but I later took it out and added a 10k resistor piggy backing the 100k resistor for a fading effect using an Arduino sketch.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

To start with, instructions for assembly can be found here.  Once assembled, they just need to be tested out and put into your holoprojectors.

Just hook them up to a small 2v batter to test them out.



Soldering the Arduino to the RFL on a Teeces V3.2

Review Android Smartphone

The lighting system works off of the Arduino Pro Mini from sparkfun.com and can be found HERE To get this to work, it needs to have a 5pin header soldered to it and then soldered to the PCB of the RFL. Once, the header is soldered, it would be a good idea to program a sketch into the Pro Mini. We need an FTDI, Mini USB programing cable, a driver for the FTDI, and the Arduino Program Software.



The LED’s arrived!

My LED’s came in the mail along with the Arduino board from Sparkfun.com and the PCBs for the actual electronics.
