I got a subscriber who purchased some items from my Amazon Wish List. It’s my first purchase and very exciting! They purchased a few electronic items for me, and a few days later they showed up in the mail.
You can check out my Amazon Wish List here if you like – http://amzn.eu/hlxM5iA There’s no request to do this, or to purchase anything from it, but if you want to make my day, and help grow this channel – any purchase would be greatly received.
Items were a Digispark ATtiny85 development board, an ESP8266 12F board, and the cool item – an ESP8266 SMD adaptor (breadboard) board. This board only appears to be on Amazon at the moment, so if you want one – check out the links below!
With the ESP8266 and the adapter board I quickly soldered it up and put it to use as a useless yet fun Internet of Things (IoT) project which polls the “CheerLights” API and changes the colour of a Neopixel WS2812B 8mm diffused LED. This helped to prove my soldering was up to scratch, and that the board and the ESP8266 was working (and my 8mm diffused Neopixels – which have been sat in a draw since I bought them from Adafruit a while ago!!)
Enjoy the video, let me know what you think of the products, the soldering, and the project. Links to everything can be found below.
