I'm finishing up the S-tank, so it's time to move on. I think I'll crack open both the BoP and the B9 kits, and examine them more closely with an eye towards illuminating them. The BoP will be an easier circuit, and I'm still thinking of incorporating a Pi or Arduino on the B9; I also want to get the aftermarket PE and glass dome. I'll post an album for each kit opening. It's not my usual SOP, but I may work both in parallel, sorting out the technical details on the B9 while getting the BoP done.
In a perfect scenario, the B9 would respond to nearby movement with a classic "Danger Will Robinson!" phrase or some such audio clip(s), and the chest LED light in sync with the syllables, as in the show. Needless to say, if any of these high hopes threaten to take the fun out of it then it's path-of-least-resistance. Feedback is welcome; should I aim high, or be content with minimizing the light and sound show with a more conventional build?
Time make dinner and then open a box (or two). Best to All.
