Entering PiWars 2015

We had such a good time at PiWars last year that we’ve decided to enter again this year.  The application is in – now the nervous wait to see if we will be accepted.

In the meantime, we’ve been brainstorming approaches to the various events.  The Skittles event interests me particularly 🙂

On the hardware side, we’ve got a couple of stepper motors and a plywood baseboard screwed together as a test bed (we’d like to see if the motors are powerful and controllable enough for what we have in mind).

We’re planning to blog about it here – its going to be an interesting challenge writing about the journey without giving too much away!
