This is of a demo of how you can make a super easy and cheep wireless control pendant for your EMC2 machine. All you need to do is install QtsixA and set up your controller as a mouse and keboard. You can map the hokeys custom to your machine.
This is a really handy hack! If you’ve ever tried to zero a workpiece and gotten tangled up in cables, this thing is a godsend. He mentions he uses it for manual milling too, which I can imagine is very useful, particularly for cutting reference faces.
Nice work, Darrell!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
