Coin-Operated Chumby Web App #hackfriday

Marty McGuire of the Baltimore Node Hackerspace shared this neat coin-operated Chumby hack. Interfacing a Chumby to a coin slot is pretty cool all by itself, but the Super Mario coin sound takes it to the next level. Well done, Baltimore Node!

About #hackfriday:

If you’ve been following me on Twitter or Google+ today, you’ll notice I’ve been pushing this thing called #hackfriday. It’s sort a counter-movement to Black Friday. Personally, I think the idea of camping out in a parking lot just to be granted the “privilege” of spending your own money is a little silly. While I have nothing against shopping or commerce, I find the compulsive herd mentality that develops around the Friday after Thanksgiving to be demoralizing. I much prefer to stay at home and make something or work on a project — I suspect many other people feel the same way. So, if you’ve spent the day working on something cool, I encourage you to post it up in the next few days on Twitter or Google+ with the tag #hackfriday.

I look forward to seeing what you’ve made!

Happy #hackfriday, everyone!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
