“Latest Project: my MCP”. Stephanie writes –

Still can’t leave well enough alone. A few weeks ago after the IoTPrinter was unveiled (to that very catchy tune!) I decided I needed to add that functionality to my Master Control Project. I just went with the thermal printer starter pack as I didn’t need the IoTP enclosure or button.

Incorporating the Gutenbird sketch into my existing MCP sketch wasn’t too difficult, though I did make some changes here and there, to streamline things down a little. Also, I opted not to use the Adafruit Thermal library, partially since I’m using a hardware serial port on the Mega instead of a software serial port. Oh and I added a bit of code so that the lastId is saved in eeprom so it will survive reboots (as I’m never finished tinkering with this thing!).

…Thanks Adafruit for the inspiration and providing all the cool toys & ideas!


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.
