LEGO Telegraph Machine and Printer

Incredible project + write-up from Jason Allemann of JK Brickworks.

For that I added a touch sensor, essentially turning it into a telegraph machine, so that you can tap out a sequence of letters using Morse Code which it will then print.

I put together building instructions for it, which you can find along with the program file and more detailed information about how it works, down below.
