This is a revision of the previous 1978 “Heathkit” D&D Digital Dice Tower project. In this revision, I’ll attempt to simplify the build process, add some features, and subsequently update the list of components and source code.
The content I’ll be adding here assumes you’re at least familiar with the previous project. So if you haven’t already, check out the link in the paragraph above.
Just like the original project, this is based on a 1975 Bell & Howell Digital Mulitmeter.
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.
