Speed Dial

Speed Dial is like a mood barometer that you share with a friend or family member. Move the pointer to indicate your choice from a set of options, and your partner can respond with theirs. Speed Dial devices are connected in pairs. To use them, agree on a dial backing with your partner to mount on your devices. Then use the capacitive touch controller to select one of the options, your choice will be sent over the internet and your partner’s device will point to the same option. You can change your dials to play with new options and keep things fresh. What will your Speed Dials look like? Different dials give different options -- use one of ours or make your own, you can be as serious or silly as you want.

Servos moving randomly and trying to reset?

My two boards are connected (tested via the boot button), but when sending input via the capacitive touch, about 50% of the time, the servos will just moving from 0⁰ to 180⁰ and back again, over and over, until they decide to stop, and then accept no input for about 20 seconds, and then reconnect (three blue flashes). Then, the device which I was using won't accept any input, and i have to send a message from the other device.

When they do work (touch steps the motor about 30⁰) when it gets to the 0⁰ position, the servo is trying to go further (can hear the motor whining/attempting to go further).

I've flashed the boards a couple of times - does it sound like there's an issue? Anyone with any suggestions?


Answer this question I have this problem too

Hi Matthew,

Thanks for getting in touch.

It sounds like it could be a few issues. The first issue with reconnecting could be a wifi connection issue. To test this, you could move the devices close to your wifi router and continue your testing.

The second issue of servo noise could be an issue with damaged/faulty servos.

Hope this helps.
