Class V Software Logo

So first pass the buttons didn’t work. There could have been a couple possiblities. The Piper website had folks recommending unkinking the button leads so they would better connect to the breadboard.

We first got out the VOM from a way long time back (like high school for David) to see basically how they worked, then methodically checked the button, the leads coming out of breadboard and the lead as connected to the Pi. When that all checked out (really just after straightening the leads and being careful to insert well into the breadboard), they worked as expected!

So that’s the first of three buttons and just two more to go. But the kit also comes with some LEDs and smaller switches — I have no clue what’s next.

Robert still pronounces it “cool!” so I’m good.

Oh, and in the background? Pokemon battle helmet — of course.
