Hackaday editors Mike Szczys and Elliot Williams unpacked some great hacks from last week. We love to see the TIL311 – a retro display in a DIP package – that has been exquisitely recreated using SMD electronics and resin molding. You may never need to measure the diameter of your 3D printer filament continuously, but just in case there is a clever Hall-effect sensor mechanism to do it. We both admire the work in the FPGA space and this week we saw a RISC-V core built into the FPGA stack to run a version of Doom that was originally played on 486 computers. And we’re looking forward to the three-ring circus of technical acrobatics, which will land NASA’s Perseverance rover on the surface of Mars next week.
Take a look at the links below if you’d like to get involved, and as always, let us know what you think about this episode in the comments!
