2015 Community Hall of Fame Projects

#2015 Community Hall of Fame Projects

What inspired YOU in 2015?

We’re finishing 2015 with our biggest design challenge yet! As we look forward to blasting off into the Bitosphere with all our #Bitwars themed projects, let’s chat with the people and projects that have inspired us in 2015 (technically a year starting in Dec, 2014).

If I mention your name, please take a bow (ahem, say “hi”). We’d love to hear about how you are doing recently and what’s going on with you. Can you tell us about your next project! Pssst — what are you making for the #Bitwars contest?

Finally, everyone, let’s toss some ideas around about how the Community can more directly select the weekly Community Hall of Fame projects. Should it be done with hearts and comments on the project page? Should Bitsters nominate projects here on the forum? What are your ideas? Comment below! :slight_smile:

OK, let’s start the review and chat about projects & ideas! :smile:

Hi Jude @JackANDJude,
First I’ll take a bow :smile:

I am still very enthousiastic about Littlebits, I really love working on your challenging projects and sharing my knowledge on the forum… This year it became one of my prime hobbies. :joy:
It is so easy to add technology to anything using littlebits and it always results in so many wonderful constructions.
As you have seen I made a hybrid lost-in-space Darth Vader for the Bitwars contest…

For 2016 I am thinking about the following project ideas:
. a music instrument with strings and percussion using the synth bits
. make funny unexpected sounds with the synth bits
. a mysterious marble machine using a lot of small steel marbles
. sensors for various applications. I recently purchased an Arduino sensor addition set so experimenting becomes very easy.
. a laser light picture painting machine
. a droplet photographing setup with laser light
. NFC integration
. using an LCD character screen
. applications for the AC power switch (EU version)
. find an application for the sequencer
:scream: :scream: :scream: :scream: :scream:

I think the selection of projects for the hall of fame should be in the hands of the littlebits team as it is. They can use their own selection criteria unbiased. :sunglasses:

@alexpikkert NFC integration…


Hi Liza @lizabits,
With the help of six of the seven dwarfs it will be a success!
But I am not the first one thinking about NFC, Philip Verbeek submitted a bitlab project a few months ago…
I do not know what happened with it… :flushed:

Hi JackandJude
I don’t see anywhere for me to comment on my entry to takeabow. There’s no “reply” etc on my entry :frowning: Can you point me at some relevant instructions?

Welcome to the forum @raygeeknyc! Replying to whoever mentioned you (just like you did here) is exactly how to do it! :+1::grinning:

Thanks but I want to to add a comment to your listing of my project, Jak the Magic Dragon, in this page. I don’t see anyplace for me to do that on the pic of the project. I see others have comment threads under their listing. It says in your post at the top of the page that if you mention me by name, I’ll be able to reply, but I can only reply “down here”
