Long-form Lockdown Project: Wired and Boxed

Long-form Lockdown Project: Wired and Boxed

That silly thing I was working on? Well, my extra buttons and LED holders and a step drill bit and a cheap box arrived (thanks, RS and eBay, especially RS for having a vast range of boxes that you can filter by dimensions) and so I got out my soldering iron and wired it all together in a more permanent form:

So. Now I have a little box, fetchingly 1980s-looking (well, that was when I learned to solder) that has a button I can push to play a random album from Spotify on my Echo, and also two spare buttons for who-knows-what future purpose?

The finished box with three red buttons and three red LEDs.

It was nice to be making stuff again, even if it’s fairly simple stuff in this case. And at least it was a few evenings where I wasn’t just watching telly and trying to forget about being in lockdown…
