Hackaday Badge Nyan Cat Wrap Up

With just two minor bugs in Nyan Cat both centered around power management, I’m content to leave them for later (if ever.) And it’s not like I have any way to patch all the badges out there… we don’t exactly have a badge counterpart to Windows Update. I’m going to finish documenting this project and move on to the next.

The first item is to create a page on Hackaday.io about this project. I’ve had several projects where I documented in parallel on Hackaday.io and here, but Nyan Cat was a rush job and I couldn’t spare the time. That project page will focus on the Nyan Cat specifically, so for example it won’t have the blog entries about exploring hardware features of the Belgrade badge.

The second item is to dip my toes in YouTube video content creation. I’m setting low expectations on my first effort. A short script was written beforehand but I still stumble over a few words and the delivery is a bit wooden. The camera is fixed and looking straight down at the badge. The biggest problem turned out to be lighting, I have not yet figured out the camera settings required to have it do a faithful translation of colors on screen. (I had the exact same problem a year ago.)

It’s not great, but the best way to get better is to learn by doing!
