I’m not really a fan of the “My Little Pony” TV series, but this video is an amazing demo for how well the LED’s manage to track the image on the screen.
After getting the coin acceptor to work, I wanted to completely rewrite my software. Prior to this the software didn’t look good at all, didn’t support LCD screens or logging. In order to fix these limitations I wrote “Arcade coin control ultimate”. Awesome name, right? 😀
Initial hardware testing of the coin acceptor I intended to use with my Omega project. Wrote a small piece of software that sends keystrokes to specified processes once a coin is inserted and accepted. I’m sorry for the terrible audio-quality, I’ll make sure use a better microphone in future videos.
Everything started when I found a coin acceptor on eBay but had no idea what to use it for. I normally try to find excuses to buy stuff I don’t need. 🙂 As for the coin acceptor, I tried to figure out what to use it for… I just loved the device itself, being able to collect coins and programmed it to potentially do a lot of cool stuff. After a lot of thinking I came up with the only sensible thing to do… build an arcade! 😀
