First animation tests of the CREATURE video, it consists of two scenes as you can see. There is still much to fix and improve until we reach the final result.
On the other hand, to develop and test the firmware on my workbench, I have mounted everything on a wooden table, holding the plates with screws and leaving all the cables connected. I have also added two L-brackets that hold a DMD upright. In this table is the original CPU, the Holomodsp board connected to the CPU, the DMD controller board, and my CPU TEST board to verify with LEDs the status of all the lamps, flashers, motors and bumpers of the game board.
The whole set is very compact and ready to use, so I don't waste time connecting plates and keeping everything loose and messy on the work table.
I also mounted a second Holomodsp board to install it together with the entire kit, permanently on my Creature machine. The development and first tests I always do on my desk, it is much more comfortable, I have the computer there and I can program and verify the firmware. Then I can bring the new firmware to the machine kit with micro SD cards, one for the Holomodsp board and one for the Raspberry.
