Propellor :- "Interactive Roller Experience Begins" Part 1

So the Build has Started.........

My first real dive into "Spin" Processing.......... using an "EasyProp" propellor board........

Its been an interesting week learning how to setup input and output digitals , also setting up the Monkey-tasking was a bonus (i just love MT now - sorry Arduino :-)

It was also a simple task to set up the Video output to my Dispaly Gui that will fit onto my bike.

My brain hurts from trying to understand the time_ing and crystal settings and multiplyer constants.....

.....however the results are positive and my system is able to time (in milliseconds) the wheel rotations consistantly, bit more maths and the start of the basic speedo is set........then the interactive fun can begin.

Note to myself (in case i forget) :- Your bike can move left-right 30cm safely ---make an accuracy game that means you get points for riding\staying exatly in the middle of the rollers .... OMG that is a cool game in itself , use a sharp distance probe to monitor wheel from the side....easy....
