A Cool 3DoT Application From a Tester

by Jaap de Dood

Hey everyone! We’re off to a great start so far. We have some shield updates coming in the next few weeks, and probably also a creator AMA at the end of the month.

The best thing about projects like the 3DoT board is seeing what people create with it. I thought we’d share some of that this week. One tester who got an early version of the board has developed a FWD car chassis, and is building a 3D-printed model of a time-traveling car from a certain movie on top of it.

Check out these images of the design process and some footage of the working chassis:

Oh yeah, they’re also adding a supercapacitor to deliver a 12V "turbo" to the motor driver power net.
