Control Panel - First working Prototype
As I was learning, I'd already built the 4 transistor circuits, the 3 switch input circuits and the 2 analog gauge control circuits all on the Radio Shack breadboard. I decided it was time to see this thing in action and let my son play with it for a few days. I wired up the gauges and used some cat5 from each access panel to get the connections out the panel and up to the breadboard.
My son now knows the word "prototype".
