Poor planter never stood a chance :)

by mwilliams on Tue Jul 28, 2020 2:52 pm

Just got the latest box (and one I might be most excited for yet!), really love the firmware the Clue shipped with to cycle through the live charting on all the sensors.

But living in NY, the thin plastic planter never stood a chance in this heat wave... I got it inside right off the truck and opened it but the plastic planter was pretty much completely crumpled and so flimsy from sitting in the back of a 100 degree truck.

If you want to hit the ground running, I'd suggest running out (safely!) for a nice little ceramic planter, re-cycling something else in your home (bottom half of a plastic soda bottle or something?).

Great box and seeing an Adabox land once again was a nice thing to see - hope everyone's safe and healthy. Happy hacking!

I was wondering about that! Might even try printing some kind of planter.

This is generally known and there's an info box about it here:

Is it showing up squished/wrinkled even beyond the suggested repair?

I really like the code it shipped with as well, I would love to get the source for it.

I watched yesterday's live unboxing, and John Park simply pushed the thing back into shape. It was pretty squershed.
I just ordered a Clue. Can the demo code be copied from the circuitpy memory?

Hallelujah!

If you put the board in bootloader mode, the file CURRENT.UF2 contains the current firmware. You can copy that file out and restore it later. To restore it, put the board back in bootloader mode and drag the UF2 file over.

You can rename it if you want to help remember what it is. To something like CLUE_ADABOX_DEMO.UF2, etc. It does *not* need to be named CURRENT.UF2 to restore ir.

Same can be done for any UF2 bootloader enabled board.

May I be the first to thank you, even before mine arrives? The source code and I shall be the best of friends, I'm sure.

Hallelujah!
