In 2013 Fall, I bought a TFT LCD Screen for my Arduino Uno (r3), in order to increase the level of fun I get from electronics. Especially after EE203 course, it is fun to play with something that works without making you crazy at the end of the day (check this hotel-safe circuit, that I built for course project. Painful hours.).
I got rid of all of the cables of my hotel safe project that were attached to the breadboard. By looking this schema, I connected my TFT LCD Screen to my Arduino Uno. I tested it with TFTDisplayText example. At 2:00 AM, with an unknown inspiration, I put a small challenge to myself to make the game Pong playable throughout the serial port.
For the code you can get it from this gist. Have fun with electronics at last. 🙂
It is maybe the strange year, the year 2013. The second semester I found myself very tired about lessons, club duties etc. At the end of the semester, the activity that I wanted to do the most was going bed for whole day.(maybe a month :P)
My cousin, Onur went to Kalmar, Sweden with Erasmus Student Exchange. He was there for approx. 8 months. Every time when I talked with him, he wanted me to come there and make me stay there for a week or so. When days became closer to holiday, he wanted to make a trip all around the Europe with his parents etc.
These are the stations and cities that we visited during 15 days:
