The Next Console City (on Tables)

Important lesson — Always feed goji! We keep ours well fed.

 

Ikea needs some real life demos of what their stuff can do. Hey set up in a store for a weekend it would be a hit! Nice that it’s down at kid level on those tables, would just need a barricade to keep the kids back a bit.

 

what are you using for playback of the station announcements? I just got some small speakers and a mini arduino sound board (like $2) that pays off a flash card. It can even take some simple io so I was thinking of a little sensor set up later. Little 2w amp board as well but may not be loud enough.

I once bought some cheap Bluetooth speakers from 8BitDo and use my old smart phones to press play when needed.

The cheap BT-speakers don't go to sleep mode after 10min without playback, not like more expensive speakers do.

Nice no wires! We use one of those to make goji roar and mess with with viewers at shows.

Updated my track plan to represent what I actually built ^^.

 

I added colour to distinguish the two lines. The blue line is elevated after the 180° turn.

 

Currently contemplating if I should make space for some parking tracks. I still have some #6 and Y- turnouts left over.
