Ben Heck's Super Glue Gun: Scoping out the Autostand


Is Ben over-engineering the Super Glue Gun? Working on an idea from Felix, Ben prototypes the automatic deploying kickstand for the super glue gun build, and develops code for the ATTiny microcontroller for servo control. Though all is not as straightforward as it seems! Ben discovers the intricacies of the processor from the hardware's datasheets and ensures he's setting the correct bits to get the timing just right. Of course, it helps to sanity check it with an oscilloscope. Would you design this any differently? Let the team know over on the element14 Community.
