I finally used Eagle to whip up my first PCB. I used OSHPark for the fabrication and it came out awesome. It’s going to be going into a revamp of the Pi Thermal Cam project that I did back in November 2017.

A shield for Adafruit Feather boards with buttons and a LED matrix display, for simple games.
Carlos Vadillo and Bx Dawes created the GlowSaber project to help kids in Alameda learn about physics, engineering and programming:
Building the GlowSaber main board
All the logic, sound and light effects of the GlowSaber are performed by a small microprocessor board. In this tutorial I will explain, step by step how to put together the main board of a GlowSaber.
One premise that I had while designing the GlowSaber was that I should be able to build all of it with tools that I already have. That limited the materials I could choose to those that I could cut, drill and glue with just the basic tools:
How to use a potentiometer to change the behavior
cvadillo has shared the board on OSH Park:

With 4 of HP QDSP-6064 bubble displays in a drawer I felt ready to do something with them and the “Clocks for Social Good” – call on hackaday.com finally got me going
The design files are available on GitHub:
The Teensy 3 and Teensy LC have several pins that can be used as capacitive touch inputs. I designed this board in KiCad to experiment with cap touch buttons:
I used the CAPSENSE_CIRCLE component and footprint from the Wickerlib KiCad library to create the cap touch buttons:
Bill of Materials:
I created this board in KiCad to try out a SHARP memory display with the Teensy LC:
