FreeSK8 System - Project Updates

We’ll be using this thread for posting announcements & releases on the upcoming FreeSK8 System.

Excited to share that the first small addition to the FreeSK8 family is now available & shipping, the FreeSK8 NRF52 BLE Module:

What’s FreeSK8? FreeSK8 is an open source system of hardware components that we will be releasing over the next few month, including the FreeSK8 Remote (OSRR 1.0), a Smart BMS, AS Switch, Robogotchi Datalogger NRF/BLE Module, LightShow Module, and NavCom GPS Module. We will be continuing to flesh out documentation & tutorials for these as we stage for beta testing.

Stay tuned to this thread specifically for future updates!

If I buy this magic thing does it come with stupid-proof instructions to make it unity-wand togetherness?

I will need to test it myself in order to give you a 100% confirmation, but it should work on Unity on fw5+

The setup would be identical to the Wand/nrf dongle in that case.

While these are based on a proven platform/firmware, it’s still best to consider any new hardware/software combinations ‘beta’.

We will have a good amount of documentation on all of this in the coming weeks/months.

Yeah I never figured out Trampa oblique instructions which were very heavy on the Vesc, simple not, I guess this maybe a factor in the amount of shelved wands lying about

We are using the Wand as one of the primary comparison devices for all A/B testing, so rest assured we can help flesh out documentation in that regard!

We’re also using the same pairing mechanism on our own remote, and @skate420 has made the pairing process a single button click on the main menu of the FreeSK8 app.

One remote to rule them all, yes precious.

So basically you’re selling heroin? If you were actually dealing drugs there would be a multi-buy discount, except that must be an impossibility in Shopify, shame :sleepy:

Thank you
