FK2 Demo Video With Custom PCB

I've been able to work on this project in short bursts, and have finally been able to test the new PCB.  Currently I've got it set up to run through a series of automated tests to prove that it can execute all the required functions.

The following keystrokes are implemented:

LEFT (page turn)
RIGHT (page turn)

With these six commands, the user can select books, turn pages, and return to the main menu to select another book.

Here's a short video where you can see it run:

From here, all that remains is attaching some simple cables to each button so it can be easily plugged into the appropriate jack on the board, then attaching everything to the new wooden stand I created a couple weeks ago.

We're getting there!


  1. Hello,

    I can't find any contact info in the site so forgive me for using the comment section. I'm Algen, I work with engineering website EEWeb and would love to have your website featured as a site of the day on EEWeb. Is this of interest to you?

    Hope to hear from you soon.



    1. I'd be honored! Though the content is quite old, the project itself is still pretty interesting.

      You can reach me at if you have any further questions.
