The duh factor

So, today I’ve spent several hours with the design team deciding what we want our dancing mannequins to be.

I’ll get to that in a minute or two.

Meanwhile, I’ve been uncrating and sorting the parts for the Arduino kit, starting to wire up the PIR/ultrasonic sensor array for controlling the dancing mannequins.

Wired up everything just fine.

Wrote some code in the Arduino programming environment and compiled just fine.

One small problem — couldn’t program the Arduino Uno.

Enter the duh factor — I had chosen the wrong COM port.

Sometimes the simplest details will stop progress.

Thanks to the dude N. Fletch, the problem, avrdude stk500_getsync(): not in sync resp=0x30 error for Arduino Uno, was fixed!

A shoutout to RobotGrrl, Michael Overstreet and others at the Robot Hacks community for their help and encouragement!
