Building An RC Car

September 5, 2022 - Alex Roland

My son loves helping me with projects, whether it is changing the brakes on our car or integrating the finder device into the remote. He asked me one day if he could have an RC car and if we could build it together. I loved the idea and thought it would be a great learning project for both of us. Read on to follow us during this journey! Keep in mind this project is ongoing so some content may be missing or take awhile to show up as we progress.

Finding The Remote

September 2, 2022 - Alex Roland

We've all lost the TV remote at least a couple times. Unfortunately it is a frequent issue in my household ever since my 4 year old started to use the remote to put Cocomelon on. It is almost a nightly routine when he goes to bed and we ask him where the remote is. His usual response is "I don't know", so we have to spend the next 20 minutes looking for it. We thought it would be a good idea to get one of those key/remote finder devices, but the one I ordered was slightly too big for the Firestick remote. So, I thought why not take the finder device and the remote apart and find out if we can integrate them together. Below I talk about the journey to integrate them and show pictures of the process!
