Tag Archives: Lion Shorting

because webmonkees: really really messing with a Zoomer Chimp with like chips and wires and stuff but its funny when they fall over

It’s an amazing bit of technology. This particular example was acquired on the cheap due to misalignment of the USB interface and a possible problem with the charging system or battery.

LITHIUM ION BATTERIES (LiON)ARE HAZARDOUS

(SEE ELSEWHERE from better knowing peoples)

LIONS DO NOT USUALLY CONTAIN  BATTERIES

BUT ARE ALSO HAZARDOUS IF MISHANDLED OR SHORTED

HAVE  VENTILATION, A BUCKET OR OTHER PANIC METHODS HANDY.

DO NOT PUT BUCKET ON HEAD.

(That concludes the safety precaution to cover the rest of it. Charging system is not relevant to the task at hand, but of course a normal one from the store should have all that working right unless you dropped it far.

DO NOT DROP FAR

I said that’s enough with the safety disclaimers. Be safe.)

um, so what do we have here. First off a examination of the board reveals a shiny shiny precious ring of POO wait what POI.. something fishy.. VCC GND oh I know those. Not energizing circuit until

ALWAYS ASSUME A BATTERY HAS A CHARGE UNLESS WELL YOU KNOW IT DONT.

sorry, we’ll try to keep it to just here at the start so later when people google end up on page 3 with no warnings about DO NOT FOLD SPINDLE OR MUTILATE THE LiON unless your’e Swedish and have a hydraulic press and plenty of ventilation and panic buckets.

More precious leads MISO, now I want to order takeout, MISI, a female deer, SCK,  which some might say that graphic monkey head thing as the cover image is, but in this case it’s serial clock. Then and an intruiguing ACC and AGND which, true story, due to the screen print being overlapped on the leads, I was initially looking for an

AGNU protocol as one does.

THE AGNU PROTOCOL IS NOT RELEVANT BUT FUNNY TO SOMEBODY. Be afraid.

We apologize if any dismembered robot parts make anyone squeamish, but that’s what happens when anthropomorphous entities are a semblance to us.
