Thanks, IrieMars! I have the HDMI cable listed as part #13 up there, but I don’t have a photo because I haven’t bought mine yet — because I’m not sure how long a cable to get. I see a lot that look longer than I need. I don’t want to get one too short, what length would you recommend? Also, it looks like you purchased a mini-USB port connector in addition to the regular USB-A connectors, so you could wire it to the Pi and plug your Teensy in? If so, I completely missed this part both in your build and in Banjokazooie’s and will have to go back and add it to my list here.

EDIT: I accidentally said “micro-USB” in my first version of this post.

I have no idea why you call yourself a noob, you must have either OCD or a very meticulous job because your posts for this project are detailed and very thorough.

Cheers, all! This is my first ever electronics project. I hope maybe somebody else who is also a noob can follow along once I’m all done, hence the level of detail. I am encountering difficulty, however, figuring out how to incorporate a battery status indicator. I have inquired on another thread but no response yet — if anyone can help, please let me know!
