TEST-O: The Continuity and Diode Test Robot Addon 

A robot buddy with RGB eyes that can test circuits for continuity, and even test diodes and LEDs.

A functional addon with potential use after the conference! 

Probe wire colors are random. Most are Red/Black (pictured) or White/Green.

Code and instructions will be released during the first day of Hackaday Supercon 7.

This addon is either powered by a badge supporting the GAT standard (4- or 6-pin, compatible with SAO), or CR2032 coin cell.

Originally released for Hackaday Supercon 7 in 2023.
