Haha – yea i always get that question.
It’s a true #learning project meaning it doesn’t have direct application. All the parts and systems I’m using are for the purposes of learning. So the set up of the project allows you to successfully learn DC motor control in a pretty sophisticated way without doing a project that takes months and months to build (eg, a drone from scratch), and yet the same core facets are being learned. So it’s pure learning.
