-The launch m0dul enables the r0ket to launch rockets (fireworks). SS3 is used as GPIO to switch a relay using a NPN transisor, the relay switches 12V to a 2 Ohms reistor (11W) + heating wire (cut from an old hot air gun) which starts glowing (using about 3 Amps) and ignites the rocket. Here a video of the beta version (using hackerbus instead of m0dulbus and normal wire+matchstick instead of the heating wire) in action: http://​vimeo.com/​34415508+The launch m0dul enables the r0ket to launch rockets (fireworks).

-SS3 was chosen because it seems to be low by default currently - but be careful, if that's not the case your rocket might launch while plugging in the m0dul already... Best pratice ​should be to connect 12V supply and insert the rocket only in safe launch locations - or even better, not use this m0dul at all...+SS3 was chosen because it seems to be low by default currently - but be careful, if that's not the case your rocket might launch while plugging in the m0dul already...

 For the next version I plan to use an i2c gpio chip to be able to connect several launch units. There'​s now about 1 year of time to finish that project. And add some wireless launch function using a second r0ket... For the next version I plan to use an i2c gpio chip to be able to connect several launch units.
