• It looks like the Pixl.js did get damaged.
    I threw the badge and left for my conference and here I am and the system boots up. the ESP8266 flashes once quickly blue (so it has power) and then a second later blinks a couple of times (as if it's connecting and retrieving information) and then just stops and never flashes again

    and I get "Uncaught no 'ready' after AT+RST"

    so it means the board doesn't reply. or it's not communicating the information back to the pixl.js

    I measure the power on the Vcc and ground and I get 3.2 while it's booting up and then zero. (like the pixl.js has turned it off or grounded it.

    any advice?
