Here is a 3D Printed half scale mount for the system computer on the machines I work on at work. We never used it, but I always wondered what it would look like if we did make one. So having a 3D printer, I printed one. I am quite satisfied with this design and I may use it for myself.
Well, I’m not big and buff and I certainly am not a crossbow marksman. So how do I plan to survive the Apocalypse? My plan is better than trading bottle caps. I can make Beer.
There are times that I need to reprogram an embedded system. Usually I have to crack open the laptop, a serial communication device, and hook everything up just to download a new or updated program into the device.
And if anything goes wrong its catastrophic!
I was think of making a device that could to the same thing but was totally self contained; rechargeable battery, built in serial communication device, and storage (Flash RAM) all in a USB Stick format.
At the moment, it is mostly working hardware and the operating system is setup as a hardware test rather than a user friendly operating system.
Here is a few photos of the start of this project;
Here is my take on a Cryptex. I enjoyed designing and building this puzzle box. As you rotate the rings, they will ‘click’ into place. And it is built well enough that if you lost your code-word, it would take some effort to open this box.
Having to carry several SD Cards is usually no big deal but I don’t really have a good place to put them in my backpack. And being kinda cheap, I didn’t want to buy a SD Card case so I designed one and 3D print it.
I needed a place to put my keyboard out of the way; so I designed a keyboard holder and a mouse holder. Now I can hang my keyboard and mouse on my cabinet door to clear up some desk space.
This is a video that I took while looking at adding Power Ups to Box Runner.
Here is the preview video from Box Runner, my first publicly available game.
