I made the “blocks” that the Raspberry Pi Foundation used for this year’s Maker Faire in New York. Sort of a retro science fair kind of vibe. I had major deja vu making these, as a kid I used to hammer nails into blocks and wire up simple circuits. I’ve come full circle.
Thanks for the project Matt.
Been meaning to make a Tesla Valve for a long time. It still amazes me that this works with no moving parts.
The Sleeping Machine was one of my favorite experiments to come out of the 100 Days of Making class I took part in. It’s a simple crank mechanism made of laser cut acrylic, attached to a DC motor gear box.
Once again Donald Bell has been kind enough to mention a project of mine in his weekly Maker Update.
Day 37: Flick Face. Perf board, LEDs, coin cell battery, battery holder, resistors, hookup wire, and springs. I made some whisker switches using the springs from ball point pens I got at the bank. The circuit kind of looks like a face and you get the best results when you flick the board.
Finally, finished an idea I’ve had kicking around for a little while. I vacuum formed some styrene over a stepper motor circuit board, to be a quick custom project enclosure.
I formed it directly over the circuit board. After a little trimming and sanding, the cover fits great.
