Mad Eye Moody v2 with Wifi

My Mad-Eye Moody eye has worked pretty well for the past year and has gone to several costume parties where it always catches people by surprise. That’s a fun moment, hearing people around you go “OMG it moved”, but I never felt like the eye itself was interactive enough. It just moved at random, no…

No Face

I’m trying something a little different this time and made a build video. I found the mask on thingiverse and printed it at 200% X&Y and only 100% Z to make it larger but flat. Enjoy!

Deku Scrub

I’m slowly building up a collection of video game masks in our game room, but the Deku mask is destined for our dinning room opposite Majora’s mask.  I found this STL on My Mini Factory and had to modify it just a tad to get it to print in PETG without supports, mostly just thickening…

Using Fusion 360’s Calibrate Canvas to design from a photo

My wife works with children that have multiple, severe disabilities in an area that is pressed pretty hard for funding. Every now and then she and I will collaborate on a part or a tool to  help her and the kids she serves along the way.  A few weeks ago she showed me this tablet…

The answer is yes.   Using PiBakery once again, this recipe will configure the pi as a wireless client simultaneously configure the pi as…

CNCed companion cube

I’ve recently gotten my Shapeoko 3 up and running and I’ve been banging two rocks together trying to learn Fusion 360 and CAM.  I decided that the best way to do that was to just jump in and design something that I really would like to have and then cut it out.  After about 400…

Pi based security system

The Makerspace I’m a part of needed a security camera for insurance purposes.  Being a makerspace, we immediately over complicated things by deciding  to create our own system using a raspberry pi based DVR and some FOSCAMs.  The FOSCAMs became a problem that we had to limp through while we looked to stabilize our other…

Majora’s Mask

According to ZeldaDungeon.net, Majora’s Mask is an ancient relic used in the past by a now vanished tribe for hexing rituals. The Mask is able to bestow great power, but also great evil, upon its wearer, and was thus sealed away out of fear. I don’t have a howto for this one, just a serious of…
