Prusa MK3S ~ Stop Button
This was a one day build. I leave my printer running unattended and I know that others in my home would have trouble finding the reset button or off switch if/when something went wrong. Solution, add a big friendly stop button. I have built several arcade machines over the years, so I had plenty of control panel buttons. This is a 46mm 12V red button. I pulled apart the switch and swapped the built in resistor to be 100 ohms, so I could run from 5V. Prusa’s 3D printers are open source. Even better, they design their 3D printed parts using openscad. My favorite 3D CAD program. https://github.com/prusa3d/Original-Prusa-i3/tree/MK3S I grabbed…
Wyze Camera – Mini Butterbot – Rick & Morty
New baby at home so I am getting some use out of an old IP camera I placed in the nursery. My wife and I enjoyed it so much, I looked into adding a second. What I found was so cute, I 3D printed some arms and gave some wire touches. The IP camera I was using was a Foscam FI8910W with a resolution of 640*480px, full pan/tilt, and 3rd party app compatibility. Old enough that it has no cloud features and if you want to access remotly, you better know how to add exceptions to your firewall. Simply typing ip camera into amazon, the first non-sponsored result turned out…
Mini NES Build w/ Functioning Cartridge Loader
This is a summary post about my Mini NES build. This project is a derivative of the original efforts of DaftMike. I used his 3D print files and basic source code, then reverse engineered the circuit from his Electronics Kit that allows the Raspberry Pi to talk to a NFC reader and an Arduino to control power. Improving on the design with added features such as Fan Control and NFC Writing. While also fixing bugs including lost Controller Configuration, Bad Power, and allowing Out of Order Assembly. If you are interested in making one of these, you can checkout my build instructions here: Complete Guide: How to make a Mini NES~!
