Worlds hardest jigsaw vs. puzzle machine (all white)

quote [ This project was so hard it almost broke me. ]

Lol, been doing a lot of jigsaw puzzles lately and my brain is constantly playing around with how I would automate it. Best not to, it seems. That way leads to madness.

If you're into schadenfreude, this is for you.

A Sealant Story

quote [ How caulk became a standard household building and maintenance staple. If you own a house, you probably have a caulking gun lying around. ]

I can solve that with some duct tape and some caulking

I Threw it Out and Started Over?! Optigon 2: Part 3: From Fear Through the Eyepiece of Madness

quote [ Tilted wearable? No. Invisible wearable? Yes. ]

Some quick googling has informed me that I've completely misremembered the design of the "monocle" display used in the movies hackers. Coulda sworn it was like a pirate's eyepatch. :(

G'day, I'm Leigh and I search for treasure all over the world in all kinds of ways. Scuba Diving, Metal Detecting or Magnet Fishing - if it's out there I'll find it!

Modules, Magnets, and Much More: The MiRage Mk3!

quote [ I'm building the ultimate hackable mechanical keyboard, and the printed circuit boards have reached their final form! Last time, I reimagined the design but introduced tons of design flaws. Today, I don't just fix them - I double down. I designed and assembled SIX prototype circuit boards for this episode. Help.

This is (hopefully) the first hotswap Choc AND MX board, with south-facing RGB LEDs and massively more. The MiRage's halves are now totally independent, meaning infinite flexibility in size and shape. Magnetic pogo pin connectors let you instantly reconfigure, and detachable modules let you add knobs, sliders, and displays to your keyboard. There's far more to come. ]

More DIY keyboard stuff from Voidstar Labs. I only understand a little over half of it, but it's pretty and shiny.

Making a DIY BMO to 3D Print and be SUPER CUTE

quote [ That's right, BMOctoprint LIVES! The build is complete!

It's taken many months, a lot of trial and error, and a whole lot of learning new skills, but my Raspberry Pi running the Octoprint 3D printing server shaped like BMO from Adventure Time is complete and fully functional! Check out all the amazing things she can do, what I did to get to this point, as well as how I created all the programming (using Python)! ]

I want one for my Octoprint server!
