Wow, over a year since I did anything on my blog!! WTF!! Anyways, a load has happened since last I was, but now to get back into it. Basically everything on the site has been on hold since last January, life got in the way, but I’m back now. Couple of things I will be addressing in the near future,
3D Printing… when I first stumbled upon it, I had that URGE. MUST HAVE ONE! So I waited til the pricing and technology that supported it was less geek and became more mainstream. My current 3D printer has been great in a number of different ways, namely the learning process, the design, the concepts and the software it runs on.
So whiling away some time during the summer, I got to watching the 10m Air Rifle Target event. The shooting itself was inordinately boring, I’m sorry folks that love to watch it… but for me it was worse than watching someone else watching paint dry. BUT something did pique my interest, and that was the targeting system. I’ve spent the
I don’t remember a time in my life where fire arms and shooting haven’t played a part in my life. My childhood in the ’70’s as an Army kid meant that I was immersed in the knowledge that they existed, albeit that they were there for a reason. A lot of my memories included some form of fire arms, including
So I got some brick dust on my Pebble Time Steel yesterday, not a problem, it’s proofed to 5 ATM (so about 50m) give it a rinse in some water… and there’s bloody water in the screen!!!! Leaked dammit! So, I get in touch with Pebble’s support, and frankly they were superb. All the details sorted within a few
Bit of a delay on new posts… it’s been the Summer, yaaaaaay! And on the whole our Summer here in the North East (UK) has been pretty good. Not too shabby all in all. So I thought I’d take a bit of time to reflect on an amazing bit of software written for various devices that I find myself using again
There’s a few ways to do a bit of FPV – First Person View. Essentially, a camera is mounted on whatever you’re controlling remotely, then the video signal sent back to you and shown on a screen to give you the experience of piloting whatever it is that you’re flying / driving / whatever. So the price of goggles has
You’re probably here because you followed an outdated link. I’d love to be able to support this mod, however, I no longer have the time to deal with queries regarding the mod. The build videos are still available on my YouTube channel, left there for historical purposes for you, however this is the step by step.
I had a couple of old laptop batteries knocking about for a few years, the laptops long gone (except a couple of bits that I’ve already managed to keep – a screen : the subject of a future mod in particular). I’d been intending stripping the batteries down for a while to harvest the individual cells out, and finally got
I bought an Eken H9 4K Ultra HD action camera from GearBest a little while ago. I never intended to use it as a full blown action camera as I have a GoPro 3 for that side of stuff. I bought it to use for activities where I didn’t mind if it got totally trashed. On my Quadcopter, to use
