scanlime:019 / Gimbal SDI Camera Mod

This is a mechanical and electrical modification to the Feiyu Mini3D 3-axis brushless gimbal, so it can hold a Crazyfire HZ-100P SDI camera and LIDAR-Lite distance sensor. Now I can use this small and inexpensive gimbal for the new live streaming cat robot!

scanlime:016 / Shiny Blue Vacuum Fluorescent Pole Thing

I’ve been streaming lots of live forward and reverse engineering lately, and I’m about to start editing some of the recent work into a multi-part series of videos! But this little self-contained project had been sitting partially-edited in my queue so long, I had to give it the finish it needed.

Here we have a retrospective look at an old Vacuum Fluorescent Display project, and a re-make into something new using 3D printing and magnets.
