scanlime040 – Test Jig Quick Look

I found these two test jigs for sale at a local business that was relocating. They would have been used as part of the quality assurance procedure for smart bike lights. Later we might go into more detail on the firmware, or repurpose the formidable hunks of metal for another project!

scanlime039 – Unboxing Cameras and LEDs, USB 3 and pre-UNIX

In my live streams I’ve been inviting you to send me new reverse engineering projects at my P.O. box. In these videos, I’ll introduce a few of the items I’ve been receiving, with a bit of the mystery preserved!

scanlime037 – Squishy Resistor Repair

These wire-wound resistors have seen better days, and my trusty Orion Delta printer from SeeMeCNC needs a replacement heater. More recent printer designs use cartridge heaters, but this’ll be an oldschool repair with fresh resistors and silicone goop. After the repair, I’ll do a test print with time lapse!

This repair is following the instructional video from SeeMeCNC.

scanlime036 – DaveCAD Sticky Printer

Some of you may know about a fancy CAD package used by a certain popular electronics rambler on utube, and I wanted a piece of that sweet handwritten design. Hanging with Tuco Crew one night, the tiger and I put this crack together. Milled linoleum printing block, 3D printed alignment jig, and as many copies of DaveCAD as we can eat.

scanlime035 – Lite2Sound BC

Is there a synthesizer in your LED, or a song in the shadows? Are your lights quiet or do they roar? This surface mount soldering kit from Boldport and Rare Waves will help you hear the audio-frequency signals that hitch a ride on any light source, whether it’s modulated LEDs or the shadow of fluttering leaves.

scanlime034 – Tiny Oven Kit

This cute 3D soldering kit makes for a chill build video. The package comes our way as a crowdfunding reward, from pitching in to help Signal Ditch buy a reflow oven. Now we can all enjoy the sights and sounds of the build, but sadly I can’t share the sweet epoxy fumes. (Please do not breathe the epoxy.)

scanlime033 – Robot Odyssey Full Playthrough

Is this a YouTube first, a full play of the whole game? It’s a classic that many have lost patience for, including my childhood self. It’s like if Atari 2600 Adventure were full of digital logic puzzles. Let’s do this, play through from start to finish, and test the new WebAssembly port I’ve been making!

scanlime032 – Early Flyer View

Tuco Flyer is actually flying now, so let’s see what it can do! This is a high-level update on where the project is at and what the next steps are. And cat! Lots of Tuco the cat.

This project is open source hardware and software, you can get the code and designs on GitHub.

scanlime031 – Zoom H2

Just a quick video as I keep the equipment running: my Zoom H2 microphone was damaged thanks to some leaky batteries, but a brush and some Deoxit and isopropanol help me get it running again.
