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.

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.

scanlime:014 / Boldport #2 – Superhero

Finally, another Boldport video! This time a short music video based on the Engineer Superhero kit, assembled in original form and in a variant that includes a coin cell to power the LED and a piezo button to charge the 2N7000 MOSFET gate and make the LED glow for a while.

The sound track was something I made specifically for this vid; I put it on soundcloud too: https://soundcloud.com/scanlime/metal-piranha
