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.

scanlime030 – Why Reverse a Gimbal

Why do all this gimbal reversing? It works so nicely now, and I didn’t need to design the whole thing from scratch!

scanlime:020 – TSG95 Color Bar Generator Teardown

Little teardown and exploration of an old bit of NTSC / PAL television test equipment, the Tektronix TSG 95. We’ll poke around with the oscilloscope and analog TV, and we even stumble on some helpful documentation.

scanlime:017 / Boldport #3, Cordwood Puzzle

Assembling the Cordwood Puzzle, an electronics kit from the Boldport Club subscription service. It’s a close look at a relaxing build with a vintage look and delightfully unique design. Check out Saar’s work: https://www.boldport.com/

This video was filmed in front of a live Internet audience. Stream archives:

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

scanlime:008 / Boldport #1 – Pease

I jumped at the opportunity to get hardware in the mail from another like-minded art hacker. In this video I’ll unbox the kit, assemble it delicately, and finally I’ll have to make some squiggles and beeps with it.
