Tomorrow is a big day as my son will be demonstrating his prototype that collects disposable beer cups. The sensor to count the cups works great, that's a relief.
Here is link to a previous toot on this project.
Helping my son buillding the prototype to collect disposable beer cups that we designed earlier in #Solvespace. We still need to build-in the Seeeduino and we definately need another sensor. What a stupid idea it was to use the sonic sensor. 😅

A design made in the #Solvespace 3DCAD program for a prototype that my son is making for school. It will be a playful system for disposable cups.
Solvespace is just perfect for these kind of assemblies. Fast, easy to work with. Making 3DCAD an enjoyable experience.
Learned something today about tangled filament on the spool. Don't you hust hate it when a print comes out like this. I always thought this was due to cross-winding when the filament was initially spooled. I was wrong. It's because incorrect storage and use of the filament spool.
A mount I designed in #OpenSCAD for my Dayton Audio amplifier board. With the rose I'm trying to give a nice touch to an otherwise dull design.
I opened the #Pebble Watch Black today. Let's see if I can replace the battery.
A couple of years ago I made two amplifiers for my sons. Simple projects but I still love the wooden enclosures that I made. Now my youngest son wants me to add bluetooth and a battery which is a nice challenge to improve the simple designs. So last night I opened his enclosure to take a look at the components. The amplifier is a Sure Electronics AA-AB32131 while the speakers are Visatons FRS-8. Any suggestions for a replacement amplifier with integrated bluetooth?
Finally had the time to tinker a bit with the #p2p #Beaker Browser. Beaker not only enables you to make your own p2p projects but it's also very easy to modify existing projects and make them your own. I made a very simple website but the Beaker browser is needed to visit because of the #dat protocol.
Had a wonderful day at the last day of the Dutch Design Week (#DDW). So much creativity packed together. Saw many new solutions to prevent pollution and recycling like this bag of Mycotex, a fabric made from micelium, the vegetative part of a fungus.
