I opened the 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 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 protocol.


I'm so proud that our good friend Mark Louise is exposing his paintings in Tokyo Japan. So if you happen to be in neighborhood pay him a visit ;-).


Seen last Sunday on the Dutch Design Week (). The 3D Rotoprinter a design from Jonas Duteloff. One rotary axis and a cylinder as starting point. Excellent idea from Jonas.

Had a wonderful day at the last day of the Dutch Design Week (). 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.

This how the business card that I made for my wife came of the printer (after a couple of iterations). It just needs a little bit of cleaning. I used these two colors to mimic the default terminal view. To change the filament I used the M25 command in the GCode.

Idea for a 3d printed business card for my wife made in OpenSCAD. Just need to think of a text that the binary code translates to.
