Two new projects in the works

Two fun projects that I'm waiting on some parts for.  Hopefully I can start going full steam ahead this weekend. 

The first another Guitar for the Guitar town charity auction.  It will be similar to last year with a led VU meter embeded into the guitar but I plan on having an amp included inthe guitar so you can just connect your speakers and ipod and there you go. 

The second is a timelapse dolly system.  I've been doing quite a bit of research and I believe I have purchased all the parts for a basic system.  I hope I can start with the timelapse portion this weekend and add the motor controlled dolly next week.  I have some big plans for caputring Summit County once this is built. 

Photos of both coming soon.

Ponoko test

So I've started trying to figure out ways to take some of my manual labor out of the process of building these signs.  Most of the difficulty comes from building the actual housings.  My first attempt to speed this up uses a website called ponoko.com to create the black plastic that blocks the view of the pcbs.  You can see my design for the 1 LED sign to the right.  The blue lines are cut lines and the grey is for engraving.  Hopefully this will allow a spot for the polarized lense to fit.  My design is 20% through the process of being built, I'll let you know when it comes in.

Off to the printer.

The signs files are off to the printer today.  As for the hardware build, the shades are complete.  The software is in Beta, just needs some final Q/A to make sure everything lines up correctly.  Just a couple weeks to go.
