New Site, New Camera

On 05, Nov 2013 | No Comments | In Uncategorized | By admin

Well guys, I have my new site up and running now.

Hopefully over the coming days/weeks I’ll get my projects updated and some other parts of the site filled out. I’ve been working on a ton of projects, at school, at work, and at home, and I have a lot I wanna share. To help me do that, I purchased a newwww camera! I remember reading an article on Make about how without proper documentation, much of the magic of how you did something is lost, and I definitely agree. My iphone has been handy many times in the past, but hopefully with my new Sony RX100 I’ll be able to get some good macro shots, and just over all better quality. If anything, the sunk cost of the camera purchase will at least force me to document my process better.

Most recently, I’ve taken to updating my Laser Clock project with some new pictures (and a new laser card, which finally came back in stock at Sparkfun recently), so you can see first hand how much nicer a good camera is at seeing the gear ratio of things. Here’s a shot of the back of the module with the shaft of the second hand sticking out (I had to move it out of the way so that the laser card could lie flush on the hour shaft).

Back Case of the Laser Clock's quartz crystal module. The hole with the small peg coming out is the shaft connected to the seconds hand, which I moved so that the laser card can be held flush.
