GID AsteroiDunny

This is the mysterious AsteroiDunny. The sample pictured here is an 8" version I made as a commission for a Kidrobot forum member.

Before that, I'd made a run of three 3" AsteroiDunnies that sold way faster than I expected. Thanks to the folks that bought 'em, your support is appreciated.

Here's what it looks like with the lights on:

Summer Recap Pt. 2: Bleep Labs Thingamakit

This is the Thingamakit from Bleep Labs. It's a small DIY analog synthesizer.

The kit contains all the parts needed to assemble a wonderful little gizmo that's great for making all kinds of awesome electronic noises. The 1/4" output allows you to hook it up to effect pedals and amplifiers. I like using my Boss/Roland RE-20 Space Echo and a SubDecay NoiseBox for some serious noise madness.

After soldering up the kit, I gave the enclosure a custom paint job.

I'd also like to add that the folks at Bleep Labs are totally awesome. They are truly dedicated to the DIY scene and very helpful people. Thanks again Dr. Bleep.

Summer Recap Pt.1: PAL

Back in August, I finished up this little guy. His name's PAL and he wants to be your buddy.

This one is a pretty basic design and I was experimenting with different methods of creating the "static" on the TV screen. I think it came out pretty nice.

I've Been Busy...More Posts Soon

Ok...I've been way too lazy about keeping up this blog, but now I think I've got some stuff to post about so get ready. Lots of stuff has happened since the last post so stay tuned...we'll have more shortly.

For now, check out this super-sweet Eames Lounge Chair from the Design Interior Collection Vol. 2. Master Chief seems to think it's pretty cool.
