13Cubed Residence
21:57.16 285-16 OTC
One common anxiety I often experience is in redundancy or static environments. Because of this, it is often difficult to wish to reside in one place before the walls begin to seemingly close in. Nomadic is a natural trait; pioneers are those who conquered and achieved greater than those who stayed behind. It is a gift and burden all the same.


A consequence of this aspiration, a residence for one's self is not a desirable design. If there were some way to perhaps incorporate this requisite for instability. Here we have so attempted a theory on a modular design, creating 13 by 13 foot independent foundations and segmentation that may be easily removed and replaced so as to accommodate what is currently coveted. Utilities would be segmented so as to attach and detach at will and adjoining segments would be anchored with coherence of possible removal.

With the recent cancellation of our hackaday.io/TVMiller account due to refuted censorship by HackADay.io dogmatist Sophi Kravitz, all hackaday.io links on existing project posts and YouTube and Vidme descriptions are now invalid.

Despite this surly affair, a sincere thank you to HackADay for the experiences.

TVShow S02E18X61 Arduino Umpire Mask #OneDayBuild
03:59.47 282-16 OTC
It is time for the MLB to join the modern era by translating the often unclear umpire muttering and connecting them to the rest of us at home. In our first #OneDayBuild comes the Arduino Umpire Mask that delivers an immediate visual response to that crucial life or death call.

Not a software designer, so simply close your eyes and imagine that the Counter App is also IoT and seamlessly updating several resources.

Shout out to umpires young and old who wear these bulbous masks; holy cripes!
Shout out to Leslie Nielsen -- you are missed.

Thursday Throw Back - TVShow "McDuff"
17:11.5 271-16 OTC
While you unknowingly anxiously awake our next engineering project, TVShow episode and/or random cathartic verbal diarrhea -- as experimentation with our newer alternative internet platforms, here is a throw back to one of my personal favorite TVShow episodes from Series 1 that fed my silent motion picture kick and co-starred Maximus Dogralius. Enjoy, won't you?
