Seriously this.... IS.. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, spent a good day trying to switch the display to working on the Arduino Due. So far, no luck. I seem to be able to send data back and forth, so the protocol itself doesn't seem to be the problem. My guess is that there is some sort of analog/interference in the data transmission. Unfortunately I don't really have the gear to debug that sort of problem. Either a logic analyzer or an oscilloscope would probably be useful. Of which I have neither.Update us when you can, love this thread!
Aye, 3D printing isn't cheap. Haven't run the numbers recently to see.What was the cost to even print the helmet, anyways? It must have cost a fortune!
Yep, it's probably also one of the slowest :behaveWow, this is one of the nicest builds I've seen for one of these. I have always wanted a Guy-Manuel helmet.
I did buy that one. It's actually a sampler for a diffusion plastic, the kind used in car buttons and stuff (raw plastic that's can be injection molded and similar). Somewhere else there's a pack of 10 sheets in 0.002" and 0.005" if I remember correctly. That's the stuff you want. If you want more diffusion you can stack the sheets. 1-3 layers is a nice range in my opinion.Which diffuser material did you go with on the inventables website? There is one on there that seems to be the business but the pricing for a 2in x 3in sheet is quite high.
Cheers. If only that very naggy voice in the back of my head would take the same hint. Or if it could overcome the voice that says "finish Dishonored"...Hey, if you're going to do it, do it right. You can't rush these things!
Oh, it makes some progress pretty much all the time, just not in any way that is presentable. Invariably when I have nothing to do and have access to my laptop (Dr. office, airport, etc) I work on the code base.Glad to see some progress!
This one is definitely not for sale. MINE! MY PRECIOUSSS! Haha.I mean this when I ask? Can you possibly make me one? Is it for sale? How functional is it?
Thanks for the compliment. That was kind of the point of this helmet, to never say no.LOL
Not to be rude, but you do realize how long and painful this build had been right? Hes not going to sell these....
Functionality? The most functional fan made helmet in the world
So... bad news first.Is there gonna be any new vids soon? :3
Even if it's just saying what the progress is, and maybe show. Couple animations with the progress of the rainbows!
