I have made two new PCBs, a 16 LED-scanner card and a new version of the 555 TARDIS, looks pretty good I think!

More old stuff
This little cute creature is made by Peter at Gothenburg Prop Makers. I helped him to make a servo controller board and to program the radio transmitter.
The larva was exposed in the exhibition hall at Gothenburg Film Studios during the Open set 2010.
Here you can see the “making of” video and the larva in action:
The larva was really popular amongst the visitors, probably because they could try to control it by them self.
I don’t remember exactly how we got to the point where we came up with the idea to make it into a modular platform, but it had something to do with the ATtiny4313 I think, sounded like a good idea to make it more versatile!
Why stop at making a wireless firing system, right?! 😉
fireCrow: first draw
The firing system was originally designed for squibs (SFX body hits), so it’s very important that the size is as small as possible to be easily concealed under the actor’s clothes.
At first we were stuck with the idea of a wireless firing system, but when we found the ATtiny4313 with “a lot” more memory (4K instead of 2K) than the ATtiny2313, we started to fantasize about what could be done with all that space!
It’s been a while since I wrote last time so I thought I’d better put something up!
Eye of the Cambot 3000
This was my small contribution to GoKinema this year…

Anders at Gothenburg Prop Makers made the fantastic robot and I helped him to give it “life”!
The bot is made from old film lamps, lenses, tripods, and old camcorders, it stood in the entry hall at Gothenburg Film Studios during GoKinema. Continue reading
