Finally on the display on Dremel's booth at the Assembly Summer 2010.

I like to build pieces that people can touch and use. As this was a project for a client I had to place a "don't touch" sign on the table. People were really interested about this crazy looking build and several visitors made a joke about iPhone's recent reception problems and how this unit with its massive antenna could solve the problem.

Conclusion

I'm glad you had the will to read the article this far. I really love to build things like this and I'm sure not everybody find them appealing. The phrase "The beauty is in the eye of the beholder" fits nicely here but then again, perhaps the aim of all this is not to make anything pretty to look at. "I do it because I can" is another way to look at it and merging together totally different types of components is a thrill and seeing it work in the end makes it all worthwhile. This at least for me.

So, if you have some ideas, even ones that may sound idiotic at first, please, share them. We have seen PCs being built inside toilet seats, coffee maker inside a PC, computer mice built inside a real mice etc. Not everything needs to be built but when we start losing our ability to come up with new ideas, we start to die little from inside.

Whoah, that was deep... Well, I hope you enjoyed my little project and hopefully you picked up some ideas or something from it that you can use later on your own projects. If nothing more, hopefully some courage to publish something as idiotic as this in the internet.

  • Mielestäni olisi kyllä kaivannut hieman lisäsuunnittelua ja pientä viimeistelyä mutta ajan ollessa rajallinen...

  • Niin, samoilla linjoilla itsekin. Syitä on monia miksi näin ei ollut ja aika on ehkä se yksi merkittävin. Toinen vähän sellainen, että kun osat saapuivat yksi kerrallaan ja niissä tuli eteen aina omat ongelmansa niin rakentaminen eteni vaihe vaiheelta edellisen aina sanellessa mitä seuraavaksi voi tehdä. Seliseli mutta ... :)
