Lots of @adafruit parts arrived today! A bunch of soundcards, and stereo speaker sets which I will cut in halves, since they were out of monos. Also, my order was enough $ they threw in a free perma-proto board. I don't really understand what those are for though. They confuse me. lol

Installed the handles on the ends tonight. Now it needs a small console on the front edge, and the overhead light installed. Then just to mount the tablets in the right positions. Mass Effect weapons table is nearly done!

Lot of hours in on this this weekend, but it's coming along nicely. The ledge around the outside of the bench is huge though. LOL Have some big features to cut in to the sides, but, a lot of progress made.

Started working on a 3D model of the weapon workbench from Mass Effect 3. Mainly I want to make this as a backdrop to render other models on. 😎 Kinda just guesstimating on the sizes based on screenshots and my own workbench.

And, another V3 under my belt! The grips on this one are all holding on just with your finger tips hooked on the edges (circled in yellow), and very small and few foot chips (underlined in white). Working on this one for a while, and FINALLY got it tonight! Starts in the lower right, goes up to the left, then a little jump back to the right at the end. Person for scale.

FINALLY, pricing! 😎 , though, it is definitely pricey. So probably my robotic minion purchases will be vinyl cutter, 3D printer, then laser cutter, in that order. Definitely good to finally have the information though, and make plans!

🎶🎶🎶 And BAM! Just like that, I've got the audio Scorpions' circuit sorted! After months of messing around with transistors and trying to learn them, I decided instead of googling my theoretical problem (switching one circuit based on another), let me google my exact problem (syncing LEDs with the @adafruit soundcard). Found someone looking to do exactly the same thing, on the Adafruit forums, and an official answer from a forum admin. Tie the negative lead of the LED straight into the ACTivity pin of the soundboard. NEVER would've figured it out on my own, but now I know, it makes sense. Huzzah!

The twins are reunited. Had found Scott in Target for cheap awhile ago, picked up Sara on Amazon for cheap a few days ago.

Qapla! Klingon is now available in the @duolingo mobile app (on Android anyway). 😎 Oh, and Valyrian from Game of Thrones.

BAM! Finally got this black V3 route! Had it in halves, then tonight finally put them together. My arms were DEAD after! It is a really nice route though! Starts with a reach up of about 3 feet, then about 6 or 7 feet across the ceiling followed by a 90 degree transition around the corner and about 10 feet straight up. Solid holds, but some challenging moves. Success!

Back to working on this thing too, in-betweens. The back thumb-guard thing for the Spirit Halloween Scorpions. It's not super game-accurate, but neither is the Spirit Halloween toy. It's close enough to match the toy and get the feel though. The detailing is basically done, ... but I want to get a closer mate-up where it connects to the toy before attempting to cast it.
