• Supercon is over; Didn't win anything

    Supercon is over.

    I had to enter the badge enclosure in the "hardware" category, for lack of a better category, and so didn't win a damned thing. 

    Man, I worked so hard on this! I worked for a week and a half, and then each night until 6am. Each day I'd wake up after 4 hours of sleep and then still have 2 hours of  time waiting for the 3d printer before I could run off to the show, which meant I missed all of the mornings and didn't arrive until 1pm or later (5:30 on Friday). 

    Now that the show is over, probably nobody will ever touch this badge again, since they aren't for sale or anything.

    Perhaps this was not a good use of my time.

    For completeness sake, I made some last adjustments to the model to help the buttons to not bind. I'm not going to bother to print it.

    It's all on GitHub. Go get it if you care.

    Here are pictures of the next to final version.

    Front view
    Front view; notice there is not a grille for the speaker. I didn't bother to populate the lightpipes, since they just blur out the LEDs. You can put them if you want.
    I call this the "three cheeks" version.

    Bottom View
    Bottom View; the HDMI port seems a bit more recessed than I'd like.
    Side View
    Side View; notice the power switch. Sometimes it works. I don't think That's my fault, the switch used is pretty shitty, and mounted in a strange recess for some reason.
    Side View: USB side
