• Reviving an iPod Classic: Overloaded with Mods

    After I started to revive my blog, I remembered many of the small projects I had started. Some of them are close to completion. But as we all know, it always takes the longest to finish.

  • Win 3.11 diskette coaster

    I received some old Win 3.11 installation diskettes from a colleague. These diskettes are the perfect size to be repurposed into coasters for your mug. However, they are not waterproof. I found silicone molds on AliExpress designed for use with epoxy.

  • Fixing a Buggy Board

    At the flea market, we bought a buggy board for our stroller. The buggy board looked well-preserved, except for a few signs of wear. However, maneuvering with the board wasn’t very easy, as the steering axles of the board were somewhat stiff.

  • Retrospect: Photobooth Project

    A few years ago, I embarked on a Photobooth project. I describe it as ‘started’ because, while it is operational, it’s not yet complete. The ideas and roadmap for the project are available in the GitHub repository. I plan to add features periodically.

  • Teardown: Inexpensive Children Camera

    I recently purchased several inexpensive children’s cameras on AliExpress. These cameras are available from various shops, priced between 4 to 15€. I ordered four samples from different sellers, noticing slight variations in build quality and firmware. These variations were evident through different button layouts and the presence of missing or malfunctioning features.

  • Fixing a broken pedelec motor

    The plastic gear in the first-generation Bosch Pedelec Motor, also known as Bosch Classic, has gained notoriety for its tendency to break. Having owned the bike since 2011, I experienced a gear failure in 2022.

  • Creating a Low Power LED DCF77 Clock: A DIY Project Journey

    During a visit to the local hackerspace, I observed someone engraving signatures onto a silicon wafer as a retirement gift, sparking an idea. With a colleague nearing retirement, I sought silicon wafers on eBay and was fortunate to find some. What began as a simple notion soon evolved into a larger project: constructing a clock with a silicon wafer serving as the clock face, complete with LEDs—the epitome of any “cool” project.
