This is an older project that I re-added to the site for any one who is interested. The really interesting thing about this was the lack of RTC. As I remember it used a general timer and would auto correct for variances by adding or subtracting time from the next run. As I remember the […]

Custom Lego Minifigure and Hot Wheels Shadowbox
After looking around for a shadow box deep enough to hold our simpsons lego minifigures and simpsons hot wheels cars I had to make my own. Most shadow boxes are not deep enough to handle the cars and some of the minifigures. The build is very simple in that its pine and for the joints […]
