Cardbox, pinball and DIY

That’s not something I usually do, advertising for other project is not really my goal, but I really like this one, find it really interesting, I’ve got a good contact with the creators, and I really want to see it to be successful.

So this is a project about pinball, card box and do it yourself.

Two strange guys, Pr Pete and Pr Ben from what they call the Cardboard Teck Instantute have made a nice and working blank tabletop pinball table made only of card box, rubber band and rivets, no glue or any complex tools needed: The PinkBox 3000 !

 

During the Kickstarter they also sell some ready to build pre-made tables:

And here is a gif of the blank table and some table made by them or other people:

And to be clear, I’m not paid to do this (even if it would be nice for working on my projects :-P) on the contrary, I backed that project and I would really want to see it completed!

So please if you find that project interesting, please help them by backing it 🙂

Patreon: 986-Studio need your help

I hate to ask for such a thing, but unfortunately, working on electronic project, especially the one like the Madeleine Project, or my projects around the Oric cost some me money, and money doesn’t grow on tree. I’m currently in a situation where I’m stuck and can’t work on project because of money.

That’s why, I’ve started a Patreon page to allow people who want to support me on theses projects. I can’t offert a lots of rewards for the moment as it’s a bit early, but I will make the reward evolve with time. Currently you can have one of the current beta Madeleine board if you pledge enough, quantity are limited so you should hurry! 😉

You are not obliged to help me through Patreon, it will not change my project and how this blog is working, unless mentioned in a reward/goal, it will just allow me to work quicker and in better conditions on my projects. All pledge amount are welcomed, and if you want to help me, even $1 is a good gesture from you, so don”t be ashamed if you can’t, or only a for small amount.

Don’t forget to put a maximum on your pledge per month as I setup my account on pledge per update and not per month, as I don’t know the frequency of update I will do, I plan for approx 1 per month, but I may sometime update more than once, and you may not want to put more this month.

So, if you want to help me and my project, you are welcome to go to

and become my patron.

Thank you to everyone who read this blog and to those who would want to help me,

Oric Cumulus Revision 2 & other projects

Hi everyone,

I didn’t updated here really often during the last month because I was quite busy and didn’t had a lot of time to works on my projects. I have more time now, and wow, I’ve made a lot of things recently!

As I previously posted, the Oric Mouse project is underway, I’ve discovered a few stupid mistakes and I was too confident when I made the PCB, I’ve overlooked something on the voltage that the 6502 and 6522 will accept as logic high, and of course both of them doesn’t like the 3.3V that I send them as a logic high… The result will be that I need to do some changes on the schematics for that project, but no worries, I will still be able to use the prototype I’ve made, but it’s just slowing down the project a bit, but it will be back on track quickly.

Presentation of the Project Madeleine

Hi everyone,

I’ve promised that a long time ago now and completely forgot to add the presentation here.

So, during the RGC2015, I made a presentation of the Project Madeleine, my primary project for the WonderSwan, which include the flash cart I’m working on.

The PDF of the presentation can be found here: Projet Madeleine Presentation
