sk7ca made up a great portable electronics lab (with /A LOT/ of arduino-stuff) in an old laptop case and a small road case. I am so thrilled about this, that I asked him if I could feature his build on my blog and here it is:
He found some really good use for these old computers that no-one seems to throw away but isn’t using it either. Note the VME-bus connectors used to interface the BB to the plugs – really nice.
In this case is all you would need to have some fun on the road – a ton of chips, a small MM and a bunch of wires!
Didn’t I promise a load of Arduino add-ons? Just a lot of bits of hardware that make prototyping fast and clean – just like you would want it on a portable lab.
Be sure to not only check out sk7cas video on this but also his youtube channel! There is a lot of stuff ranging from amiga music to water plasma in a jar….
I just couldn’t resist bidding on some ebay deal where a guy sold his cellar of HIFI-electronics.
There was /much/ more than shown here. This are the parts, I probably gonna use in some way.
JVC GR-SX9 Video Camera
Some very old (1991) Camcorder, I gotta look into connecting it do the pc to finally get some descent webcam input.
AIWA AD1250 Stereo Cassette Deck
This is some very solid case, it will probably house a synth or a mixer in the future.
Blaupunkt 60W 3 Ohm Car Speakers
Just that, they’ll go into a boom-box.
Premier CB 2000 Citizen Broadcast Radio
This one is interesting because i want to get a ham license in the near future. It does not work atm but I’m on it. the amp on top is known as a “Brenner” (afterburner) or “Oma” (grandmother) here in austria. using such an HF-amp with CB is strictly forbidden. (4W only, 12W with SSB)
Hornyphon 6391 Stereo Amplifier, front face
Hornyphon 6391 Stereo Amplifier, inside
Yeah this one needs some serious cleaning and testing but it could very well become a good mate in the future.
