I´m not dead!


After a break I am back…almost….

There are several Projects “under developement”:

First of all, a quick and easy one: The “Top-Secret” LCD Screen
The second one is a Raspberry Pi in a golden Commodore64 Case – with original Keyboard.
And the third one is a new Cab. An arcade cab specially designed for Shooters like House of dead or Time Crisis.

For the Commodore64 i still need…well…a C64…
The problem is, that I will not pay EUR 60,– upwards for a working C64 for breaking it (besides that my heart would be bleeding when breaking it). If anybody knows where to get a cheap one, let me know – no matter if its working or not (only the Keyboard is important). Even an ugly, rotten unit will do the job cause of the gold-plating.

The arcade cab will take some time, because thats a REALLY expensive project.
Oh, and no, I have not cancelled the ark of covenant 😉



Coming soon….

Oh my god…. April is almost over and I have finished – nothing….
Sorry, but 2015 started real bad for me but the worst part´s over (i hope).

I´ll start a new project real soon – maybe not the ark of covenant (this will be done later when I am (kind of) fully recovered) but a smaller one.


Today there once a small interim report, as well as an outlook for the year 2015

The RaspBoy project is almost completed – but the software must be configured – a work which is not really exciting (hence no update yet;-))

There are also some Pinball-news:

I have decided leave the pinball as it is (well, almost) – so no Steampunk outfit. Too bad, because the thing with the exhaust pipe would have been funny. The Pinball is good as it is – Sideart will be created soon (well, as soon as I bought the plotter)

What I could now do in 2015 ….
A difficult question – a RaspGear is too boring for me atm – maybe later. An arcade cab would be fine, but the project is too expensive at the moment (apart from the fact that I unfortunately have no room for it). At the top of my 2do list is something that is less technical, but rather decorative (similar to the tes-dragon). The Ark of the Covenant.

Yes, you read correctly. Well, not with the same features, but the one or the other gadget I will also incorporate here. First of all I have to check on the project feasibility – planned start is early 2015 – stay tuned!

My second Project: The convertible coffee-pin

Its time to replace the disused Cocktail-Table with a new one.

This time it will be a pinball cab – a virtual pinball cab. In the course of some researches a couple of years ago, I saw a picture of a virtual pinball cab. I thought to myself: “What a nerd…” – well, and now I am building one by myself…

The design should be as discreet as the Cocktail-Table, so I can´t use a “normal” pinball design. The “Backbox” (The fancy glass with a picture and the score) will be a second LCD. The backbox can be raised (pinball mode) or lowered (coffee-table-mode) manually, like a upright drawer. I´ll upload some pictures soon…
