Stretch bracelet in PLA
I wrote a post!
I finally got around to blogging about PURR, my hackathon project at the AT&T Dev Summit Hackathon ^__^
Code is far from complete, but hey I just wanted this post done.
It’s a 3D printed bracelet that measures your pulse rate for anxiety, and sends a kitten to your phone if you’re having a bad time.
Installed a direct drive extruder on my Printrbot recently, replacing the very endearing but sorta overbearing coupled gear assembly.
Had a few hiccups along the way, but always chuffed to walk away having learned a thing or two
I Plasti Dip’d my Chromebook today!

I installed an LCD controller on my Printrbot Jr v1, and wrote about it here: http://meow.suziam.com/printrbot-jr-lcd-controller-upgrade/
I’m currently in Minneapolis after attending a very cool conference, INST-INT. I stayed an extra day to explore Minneapolis, as it’s my favourite city in the US. Today’s mission was to find the ‘Elf Door’ set into a tree, behind which a mysterious fellow named Mr Little Guy lives. In the past Mr Little Guy would respond to letters from children, tucked behind the door.
Today after a hunt down by Lake Harriet, I found the door in an unassuming looking tree. It was beautiful! I loved the lion door knocker.
As I was taking pictures, two children ran up, wanting to investigate what I was photographing while kneeling down in such an odd manner.
They knocked on the door each, and nobody answered. “Maybe I didn’t knock hard enough,” the young man suggested to his father.
Sadly, the door is now locked shut but Mr Little Guy, who has “moved home to his castle”, still accepts letters at a PO Box.
Really glad I made the trip out today to see it!
