That has got to be the cleanest switch setup yet. No more breadboards or secondary kits to buy. Thanks! My monitor powers up just enough to run a pi2 and controllers, so I'll have a one button on, 2 button power off setup. My other option is to put in a power strip and wire the momentary to both sets, this switch code is a game changer for me. I knew which kit you ordered, its the same one I'm planning on using, so I'm glad it configures easy.
So many questions, mainly on the tech side of this. I would assume you're using retropie, so how was the configuration of the controller? How is the power switched? I'm MDF, controllers and time away from making this project, have the 32" screen and the pie already set up, using wired PS3 controllers temporarily. Enjoy the machine, it's a fun toy for kids of all ages!
I've seen "belt racks" out there at every martial arts show that only hold the belts in a Chinese pillar and beam style. They don't hold all of the belts, much less any weapons or trophy and plaque space. This was built all spur of the moment using those as a design cue, but with attention and requirements to hold all of their chosen weapons that they're trained with and any awards they get in the same location. As each martial artist will eventually train with different weapons of different sizes, their needs for a flexible mounting system of various sized items are required. My son, as you can see uses nunchucks, staves, sais, knives, bows, swords and kamas and has multiple styles of many of them. My wife (wall hanging one) uses Kama, bostaff, swords and nunchucks only.
From experience I can tell you, you will have overheating and failure problems without some ventilation coming though. May I suggest a couple USB fans drawing air through the front, out the back? They would turn on with the system and keep a supply of fresh and cool air flowing to the machines. I've replaced both the xbox and the ps3/4's because of a lack of airflow. It took about 6 months for the 3 and xbox to die about a year for the 4.
Well, I've made bottle table lamps for a while, and I've made wall vases for flowers, I wanted to push my creativity as far as I can. I'll be refining this Idea further with wall sconces on existing light outlets eventually. And I just so happened to buy a tile saw that needed a project or three while getting used to it for a tile job.
Thank you! He joins the Marines in June, and as he was packing up various stuff this became a project to make rather than giving them away. Hopefully he will use it to store his medals and ribbons in when he retires!
