This is the phone locking mechanism I’ve designed for my First Person View (FPV) racing goggle university project. On the left is the initial test piece and on the right the final test piece. A clockwise twist will lock the phone into position and when you want to release it, press the button and rotate it anti-clockwise. Simples! To use that is, designing it all to fit into a headset and accommodate several phone sizes… not so simples.
This is a truly inspirational use of modern technology. The opportunities that can arise from a connected global team of intelligent individuals are limitless.
How else can the world benefit from the advances in technology and materials?

That got your attention! No, I’m talking about the knob on my pinhole camera.
I designed and 3D printed the spool adapter and winder for my Pinhole Moments camera. The spool is a standard spool that you get with any 120 film. I designed the winder so there is a force fit that is strong enough to lock into position but easy enough to remove without Hulk-smashing the cardboard pinhole camera upon removal.
Here are a selection of 3D prints I have worked on recently to demonstrate the processes involved in 3D printing to friends and family, both young and old. I found an effective way to do this is to design and produce a relatively simple 3D print, such as key fobs and wall plaques, and allow people to have a play around with the software and printer.
