GoPro Trekking Pole Mount


Minimalistic GoPro mount for Fizan Compact trekking poles utilizing the original accessory (the part that holds the poles together while they are not in use).

Wall Mount for chain


I made this slip in adapter for the chain end as the Velcro and tape kept peeling off. I drilled 2 small holes and screwed this holder in place on the case. The previous mount slides right in to this.

Its fast and holds perfectly.

Nice story today on how  +Whosa whatsis and I are trying to create #scientificmakers. (Overstates our role a bit in the fight against invasive beetles, which is described a bit more accurately in our hackaday.io project, but it's good to get people talking about what is possible.)

Check out my entry with +Whosa whatsis   into the ‪#‎2016HackadayPrize‬ - we are going in under their Assistive Technology ‪#‎a11y‬ category, which officially opens for entries Monday. We have started building out now so that we can get as many comments and collaborators as possible. We think there are two communities that need to meet each other:
1. Mainstream schools who have just gotten 3D printers often are wondering what do to with them.
2. Teachers of the visually impaired often have access to a 3D printer, but rarely have time to design their own models.
So we are developing a set of guidelines, instructions for readable Braille, and open-source mdoels that follow the guidelines. Next up we are figuring out how have some sort of minimalist open source sharing exchange so that groups 1 and 2 can find each other. The development period (during which community participation and comments are encouraged!) runs through October 3. Please check us out, comment, and give us a Hackaday Skull if you are a site member!
