Tie up Your Dirigible and Visit for a Spell

Steampunk USB Pen Drive Storage Contraption Add Video

An old GENERAL RADIO Co. resistance box is converted to hold multiple pulsing pen drives with light observable through vintage radio vacuum tubes. Room for a 1T hard drive. Prisoner of technology trapped inside. Not difficult to build but finding the parts is. Two pen drives are easily removable. Pen drives must be un-shelled. Sandisk Cruzer drives are the product of choice for this project because they continuously pulse and then flicker when data is accessed and are a quality product of course.

Hi Darmain: Thanks for the tip. Monitor is a stripped Dell LCD and fitted to and old mirror stand I bought at a garage sale for $5. Lots in the junk stores. If you go to a stained glass shop you can buy sticky copper foil to disguise the plastic frame of the monitor. Working on another USB box but maybe do a monitor stand how to video for INSTRUCTABLES.

I bet you've been told this about a million times, but there is a keyboard available out there made of bamboo. It looks wooden, and could easily be modded to have some brass features and fit in nicely with your beautiful setup there. I love the monitor in particular. very jealous!

The baby doll is a little creepy, but it's beautiful. I love the music!
