As has been discussed ad nauseam, I’ve been ridiculously in to little projects lately. I don’t know why I’ve gotten such a thrill out of making shit, but if anyone’s been suffering from it, it’s been my poor wife.
Well I no longer feel sorry for her.
While she has been in Seattle these past couple of weeks, she indulged in her own favourite hobby, hitting up the Thrift Shop (props to Macklemore, another Seattle native) and she found me the most outrageous gift ever.
Not even a little.
I’d like you all to meet Sir Bedivere.
Now I can hear you saying to yourself:
It really looks like a helmeted knight right there. Who for some reason has a 70s-era flip clock embedded in his chest. And you’d be right. A fully functional helmet. And a totally pimp clock.
Normally I’d be kinda creeped out by a statue face inside of a helmet. Probably something from Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade or the like scarred me for life and I have since done a truly excellent job at repressing it.
And yet, this guy is bad ass all the way around:
So this leaves me wondering just what to DO with him. The clock in his base (happily?) does not appear to work. Right now I am thinking that I figure some way to get the clock out and replace it with a Raspberry Pi. Of course then the question becomes “what does one install on it?” I already have a SmartThings and Nest network in my house, so automation is pretty handled.
Any other suggestions?
