I added more items to the Mobile Science Lab. The main new item is a WeatherFlow WEATHERmeter. This is a pretty neat bluetooth device that captures wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure.
New stuff means I needed to update the case. I fiddled a bit to get everything to fit. I think the next iteration will end up including layers. I will need to find some laser safe foam core or something light like that. The cardboard won’t hold up all that well when there are removable sections.
I ordered a much larger Pelican case tonight. The SCiO I am ordering at the end of the week should fit into the new case.
I’ve also added some NFC stickers a few places to make using the bits a little easier. The case has my contact info embedded in it. The WEATHERmeter is now set up to just tap the phone against it and the correct App will load.
My botany books and my botany tool roll. And the kids playing in the yard while I work up this catnip plant ( I got for mosquito repellant for the kids ) in both the books.
I designed and 3D printed this self closing tweezers to hold plants so I can look at them with the loupe.
It was a bit difficult reading through the books with the kids interrupting me with new plants to look up about every 90 seconds. Luckily I know a good portion of what’s in the yard so I could quickly send them off, looking for more.
The tweezers are the expensive bit – from the eyebrow-plucking section in Walmart. The Loupe and ‘microscope’ loupe are out of China on Ebay. Cost less than one of the eyebrow tweezers. Crazyness.
My 3d printed self closing tweezers are the most awesome, of course, but that is just me thinking highly of them.
