Demonstrating Minusonic at Greenworks Cultivating Independence

Recently met the guys and learners over at Greenworks, UK to give a demonstration of the Minusonic Board and Enclosure. Took a little finding out in the fields of South Yorkshire, UK but great to share the kit and enhance their senses and experience of nature as they found insects around their farm. Think we unearthed spiders and woodlouse, next time we’ll listen to the…

New Laser-cut custom hexagonal case

New Laser-cut custom hexagonal case

We’ve been busy making a custom laser-cut hexagonal case of layered 3 mm mdf or coloured acrylic to contain the Minusonic Board v2. We made version 1 of the case and have made some slight alterations to create this polished case featured here, to make it sleek and durable which we aim for you be able to buy pre-assemble with the board inside or assemble yourself.…

We’ll be at EMF Camp 2016

Minusonic will be attending the Electromagetic field camp 2016 demoing the Minusonic board in The Nature Chamber we built it with. We’ll have a few boards on sale until we run out (small runs to get started) but they’ll be available to order here at the site and we’ll print another run soon. https://www.emfcamp.org/ August 5th – 7th. Hope to see those with tickets there.

PCB’s Arrived

They’ve arrived and we’re getting ready to solder them up. We’ve ordered some of the parts from our suppliers, still the caps, resistors and audio jack to come. PL5 is where the microphone will reside. Working on a collapsible container to house it in. Will share an image of its progress soon as well as one made up.

Ordered the PCB’s

After extensive testing through breadboards, jumper cables, caps, pots, resistors, observing and testing with the oscilloscope and different containers we have found the optimum circuit and sent our dual layer Printed Circuit Board plans to be printed. We used DesignSpark (free) to create the layouts and schematics and had fun figuring out how to bring in our custom shaped logo to the silkscreen layer of the…
