Something I finally finished just in time for the Asylum- although I don't think anyone noticed it.



And in the dark...



Originally a Belkin WiFi wireless router, now a fully working Aether Transformer, the First of its Name.

With it's friends-


And the power supply...


WIP pix, if anyone is interested?

I hope people did - it is so much more interesting than the standard dull grey plastic box.

Yours,
Miranda.

I noticed this in the great exhibition! Nice to see it lit up in the photos, is that a miniature plasma ball on top?

Thank you, kind Sir!

I'm sure some people did see it, but I was let down by my battery arrangements... so it wasn't at its full splendor,
advertising itself via the Herzian Aether, for no more than a couple of hours all weekend...  Cry

A 5P cods-up on my part... still. Onward!

It is supposed to be a miniature plasma ball, so a success!

It's actually a cog, a nice glass bead, a bit of plastic light-guide and a tiny glass globe, with an led in the bottom.
