I was hoping to have some more progress on another product for you this week…
But, unfortunately, I’m still working on the fulfillment of the Titanium Mechanical Pencil and Titanium Tweezers V2.0 for Kickstarter projects.
So instead I thought I’d share some cool photos and videos I’ve been posting to Instagram and my YouTube Channel throughout this last week.
I’ll do this in a “Question and Answer” style:
“Magnus, What Does Your Desk Setup Look Like?”
Well, I usually work from the cafe in the morning. And that looks something like this…
The usual cafe I work in. Two laptops and a coffee …and I’m set for a full day in there.
And, later in the afternoon (and into the evening), I continue to work from home with this setup…
Doing more and more video recently (hence the NEED for a Apple MacBook). And recently becoming obsessed with camera lenses too.
“Magnus, Are You Still Making A Knife?”
The short answer is:
The long answer is:
I’ve not been able to make further progress without a manual/cnc milling machine to prototype.
Here’s the thing…
I quickly found out that I can’t get very far with just a water-jet cutter and hand-tools (well, not for the sort of knife I want to make!).
So, yeah, it’s on hold right now unfortunately.
In the meantime I’ve been “researching” (which is my guilt-free word for buying :-P) other knives. Here’s a nice little example:
I used to see people posting photos of coffee and knifes. I used not get it …until I bought this very cool knife (I think it’s a Marfione Sigil – can’t remember).
“Magnus, What Was That ‘Magic Mouse’ Thing On Instagram All About?”
Okay, so I’ll start right at the beginning (in case you’ve missed the action)…
I post on Instagram at least once a day. If you’re not familiar with Instagram (and I know a lot of people reading this are not aware what it is) …it’s basically an App on your phone where you can upload photos and videos quickly and easily.
People can comment and ‘like’ it and easily share it with others. I stayed away from it for a long time because I’m not into social media type stuff really …but, boy, was that a mistake. It’s so much more than that.
Here’s a screenshot of my profile on Instagram:
Even if, like me, you are not into “social media” …Instagram is something I recommend you take a look at anyway.
Anyway, I got bored last Saturday and decided to chop my Apple ‘Magic Mouse’ in half (that’s the computer mouse for my Apple computer).
I took a video of it being cut and showed the “internals” of the mouse. And, well, it went kind of semi-viral (certainly compared to anything I’ve posted before).
Actually, here a better explanation for you:
So, yeah, I’ve started cutting some other stuff now as well.
More on this later…
