Detailed Discussion in this video:
This system allows you to mount a device to a display and have the device remain aligned to the display. If the display rotates, the device will as well.
This is especially helpful for things like Eye Gaze devices for Assistive Technology users (and gamers, it turns out) and perhaps cameras and more.
This system is based on our prototype “Watch band” mount for the Tobii EyeX eye gaze device: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2266941 which should be considered obsolete.
To use this system, you will need a Base, some links, and a device connection. Right now we have one base (the VESA mount) and two device connections (the EyeX and 4C eye gaze devices). Additional bases such as tablet & laptop mounts as well as additional devices such as cameras will be added to this system.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
