I recently bought a calligraphy set as I'm trying to do more arty stuff at the weekends. What's your current weekend project?

I recently bought a Drone(a tello) , planning to create a glove to control the drone with movement of my hand.
@akshay_vernekar wow that’s awesome! I find drones so tricky to manoeuvre ... do you know Imogen Heap? She’s a musician and tech maker who invented gloves to control her synths and other instruments! So cool!

Besides working on Deprocrastination, I'll spend a couple hours creating a practical collection of tweets, how-to, perspective shifts, etc for myself and others as well - work name is Vita's Vault.
@vitabenes fun! So Vita’s Vault is about promoting wellbeing?

@abadesi About making progress in general. It's going to be an organized collection of the most useful ideas (or tweets) I've found. Examples here
If my Amazon Echo Auto comes in, I will be revamping my first blog post to include in-depth use of the new product!

My boys (8 and 5) and I are starting on our plans to build a cafe racer. So, the first steps of the project will be sourcing the parts, putting together price lists, and then deciding what design to go with. That can start this weekend, and then after that, it'll be time to actually buy the necessary parts and materials!
@jehunter5811 I just had to google cafe racer - wow that’s impressive! Have you built a motor bike before? It’s on my bucket list to make a pedal bike out of a vintage frame and spare parts.
Justin Hunter
@abadesi Oh a vintage bicycle would be awesome! And no, I haven't built a motorbike before, but I have built cars (basically from the frame up) in my younger days. And I've been riding motorcycles for 10+ years now. So it should be an interesting challenge!

@abadesi - that's awesome! I think calligraphy is such a beautiful skill. I Recently bought a large wooden table for community dinners and this weekend I'm excited to put it together in prep for our first group of guests!

Just configured Amazon FireStick TV to show real-time dashboards that I use for my startup. Added website traffic, live stripe payments and live leads (email subscriptions) and just updated company demo page with it. Very happy with the result!
