    Web Components

    Slowly getting the hang of this Web Components thing. The idea is to replace the little Javascript I have with 3-2 web components, so I can render them in the front-end, and in my CMS, knowing everything looks the same.

    3d printed automatic screw packaging

    To get rid of plastic bags with screws, this maker has designed a way to insert the screws into the (3d-printed) final product.

    In order to do this he made a complete system that can sort screws and nuts, dispense them in the right amount, and place them into the (paused) 3d print, really cool to see

    Hong Kong’s Kai Tak Airport

    A nice video about the former Kai Tak Airport, situated in the heart of Hong Kong. It would have been so cool to see in real-life.

    It's been 25 years since the closure, and in two weeks. I'll visit it's successor: Hong Kong International Airport for a week-long stay in Hong Kong.
