3 Ways to Fold Origami Box.

how to fold origami boxes simple
3 ways to fold Origami Box

I have found these origami box is quite useful. So I compile 3 version of boxes into one video. The first box is bigger in size but the side wall is a bit thin, you can use it to put some candy and treats.
The second box is a taller, can use to keep something taller obviously. and the third box was smaller but stronger, I usually use it as a temporary container while working on small parts. You can also use the combination of those box as an organizer container in your drawer.
Below is the how to fold video:

14 in 1 Educational Solar Robot Kit.

This is the 14 in 1 Solar Robot Kit made in China. I have purchase this set online from aliexpress.com. I thought it might be crap but turns out to be Ok.
It can be rebuild into 14 types of robot: Turtle bot, Walker bot, Quadru bot, Wheel bot, Boat bot, Beetle bot, Dog bot, Auto bot, Crab bot, Slither bot, Roli poly bot, Zombie bot, Surf bot and Row bot.
Since it is too many of them to be able to fit in a video, so I will separate it into 3 videos.

Fidget Spinner with popsicle sticks - without using Bearing

Just found out that fidget spinner was invented since 1993, I wonder why it didn't took off during that time. And I also don't know why it is so popular now. If you know the reason please put your comment below.
The fidget spinner, not sure if it is called fidget spinner back then, it was marketed as stress-relieving toys. It is used to help people who have trouble focusing those with ADHD, autism or anxiety. But some say the toy might be distracting
Anyway, I think it serve no purpose what so ever. To find out I build one myself with popsicle sticks.

Shelby GT350R 1965

This is the 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R PaperCraft, Design by K.SHINOZAKI
model scale 1/25, about L185mm x W75mm.


Shelby GT350 R PaperCraft (Front View).
The actual Shelby GT350 featured 306 hp courtesy of its modified K-code 289cid V8 engine. This was 35 horses more than that offered in the standard 289cid engine.
The car also featured a Holly carburetor, Cobra valve covers, and a special Cobra hi-rise intake manifold. It also featured a four-speed manual transmission and side-exhaust pipes fitted with two-inch Glasspak mufflers. Most notably, the 1965 GT350 had no rear seat. This was because SCCA B Production requirements only permitted two-seater cars. In its place was a fiberglass floor, with a spare tire mounted beneath the rear glass.
The 1965 G.T. 350 was not built for comfort or ease of driving. There were 34 "G.T. 350R" race-spec cars built specifically for competition use under SCCA rules, and the model was the B-Production champion for three straight years. The 1966 G.T. 350 had featured more comfort of casual drivers that included rear seats, optional colors, and an optional automatic transmission. This trend for additional features continued in following years, with the cars becoming progressively larger, heavier, and more comfortable, while losing much of their competitiveness in the process. The 1969 G.T. 350s and 500s were largely styling modifications to a stock Mustang. By 1969 Carroll Shelby was no longer involved in the Shelby GT program, and the design was done in-house by Ford.

My MacBook Pro stuck at loading screen: Solved

My MacBook (macOS Sierra) run a bit laggy recently and one day it just wont boot up. It stuck at the loading screen where the loading bar stopped at about 60%.
MacBook Pro stuck at loading screen
So, I can't do any video editing and upload any videos for quite sometime. It was really frustrating and a very bad experience. Anyway, since can make this post, thats mean my mac is back to normal.
Now, I'm going to list down how I found the problem and what I have done to fix it.
First, I found some Mac Startup key which are very useful to debug a mac.

Below are quick overview of those keys:
+------
To boot your Intel-based Mac into any of OS X’s built-in startup modes, you must press and hold one or more keys detailed below after turning on the computer. Press the keys immediately after hearing the startup sound, unless otherwise specified.

  • Manually restart: Power (⎋)
  • Single-User Mode: Command (⌘)—S
  • Boot from NetBoot server: N
  • Boot from NetBoot server using the default image: Option (⌥)—N
  • Eject removable media: Media Eject (⏏)F12, mouse button or trackpad button
  • OS X Startup Volume: X will start up your Mac from an OS X startup volume when it’d otherwise boot from a non-OS X volume, like a Windows partition
  • Prevent Login Items from opening: To override your current settings and prevent Login Items and Finder windows from your last session from opening when you log in, hold down the Shift (⇧) key after clicking the Log In button in OS X’s login window until the desktop appears.
  • Prevent automatic login: If you enabled the option to automatically log a specific OS X account every time your Mac starts up, you can override this setting by holding the left Shift (⇧) key after OS X’s boot progress indicator appears.
  • Reset PRAM/NVRAMCommand (⌘)—Option (⌥)—P—R, then release the keys after you hear the startup sound for a second time
  • Reset SMC: Shut down your Mac, and then press and hold the left-side Shift (⇧)—Control (⌃)—Option keys along with the Power (⎋) button, all at the same time, until the computer turns on. Now release the keys and then turn your Mac back on using the power button.
------+
I have tried to Reset PRAM/NVRAM and Reset SMC, but that doesn't solve the problem, so it probably is not a hardware problem.
So, I boot the mac with Verbose Mode, verbose mode means it will list everything going on behind the scenes. You'll watch as item and extensions being loaded during the booting process. 
The loading process was smooth at the beginning, until after a few second it stuck at:
SmartBattery: finished polling type 4     (as shown below)


I have no idea what any of those means. After some web research, found out the actual error might be the: " busy timeout[1], (60s), kextd wait(0): 'AppleACPICPU', 'PNLF', ...... ", a few lines above the "polling type 4". which cause by some extension or driver problem of the MacOS Sierra. 

To solve this problem I'll need to re-install the macOS, but too bad I don't have the Sierra installation disc, I only have the very old macOS X disc which comes with the MacBook, and apple just won't let you re-install the old MacOS over the newer Sierra. (If you have the Sierra installation disc or thumb drive, You can just boot the mac to recovery mode and re-install MacOS Sierra from there.)

Since I don't have the Sierra installation disc and I don't want to lose all the information in my hard drive. So what I can do, is to swap a new hard drive into the MacBook pro, and start a new installation. Also, it is about time to upgrade my storage space. As for the old hard drive I will get a hard drive enclosure and make it a external hard drive.
About swapping out the hard drive in a MacBook pro, it is easier then you thought, just refer to the link here: https://www.extremetech.com/computing/58220-upgrade-your-macbook-pros-hard-drive-2 
They will teach you how to change the hard drive for every model of MacBook.

After install the new hard drive, I boot the mac from the MacOS X installation disc, by hold down the C key. The installation run smoothly, and my MacBook boot up perfectly like new. 
After that I have to do a few MacOS upgrade, until it gets to MacOS Sierra. It is time consuming but that's the way to go and I don't have to buy a new notebook. 
Now everything has back to normal, just need to reinstall all the application I used to have. 

What a bad experience,  :-(
Hope that will help, if you have the same problems.

BMW 328i Paper Craft

This the the best BMW paper craft template I can find on the web.
It is not easy to make but the final product looks good.
I get the template from www.hd-paper.net, the original template included the interior detail of the car but I think it is too time consuming to make, so I print only the the templates without interior parts.

You can download the template from www.hd-paper.net or here:

BB-8 Droid PaperCraft Version 2

This is the version 2 of BB-8 Droid paparcraft design by n8s.deviantart.com
It has more detail and weathered texture which make the model looks more realistic.
At the same time make it harder to build than version 1.
Anyway I have build it by scale it down 50%. But my advice is, not to scale it down, just built it as it is, because it is even harder to build when all parts getting smaller.

Ford EcoSport PaperCraft

Ford EcoSport, It is not a very popular SUV, but I think it is very good looking little car. It has the rugged looks, spare tire hanging at the back. Just love it. Its performance might not be as good as it looks, but I think people who buy this car will just use it in the city, do some grocery or school run.
Is good enough.

This PaperCraft is from the ford japan website http://ford.jp/mailnews/download/, but it was not accessible right now.
