Goldeneye 007 Remote Mine by ComradeQuiche #3dthursday
Not only a very cool print with integrated electronics components, but also a good litmus test to tell what you were doing in the late 90s. Created by ComradQuiche, shared as Thingiverse Thing 54528:
A printable Remote Mine prop with blinking lights, a beeper, and a magnetic back!
If you grew up in the 90’s, you’ve played Goldeneye, and if you’ve played Goldeneye you should recognize this classic weapon!
After creating a tutorial on Instructables on how to make a Remote Mine using an old joystick base, I decided that I would model one up so others could print their own. The problem with my Instructables is it requires you to find a “PC Commander” Joystick from the 90’s to use as the Remote Mine’s body. It took me about a month to track one down, and they get more rare every year. So now that this ancient component is nearly extinct I wanted to make sure everyone could still make their own remote mine prop.
With a few components and some patience you too can make your very own remote mine prop, chock full of blinking lights and beeping sounds!
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!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
