I am always been a fan of old navigation techinque and I really like to use a Sexstant to find my position on earth. This instrument, the Quadrant, is the predecessor of the Sexstant and it really usefull if you like to calculate altitude of mountains or distance from a certain object and even to calculate your position on earth by using it in cobination with a normal clock.

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!
