In my quest to make the World’s Smallest Donkey Kong Arcade Cabinet, I needed to tear down the 2018 Hallmark Keepsake Donkey Kong arcade cabinet Christmas tree ornament and see how I could use the shell to house my electronics. In this video, you’ll see the complete process (including a lot of trial and error) as well as what makes this “magic” ornament tick!
They’re sold out from Hallmark, but you can try the usual suspects:

Clem Mayer challenged me to add more useless “functionality” to the “Most Useless IoT Device Ever” on Element14 Presents. I picked up these bits from the cutting room floor, dusted them off, and present them to you now.
For a Very Special Element14 Christmas, I’ll be building a project using one of Hallmark’s Keepsake ornaments. But first, I’ve got to open them up and have a look at how they work. In this video, I’ll be unboxing as well as reviewing the Donkey Kong and Legend of Zelda 2018 Hallmark Keepsake ornaments, showing their functions, and giving my initial thoughts.

With this PlayStation Classic unboxing video, we’ll be taking a little trip down memory lane, reminiscing about gaming in the mid-1990s, and exploring the pros and cons of the hotly-debated system. Later in this series, we’ll be tearing down the console before hacking it to “fix” many of the alleged problems with the aggrieved PlayStation Classic.
If you are a gamer of a certain age, I highly recommend picking up a PlayStation Classic on Amazon and subscribing as we proceed to hack it into the device it should have been! https://amzn.to/2Eyceww
The Duratool TC-110 tool case from Newark element14 is a great, inexpensive, heavy-duty case for transporting small hand tools and test equipment. It’s made of a lightweight MDF shell coated in textured, heavy-duty ABS plastic and accented with brushed aluminum on the corners to provide extra protection against bumps and dings. Inside, there is a large cushion of perforated foam that can be cut to custom size and shape for any variety of instruments while the lid is complemented by a solid piece of egg-carton foam and a removable pallet for small hand tools. For the price, it may be one of the best tool cases on the market!
