Anansi's Slicer Pad with Scomplink
« on: Nov 21, 2016, 02:25 PM »
Su cuy'gar!

I'm still working on my carbine, but I have an intense need to engage multiple targets at once. That's why I am also working on a slicer pad. I don't have a lot of pictures but I promise to do better on that front.

I decided my pad should be able to use the same ports as droids and the best way to do that is with a scomplink. Let's say the droid this belonged to won't need it anymore.


It's actually the bolt and trigger mechanism from a Nerf Maverick. The link itself is just parts of the barrel rotating mechanism and a few leftover internals from the carbine project capped off with a rubber stopper. I know the policy on making weapons inert but I hope that doesn't cover extending arms. Now that the link is built, I'm going to focus on marrying it to this "datapad" I found at the thrift shop. Of course, the "screen" will be a lot different. Mostly different. I might keep a icon of a nerf or a pig. It's a WIP.


Stay tuned.

Just a thought, would a small "case" made of sintra, to disguise the base look, be something you might consider?

Not pushing you one way or another just trying to get those creative thoughts flowing  ;D

Disguise which part? I still have to patch up with holes in the scomplink housing and I'm not sure about the other side of the pad. Unless I add something on that side with other port options! This brainstorming is good! Vor'e!

The sides and whatnot, this should help with my reference.  http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Slicer/Legends

If you look up some scanners on le google, most have a raised case and the screen is lower.


Just a variant I have seen that looks similar to yours   :)

If you have an old HDMI cord or Ethernet cables they may work for "hook up options"
Perhaps a panel or two that can open and reveal circuitry for maintenance or to let the hook ups extend out?

I know it's been a long time since I've worked on this, there's one minor update. I stumbled upon a small working tablet for $5 at the local thrift store and after a little research, it can be hacked to accept custom Flash apps.


It, uh, needs a new coat of paint but once it has that, a few more greebles will have it looking proper. Also, I've got to learn Flash but that's a whole different matter.
