Vlog: an updated exoskeleton for my finger.

I’ve completed another version of the 3D printed exoskeleton for my hand project. I took the design of my initial version and improved upon it. I’ve gone from having an about 50% range of motion to now going to about 85%.

I’ve put together another vlog going into a bit more detail about my hand project and what I’ve created to date.

The 2015 Quiring Family Christmas Holidays

The Christmas holidays this year were not quite as exciting and adventure packed as they were last year, but it was still nice to spend time with the whole family. I brought my fancy camera along and snapped a few photos.

Things got rather exciting Christmas Eve.

Perhaps doing some strengthening exercises should be in my New Years resolutions.

On one of the final days of the holidays, I had the family over for brunch. Liam them improvised on my longboard.

Moving on. Getting rid of the old.

Moving on and getting rid of the remaining Lilyboys shirts

Roughly two years ago about this time I started a t-shirt business. How hard could it be to design some graphics, get the shirts screen printed and then start selling? I like motorcycles so I decided to focus on that market and my boss had a ready to go brand (Lilyboys) that I could use.

Ultimately it failed. It didn’t come from an authentic place. The true passion just wasn’t there. So I gave up. I don’t really wear graphic tees so how could I be passionate enough to sell them?

I’ve held onto the remaining inventory. But over the past few months I’ve been seriously thinking about my future. What do I want? I decided a good place to start was to get rid of the past. So I packed up my remaining gear and brought them to two Value Villages in Toronto.

When you’re young, you have no money but all the time

bed-area

I am slowly evolving this little studio apartment into my oasis. I want quality items but I cannot afford them at retail prices. So I'm using my time to find them used, one at a time.

I've also started grow herbs. Cooking helps bring pleasure into the space.

Using materials from the world of props

Until now, I have completely overlooked the world of prop making and cosplay. This is a world dedicated to making “modifications” to the makes complete sense for my project. But then this wouldn’t be a journey if I had thought of it right away, right?

Here is my first attempt with mouldable plastic.

I am part of a hip hop podcast

The Limelight Lowlifes Podcast by Cubosa Parmigiana, 2Trill Cirill and Cornelius Quiring
