Sometimes it is all about doing fun stuff: to carry and store the tinyK20 (NXP/Freescale Kinetis K20) boards needed for next course, I wanted to build something geeky: a MUFG capsule to store and duplicate Kinetis boards 🙂
If you are not familiar with the MUFG Capsule: this is a special and very rare container in Ingress: you can store and carry items in this capsule, and over time the capsule will create some interest. The name ‘MUFG’ stands for Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, a bank in Japan. So as with real (??) money on a bank account, items in that container duplicate with with an interest rate :-).
So why not creating a real MUFG capsule and see if I can duplicate NXP Kinetis boards in it? ;-). I have used a model available on Thingiverse.
In the 3D model the hinges are separate from the lid and the capsule:
Printing was with 100 microns, 20% infill and zero support structures:
Here with the finished lid:

For the side stripes I have glued iridescent foil on foto paper:
Cut into stripes and glued on the side of the capsule:
Here the finished capsule which has space for up to 40 boards:
Now lets close the capsule, wait some time and check if items in it have duplicated 🙂
Happy Duplicating 🙂
Update: after 3 days, I opened up the capsule and counted the boards in it. Now I have one board more (41) 🙂 I’m not sure if I counted them wrong when I have put them into the capsule, who knows? 🙂
