    Making the Perfect Camera Mount

    November 16, 2018

    It's finally fall! For everyone who was dying in the summer sun, we finally made it and get some relief from the heavy heat! To me, fall is the time for watching leaves change color, eating my share of turkey on Thanksgiving and my favorite, riding my motorcycle through the mountains! Every year I cram as many weekend rides into the Blue Ridge Mountains to see the trees and enjoy the crisp air as possible. Like many riders, I have a camera to capture all the great scenery, as well as any road hazards. I typically mount my camera on the motorcycle itself, however, that’s only because I can’t find a mount that perfectly fits my helmet.

    Star Wars has been around for as long as I can recall. Years ago, I remember watching the movies with my family, dressing up as Darth Maul on Halloween and having lightsaber battles with the other neighbor kids.

    As I got older, so did my appreciation for the movies. Each time one was released, I would go back and re-watch all of the previous films to build suspense and try to get prepared for the next big thing.

    This year, I found one more way to build excitement and prepare for The Force Awakens. I designed and built my own lightsaber in SOLIDWORKS!
