Hactus with box

Hactus v1.0

BUY ON AMAZONSOURCE

The Hactus is a unique take on the boring prototyping boards commonly found in the DIY electronics scene. The Hactus embodies the visual of a succulent cactus by way of it’s interlocking green perfboards that fit snugly inside the included concrete flower pot. Each of the two boards has 783 ENIG Gold Plated solder points providing you with endless possibilities for prototyping your inventions. Or just keep it as is and hold some pens or pencils in its 4 sections.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, variations between items are to be expected.

Aura v1.0 Prototype 001 and iPhone X

Aura v1.0 - Concrete Wireless Charging

Crowdfunding campaign coming soon

The Aura Qi is a 10w wireless charging pad made from concrete, wood, and neoprene. It has the USB port and status LED embeded into the concrete base during the molding process. We have a working prototype proof of concept and are finalizing some sourcing of materials and finalizing our parts list. Due major changes within Voidbox throughout 2019, the Aura Qi charger has been indefinitely placed on hold as we release other products and get some existing products back into production. We’ve decided to make some changes and upgrades to the Aura before going into crowdfunding on Indiegogo. We hope to restart R&D by Spring of 2020.

Sign up to get notified when we’re ready to start our crowdfunding campaign and follow us on instagram for updates as we get back into R&D mode.



Picture is of an early prototype, final product may look slightly different - For example: final product is expected to have a status LED in the front recess.

Ultra Low-Profile USB 2.0 Header For Motherboards

Ultra Low-Profile USB 2.0 Header

BUY ON AMAZONSOURCE

A USB header for PC motherboards designed to be as minimal as possible. It may interfere with components on some motherboards. Its intended use is for keeping small flash-drives, wireless controllers, or USB license keys inside a computer enclosure.

It can also be a powerful tool for computer techs who can keep two USB tools together such as a diagnostics OS on flash drive alongside a wireless keyboard/mouse receiver.

My personal use case is in a custom built super slim NAS enclosure that runs UnRAID. My OS is on a tiny flash drive and the second slot holds a 2.4ghz receiver for a thumb keyboard/trackpad thing. All current offerings I could find were too tall for my needs or were a wired assembly, this is much cleaner.

CSR8635 Breakout

CSR8635 Bluetooth Audio Module Breakout

BUY ON TINDIESOURCE

A future product of ours is a Bluetooth headset and the CSR8635 modules are inexpensive and easily available online. Problem is that the pins are extremely small and a breakout board is required for prototyping. We have our extras that we had made in our Tindie shop, but feel free to make one yourself if you have the means. Designed in EasyEDA.
