New GeoPhone Project

by on Oct.31, 2010, under Equipment

So, I’ve been kicking around the idea of putting together a new GeoPhone.. that is cool and durable. The kits out there are good, but wanted some additional functionality, and the pre-built kits (assembled kits with enclosures), look pretty bad (ie: circuit board mounted on top of the unit). My first GeoPhone kit was fun and easy to put together, but in the field, it has to be handled with delicate hands (especially during storage, etc). Storing it carefully was a worry, but also the chance of someone stepping on it or kicking it was also something on my mind.

I started on my new GeoPhone project that has some additional functional features, and will be completely enclosed in a metal enclosure. I’m pretty excited about building this. Also, I’m not assembling it from a kit. In fact, I’m building the circuit board, etc. I already prototyped the circuit on a breadboard, and just finished my circuit board (acid etched and tinned).

Below is a shot of the circuit board. GeoPhone Etched PCBI’ll be creating this with super bright LEDs and enclosed in a durable metal enclosure and using high quality electronic components and wiring. Pieces are slowly coming in, and I’ll be working on assembly in the next couple of weeks. I’ll post the next build segment, but if you or anyone is interested in one of these GeoPhones, please contact me, I’m planning on building a few.
