Meet my mate ‘Mavo’

Right, Game on. I’ve bought a new toy thats the perfect sized travel companion. This is the DJI Mavic Pro and its the drone I’ve been waiting for. Weighs under 1kg and folds up small enough to fit in a suspiciously large pocket or maybe just a backpack. Either way I hope Mavo here will stick by my side and explore the world with me.
The blogs been pretty dormant recently, only because I have been out and about across asia and Aus taking heaps of photos, videos and well yeah il admit, a bit of sleeping too while i could have been editing. ย BUT with this guy in my arsenal I promise il come back with more posts, more edits and definitely more angles.

Catch ya soon.

#Day70 #365JosHappyDays – Heart attack ended, I found my sd card!


Well surprisingly filled up this 64gb card and then I managed to go loose it or at least thought I did. At this point all I could think about is all the memories lost. (I rely on photos, videos and my blog, it can transport you back to the moment and activate all that lost euphoria, most effective form of time travel I’ve found yet ha)

When somethings not in my possession and I’m too far away to look for it I end up in some kind of purgatory state of both reluctant acceptance and hope, it feels like ‘schrodinger’s cat’ it’s both lost for eternity and safe somewhere. And luckily in my case after few days of this wondering I found it tucked away at my aunts.

But also I while we’re both here I would just like to say that card reader is so handy! If you can’t tell from the picture is has the micro USB port for my phone and then regular USB port for the computer.ย  Makes editing so much easier and quicker for me as my old phone didn’t have a sd slot. However only downside is its so damn tiny! I’ve now attached it to one of those neck landyard things so I can actually see it if it falls on the floor.

#Day36 #365JosHappyDays – The Power of Music


Love it, out on the streets of Tokyo with a mission and no time to spare. Whack on some drum an bass and I find myself running everywhere, even up big flights of stairs with plenty of energy to spare. Gotta love the power of music aye! ๐Ÿ˜€

#Day34 #365JosHappyDays – Magical lip cream


This stuff saved my day! So apparently it’s real important to have a humidifier during the winter or the aircon will dry my lips as crispy as I like my bacon. Not a fun day when you live in fear of opening your mouth to much because of a cracking lip but lucky I found this stuff and by morning I woke up with ‘Perfect Moist Lips’  aha ๐Ÿ™‚

#Day29 #365JosHappyDays – 3D Printing Win!!


Love this sooo much! Right so not only does is that little super tool useful for sanding down and taking off the the excess plastic of a 3D print but it can put it back on too! So happy to find out the tool is spot on the same size as the filament we use so I just slide it in, crank up the rpm and the plastic friction welds both bits together.

In this case we cracked part of the hand forcing a pin in to hard but I’ve just used some spare white filament and tested out joining back together and it worked a treat ๐Ÿ™‚

.. I may have spent the end of the day just experimenting putting in different filaments and colouring things with my new hot gooey plastic pen ha,ย  great fun!…ย  *Also dangerous if it’s unbalanced and high rpm haha I soon put the goggles on ๐Ÿ˜‰

#Day19 #365JosHappyDays – ‘Tokyo Hands’ Store, Engineers Dream


This place is incredible!  They have so many of all the crafty things I’ve wanted all in one place and more than I’ve seem before!  From Robotic gears to mini band saws, crazy driftwood,  fabrics foams and carbon fibre everything!  And that’s only the basement,  it’s a full department store with bikes, baths and bedding too.


They even have a range of tools out for you to try,  unheard of in the UK but British would royally use it to cut off its own chain and steel it.. Haha

#Day16 #365JosHappyDays – New Office Toy

#Day16 #365JosHappyDays  –  New Office Toy


Do love a good gadget and this is making the fine tuning a piece of cake. Think of it as a mini drill or grinder with many more mini capabilities. I have one of these at my workshop back home but I’m loving this Japanese one, I can definitely feel that weighty quality to it.


Above we have the first baby hand and the bigger one to test on my hand. Called the raptor hand and part of amazing Enable project which I shall explain soon ๐Ÿ™‚

Pretty chuffed with my last minute bodge job.My selfie stick needed a wrist strap so I managed to make one by chopping up a bolt, roughing it up and melting on some paracord. Got my remote on there too , should do the trickย  nicely ๐Ÿ™‚

… Going to miss being able to use all the tools in my room once I’m gone though, best move on to developing some bushcraft skills!
