Voltlog #269 – 11.11 Shopping Suggestions For Makers

Welcome to a new Voltlog, it’s November and that means the biggest shopping event happening in Asia is coming up, I’m talking about the 11th of november. There are some numbers published for last years event and it seems they registered more than 30 billion in 24 hours in sales, yes you heard right, billions. So it’s a very big event with nice discounts and opportunities for makers like us to get some new gear. That’s why I prepared this video which will be published 1-2 days before the event so you can get some ideas of stuff that you could purchase. I assembled a list, these are products that I’ve tested and used myself which I think are good value for money and a nice addition to any hobbyist lab.

Voltlog #154 – Making My Own Trezor Crypto Hardware Wallet

In this video I’m gonna show you how I build my own Trezor hardware wallet. If you would like to support the voltlog channel checkout the donations page where you will find my paypal address or different crypto wallet addresses.

If you encounter this error while trying to compile trezor firmware:

Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "nem_mosaics.py", line 6, in <module>
 from google.protobuf import json_format
ImportError: cannot import name json_format
Makefile:121: recipe for target 'nem_mosaics.h' failed
make: *** [nem_mosaics.h] Error 1

It can be fixed by installing googleapis-common-protos package like this:

sudo pip install googleapis-common-protos

This fix was posted in the comments section by a viewer, I verified and it works.

Voltlog #149 – BigClown Premium Multi Kit Unboxing

Welcome to a new voltlog, today we are doing an unboxing of the BigClown multi kit which comes in this rather interesting red clown suitcase. I’ve tweeted a photo about this and said that it’s one of the more interesting packaging methods I’ve seen in a while, it just looks good and it’s original.
