Anybopdy do their own Crafts Work?

Winter time, stuck in the house,bike finally going into the Build Bay at the shop, waiting on materials to do more on home improvement projects around the Car Port and Storage so this is what I have been doing to stay busy.

Once I get my new Beads this coming week or next things I make like this will not look so uneven. These are cheap Beads but it gave me some practice I needed to get back into the swing of Beading once again. This one will probably go on my Saddle Bags.

What do you to kill time when there is nothing else to do? Anybody else do Crafts type work?

I like to tinker around with a lot of hobby type stuff r/c trucks and electronics etc. But the closest to crafts would be messing around with my arduino, it is a small open source micro controller that you can write your own programming script for and use as a physical controller. Like freaking out the four year old by putting a servo rigged to a piece of clothes hanger with a voice sensor inside of his teddy bear so it waves to him or hugs him when he talks to it. Pretty much the sky is the limit once you get the hang of them. Almost any input sensor can be used to then control just about any output device from motors and servos to LEDs and relays etc. Pretty cool little devices, pretty cheap too. Google arduino projects and there are some pretty cool examples of what people have done with them.

I don't really, but I did hear a rumour that Prop was a big fan of Kraftwerk, apparently thats all you can hear blasting out of his shed.

I've been getting into Steampunk builds, like this-

The lighting doesn't let you see the blue plasma arcs on the screen. This is a holder for my phone, I'm working on a headset to go with it, built into a set of 1920s era headphones.
I also built the rocket packs for my "Flying Monkeys" here-


Next up is a "steam powered" bionic arm...

I can see you and your lady on your Vintage two wheeled machines with side cars for the little ones out on a weekend run through the country side in your Vintage Riding Apparel. Say late 1920's to early 1940's.

Now that would be a fun ride is an entire group of riders all on Vintage(pre 56) motorcycles in all the proper Vintage gear for their period of bike going down those long back highways and byways stopping in a town here or there.
