I've got another project on the bench - whittled out of aluminum & plastic. I have the machine tools, but I'm no machinist. If I made that claim, I could say I'm a house contractor because I have a hammer. Or a photographer, 'cause I have a camera. Wait.
Anyway, I've got a video project on the way, that needs a bunch of footage shot from a boat. A moving boat. Where there might be waves. And I don't want to make the viewer seasick.
So, this gadget is a 3-axis gyro stabilized camera mount. Based on a design I did 2 decades ago when filming from RC helicopters. (It was film back then - 35mm Eyemo with 100ft film loads)
Watch this space for more to come...

She still has a photo of herself, taken by her dad, when she was about 8 years old. We tried to re-create it today, now that she's 10 times that age.
I'll have to get Dad to scan the original so I can upload it here another day.
Shot with a 7D & 24-105 @80mm, 1/250th, f4, iso 400, with a little fill from an on-board 430EX.
