206mm Sonic Screwdriver
s_m_faulkner Just spitballing ideas here :)
s_m_faulkner They're the standard sized bits. IDK the dimensions, but I have two precision electronics / smartphone kits that use the same exact size of bits. If you combine this design with a durable 3D printing material and a universal screwdriver bit head then you've got a functioning product :D Even better would be adding an LED light to the tip of it and an endoscopy camera with a USB port in the bottom of the handle. You could turn this into its own seriously awesome techie tool. Just hollow the back of the cone head out for other driver bits like in my kit, and turn the cone into a universal driver head (like the real kind of universal bit designs that fit all heads EXCEPT slotted, which sucks the hardest of all bit heads anyway) and you've got a million dollar techie tool here that I'd love a prototype of ;D
s_m_faulkner @HOLDEN8702 I was thinking if the tip of the screwdriver was like this it would truly be a "universal sonic screwdriver" http://universalscrewdriver.com/ but the head would need to swivel so you can tork it from side to side for extra power, or have it extend down to reach those hard-to-get-at screws in narrow spots. I'm a computer tech and I have one long-necked phillips head that's been my favorite for years, but if I could combine it with this black sonic screwdriver my life would be complete at last :D
s_m_faulkner @HOLDEN8702 Well, I went back to Gallifrey and they told me that if you combine it with one of those heads with the pins that fall down to conform around any shape of screw head, like the ones they use for stripped nuts and bolts, but if you make the pins strong enough and small enough they should conform to ANY standard and it would actually function as a universal screwdriver. Just an idea - It's yours to run with if you can figure out the technical details. Maybe combine this 3D model with a bit of titanium pins or whatever you thing is strongest - like those carbide rings that diamonds can't scratch.
s_m_faulkner @HOLDEN8702 This is amazing. Do you have a demo video of how it works?
