    1. @adiwan Customs, one of the many things that are similar enough in every country to the point where you can feel free to hate them and what they stand for BEFORE learning their name in native-speak.

      So what do they hold ransom ? I think I wanna guess stuff that they think can be drone parts.

        1. @adiwan Hey that is awesome. Are you going to montage it behind your console-tv or something ?

          1. @drinkingpony This thing is ultra light. The cable will drag it wherever it wants. Also miniHDMI is prone to deteriorate when being pulled and bent silly. I need to think about printing a fixture for my miniHDMI to normal HDMI adapter to the enclosure before I can do anything else (I want it to last at least for a little bit). In the end it'll probably end up somewhere behind the TV with sticky velcro.

              Blasphemy, All cables must adhere to the power and will of the allmighty Ducttape/Ziptie/Velcro.

              Also I think I can recommend putting an extention cable into the mini HDMI thing before you put in an adapter, that will probably extend its lifespan near infinitely.
