automakers shared this project on Thingiverse!

Mounting an eye gaze device correctly is critical for those who use it to control their computer and to communicate. One challenge is that the monitor sometimes must be rotated to match the user’s orientation (in a bed, power chair, etc.). Many mounts for eye gaze cameras will fail when rotated, or will remain parallel to the ground (which doesn’t work).

This mount uses a “Watch Band” linkage to allow the user to move the device while maintaining the critical orientations. The holes are 4mm in diameter, and a metric M4 x 70mm pan-head screw will work perfectly

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
