Awesome place, man! I see a lot of things in Spanish. Where is this awesome space located?Hi
Here is some photos of the workstation and the entire house that I´ve been developing since I was eighteen years old, I´d like to share some of the projects and knowledge about green energy and sustainability.
I tried to capture the house exactly how it is when you arrive and get into to, the house is a little dark because is a man cave, I took maybe 10 shots to make one photo and was pretty hard to capture the vision that we have when you sit to play something or watch a movie.
I have two setups, the first one is for gaming, movie and work, the second one is for watch movie with friends and family. The entire house is powered by green energy, I have one sun water heater too for the hot water, all the house were made using recycle parts from another houses / company's. I will try to list everything that I have here, some people think that the house is not real because looks like one store or playland, the truth is that neverland from MJ was my inspiration and I´m not even close of all that...haha The house has automation for everything, I can turn on the lights, music, movie, the kitchen and even control the pressure of the water, the temp, the flow and all.
The room and the office are jumped together with cables from outside of the house, so If you want to play games in setup 2 you just need to change the monitor and audio setup. If you want to watch some movie in setup 1 from setup 2, you just have to change the entry in Denon receiver, all the house is connected together and working as it should after long years of test and programming. In the setup 1 if you want to play using TV you just change for monitor 2, if you want to use the headphones just change the audio output for Razer board, if you want to play using headphone in setup 1 with cockpit you just need to grab the second razer tiamat and plug in the Sony receiver. I´m so sorry for the bad quality of some photos, I had to use my cellphone because my lens could not take the photo so close. maybe I will do one update when I get one canon 10/22mm. me and my friends use to do some lan parties over here, there is one video of us doing one stress test with asus and the ISP. Since everything in the house has one IP and access the internet, 400MB sometimes is less for what the house want, right now the asus is showing me 5 / 6tb of traffic peer month, crazy right?
This is the electric panel of the house, everything were made by hand and with Siemens products for best quality, I use one sand fuse for setup 1 and another one for setup 2, that´s filter the noise from power surge and delivery clean energy for the entire house, also it has DPS for rain lighting protection, two grounds, even for the cable TV and telephone line.
With the red acer laptop that I use to work ( I plug it in the table and use because is more fast and easy to get out and get in when I need to do some fast jobs/projects with customers ).
This is how I use the system, almost all the lights off and just some fairy blue and warm light to keep the climate of men´s cave.
The second monitor for play games or watch movies / chromecast videos.
The couch get´s out of the room and I install the cockpit for play some games on tv, we can use the 7.1 home theater or the razer tiamat 7.1 if there´s someone in the same room using another computer / arcade and we dont want to disturber or do too much noise.
This is the back view of the couch / cockpit setup with surround speakers
This is an old project that I´ve made in the past, it uses one computer inside with hyperspin and almost 500gb of games and emulators, has built in speakers and one original CRT tube, also one coin selector that works with 25 cents.
The entry view of the house with arcade in the background and kitchen / cinema room.
This is the setup 2, the photo looks a little ''dead'' and with no life because if the poor light, sometimes is hard to take one shot of some place that is dark almost 90% of the time like one movie theater.
This is the back view of the room / kitchen, the kitchen were made with old bricks from 1960, it has automation in lights, kitchen appliances and food garbage disposal, also it uses one nest to monitoring all the activity of the place.
The stove that I did the project, less space = creativity to solve the problem.
I can take more photos of the green power station and all, but I think this is not the focus of this topic and forum.
I hope you like my hard work,
