Suspended Circuitry: Resin-Casted Pre-Amp

A gorgeous piece of circuitry.

A gorgeous piece of circuitry.

Maker Runaway Brainz hacked pieces from a Soundblaster Live! card, combined with an amplifier and several other parts to produce this beautiful headphone amp/pre-amp suspended in resin. When originally cast, he notes that numerous things could have happened to spell disaster: The curing process could have failed, the end result could have been cloudy or contained bubbles, or even worse, resin could have leaked into the audio or power sockets suspended in time like an amber-trapped mosquito.

From skeleton to silicone, watch the full process.
