Nerd Alert Computer Consulting's Research Into Futuristic Concept Integration, and Implementation This is a presentation to explain the concepts of what is in store with your continuous motivation and support. Thanks you for choosing to go even further and this can only get better.


What is Nerd Alert Computer Consulting?

Nerd Alert is my firm that is actually trying to make a difference in everyone's life by making things simple. Innovative, and most of all cost efficient. With your help we hope to inspire you to see the scope of innovation that could be used to further others with this benefit. It would save money and as well it would cause a tremendous message to the villainous corporations that seek to bleed you dry of your money. I wanted to make things that would benefit the household of the average man with the tech that would be useful to the average needs. So what I have devised is a firm to handle all of the needs of basically everything that I need to make these devices not only a possibility but a actual working concept.

The core idea of this whole venture it to improve the quality of doing things yourself. I honestly advocate to incorporate a little bit of tech to all the things that it can be applied to. I have always had a means to tinkering and becoming educated in matters of these sorts of things due to the lack of modern resources. Yet from tinkering I found ways to not only educate myself on electronics, and software, but to actually apply them in ways to improve upon everyday life. With this presentation I will showcase to you what I found to be things that I consider to be the tools to get us as a group to the next level of production for the Tank section of Research and Development. The idea of this whole project isn't to be a villain. It's to be a hero.

Project Black Box Finally Finished, and Out of Prototyping.

This is where the "Black Box Project" started. I know that is a ominous name for something that has so much to offer. To say the least when it comes to your enjoyment and privacy. I think that since providers are doing a really bad job at collecting and outputting all your content on the means of you have it at your disposal. No hassles when you connect and none of the hassles on conventional means of interacting with the device. The Black Box was designed to showcase the innovation of major solution of what none of the cable providers can achieve. A means to actually save you money. Yes that is correct. With this device you can now call you local cable services, and tell them you won' t be needing nothing but the internet from now on, and I will explain it all here now and why. First with the BLACKBOX PROJECT.

What I have done here basically is really I have figured out a way to implement these parts into a fully functional device that can do a number of creative and unique things. The implementations are endless with a little time and patience.

Many of the hassles of enjoying your favorite shows is that you honestly don't have time to even consider watching them with the troubles of daily routines that may interfere. Then it is also to consider the whole inflation of cost for local cable or satellite service providers to even cut you a affordable deal. That along with internet averages a honest home at least $179.00 in that basically for a decent package to enjoy just most of the premium content that you might be missing if your services don't even have your channels that you like as mine.

The BLACKBOX was the first of the innovative ideas that we currently are finding better ways to make better. The many perks of having a device like this are simple.

You can enjoy the privacy of VPN integration to surf the web anonymously without anyone being able to see your location. This is good for speed, and security as well. This also avoid ads, and spam that could ruin your internet experience as well. Ad, and hassle free.

You never have to sign up for anything. Just plug and play. No other app screen. Nothing... Just hook the BLACKBOX up to your TV via HDMI and enjoy once connected to your network. It's that simple.

You can watch any movie or TV Show free using our favorite Fork known as SPECTO. This will allow you to still watch your favorite networks, and even movies that are fresh on the internet. Movies that might even just be released in Theaters. All for one payment. No monthly subscriptions. The only bill you will have is really your internet.

Small compact design with modern ideas in innovation is what we honestly look forward to. Using the latest and greatest in opensource technology we have thought of everything down to the rechargeable remote that comes with it a fully integrated keyboard, and touch pad. If you are a more traditional user we can even provide a more simple remote as well.

What I found to put together
Raspberry Pi

The Pi is the core of the build. It is the mini computer that comes as the main component of the Box. It is powered by a 5 volt USB Mini charger. It has built in Bluetooth, and WiFi capabilities. 1 GB of RAM. A SD Slot for image installation. A HDMI port for output, as well and a AV jack for both sound and video as well. GPIO pin outputs, and a few slot for proprietary hardware like the Pi Camera, and other sensors that you can integrate. The possibilities are endless with this little device and it is still getting better as the tech improves. This is in my opinion the best maker board with the most support. That is why I chose to use it instead of others in the same price range.

Running the Pi without Cooling.

Running any kind of computing tech you will need active cooling. The test that I have conducted shows that the Pi will reach a really high temp if you can over clock them. The thing is that we don't need to over clock them to do the simple things that we require it to do. For applications like KODI, and RETROPIE the computer consumption is really love. Mostly the mini computer is actually doing things that simple devices do. Like act as a Blue Ray Player, or a old gaming console. So the heat wouldn't really matter just we can't have a bare board. So we can assume adding a board into a case will cause heat to build around the operating board. This is why I would include heat sinks to the board to induct heat away from the CPU, and GPU for better performance and cooling.

Heat sinks installed.
Heat sink proof that cooling helps and is applicable.
Black ABS Case

This is the common case that can be designed for the Pi, but the only thing is that it can and will increase in cost due to the growing popularity of the Pi in sales. This is the best example of the most common going into production as of now. I think that it is a great market to center in on right now especially due to the growing demand in custom installs. It comes with a fan that you can install on the board of the Pi to run while it is operational. The fan helps the PI maintain a cool working temp for optimal working performance.

The other things that would be needed are just your SD Card the micro one that can fit a cell phone. You will also need a 5 volt USB mini adapter and you should be able to fine a Wireless Remote along anywhere. That is the basic things that I found to make a box that will allow you to watch anything you can imagine for free, but you will need the programs to do so I will explain that process as well just right now I want to show case the hardware as a point of scope.
Bringing Old School Gaming Back with Swag
Other Ideas around this same tech is the Retro Box. A video Game Console that will allow you to play all your old favorite retro consoles all on one small design.

I'm now in the final phase of the development of the Retro Box Project. I have found many ways to use this as it has a lot of cool emulators to play with. It was always fun to go down memory lane when thinking of games that I used to play with my family and friends. I have made a complete library to include not just some of your favorite gaming titles for retro consoles like NES, SNES, and the legendary SEGA Genesis, but I have managed over the years to gather every single title for all the named console. With more games, and consoles to be added later in updates.

Enhanced Features of the box allows it to utilize existing HD signals with the additions hardware added to your one time purchasing bundle. With this bundle you will never have to worry about your visual media entertainment ever again as long as you have your internet connection you can enjoy all the perks of owning your own BLACKBOX.

Cost for the entire project at a average on order.


Cost after implementing, installation, and customization


Imagine paying that for entertainment as a one time payment with lifetime support for life. 450.00 is all you pay for a lifetime of free local cable with the ease of innovation like you never seen it all before.

This is including the cost of one BlackBox, Plus all the Needed Hardware to Add the HD antenna array. HD Cable converter can work up to two boxes. Two per cable box. Network connectable. All safety and security features installed met local codes for prevention.

Phase Two: Production

The Average Cost to Build A Box Currently

Pre Programming Basic Part Average


After programming, and hours invested in customizing


With a profit that averages $65.00 per box sold.

Now we need to make things ourselves.

Cutting cost with adding more innovation.

3D Printing???

What the hell is that?

The TEVO Tarantula
The TEVO Tarantula

This is by far the best one that I can find for the cost, and flexibility of a printer. It may be a lot of them out there, but this one is the only one that I have seen that is really a cool idea. It is faster than the one in the video. The video was meant to show you first hand what a 3D Printer was capable of doing and to educate you on the scope of the technology.

This will allow for more custom designs and the ability to make our own cases with custom layouts.
$205.00 US Dollars
$402.00 US Dollars
Make everything in the computer to print.

The applications to the this emerging technology is amazing. I would like to implement this into the RD Tank and have it around for making the custom cases for the Black Box Project to make a better concept for making a better Brand for the Flagship Device. With this we can make the design using


Glow-in-the-dark filament is a great product to decorate children's bedrooms, from glowing light switches to a starry sky on the ceiling. Your prints will shine brightest immediately after turning out the lights, but dim quickly to a soft glow in the night. Use your normal print settings for PLA or ABS (depending on which is the base filament), but add more perimeters to your prints. The more perimeters, the more glow. Be aware, we have seen reports that Glow-in-the-dark filament is abrasive and has worn out nozzles; you may want to install a hardened steel nozzle to prevent wear out. Glow-in-the-dark filament is available with a PLA filament base and ABS filament base in both 1.75mm and 3mm diameter sizes. Glow in the Dark NinjaFlex (TPU) is available in both 1.75mm and 3mm as well.

NylonX Polyamide

NylonX 3D printing filament is an amazing, reinforced nylon filament. By adding micro-carbon fibers to nylon, you get a tough filament capable of printing parts with stiffness, impact resistance, and high tensile strength. NylonX filament is an engineering grade filament, ready for home 3D printing, which gives you the durability of Nylon combined with the stiffness of carbon fiber. The best part of NylonX is that the carbon fiber adds stability and rigidity, so parts are much less likely to warp than with standard nylon. With a unique matte black finish, NylonX eliminates post-print processing. Finished prints can immediately be moved to production with no sanding, polishing, scraping, or pesky acetone vapor baths. If you are already printing with Nylon, it's time to upgrade to Nylon X. NylonX is available in both 1.75mm and 3mm. For tips and tricks on 3D printing NylonX, check out A Closer Look at 3D Printing with NylonX.

ColorFabb nGen

ColorFabb nGen is the perfect filament for beginners or those who don't want to constantly refine print settings. Because this material prints well at a wide range of temperatures and speeds, you can spend less time refining your settings and more time printing. nGen flows very well through the print nozzle and does not clog often. This filament is great for creating durable parts while avoiding print failures and the need to adjust print settings. nGen has the astounding ability to print parts with many bridges successfully where other materials have failed. Additionally, nGen has a very opaque and crisp looking appearance when printed. Although best printed on a heated bed, BuildTak or a similar adhesive can minimize warping. nGen is available in a variety of colors in both 1.75mm and 3mm.

Wood Filaments

LAYWOO-D3, ColorFabb's Woodfill series, and Timberfill are wood-like 3D printer materials that give 3D printed objects the look and feel of fiberboard. They imbue parts with other wood-like attributes, such as the ability be cut, painted, and sanded. These filaments use PLA as their base, and mix other materials (usually in powder form)into them. The PLA gives the 3D printer compatibility and ease of use while the material contributes to the look, feel, and properties of the filament. With Woodfill, LAYWOO-D3, and Timberfill, you get the color and texture of real wood with your finished prints, but with Corkfill, you get the added benefit of its light weight. With these organic fills, be cautious of too high of a temperature, as it will result in the wood burning which will give you a darker colored print. It is important to remove the filament from the extruder fairly soon after finishing a print, as the filament will begin to burn in the nozzle and start to clog it. These filaments are all available in both 1.75mm or 3mm unspooled and spooled rolls.


LayCeramic filament is clay engineered for 3D Printers that can be used to make ceramic objects. LayCeramic has all the capabilities of normal clay including the ability to be fired and glazed to give it a nice glossy look and increase strength. 3D Printing with LayCeramic will require a few additional upgrades to your Printer including a full metal hotend, a filament warmer (LayCeramic is brittle), and a kiln which isn't necessary, but part of the clay sculpting process. LayCeramic filament is available in 3mm.

Carbon Fiber Reinforced PLA

Proto Pasta Carbon Fiber Reinforced PLA filament provides excellent structural strength and layer adhesion with very low warpage. Due to the carbon fiber contained in the filament, it has increased rigidity, therefore increased structural support is built right in. The carbon fiber in the filament is specifically designed to be small enough to fit through the nozzles, but long enough to provide the extra rigidity that makes this reinforced PLA necessary for any hobbyist that needs rugged prints. Carbon Fiber filament is perfect for printing items that should not bend, such as: frames, supports, propellers, and tools. Drone builders and RC Hobbyists love this filament, and it is made in the USA. Due to its high abrasion, before printing you will need to install a hardened steel nozzle on your printer. Carbon Fiber Reinforced PLA is available in both 1.75mm and 3mm.

Conductive Filament

Conductive Filament is a modified PLA, designed for low voltage and low current circuitry. This conductive PLA filament will print objects that are more flexible than normal PLA but have less layer adhesion. In addition, this filament works with all PLA compatible 3D printers. Conductive PLA filament is available in 1.75mm and 3mm.


LAYBRICK is a 3D printing material that gives parts the look and feel of grey stone while retaining the resiliency of plastic, making it ideal for landscape and architectural designs. Anything made with LAYBRICK can be painted and sanded. In the lower range of 165°C to 190°C, the print will come out mostly smooth, whereas with higher temperatures it will begin to have a more pitted, sandstone-like texture. LAYBRICK is available in both 1.75mm and 3mm unspooled rolls.

With this I plan on cutting the cost of the price of the Boxes by having the capabilities of making our own cases for the box custom to the scope of the design of the products we want to showcase. That is the point of this presentation it is meant to inspire and show you the inner ideas of what we have our targets on in implementation of these concepts in our firm for future development in products that we want to offer and design.

3D Renders of the new Cases that I had in mind of implementing. This is what will actually be used to make the prints.
Real 3d printed custom case for better air flow.
Conceptual Video Game Console Design

Once mastered having a 3D Printer would save more time and money than the traditional method I currently use. This would help to get a lot of things in house. Plus to work with other ideas that would also benefit clients that consult with us.

With further support from you I know that it would make this into a more diverse project to get involved with and the implications are there. The software is already obtained and i have been training with it all. Can you imagine having a number of these printers all working on on multi part project or making a bunch of them at once? It would save a large amount for me in production due to the cost of shipping and handling. Time wasted in parts arriving. Testing, and programming. Cases, and other concepts can even be made as well.

Thanks so much for your support.
