Haha you thought it was going to be a transformer, but its actually a transformer.

I started with these images.
I had to do some reconstruction of areas behind grass and concrete.
It was a cloudy day and that box has been taunting me for several years.
Overcast sky is best for pictures.

This was exactly what I expected. It looks like its corroding or something.

Its been sitting outside for about 37 years, so its a bit rusty.
The yellowing is from years of pine tree pollen landing on it.
The side with the hinges is fairly clean because it was against a fence until about 3 years ago.

Well yeah, it's a METAL BAWKS!

The innards were probably made to be entirely replaceable.

I'll bet its the original innards too.
You can hear it humming.

The HVAC and condenser unit are also original gear.
Many of them around here have failed and been replaced, but mine is still going.
Some have also caught fire and almost burned the building down.

What do you plan to do with these digital representations of your old stuff?

I'm preparing them now to be posted on the Unity Asset Store.
Unity users can then purchase them right in the Editor.
I don't really expect to sell much, or any.

So for $5 you could have a shovel.

The store keeps 30%.

Hey somebody bought my shovel in October.
I just got the payment delivered to my PayPal account yesterday.
The list price is $5, Unity takes 30%, so I got $3.50 !!

I've never been so proud.
