I used a motor from https://www.bumblebeepro.com/shop/re-254-ribbon-microphone-motor/ and wrapped the element in a thin sheet of foam, CNC milled out slots in the metal hammond project box, then covered that up with a laser-cut microphone motif and some linen to act like a pop-filter (kind of).
The whole thing needs a _lot_ of gain to sound good, and therefore needed better RF/EMF shielding than I am used to, which made up most of the annoying parts of the project -- but it was still only a single day from start to finish.
The duct tape is not an aesthetic choice (or at least, it's not _just_ an aesthetic choice). This thing was water damaged and came with broken hinges and a busted case. Tape, glue and soldering a new power connector brought it back to usable life. That feels good too. Buying someone's former e-waste and doing it back up. I'd repeat the experience but ... well I don't need another computer.

"I wear the chain I forged in life," replied Satoshi's Ghost. "I mined it block by block, and hash by hash; I coded it up of my own free-will, and of my own free-will I wore it. Is its pattern strange to you?"
Musk trembled more and more.
"Or would you know," pursued the Ghost, "the weight and length of the strong coil you bear yourself? It was full as heavy and as long as this, seven Christmas-eves ago."
Look at this beautiful thing!

Read the first three pages of this and tell me it's not a hippy alternate history free [soft/hard]ware licence.
Then just enjoy the literally cut, copied and pasted hand annotated document until you've had your fill.
