OK that was the suck.  I just lost my file.  My USB 
battery died.  I should test the capacity on that 
one.  I am now using a replacement.

So basically, I have been testing the Cybah Rig.  
During the holidays, I picked up a 4.5-20 volt 
step-up regulator from Pololu.  I am using it on the 
Cybah Rig for the face-mounted display (Olympus 
FMD-250w), which runs at 7.5 volts.  I have a 5 
volt USB battery that powers a Raspberry Pi Zero W 
and the face-mounted display.

Today, I had some time to finish up the Cybah Rig 
with the regulator so the whole thing can be 
mobile.  Not sure why, but that is now an option.  
I don't really have the mental bandwidth right now 
to write about it much so I have some pictures that 
will probably speak to the project much better than 
I could in words at this moment.  I'm pretty tired 
and also have a maintenance window to attend to 
until 3AM.

For now, here are some pictures:
