Welcome to Fluxing!


My real name is Florian, but ever since I have been working with the german medieval rock band Saltatio Mortis many people call me Flux.

I like to build things. In many cases I just intend to get something done with as little effort as possible. But then my perfectionism kicks in and I spend endless hours on totally unimportant details. Or I start out with pretty ambitious plans, and at the end i lose my patience or I run out of time, and then I just hot glue everything, just to get it done. In short, I have a totally chaotic working style. And I like”hardware hacking” – using things differently than intended. All that is what I now call “fluxing”. And that is what my blog and YouTube channel will be about.

I have some very interesting projects coming up. I don’t want to tell too much just yet, but here are a few hints:

  • A high end gas barbecue for about 35,-€
  • A successor for my Macbook Pro: Portable, but much more powerful. And self made!
  • A slow moving camera dolly for time lapses
  • How do you film yourself twice at the same time?

For every blog post there will be a video on YouTube (or the other way around). I will try to show everything as detailed as possible to give you the chance to try it yourselves. But I will also show you you all my (many!) mistakes, so you don’t have to make them yourselves.

All blog posts and videos will be available in german and english language. In the top menu, you can switch languages in the top menu. And every video will contain a link in the top right corner to the other language.

I hope I can help you out with your own projects or inspire you to start new ones. But I am also eager to hear your advice, ideas, and criticism in the comments!
And I hope we all will have lots of fun!

  1. Hello there, I believe your web site may be having web browser compatibility problems.
    Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks
    fine however, if opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, wonderful site!

    1. Thank you!
      You are probably right. But since my blog is based on a very popular theme, probably hundreds of thousands of web pages will have the same issue. And IE is dead for quite some time now, I will put it on my to do list, but just not right at the top.
      Thank you very much for your commendation!

  2. Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but
    I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not
    sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?

    With thanks

    1. Hi!
      The easiest way would be to turn to either wordpress.com or any other web host that offers a preinstalled blog. Then you can start blogging right away.
