On this page are unused objects that I want to give away for free to members of the Merveilles community that may need them. My goal is to empower our members with tools so they can achieve a greater life, improve their artistic projects, or just have fun. I prioritize people in financial difficulty or in minority groups (POC, LGBTQA+, etc.).
If one of those objects interested you, contact me on Merveilles. Shipping fees are on you, and I can send them to any part of the world (I'm in Europe).
Audigy internal soundcard
I don't remember when I got this. It's Create Audigy sound card that is at least 10 years old. It has multiple ports, needs to be plugged to a PCI port. Not tested, so no guarantee it works perfectly.
Cheap DIY PS2 arcade stick
An arcade stick made of a cheap but sturdy plastic case. The parts are Sanwa and a bit worn out, but still work. It's compatible with Playstation 2 through a hackpad. Can be plugged to a computer using an adapter (see below) but remains a bit complicated to configure. It's probably better to buy a cheap board on ali-express and put it in.
Note: if you are not interested in the case but want the part that's OK, I have some leftovers too.
Telex broadcast XLR helmet
A vintage XLR Telex helmet. Super sturdy, gives you the look of an helicopter pilot. Has a nice sound but may need proper rewiring or customization.
Macbook Pro 13 inches 2013
A second hand Macbook Pro from 2013. It has an i5, 8gigs of ram and an SSD of 256gigabytes. The screen is still sharp, but suffers from a default of conception where air bubbles came between the glass and the LCD.
It's a bit on the slow side on the last MacOS version, so I suggest using an older version, or installing linux on it.
Comes with the magsafe charger and a plastic transparent protection. I can install a distribution on it if you have a sloppy internet connection or lack USB keys.
Please consider people in dire need of a computer before asking for this one.
