Maverick Wallet by Brandon Stastny

With the help and pledges from all the amazing backers on my first two MostRad™ Kickstarter campaigns, I was able to launch MostRad™ globally and deliver thousands upon thousands of slim, affordable RFID protected wallets. With the help of my backers and their incredible feedback, I've hit the drawing board again and am very proud to reveal my latest design, The MostRad™ Maverick. With your pledges, we can once again bring another MostRad™ product to the market. Learn about accountability on Kickstarter Have a question? Ask a question. Login. Power in the Apocalypse (How to build a Wood-Gasifier)

Don't worry, for this project you wont need any fancy tools or equipment.

Power in the Apocalypse (How to build a Wood-Gasifier)

Just a welder, an angle grinder, an oxy-acetylene torch, and a drill, along with the knowledge of how to use them. Most of the materials used were found in friends' scrap piles so for me cost wasn't a big issue. And you can (in theory) make this to whatever size you need, so keep that in mind when gathering materials. But don't forget, whatever fuel you use has to be able to feed through the fire tube easily. The fire tube acts as a sort of dryer and hopper. The size of the fire tube governs the size of the engine you can run.

Subform: A modern tool for digital product designers by General Reactives

Over the past year of full-time, self-funded work on Subform, we've surmounted the core technical challenges. (Our video tutorials are shot with real copies of Subform.) So our biggest risk is not technical—our biggest risk is that our design process is not your design process.

Wireless Home cloud for the crowd. I spent many hours replicating other people's projects on wireless smart things.

Wireless Home cloud for the crowd

Actually so many that I wound up with an obvious conclusion: After third or forth job you find out that all of them are made on different principles using different methods and tricks, especially after you redesign and reengineer some of them. That means your universe of things becomes completely unserviceable. In other words you have to keep an enormous repository of specs and sketches. And you need more time to grapple with all your devices. Certainly some are more self-organized than I am, but for sure the majority of others in entropy response are kind of nothing to write home about. Home automation using arduino with wifi, bluetooth and IR remote control. This systems consists of 3 custom built arduino uno boards, two of which are connected to each other via I2C bus, one of which acts as a "master sender" and the other a "slave reciever".

Home automation using arduino with wifi, bluetooth and IR remote control

Home automation system can be controlled using Internet, which is achieved by using ESP8266-01 and blynk libraries. It also allows us to control the system by giving voice commands using HC-05 bluetooth module and AMR voice app. I have explained interfacing each of the components to the microcontroller. Materials needed: Rise and Run's First Album by Rise and Run. About this project Risks and challenges You'll be glad to know, Rise and Run's undivided care and attention is devoted to this ONE project.

Challenges may arise, but the band is prepared to confront them head-on to ensure punctual delivery of the album. Potential Challenges: Mastering process takes longer than anticipated and/or the CD duplication is back ordered. These unforeseen challenges may delay the reward delivery to our backers, but they will not prevent the project from finishing. OpenHAB. Android personal Home Server. Robots.

Disaster Preparedness: Communications bundle. For those unfamiliar with the phrase: it comes from poem written in 17-something-er-other by some dude (Robert Burns). The last bit of the aforementioned stanza goes, "oft do go awry. " Regardless of what you have or what you don't, having a plan in place with which to contact loved ones and gather information is an important constituent of having a solid kit.

Hey all, Just thought I’d write an update to my post “Internet connected computer controlling a dumb fan. Inefficiencies of the modern gas forced-air furnace“. It’s been a while and I’ve been busy. In that post I made the comment “Ideally, there would be a wireless temp sensor in each room, and an independent, discrete, heat source in every room that could adjust to the constant needs of the household.”.

With that in mind I started down a long road of discovery, building and hacking that lead me to where we are now, this screen shot:

The Skreens Nexus: everything you want on one display. by Skreens. FLUID - The Learning Water Meter by FLUID. Risks and challenges We fully understand that every hardware project has risks and challenges. We have mitigated risk by following a structured process to test the components of FLUID. We have put countless hours into sourcing and prototyping and will continue to focus on the enclosure (trying to combine multiple parts into one) and the software (making FLUID easier to use, smarter, and a better learner). Early on we prepared to meet these risks and challenges by bringing together a veteran team of hardware and software engineers who have years of experience in prototyping, domestic and foreign manufacturing, firmware, app development and supply chain management.

WiFi Enabled Arduino - Interfacing with web APIs. This tiny module is the ESP8266. It provides a lot more functionality than just WiFi; it is a full SoC capable of executing code. For the purpose of this Instructable we will be using it purely for its WiFi capabilities though. The ESP8266 uses a 3.3V power supply. Some people have supposedly run it on 5V, but don't risk it. This means that to "properly" use it with an Arduino you'll need to use a logic level shifter. A Homemade Wood Gasifier To Keep You With Power After The Grid Fails. After the April 27, 2011 outbreak of tornadoes in the state of Alabama, half a million TVA customers were without electric power for up to FIVE days. I have lived in the region for most of my life, and this was by far the longest period of time without power that I've ever experienced.

We squeaked by with a 350 watt inverter hooked up to my car battery and a propane grill to cook on. Ever since that experience, I have studied ways to prepare for another disaster, natural or man-made. One thing I wanted to be sure of was that we never went without power again! Power Monitor.
