Do it yourself (DIY) est une appellation, dont une traduction littérale en français serait « Faites-le vous-même », « Faites-le par vous-même »

FlatFab. High-Power Control: Arduino + TIP120 Transistor. Up until now, we have talked about working with a lot of low-power devices.

High-Power Control: Arduino + TIP120 Transistor

Sensors, LEDs, ICs, and the like are all capable of being powered directly from your Arduino, but as many awesome 5 and 3.3v components as there are, eventually you will find yourself holding a 12v solenoid, motor, or light and wondering “How the heck am I supposed to control this from my Arduino?” Well today we are going to talk about doing just that from a magical device know as a transistor, specifically the TIP120 Darlington Transistor. The reason I’m covering this particular transistor is because it is readily available, and you can usually pick one up from Radio Shack, Adafruit or other local parts store in a jam, but you can use any NPN darlington transistor like the BD651 exactly the same way.

How this works WARNING: I am about to simplify the crud out of this, so beware… it is here in an attempt to explain, in simple terms, what is going on. Hooking it up / What’s the diode used for?

In this post I describe how I made a USB smartphone charger for a hub-dynamo-equipped bicycle.

The idea came from multiple sources, including Mr. Howdy,, and Peter. But they assume the person making the charger knows how to read a circuit diagram. I cannot understand a circuit diagram. If you’re like me, then this blog post is for you. The rundown: Total cost: approx. What this device doesWhen charging your smartphone using a wall charger or your laptop’s USB, the electricity going into your phone is direct current (DC) at 5 volts. Disclaimer: I know nothing about electronics. Update (2014/06/08) – Thanks to commenter Prashant, I’ve just found out that you can buy a perfectly good charger for only US$30 or so: The Biologic ReeCharge Dynamo Kit. Update (2014/09/21): Note Viktoras’s comment that the Biologic Reecharge may not give enough output for some devices.

PHOTOS. J'ai construit ma "tiny house", 14 m2 sur roues. Je gagne du temps et de l'argent

Designer de formation, je me suis lancée un défi un peu fou : réaliser une des toutes premières "tiny houses" de France. Une "tiny house" est une "toute petite maison" la plupart du temps sur roues. Il s'agit d'un logement de plus en plus répandu aux États-Unis, mais encore peu connu dans notre pays. J’ai appelé ce projet "Baluchon", car mon nouveau logement est petit, qu’il ne contient que l’essentiel et que je peux l’emmener partout avec moi. DIY: Glass Bottle Cutter. Réaliser une maquette architecturale (carton plume, bois, etc ...) De nombreux architectes ou modelistes d'architecture utilisent le carton plume et le balsa pour réaliser des maquettes de constructions à échelle réduite.

Réaliser une maquette architecturale (carton plume, bois, etc ...)

La réalisation de maquettes fait partie du processus de conception abordé en STI2D, et elle figure au référentiel. Elle permet : de tester des propositions de conception dans l'espace, sans recourir au logiciel 3D. de présenter des choix retenus de tester des comportements complexes à simuler par ordinateur (reflexions lumineuses, ombres portées, trainée aérodynamique ...)
