What Can I Make? That's up to you! First, load up a computer program or any webpage. Let's say you load up a piano. Then, instead of using the computer keyboard buttons to play the piano, you can hook up the MaKey MaKey to something fun, like bananas, and the bananas become your piano keys Or let's say you Google for an online Pacman game and draw a joystick with a pencil: MaKey MaKey: An Invention Kit for Everyone (Official Site)

Desarrollado en conjunto con el Instituto de Arquitectura Avanzada de Catalunya y Hangar, el DIY Urban Sensor Kit permite obtener los datos medioambientales de temperatura, sonido, luz, co2 y humedad en tiempo real y subirlos a Pachube. El kit fue utilizado por los estudiantes del Master en Arquitectura Avanzada durante el Studio I “Many Slow Cities into a Smart City”. Par ver los resultados del Studio mira este video.

Panneau Solaire :: Panneau de chauffage solaire fait en canettes

Custom Search Plusieurs facteurs font qu'entre les énergies renouvelables (et écologiques), et les énergies conventionnelles (non renouvelables et non écologiques), le choix qui s'impose est d'abord celui de l'énergie conventionnelle avec pour argument principal le prix. Par exemple, les gigantesques profits générés par les monopoles sur les réserves stratégiques de pétrole. Lisez ce document pour voir qu'une simple personne peut faire la différence en construisant un panneau solaire à l'aide de pièces recyclées. Donc vive le recyclage!

Here’s another nice use case for the µc³ r0ket: Since it features a build in 3.7V LiPo cell and a fitting charging controller the r0ket basically can be used to charge LiPo or LiIon single cell batteries found in phones, media players, cameras or even toy helicopters. After I realized that I had forgot to charge my camera and didn’t bring a charger to the easterhegg either I was happy that I already had set up one of my r0kets for charging external batteries. First you have to unplug the build in LiPo battery and attach the VCC (right) and Ground (middle) pins to the appropriate pins of the cell you want to charge. r0ket's soup r0ket's soup

Le boîtier Le boîtier ne sert qu’à présenter une surface sensible dans le champ illuminé par le sténopé. Une simple boîte fera très bien l’affaire. Toute amélioration ne sert qu’à en faciliter l’utilisation.

deba168 from India designed and built this Arduino Solar Charge Controller to provide electrical power in areas where the grid can’t always provide power when needed. Code and schematics are provided so you can get some inspiration from the design. ”At first the charge controller will check the solar panel voltage and compare it with battery voltage ,If it is greater then the Arduino will starts sending pulse width modulation(PWM) signals to the mosfet(Q1) in order to charge the battery .When the solar panel voltage was below the battery voltage ,this pwm signals will not send by Arduino . Then next the micro controller will check the battery voltage ,if the battery voltage was below 6.96 v volts then the battery will be charged in boost mode ,that mean the battery will be charged with maximum amperage ,this boost mode of charging will be done by sending pulse width modulation signals with 95% duty cycle .

How to start out with 3d printing In the first of the Personal Factory 3d printing tutorial series we’re looking at popular software packages you can use to create your designs. Not all 3d software is created alike – some is intended for creating vast landscapes, others specialise in rendering and visualisation. We’re interested in software focused on both organic & primitive geometry modeling with support for stereo-lithography (.STL) files. Thanks to years of 3d software development there are now many methods to build a 3d models, below are some of the means you may come across… Polygon - The most common modellers available, however many include support for other types of modelling including NURBS, splines, sculpting & SubD. 3d modelling software 3d modelling software
