Making an Audio Mixer: 20 Steps (with Pictures) Typically enclosures are made as after thoughts for electronics projects.

Making an Audio Mixer: 20 Steps (with Pictures)

In most of these projects throughout this class we will be starting with the enclosure. Not only that, I am going to show you how to build them well. There will be no soap dishes with wires sticking out of them in this class. If you want to ignore my methodology and go your own way, that is your business. However, I intend to show you how to do it correctly. First of all, aesthetics are important and you should always make things that look reasonably good. Secondly, understanding the constraints of the enclosure means that you have clearly planned ahead and know what needs to get done. Cheapest Smart Home for $38: 8 Steps (with Pictures) The Raspberry Pi Zero W does not have a header integrated but it’s very easy to add one (and you can buy it for less than $2 on Amazon).

You can solder it very easily in a minute. Camera Storage Backpack. I got my hands on a free promotional backpack and needed camera storage, so this happened.

Kaizen foam used to organize parts, grommets and paracord used to hold the large tripod. ■ Music by The Marphoi Project: ■ Kaizen Foam provided by FastCap: I start with the freebie backpack and cut the gasket things that keep the flap from opening all the way because, well, I want it to open all the way. The backpack is turned inside out so I’m able to get the exact shape of the inside of the bag. I use a piece of cardboard and trace the backpack on it. Camera Remote Footpedal: 7 Steps (with Pictures) Turn Nearly Anything Into a Speaker: 13 Steps (with Pictures) Insert the jacks into the mounting holes in the enclosure.

Turn Nearly Anything Into a Speaker: 13 Steps (with Pictures)

Make note of which jack is connected to the side of the transformer labeled "P". This stands for primary. Typically the primary is the input side, but we are actually driving the transformer backwards, so the primary side is our output to the piezo. The reason the input is the output is because of impedance, a concept we are not really covering in this class, but one particularly important when dealing with transformers and AC electronics. Long story short, impedance is kind of like resistance in AC electronics (but not exactly the same). Precision Soldering for Mortals!: 6 Steps (with Pictures) Use a DIY Proximity Sensor to Automate Your Haunted House: 6 Steps (with Pictures) In most cases you will use a microcontroller such as an Arduino to monitor the signal from the sensor.

Use a DIY Proximity Sensor to Automate Your Haunted House: 6 Steps (with Pictures)

To do this, connect the ground terminal from the sensor to the GND pin on the Arduino. Connect the 5V wire from the sensor to either the 5V pin or a digital output pin set to HIGH. Then connect the signal wire from the sensor to an analog input pin on the Arduino. The AnalogRead function measures the voltage of the signal coming from the sensor. When the voltage drops below a set threshold, the Arduino activates the your special effects. // Example Code int InputPin = 0; // analog pin 0 is the input pin int OutputPin = 1; // digital pin 1 is the output pin int val = 0; // variable to store the value read.

YouTube Subscriber Counter with ESP8266. Follow the official assembly instructions for the Feather Huzzah using female headers (or stacking headers, though you'd have to cut the long legs off) Likewise follow the assembly instructions for your seven-segment FeatherWing display.

YouTube Subscriber Counter with ESP8266

Before you dive into the code for this project, you should first make sure you've got your Arduino software set up properly to program the board you are using, which in my case involves installing the SiLabs USB driver and installing ESP8266 board support (explained in more detail in the Feather Huzzah tutorial): 5 Ways to Remove a Stripped Screw. Build a Raspberry Pi-Based Cable Shutter Release for Sony Cameras.

Replacing a simple and inexpensive remote cable release for your camera with Raspberry Pi may seem like a classic case of over-engineering, but using the tiny machine to control the camera opens up a whole new world of photographic opportunities.

Build a Raspberry Pi-Based Cable Shutter Release for Sony Cameras

Using a simple Python script, you can turn Raspberry Pi into a powerful and flexible intervalometer or trigger the shutter using sensors connected to the computer. Add to Raspberry Pi a Python-based web app, and you can control your camera from any computer or mobile device. As with any DIY electronics project, there is always a risk of damaging your camera, so proceed with caution. Easy Waterproof Clothing. 3D Printed Digital Night Vision (The OpenScope) I love light, physics, optics, and electronics.

Atom Icon by okazu - Dribbble. CNC Made From Garbage - All. Canadians produces 725 tonnes of e-waste annually. After seeing all of the electronics thrown away at my school, I am not surprised by this statistic. I believe that most thrown away electronics have a lot of hidden use. I wanted to prove this by building a machine entirely out of garbage. After looking at the electronics that I hoarded...ahem...I mean collected, I realised I could build a CNC machine.

That's right, all of the components used in this project were thrown away. How-to make a ‘usb battery’ Found out yesterday that there’s a shuffle shortage and gadget battery life can only be expected to get worse. bummer. at least you can make the most of your waiting-for-shuffle blues and solder yourself a ‘usb battery’. this little gizmo runs off a 9 volt battery and supplies your favorite little device with the proper 5 volts of mobile power. in lieu of running an ipod off of it, i tested it with an mpx220 smartphone and it should work fine with any low power mobile device that can charge via usb cable. read more for instructions on how to make your own. here’s what you need to scrounge up: 5.1v zener diode.100ohm or slightly greater resistor. all i had was a 330ohm which works. don’t try anything lower than 100ohm.9v battery connector and 9v battery.flat female usb connector that mates with your device’s usb cable. this is the hardest part to find. i tore mine off an old usb extension cable. wire it up test it try it finish the job.

42 of the Most Useful Raspberry Pi Commands. Sometimes it’s difficult to keep track of all the useful Raspberry Pi commands you use, so I created a list of some of the most common and important ones that will make using Linux on the Raspberry Pi a lot easier. There are two user “modes” you can work with in Linux. One is a user mode with basic access privileges, and the other is a mode with administrator access privileges (AKA super user, or root). Some tasks cannot be performed with basic privileges and you will need to enter into root mode to perform them. You will frequently see the prefix sudo before commands, which means that you are telling the computer to operate the command with super user privileges.

PlexiClock. First, I hope you will have a lot offun with the following instruction! I also want to thank every author of the instructions which I used to manage this! I apologize for not being word-perfect in English and if you have any question, don’t hesitate to contact me! Before you begin to work, make sure you have all the parts together. You see all of the parts which I used in the first picture and there is a list with all of the parts following. I also included some links where you can purchase the parts and some other tutorials regarding each used circuit board. How to make an EMP Jammer.


Using an Infrared Library on Arduino. IRLib not only receives and decodes IR signals but it can transmit them as well using an IR LED and a driver circuit. The library has been used to control TVs, cable boxes, DVDs, VCRs, and IR controlled toys such as helicopters and dinosaur robots. It could also be used to control some home automation devices. Some users have attempted to control air conditioners and fans however protocols used for air-conditioners are extremely difficult to implement and we have not directly supported such protocols because they are very rare. Typically the output pin of an Arduino cannot supply sufficient current to drive and IR LED so you will want to implement a simple driver circuit using NPN transistor and a 470 ohm resistor is shown here: Make sure that you get the polarity of the LED correct. More advanced driver circuit schematics are available in the IRLib manual in section 1.4 Hardware Considerations. The default timer is TIMER2 on the Arduino Uno and Arduino Mega.
