CNC Made From Garbage - All

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. The end result is a three axis cnc that can draw shapes on a wipe board. This CNC is by no means high quality. 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.

42 of the Most Useful Raspberry Pi Commands

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. Another way is to access the root command prompt, which operates all commands with super user privileges.

Most of the commands below have a lot of other useful options that I have not explained. General Commands. 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.

Using an Infrared Library on Arduino

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.

You can combine those difficult to remember long keyboard shortcuts into a single custom shortcut key, with this simple circuit. Here’s the end result:

Battery powered fog machine - All. You will need to acquire the following: - electronic cigarette kit (I advise buying extra emitters). I used a TW INTU E-cig kit, with a 5000 mAh battery, variable power up to 80 W, and a 4 ml tank. The kit that combines both these things for $65 is giving a broken link, I assume temporarily.- battery holder for 3 AAA batteries- 3 AAA batteries- 40 mm 5 V computer fan- a rocker switch- a 3D printed enclosure (see next step) Total cost <$100 if you have access to a 3D printer. You can find other e cigarette fog machine hacks online, but I experimented with them and found them noisier and less foggy than I'd like (e.g. this one that uses an aquarium pump).

How I built a keyboard by hand – Jack Lewis – Blog. I had spare mechanical keyboard switches and keycaps from other keyboard projects, and I wanted to see if it would be feasible to build a keyboard using only hand tools. I started with some aluminum sheet stock from the hardware store. It was perfectly sized to build a 5 column, 13 row grid keyboard, without any wasted space. I started by laying out where the switch holes would be cut. The holes are 14 mm squares, with 5.5 mm in between. I used a blade to scribe the layout into the metal.
