The Enigma Puzzle Box - All. I now have added a locking device in the form of a solenoid. When the amber LED lights up, the solenoid pulls in its plunger from the "lock" (a piece of MDF with a hole in it) and the box opens. I have updated the images to show this change. So first off I apologize for not making a formal instructable.

When I started this project all I wanted to do was jump right in and get it done. If you have any questions regarding the box's construction, coin slot construction, or circuit design, please leave a comment and I'll try to assist you as much as possible. Also keep in mind the construction of the coin slot is not necessary, you can remove it if you don't want to make it. Also I suggest you make the box, drill the holes, stain (not really needed, but its a nice touch), then solder in the electronics. Misc: - Plexiglass or other material to make coin slot. - Stain - MDF 1/8 for lock latch. The "codes" are as follows (refer to circuit diagram): Puzzle Setting 1 (Yellow Line): B1, D2, A3, A4.

Pi Record Streamer. Web powered antique wind gauge. Portable Pen-Testing Hack Box. The inspiration for this project came from the desire to create something that would explore topics of Computer Science and Cyber Security. It also stems from the want to create a cheap tool that could be used for hackers. Essentially a inconspicous, droppable hack box. One that can perform common pen-testing attacks. Ones like, Wifi-Hacking, Bluetooth-Attacks, Password Cracking, Metasploit, and much more. The most important aspect of this project is its ability to perform well enough to be used as a simple tool for a hacker. 1 × Raspberry Pi 2 The Main Computer 1 × 7 in. Enjoy this project?

So far we have a working playback system and a functional hook switch mounted to a plastic box I've used a million times.

You pick up in the receiver, the audio starts to play, you hang it up, it stops. The plan is to mount this hook on the side of our library and anchor the cable to one of the steel posts. Nice thing about the payphone receiver is that it's very tough, and the cable has a braided steel anchor so I'm fairly confident that it will remain connected and intact even under moderate abuse. The hook is less durable, but that's part of why I wanted to go with a printed part. There's a couple of possible directions to go from here. The other area to explore is the "management" interface. The barrier with this for me is that I haven't done much webserver development in Python, and I'd prefer to stick with Python since it ships with Raspbian and performs well on the hardware.

YDE - You Do Exist. My business partners shorted my company tens of thousands of dollars and laid off my entire team, and then my cat died because I couldn't take it to the vet. I've had some time to think, and I've rebuilt my main tool in the project. Since, I've: Reconfigured Roller, updated tools, added better medium range wireless network adapter, enabled ssh, working on enabling VCN. Gained an access point by the tunnel entrance area, which means it's time to move my hardware on-site and look into remote controlling it. I chose ssh because I remember it from working on iphones back when I would install cydia on mine. New configuration includes - reaver with wpspixie attack extra antennas command line remote control via phone Identified actions that need to take place to make ANGLE effective.

ANGLE is - Multiple wireless network adapters running concurrent wireless attack scripts while being controlled on-site or remotely via ssh over VNC. Tested interface from terminal in macbook: More to follow. DIY Modular Synthesizer. ABOUT THE CIRCUITSI know very little about how these circuits actually work– 99% of the circuits come from the internet, especially the following places:– DIY forum– Lunetta forum– Nicholas Collins’ “Handmade Electronic Music” (2006)– Fun with Seamoss website (no longer up)– Hackaday Logic Noise series– Ken Stone’s Modular Synth site– Yu Synth DIY Thanks to all those folks for sharing their designs!

Please don’t look at my circuits, go see the originals. Those folks know what they are doing. My circuits are only here for reference, just to show you can build a great-sounding synthesizer with extremely primitive circuits. BUILDING THESE CIRCUITSDon’t just build these circuits– breadboard them first! I made many small modifications that may not be reflected in the schematics; also, I barely understand anything about electricity so take everything with a grain of salt.

Updated February 20, 2016 VCO (saw, square, triangle, short pulse) VCO (saw, pulse) 47 Raspberry Pi Projects to Inspire Your Next Build. If you’re looking for inspiration for your first Raspberry Pi project, look no further than the several dozen projects entered in the first ever Raspberry Pi Design Contest, sponsored by MCM Electronics. All the projects were entered into one of four categories – Artistic, Educational, Enclosure, and Utility – and are now competing for five prize packs, including a Printrbot Jr. 3D printer to be awarded to the grand prize winner. It’s been just over one year since the initial release of this single-board computer, and already makers have made some incredible projects with it. Judges are now reviewing these projects based on their documentation, project success, and unique application. The winners will be announced on or before April 25th. For my first project i wanted to make a battery powered wireless internet radio stream player.

Color My Desk is a publicly controllable string of lights illuminating my daily workspace. We designed an in-garden device to live by your plants. 1.) Building a Better Robot. On designing LEO, the walking, talking 3D printer When I began writing the first draft of the LEO the Maker Prince story, I was excited about the opportunity to create fictional robot characters. As the star of the show, the LEO robot would come to life through words and illustrations, but he would also be a 3-dimensional model that people could download and print as a memento from the book. It was quite a large creative challenge, but also one that allowed me to bring several aspects of my background together in one effort. In my work outside of the LEO project, I am a professional product designer with a specialty in smart objects and robotics. Since 2007, I’ve been collaborating with the Georgia Tech Socially Intelligent Machines Lab, a research group focused on the development of a robotic platform that can interact with humans in a natural way.

I always start any robot design project with drawings, and this one was no different, even though it was fictional. Here’s one sent by ThomF: SunBEAM Seeker Bot. BEAM robotics is a way of thinking about and building robots with roots in the “behaviorist” or “actionist” robotics movement of the 1980s. Rather than relying on microprocessors, programming, and digital logic, BEAM designs favor discrete components, stimulus-response control systems, and analog logic. From a design perspective, BEAM robotics is about getting the most complex and interesting behaviors using the simplest circuits, actuators, and components.

Therein lies the challenge. BEAM is an acronym for: Biology — BEAM robots take inspiration from nature, especially “simple” organisms like plants, worms, and insects. The SunBEAM Seeker is a very simple phototrope (meaning it responds to light) based on Randy Sargent’s classic “Herbie” design, which he originally developed for a line-following competition at the Seattle Robotics Society’s 1996 “Robothon” event. We published a more complex version of the Herbie design as Mousey the Junkbot back in MAKE Volume 02. How It Works Like this: Data Dial Dashboard. If your dials don't move into place, open the Arduino IDE's "Serial Monitor" window at 115200 baud and check the output. Here you can see status updates as the device attempts to connect to the web to download the data it needs to update the dials.

Once it has made a connection, the dial output values will also report in the Serial Monitor window. If you see the error message "Failed to configure Ethernet using DHCP," check to make sure your Ethernet cable is plugged in and your network is configured to use DCHP. If you see "connection failed," try to visit on a computer connected to the same network equipment as the Data Dial Dashboard.

If you don't have any problems opening the site this way, wait a few minutes to let the device try again. 3 Projects to Help You Fight for Your Online Privacy. Today, February 11, 2014, the anniversary of internet freedom activist Aaron Swartz‘ passing, marks a day of activism against mass National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance, dubbed “The Day We Fight Back.” Today is also nearly the anniversary (02/18/13) of the SOPA (Stop Online Privacy Act) Blackout that saw countless sites, including internet giant Google, go black in protest last year.

Today’s protest is backed by over 600 organizations, including BoingBoing, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), O’Reilly Media, Reddit, Access, Demand Progress, Fight for the Future, Free Press, Mozilla, and ThoughtWorks, and is a call for new laws to curtail online surveillance. According to the campaign, “the NSA collected 97 billion pieces of data in March 2013 alone, including 3 billion from U.S. computers” and “the NSA has built a surveillance network that has the capacity to reach roughly 75% of all U.S. internet traffic.” From the campaign site: How to Bake an Onion Pi Internet Kill Switch.

Arduino Motor Shield (L298N) ================================================================================= Introduction ================================================================================= This motor shield allows Arduino to drive two channel DC motors.

It uses a L298N chip which deliveries output current up to 2A each channel. The speed control is achieved through conventional PWM which can be obtained from Arduino’s PWM output Pin 5 and 6. The enable/disable function of the motor control is signalled by Arduino Digital Pin 4 and 7. The Motor shield can be powered directly from Arduino or from external power source. It is strongly encouraged to use external power supply to power the motor shield.

The prank box is basically a sealed wooden box with an electric bell inside that is activated by a key switch. Once it is turned on, a relay inside the box is latched and it cannot be turned off without knowing the secret trick (Spoiler Alert:magnets). Quite understandably, a completely sealed box with a ringing bell inside that doesn't seem to stop can quickly become maddening. It is very funny to watch people ponder the implications of the device, reluctantly turn it on, and then stress out when they cannot turn it off. It is even funnier to get panicked emails from your friend in Canada after you mail it to him without any explanation, and he decides to ignore the directions on the box and turn it on.

Kinect-Controlled Visual Instrument. DIY Magnetic Ink. DIY Holograms – In Full Color! We love the DIY Hologram Kit that’s available in the Maker Shed. It takes the normally complicated task of holography and simplifies it into something slightly more complex than taking a Polaroid picture. The secret lies in the unique, self developing film that Litiholo (maker of the DIY Hologram Kit) created.

The film plates require no chemicals or developing processes, just illuminate your object, expose the film, and the hologram will “magically” appear. (Yes, this is a color hologram!) Litiholo happens to have another secret, their holographic film is sensitive to wavelengths other than red. Related. Super Fast Electromagnetic Flip Dot Display. ATiny-Based Web Site Hit Counter.

Without doing the legwork, I'm pretty sure all those shows are on FM stations around where I live. Unless you are getting AM/FM confused with AM/PM, which may be evidenced by the phrases AM Drive and PM Drive in the time slots of that list, but surely that's not it... is it? If you are trying to convince anyone with that list, I don't think you are winning that argument. Everything outside of the Conservative Entertainment Foaming at the mouth shows are all on FM band and HD-FM channels where most of the listeners are. Many public radio stations run an AM transmitter simply because it's there, if the transmitters break, they go off air forever.

And the stations that play the Conservatainment junk are all robo radio stations that would be off the air if they were not all bought by clear channel and used for the lowest rating shows like that. God I sure hope not... for his sake. Ganzfeld: Hack Your Brain the Legal Way. This instructable will show you how to achieve altered states of mind surprisingly easily with the easy to make Ganzfeld mask that is better than the traditional half ping pong balls taped to the eyes. You can experience an altered state of mind and hallucination without drugs by simply depriving your body of sensory input.

This technique is completely safe and reversible. It has been used by seekers of enlightenment as far as the ancient Greeks. The adepts of Pythagoras lived in pitch black caves to receive wisdom through their visions. Arctic explorers seeing nothing but featureless landscape of white snow for a long time also reported hallucinations and an altered state of mind. In the 1930's, research by psychologist Wolfgang Metzger established that when people gazed into a featureless field of vision* they consistently hallucinated and their electroencephalograms changed. *Wearing a sleeping mask or sitting in a dark room puts the brain to sleep.
