This project page provides a guide to adding both USB and a Web based User Interface (UI) to remote control socket set. In the process we will unlock even more capabilities than are available when you use the socket set as they were originally intended. Part 1 (this post) deals with the hardware, Part 2 deals with programming the chip and Web UI. It essentially builds upon this blog by [befinitiv] Radio controlled sockets are a great way to save power in your home. Devices consuming more power on standby than the sockets do can easily be switched off with a remote. » Adding web connectivity (via USB) to remote controlled sockets – Part 1 (hardware) Jake Rowan Byrne » Adding web connectivity (via USB) to remote controlled sockets – Part 1 (hardware) Jake Rowan Byrne

The AR.Drone is earth-shattering. It has blown away every drone expert we've talked to. It's not just a toy: it's a phenomenal piece of engineering that manages to solve some very difficult software problems in order to take flight. Hidden beneath the foam fascia lies some very sophisticated electronics, all of which makes flying the quadricopter very seamless. We were quite interested in seeing exactly what components Parrot used to make their awesome flying device. Parrot AR.Drone Teardown Parrot AR.Drone Teardown
Sensu artist brushes are the ultimate tools for digital artists. They deliver an authentic painting experience on your tablet or smartphone. Over the years, we’ve developed a lot of artist brushes and have learned tons from some of the best brush makers in the world—careful craftsmen who understand the subtle properties of hair taper, flexibility, and strength. We’ve applied this knowledge to the creation of these unique tools.

mmmonkey Blown SNES fuse repair Before you take your Super Nintendo to pieces, you should ALWAYS switch it on after you have unplugged it from the wall. You'll notice that the power light flashes for a split second, this is the console discharging, some people say you need to leave the On/Off switch in the On position for quite a while before dismantling it - this is up to you. If you have started soldering in your SNES without discharging it, chances are you won't be able to switch your SNES back on again, it'll be dead! You've probably blown the internal fuse, which is easy to replace. mmmonkey Blown SNES fuse repair
The BTKeychain The BTKeychain The BTKeychain is just what its unimaginative name suggests: a keychain with a Bluetooth interface. It's a device I created to solve a problem my wife has: she never remembers where she put her keys. In addition to the Bluetooth interface, the keychain also has a buzzer and a small battery. The Bluetooth interface is always discoverable.
I figured I should finally share the dissertation I produced for the Picopter project. It outlines the design of most of the platform, going into greater detail in regards to the design and implementation of the quaternion extended Kalman filter I implemented. I'd be happy to answer any questions in regards to this filter. The Design and Implementation of a Robust AHRS for Implementation on a Quadrotor I finally managed to get access to a decent camera on a day with good weather! The following video is mostly demonstrating the quadrotors stability under the new four-state Kalman filter I have implemented, that estimates both the current pitch/roll and two gyroscope biases.

amelia marzec | re-wired Re-wired is is a wearable device that translates ambient sound into haptic feedback using bone conduction technology. Description I first became aware that experiencing sound through bone conduction was possible when I lost hearing in one ear due to a tumor (acoustic neuroma). One of the possible ways to "fix" monophonic hearing is to drill a screw into the skull and attach a receiver to it, such that sound waves are converted into vibrations in the skull. amelia marzec | re-wired

Converting an Inkjet Printer to Print PCBs

Recently one of my focuses has been to find a way to make the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) creation process easier. I like being able to design something based on what I want in a circuit and just making it myself on the random weekend. While the toner transfer method has been my go to in the past it’s just not nearly as consistent as I would like it to be. The specific pressure of the iron and timing both make it a hit or miss approach. I’m not a fan of hit or miss I like to know something is going to work every time I try to do it.

[UPDATE] This project has been built and is in daily use. Some finishing touches remain to be done.Circuit drawing, as-built (now shows fuses)Project circuit notes (These are .pdf files; you'll need Acrobat or another .pdf reader to view them) These are a serious circuit diagram and detailed notes. Plan on much more than a quick look if you're interested in building this or something similar. See this post in this thread for project pics. This thread is a spinoff from a discussion in the Alternator vs. no alternator thread. I had a few posts there, starting here: Test: Alternator vs. no alternator = 10% MPG gain @ 70 km/h Civic EPES: Alternator Delete Project (with additional lithium battery...) - Fuel Economy, Hypermiling, EcoModding News and Forum - EcoModder.com

Descriptive Camera

The Descriptive Camera works a lot like a regular camera—point it at subject and press the shutter button to capture the scene. However, instead of producing an image, this prototype uses crowd sourcing to output a text description of the scene. Modern digital cameras capture gobs of "parsable" metadata about photos such as the camera's settings, the location of the photo, the date, and time, but they don't output any information about the content of the photo. The Descriptive Camera only outputs the metadata about the content.

Coin Acceptor – Programmable 1 Coin Type. Your project may be free-as-in-speech, but that doesn’t mean it has to be free-as-in-beer. This handy coin validator/acceptor module is just like the ones you’ve seen in arcades. How-To: Electronic Piggy Bank (video)
