Electronics Build Your Own GPS Car Tracking System Creating a Mini Maker Space | Parents For kid makers, having a dedicated space to work on projects can be pretty wonderful, and it just might help them create more than they ever imagined. A workspace doesn't need to be huge -- a small workbench that is efficient, compact and flexible in its use and storage can fit almost anywhere. Here are some tips on how to design and set up a mini maker space made just for your kids. Your kids can even help you set this up, though adult supervision is suggested, especially when installing the table and hanging shelving and pegboard. 1. • What general-use tools do you and your kids use for every project and should have on hand all the time? • What support materials can't you live without? 2. The surface you and your kids work on should complement your projects. • If you do a lot of woodworking, you'll want a hard, flat surface that can be replaced after it is worn, stained, sawn, and hammered. • Other questions to consider: Do you need a smooth work surface? 3. 4. 5.

Somewhat in decline as computing hardware shifts away from dedicated PCs toward tablets, phones and laptops, the UPS still has a lot of SOHO utility, and off-the-shelf AC units are easy to find. But if your needs run more to keeping the electrons flowing in one direction, then you might want to look at [Kedar Nimbalkar]’s programmable DC backup power system. Built inside a recycled ATX power supply case, [Kedar]’s project is heavy on off-the-shelf components, like a laptop power supply for juice, a buck converter to charge the 12 volt sealed lead acid battery, and a boost converter to raise the output to 19.6 volts. An Arduino and an optoisolator are in charge of controlling the charging cycle and switching the UPS from charging the battery to using it when mains voltage drops. [Thanks for the tip, Morris]
