Make Your Own Motorized Camera Slider

In this project I will show you how I repurposed two old camera tripods in order to create a motorized camera slider. The mechanical system consist mostly of aluminium and stainless steel which makes the slider sturdy and pretty decent looking. The electrical system consists of an Arduino Nano with LCD, rotary encoder, limit switches and stepper motor. Let's get started! Step 1: Watch the Videos! https://yo ...

Homebrew Multimode Digital Voice Modem adapter

During experiments with digital voice mode in hamradio I discovered a nice project describing an adapter for D-Star, DMR and other digital modes based on an Arduino Due and a little PCB to be put on top. This unit is called the Multimode Digital Voice Modem or MMDVM (see [1]). It seems that this is getting quite popular because hard- and software is Open Source. The units can be ordered from Bruce, VE2GZI f ...

Review: ScanaQuad – a super-small logic analyzer

If you are mainly involved in designing or repairing digital devices, a logic analyzer is more useful than an oscilloscope for tracing signal through circuits. However, does this mean you should rush out and buy a logic analyzer? The instruments from the leading manufacturers are too expensive for home use or startup businesses, and the low-cost alternatives don’t do what you want or have half-baked softwar ...
