A RETRO TOUCH PAD YOU CAN USE ON MODERN COMPUTERS

As [Jan Derogee] explains in the faux-retro video after the break, drawing on classic 8-bit computers was something of a pain. The rudimentary light pens and joysticks of the 1980s allowed for free-form input, but were clumsy and awkward to use. Which is why he set out to create an ideal drawing device for the C64 using modern electronics. For the sake of completion, he also gave it a USB HID mode so it wou ...

3W 4’x4′ Arduino Laser Cutter/Engraver

https://youtu.be/CbzY5ECsFuQ https://youtu.be/4ybdqgmePDs In this tutorial you will learn how to make your own 4 ft by 4 ft, Arduino controlled, 3 watt laser engraver / cutter (for thin materials) for around 300$. The main thing that separates this tutorial from other laser engraver tutorials on here is the roughly 42 x 42 inch cutting/engraving area. This project arose when I was trying to create a 20 x 15 ...

Arduino Assisted RC Truck/Car

Recently I dusted off my 7 year old Stampede 2wd, designed in 1996. I got it for my 8th birthday. The truck was great, but it had a few caveats. For example, if the truck ran out of range, battery was low, or the transmitter batteries died on you, the truck would keep the throttle on the last position. Thanks to this accidental cruise (out of) control (See what I did there? 0_o), I accidentally drove m ...

UPGRADE YOUR SHADES TO FIND LOST ITEMS

Ever wish you could augment your sense of sight? [Nick Bild]’s latest hack helps you find objects (or people) by locating their position and tracking them with a laser. The device, dubbed Artemis, latches onto your eyeglasses and can be configured to locate a specific object. Images collected from the device are streamed to an NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier board, which uses a SSD300 (Single Shot MultiB ...

NOT-QUITE-SO-HOT STUFF: A THERMAL EXAM ON THE LATEST RASPBERRY PI

When the Raspberry Pi 4 was first launched, one of its few perceived flaws was that it had a propensity to get extremely hot. It’s evidently something the Pi people take very seriously, so in the months since they have addressed the problem with a set of firmware updates. Now they’ve taken a look at the effect of the fixes in a piece on the Raspberry Pi web site, and it makes for an interesting co ...

Researchers Demonstrate New More Efficient FET By Implementing Negative Capacitance

A group of Researchers from Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana demonstrated the effect called negative capacitance by making a new type of more energy efficient transistor. This new kind of Field Effect Transistor (FET) proves a theory introduced in 2008 by Supriyo Datta, the Thomas Duncan Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Sayeef Salahuddin, who is a professor of Elect ...

Lie Detector and Biofeedback Arduino Based

This tutorial will explain how to build a machine for biofeedback. But first a bit of theory. What is biofeedback? [Font: Wikipedia | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biofeedback] Biofeedback is the process of gaining greater awareness of many physiological functions primarily using instruments that provide information on the activity of those same systems, with a goal of being able to manipulate them at ...

DIY Multi Featured Robot With Arduino

This robot was mainly built for understanding Arduino and combining various projects of Arduino to form a Multi Featured Arduino Robot. And further, who doesn't want to have a pet robot? So I named it BLUE ROVIER 316. I could have bought a beautiful tracked chassis but making it from scratch teaches you more and gives you more pride after you have completed it. The robot is capable of understanding voice co ...
