CONTROL A MOTOR WITH A TOUCHPAD

There are a surprising wealth of parts inside of old laptops that can be easily scavenged, but often these proprietary tidbits of electronics will need a substantial amount of work to make them useful again. Obviously things such as hard drives and memory can easily be used again, but it’s also possible to get things like screens or batteries to work with other devices with some effort. Now, there’s also a ...

Temperature Controlled Vaccine & Insulin Cooler

Keeping cool saves lives In the developing world, vaccines are the front line of defense against dangerous illnesses such as Ebola, Influenza, Cholera, Tuberculosis and Dengue to name a few. Transporting vaccines and other life-saving materials such as insulin and blood require careful temperature control. First-world logistics tend to break down when supplies are transported into regions with limited resou ...

COLLAPSE OS, AN OS FOR WHEN THE UNTHINKABLE HAPPENS

Decades of post-apocalyptic Hollywood movies have taught us that once all the trappings of our civilisation have been stripped away, it’s going to be kinda cool. We’re all going to wear slightly dusty looking 1980s motorcycling gear, and we’re going to drive really cool cars. Except of course Mad Max is fantasy, and the reality is likely to be unspeakbly grim. The future [Virgil Dupras] ...

Arduino Laser Harp

A couple of weeks ago I presented my culmination project, framed laser harp, at New York City College of Technology. Work on it was so interesting for me, that I decided to share it here. I am an Arduino amateur and don't have any professional experience in electrical engineering or programming. Neither am I a musician. Probably that's why I had so much fun: when you are moving blindly, you can't see the gr ...

30 Minutes HIV Detection Using USB Stick

In partnership with DNA Electronics,  Imperial College London researchers had developed a revolutionary USB stick that can detect HIV in the bloodstream. In order to detect the virus, it’s enough to use a drop of blood. Then the USB stick generates an electrical signal that can be read by a computer, laptop or handheld device. We have taken the job done by equipment the size of a large photocopier, and shru ...

PSU Burner – a power supply tester

Intro What does one do when designing a power supply? Well, build a power supply tester, of course. One of the simplest things to build is a constant current load. This will allow for testing of the endurance of the power supply, as most of the designs out there are using slow components. However, I wanted to make a better one: one that I could hook up to my Analog Discovery and generate a test waveform to ...

Web-Based Pool Controller W/ Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Xbee and Digital Thermometer

This simple system allows web based remote control of a swimming pool pump and heater, or any device that be switched with simple relays. It uses a Raspberry Pi as the main controller and web server. It also uses a remote thermometer run by an Arduino at the pool, powered by a battery and a solar panel. Two small XBee radio units supply the data link between the pool thermometer and the main controller. I h ...

STEAMPUNK RADIO LOOKS THE BUSINESS

Radios are, by and large, not powered by steam. One could make the argument that much of our municipal electricity supply does come via steam turbines, but that might be drawing a long bow. Regardless, steampunk remains a popular and attractive aesthetic, and it’s the one that [Christine] selected for her radio build. The build cribs from [Christine’s] earlier work on a VFD alarm clock, using similar tubes ...

PACKPROBE REPORTS LAPTOP BATTERY HEALTH

The 18650 cell has become a ubiquitous standard in the lithium battery world. From power drills to early Tesla vehicles, these compact cells power all manner of portable devices. A particularly common use is in laptop batteries, where they’re often built into a pack using the Smart Battery System. This creates a smart battery that can communicate and report on its own status. PackProbe is a software tool bu ...
