PCB Motor – A smaller and cheaper brushless motor.

Description My open source PCB motor is a smaller, cheaper and easier to assemble micro brushless motor. What unique about this motor design is that the stator is printed on a 4-layer PCB board. The six stator poles are spiral traces wounded in a star configuration. Although these coils produce less torque compared to an iron core stator, the motor is still suitable for high-speed applications. The current ...

Color Recognition Lock

There are a lot of ways that you can activate an electronic lock. You can use passwords, radio signals, or even voice commands. In this project, I am going to show you how to make a lock box that opens and closes based on color recognition. With a color recognition lock, anything can be a key. You can set the lock to recognize the color of a cereal box, or the cover of your favorite book. You could even use ...

Motor Controllers for Cheap Robots

Hey! This I'ble is now out of date! I made an updated version which you can read here! Hope you find it fun and useful! ~~~~~ Thus far, I've shown you how to create wheels out of household items, severalmotorizedchassis out of cardboard, and a couple of simple and effective light sensors. Now, one of the last major pieces is about to fall into place. Almost every robot needs to power a motor of some sort or ...

Tidal Clock

This is a tutorial for making the Tidal Clock. The clock shows the ebb and flow between high and low tide by a rising and falling water level. It consists of an airtight acrylic container that has a front visible chamber and a back hidden chamber. A volume rotates through the back chamber, displacing the water in the front and causing the water level to rise and fall. The rotation is controlled by an Arduin ...

Pocket Laser Engraver.

I have been trying to get my hands on a laser cutter for some time but they always seem out of reach. All the great things that can be done with a real laser cutter tickle the imagination. I feel it's time to share my latest project - a low cost laser engraver,. The workspace is a bit small but none the less it works and comes so cheap that most will be able to replicate the result. I did take a few shortcu ...

How to Make an Entire Drone/Multirotor and Camera Gimbal Using Laser Cut Parts

the photo you see was taken from my first ever copter which i built in 2 hours, what i had not mentioned was my first copter used a laser cut frame i designed and produced whilst in school.This difference between this post and my other about building multirotors is this is mainly to do with designing a custom frame, however i thought rather than  post links to the next tutorial, i would include it both ...

Arduino Milliohm Meter

This is an accurate milliohm meter with a maximum resolution of 0.1mOhm. The design is very simple, the whole assembly can be built in a couple of hours once all the parts are gathered. It is based on a precision current sink and a high-resolution ADC controlled by an Arduino Nano V3. It uses a Kelvin connection with the resistor under test to exclude the resistance of test leads from the measurements. It c ...

A SUPER EASY LASER ENGRAVER

CNC comes in all shapes and sizes, from huge industrial lathes to homebuilt wire benders. [MJKZZ] has built their own compact rig, using optical drive parts to create a cute but effective laser engraver. (Video embedded below.) The build aims to keep things simple by holding the laser stationary, and moving the bed instead. The laser in question is a 500 mW unit, driven by the Z axis on the Arduin ...

Using NXT Components With a Micro Controller

This is a guide to using the motors and sensors from the LEGO NXT set with a Parallax Basic Stamp II or BS2.  However, rather than just providing schematics and sample code for the BS2, I'll be providing some theory on how the sensors work as well.  This way, someone using an arduino or other microcontroller should find this guide at least somewhat helpful. My two main sources of information areTh ...
