Dual Axis Tracker V2.0

Way back in the year 2015 we designed a Simple Dual Axis Tracker for use as a fun student or hobby project. It was small, noisy, a little complicated, and provoked a lot of really weird community comments. That being said, three and a half years later we're still getting emails and phone calls from people all over the world wanting to build their own. Due to the success of our original project post, youtube ...

I've designed a ~100mm x 100mm or ~4in x 4in PCB heart. It uses the Attiny85 SMD microprocessor as the brain. The LEDs are SK2812s I salvaged from another project after first trying WS2812b LEDs which are garbage for reusing ...

We must say, th ...

Portal 2 Turret – Master Turret Control

This project is an extension or remix of my original Portal Turret on Instructables (Portal-2-Turret-Gun). It can also be used as a cheap controller to control anything that uses the nRF24L01 radio chip. The LCD screen is particularly useful when customizing. https://youtu.be/8gPdsQ2TPBI (It turns out to be quite useful in checking when my radios establish and lose connections with other nRF24L01's on the " ...
