FORCE SENSITIVE RESISTOR TAKES THE PAIN OUT OF BED LEVELING

How do you know if your 3D printer bed is levelled? Oh, don’t worry – you’ll know. Without a level bed, filament won’t stick properly to the build surface and you’ll run into all sorts of other problems. Knowing how tricky it can be to get the bed just right, [Antzy] built a tool to help. The device, which he calls the FS-Touch, is based around an Arduino Pro Micro fitted with a force sensitive resistor. Th ...

VOICE CHESS USES PHONE, ARDUINO, AND AN ELECTROMAGNET

Either way, his voice command chessboard appears to work, although it has a lot of moving parts both figuratively and literally. You can check out the video below to see how it works. The speech part is handled by an Android pho ...

A PKE METER THAT ACTUALLY DETECTS RADIATION

Fans of Ghostbusters will remember the PKE meter, a winged handheld device capable of detecting supernatural activity. Precious little technical data on the device remains, leaving us unable to replicate its functionality. However, the flashing, spreading wings serve as a strong visual indicator of danger, and [mosivers] decided this would be perfect for a Geiger counter build. An SBM20 Geiger tube serves a ...

MAKING INSTANT RAMEN A BIT MORE INSTANT

Instant ramen, the favoured repast of the impecunious would-be tech genius! It’s cheap, of dubious nutritional value, and it only takes a minute to cook. But what if you are in the creative Zone to the extent that five minutes to boil water is too much? For that you need an automatic ramen cooker, which is what [Mayermakes] has created from an upcycled electric filter coffee maker. A filter coffee maker is ...
