TEENSY CONTROLLER FOR POWERFUL CNCS

It seems like every year, it gets a bit easier to build your own CNC. From the Enhanced Machine Controller (EMC) project of the early 1990s to Arduinos running Grbl in the late 2000s, the open source community has moved ahead in leaps and bounds. Grbl is at its core firmware that interprets G-code and commands stepper motors, usually to move a tool head in such a way as to make something. Tons of systems ha ...

Random Bet Generator Money Box

I was having a discussion with my other half about football and money and the subject came round to betting. Whenever he goes to the match his mates all chip in a few quid and they put a bet on. The bet is usually the final score AND either the first or last goal scorer. Needless to say they never win any money. We decided to make that money work for us instead – so we will enjoy the excitement of a bet whi ...

TURNING A DESK DRAWER INTO A FLIGHT YOKE

[Christofer Hiitti] found himself with the latest Microsoft Flight Simulator on his PC, but the joystick he ordered was still a few weeks out. So he grabbed an Arduino, potentiometers and a button and hacked together what a joke-yoke. The genius part of this hack is the way [Christopher] used his desk drawer for pitch control. One side of a plastic hinge is attached to a potentiometer inside a drawer, while ...

Temperature-controlled USB fan using Arduino

As summer is coming, I bought a USB fan from HuaQiangBei, Shenzhen. However, when I focus myself on work(or game), I could hardly notice its existence. If I can teach it how to think and execute its duty without my order, that will be more practical and fun! So roll your sleeves and follow me to refit a temp-controlled fan! Step 1: The structure of USB fan is pretty simple. When you break it down(or even yo ...

RGB Backlight + MSGEQ7 Audio Visualizer

Welcome to my Instructables on how to build a RGB LED backlight for e.g. the back of your TV or desk. The Schematic itself is very simple since the WS2812 LED Strips are very easy to interface with e.g an Arduino Nano. Note: that you do not have to use the additional MSGEQ7 Audio Analyzer circuit if you only want the LED Backlight without audio visualization. I provided a detailed list o ...

USB BELL RINGS IN CUSTOM TERMINAL

Old TeleTypes and even typewriters had bells. Real bells. So that ASCII BEL character is supposed to make an honest to goodness ringing sound. While some modern terminals make a beep from the computer speakers, it isn’t the same. [Tenderlove] must agree, because the turned a Microchip USB to I2C bridge chip into a HID-controlled bell. The only problem we see is that you have to have a patch to your terminal ...

Simple Garage Door Hack

After being accidentally locked out of my house on more than one occasion, I decided that there had to be better way to entering my home that did not involve breaking and entering (and without hiding a key outside somewhere). On taking a look at my garage door set-up I noticed that the motor to open the garage door could be activated by simply short-circuiting two contacts. On seeing this I realised that a ...

FACING THE CORONAVIRUS

Some of us are oblivious to how often we touch our faces. The current finding is we reach for our eyes, nose, or mouth every three to four minutes. Twenty times per hour is an awful lot of poking, picking, itching, and prodding when we’re supposed to keep our hands away from glands that can transmit and receive disease. To curb this habit and enter the 2020 Hackaday Prize, [Lloyd lobo] built a proof-of-conc ...

The USB-C Explorer helps to get started with USB-C

I've been quiet for a while, mostly because I've been working on a new USB-C board. Actually, the board didn't take the most time; that would be the firmware development. (Never underestimate firmware). The result is a cool piece of gear, a powerful development platform, and a stronger firmware library. The USB-C Explorer is a development board with everything needed to start working with USB Type-C. It con ...
