This is an easy build that results in a cool little LED Ring Lamp. This light can be placed in various locations to add some color and style. No specialized tools are required and a 3D printer is not required - you can utilize a print service such as 3DHubs.com to obtain the 3D printed parts from a local printer.
Hi and welcome to an instructable about a miniature weather station.The idea and much of the code is from a blog by Daniel Eichhorn at this web address, go check it out as he is into some cool stuff!http://blog.squix.ch/2015/12/esp8266-weather-station-new-version.htmlI have updated/changed the code for my use so that it works with a larger OLED with a different chipset (SH1106 vs SSD1306). I also added some new features and enhancements.First things first, (if you haven't already), please watch the 2 minute video to see what it does......OK, now you have seen the video you can see that it:1) Is a weather station which grabs data from the internet to show current conditions and a 3 day forecast2) The unit can be toggled to show data in another city - perhaps where your relatives or friends live3) The unit has a senor so can display the temperature and humidity indoors4) The progra
Build a cool moving headdress without 3D printing or laser cutting!This headdress was inspired by the amazing artwork of Moritz Waldemeyer that features in the music video forAutomaton by Jamiroquai. This Instructable will show you how to recreate the headdress with readily available materials.The headdress has15 servos and 85 RGB LEDs, it's made primarily from 10mm thick EVA foam and 5mm foamboard. A backpack style control box houses the battery and electronics. A hand controller is used to control the motion of the blades. Two Arduino Pro Minis are used to control the lights and servos respectively.This project is quite long and involves a lot of soldering but the results are well worth the effort! Sketchup models are included for those who wish to use 3D printing in certain areas. There are templates for most of the parts as well all the code and libraries required. That being said ther
Burning patterns into stuff with the focused suns rays.... about the level of eighth grade earth science before this subject was eliminated by our current Secretary of Education. But what if instead of just killing small arthropods with a death ray and then seeing spots before your eyes for ten minutes you could neatly carve beautiful figures with a solar Etch a Sketch. Controlling the Sun can be done with either moving the beam with a servo-motor mirror system or moving the target. The utility of Laser cutters and CNC machines is demonstrated nearly everywhere--you just need a lot of cash or a nearby well stocked Maker Space to participate in this blooming culture, or do you? The sun is free and the tools to carve into blocks of frozen yogurt or crackers or chunks of wood are easy to obtain from China or Adafruit. This project was done a
This time I'll make a battery capacity tester from a bulb, watt meter and voltage control module. How I did it - you can check by looking DIY video or you can follow up instructions bellow. For this project you will need: Materials: Wattmeter https://goo.gl/G7tvBB12V voltage control module https://goo.gl/v0llDO12V 55W light bulb WiresTools:Cutters
