Hello Everyone, I'm Geeve George a 15 year old Maker/Electronics Hobbyist.I love Computer Vision , Android Development and Algorithm Design.I am currently in 11th Grade Computer Science Student at Little Rock Indian School. :) Find more about me at : www.geevegeorge.co.vu.What is Leap Motion ?Leap Motion, Inc. is an American company that manufactures and markets a computer hardware sensor device that supports hand and finger motions as input, analogous to a mouse, but requires no hand contact or touching.What is the Leap Motion Controller and how does it work ( In a Nutshell ) ?The Leap Motion controller is a small USB peripheral device which is designed to be placed on a physical desktop, facing upward. Using two monochromatic IR cameras and three infrared LEDs, the device observes a roughly hemispherical area, to a distance of about 1 meter. The LEDs generate pattern-less IR light and the cameras generate almos
***UPDATE***Hi Everyone! Firstly thank you for all the support and feedback, the community here is awesome :)Here are answers to some questions: Why did you make this?I wanted to make a portable computer that had a full sized keyboard. I felt that this form factor was very compact and most of all easy enough for me to actually make.What can it do?From my usage experience, I feel it is more suited for tasks such as text editing and tasks you can do using the command line (which is plenty!).What are you gonna use it for?Taking notes in my lectures for now. Gonna use it to experiment with linux bash scripts next time to perform more tasks. How long does the battery last?On my aging knock-off 18650 battery, they last almost 1 hour before the LCD screen starts flickering and dies.(Latest Test 8 Aug) I will test it soon with

#ThugLifeRobotHey there folks,Today i am going to show you guys how to use RC controllers and decode their signals for any of your projects As many of the you know that we can directly use servo motors with RC receivers since, servos use PPM(Pulse Position Modulation ) signals as inputs to operate ,so by decoding the signals we can use RC receivers and transmitters to create a variety of wireless projects ..So to demonstrate this we shall use a 4 wheel drive (4WD) robot .. to drive the wheels we are using four DC motors ,and they are controlled using a motor driver which operates on PWM(Pulse Width Modulation) signals. We will discuses the difference between PWM and PPM in upcoming steps. So lets get started !!!!!
I wrote this instructable because I made a similar project recently and thought it'd be nice to write down my work and share it with others. What we want to reach with this instructable, is wireless controlling multiple devices (lights for example) on a timed schedule. Handy when you're not at home and still want to turn on / off some lights automatically to scare burglars etc.
I have received a lot of requests for OneWire Maxim DS1820/DS18S20 thermometer tutorial, so here is the first such Instructable.In the following Instructables I will demonstrate how to work with multiple thermometers connected to the same pin, as well as how to get the Thermometer OneWire address, so stay tuned... ;-)Please note that the annotation on some of the pictures in this Instructable will work correctly on some browsers only after you click on the image to expand it.

Parking sensors use a type of sonar. The term sonar is an acronym for sound navigation and radar; it's used for calculating the distance and/or direction of an object from the time it takes for a sound wave to travel to the target and back.An ultrasonic sensor is a speaker or microphone that emits or receives ultrasound. There is also a type that can handle both emission and reception. Vehicle parking sensors are equipped with this type of sensor. Ultrasound sensors initially found use in vehicles for detecting obstacles when parking but it is now evolving into an automatic parking system.
When working on protoboards, link the Linkit One and other controllers, I find myself always referring to cheat sheets to remember which plug is what. This instructable is what I created to give me my cheat sheet built right into my work space.Everything I used is readily available for only a couple of dollars.I created two different designs and the jury is still out on which is better, but for the cost, you can make both and figure it out yourself.
Nice project from Dejan Nedelkovski up on HowToMechatronics. The alarm activates in 10 seconds after pressing the A button. For detecting objects it uses an ultrasonic sensor, and once the alarm de…

Comment savoir votre temps, quand vous faites des tours de pistes, sans avoir à appuyer sur un déclencheur de chronomètre ?
Bonjour à tous, dans ce tutoriel je vais vous apprendre à fabriquer un chronomètre automatique qui compte votre temps au tour. (Utilisé pour le sport)
Attendez tout d’abord, que je vous explique la raison pour laquelle j’ai fabriqué cet appareil. J’ai 16 ans et je pratique du roller de vitesse en compétition, pour cela je me suis fait un chronomètre géant et automatique, à l’aide d’une carte Arduino Mega 250. Il me permet de voir, en instantané, mon temps au tour de piste. Je m’entraîne avec le temps au tour de piste et non pas en km/h comme sur vélo de route. Avec une petite dizaine de coéquipiers, nous roulons sous forme de peloton. Afin que tout le monde puisse voir le temps au tour j’ai donc décidé de faire ce chronomètre géant (Notre rythme du temps au tour est tout le temps inférieur à 1 min c’est pour cela que mon chronomètre s’arrête à 60,00 secondes). Voila pour la petite histoire, passons maintenant à la partie construction de ce chronomètre.
Je suis encore en train de peaufiner et améliorer mon projet. J’avais d’abord fait un afficheur avec des LED vertes mais en pleine journée ensoleillé on ne voyait aucun chiffre apparaître. J’ai donc tout démonté et recommencé à zéro avec plus de LED rouges. Je vous montrerai donc mon deuxième chronomètre qui est, à peine finis niveau esthétique, mais qui fonctionne quand même très bien. Le but de ce chrono est de donner le temps au tour de tout le peloton et non seulement le temps d’une personne. Le principe est donc : le chrono se lance, on fait notre tour de piste et on passe devant le capteur. Au moment ou l’on passe devant le capteur, le chrono se relance (à 00:00) et l’afficheur affiche le temps pendant 10 secondes. Au même instant, le capteur s’éteint (pendant 10 secondes) pour ne pas prendre en compte le reste du peloton.
The Air Wick Freshmatic Compact i-Motion air freshener is an intriguing target for re-purposing. It uses a passive infrared (PIR) sensor to detect motion in a room and then increases the rate that it dispenses air freshener. This air freshener sells for $8, but you can sometimes get it cheaper with coupons. Radio Shack carries the Parallax PIR module for $10. So the question is why bother re-purposing the Air Wick air freshener? If you just want to replicate the Parallax PIR module, you can modify the air freshener by drilling 2 holes, adding a wire, and cutting a trace. Stopping here, you end up with a can of air freshener, 3 batteries, 2 slide and 1 push button switches, a cool aerosol valve, a medium power PNP transistor, a two wire connector with leads, and a LED. I will show you two ways to do this; the simplest way, and a way to make th
As part of my entry for the Leap Motion #3D Jam, I was excited to build this wireless gesture controlled Search/Rescue Robot based on the Raspberry Pi. This project demonstrates and provides a minimalistic example of how wireless 3D hand gestures can be used to control and interact with physical stuff.Since this project uses the popular WebIOPi IoT framework on the Raspberry Pi, it can be very easily expanded to control and interface typically any Sensor/Hardware/Electronics that can be interfaced with the Raspberry Pi. Some possible scenarios I envision fellow Makers may use this project as their base framework to build on:1. Remote Gesture Operated Bomb Disposal Robot (using maybe an OWI Arm etc) 2. Remote Surgical Operation by a Doctor 3. Gesture controlled interactive Art Exhibits or Educational Content 4. Infinite other possibilities/integrations (I'm limited by my imagination :) )
Ever since hobbyist multi/quadcopters have become easily available, I have wanted to fly one. However, I did not want to simply buy an off-the-shelf model with a plug-n-play experience. I wanted to built a quadcopter myself. I wanted to own it. I imagine that is why you are here too. Buying a quadcopter is simply too easy. Over my winter break I finally had the time to start planning and building a quadcopter of my own. I will walk you through my experience of making it, a quadcopter controlled over Wi-Fi by a Raspberry Pi B+ (instead of a traditional radio controller/ transmitter ), with a MultiWii flight controller.Requirements: Around $200 total. Depends on what you already have An Android phone (No Apple support yet) Time! Planning/ ordering/ build/ testing all takes a lot more time then you thinkI would like to thank reglisse44 for his tutorial that inspired thi

Hello! We want to use 2.4" TFT LCD shield (There is mcufriend.com writes on this shield) works with Arduino Mega, because it is not so easy to run each other. But with this instructions, you can run and modify codes easily according to this tutorial.
This is a black box built specifically for winter sports. It is a complete overhaul of my original design.This black box has a stronger crush proof case, internal temperature controlled heater, and an external temperature and humidity sensor. As well as the 3 axis GPS location, barometric altitude, and 3 axis tilt and acceleration found in the aeronautical version: http://www.instructables.com/id/Black-Box/In this project the temperature sensors, humidity sensor, carbon heat tape, and foam board were all leftovers from other projects.I am currently testing this Black Box, but here is footage of the testing of a similar model (without temperature or humidity sensors, a heater, external battery, or reinforced case)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POogGO4eM0EFor this intractable you will require:- A strong container (ribbing is a good sign)- A temperature sensor (salvaged mine off of an old printer)- A temperature and humidity sensor (also salvaged off of an old printer)- Carbon heat tape- MOSFET (salvaged off of ...
This simple DC motor controller allows for one direction motor control and has been built entirely of reclaimed electrical parts. Using MOSFET's for motor control instead of control chips, allows for an external power supply and electric isolation of the motor and control board. Which allows for the use of higher voltage and amperage motors than the micro-controller can support.For this project you will need:- A DC motor (I used a salvaged DC fan)- MOSFET (I used a 110v 30amp make sure it is rated for more than your fan)- Solder less bread board- Jumper Wires- LinkIt One (or another micro-controller)- (volt battery and connector)A huge thank you to instructables, autodesk, MediaTek, and Penolopy Bulnick for sending me the Link It One used in this instructable.Check Out Our Other Accounts!
