Picture of Little USB radar
A little Usb mobile radar thingy I made from scrap parts, it can be powered on usb (500ma) on any computer.
The motor and usb connector were saved from a dead all-in-one printer.
The radar dish from a old mac computer and the transmitter from a microwave oven.
Everthing else is custom made.

Now we can keep a eye out for ufo's and such...


Got a new "transmitter unit" this time from a old spotlight being thrown away... Cleaned it up and it was perfect for replacement for the old dangerous microwave unit.

Funny, I like it !

Wow thats neat. It look pretty realistic. I would like to warn you that magnatron that you got out a microwave has a highly poisonous pink colour material around the emitter. I would not touch it or inhale any dust it might make if scratched.

Isn't it ceramic ?

Yup, thats right, the project has been locked away due to the berrylium isolator we see on the photo. I will exchange the part when I've got another microwave...
