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.
<p>love the indestructible wish I had more access love the magnetron idea gives the radar more power in my opinion because of the magnetic radiation it gives off more power with increased detecting skills I would stick with the magnatron if i was you I live in a desert so there is more ufo encounters</p>
<p>Can you post a circuit design, or the partnumbers for the circuit boards you used please?</p>
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...
<p>please tell me how it works and how you made it</p>
<p>Funny, I like it !</p>
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.
<p>Isn't it ceramic ?</p>
