Oh excellent. Swatter Rackets are one of my favorite invetions. Now in steroids!
Wow, well documented. With that info looks relatively easy to make very capable project ( hardware, database, etc) using a very low cost rfid ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/zBUJEmM ) reader kit
Very nice build! how long does it stay moving with a fully charged 15F superapactor?
Very nice build! how long does it stay moving with a fully charged 15F supercapacitor?
Very good project. I started to make something similar, but i'll use 500 ohm single turn panel mount potentiometer like this( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/faAEaMB ) or maybe a 200 ohm single turn panel mount potentiometer like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/MJqnUny ), so a screwdriver will not be required any more!. Thanks
4-20 MA CURRENT LOOP SIMULA...View Instructable »
Amazing project. Peristaltic pump is the way to do this (pumping head mechanism isn't in direct contact with food). They arn't not insanely expensive ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/NjyVvBe ), just around USD $5.00 each
Coin cell batteries have a very large internal resistance, so its ok to power leds directly!, please consider using rechargeable coin cell batteries, so earing can be re-used ( recharged) avoiding battery waste!
Wow! a lot of scientific info underneath! Probably will work with gel pad electrodes like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/Rzn2Vvr ) ?
Maybe search in Aliexpres for "gel electrode pads" ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/Rzn2Vvr ) I don't really know if they have the same electrical charactics as the mentioned in the article, but are pretty low cost
Nice build, how much noise does it pick without a metal box enclosure?
Good, very well documented, very instructive photos!
Very well documented and a very good use for a cheap and small Arduino compatible (Attiny based!) Digispark like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/FA6EuZr ) board that can be plugged directly to an USB port
Humm good to know. Shift registers are still used for large 7 segment displays ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/uJ2zfEA )
No more free bread for the birds :(
Refreshing "old style" electronics without microcontrollers
Excellent project. ( more practical than the previous project). I think too is pretty low cost. 100 pieces lot of push switches costs around USD $1.00 ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/IU7Auv3 ). A 600 pieces resistor kit ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/3VvBm6e ) with 30 different values costs around USD $2.00. Yes it will take a little time shipping, but really good bango for the buck if your not in a hurry!
Nice, small and cheap!
I like the detachable power bank design!
Good project. Nice looking. There are some panel meters that cost a few more cents ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/ZBa2nYR ) that sports a little plastic faceplate for panel mounting
Good, very economic way to make a radiation shield for temperature sensors!
Very well done, nice system to supercharge a low cost ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/z7yb6yf ) traffic light toy kit!
Point to a small solar cell connected to a computer sound card and you'll hear fast vibrations (above 20 hz)
Good description, but a shcematic will be super!
Very nice and "geeky"
Great project. Probably i'll make one using a 600 pc ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/nAaUjIm ) resistor kit
Good experiments and uses for an assorted 300 pc ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/nAaUjIm ) resistor kit
Great job. Good project for an unused 300 pc ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/nAaUjIm ) resistor kit
Excellent. Good project for an unused ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/nAaUjIm ) 300 pc resistor kit
Very nice approach and a good use for an assorted resistor kit ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/nAaUjIm )
Very well exlained!. For a more compact ( and cheaper ) solution an Arduino nano like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/ZBUrnun ) could be used. Is very protoboard firendly!
Very good project. A nicer alternative that keeps almost all electronics far from the fluid measured is to use a waterproof ultrasonic level sensor like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/IMnyZRb ).
Good. Love the battery case holder as robot chassis!
Hum, very good application. I wonder if probably it can be ruggedized adding a low cost industrial type HMI interface like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/aYBmUBQ )
Excellent work!. I started something similar (not finished yet) . The biggest problem is where to get the extrusion profiles with reasonable price and shipping costs in other parts of the world where Ebay or Amazon arn't available (economically speaking). The closest thing i found is a pre-cut 2020 profiles, for very low cost (and shipping) ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/2jUzrna )
Good experiment! i never heared of this method before!
Wow, very good looking and polished clothing! to avoid throwing disposable batteries, a rechargeable coin cell like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/3zNvfi2 ) could be used ( and reused! )
Good job, give me great ideas to repurpose other unused electronic stuff. Those mp3 players ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/jqNVFyf ) are awesome!
haha nice project! a friend something ask me for something but in the other way. An alarm clock that only can be turned off aimint to it with a water gun. The sensor like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/Yrja6IY ) was placed like 2 meters away, so you have to get away from the bed and with very open eyes to turn it off!
Good! I like the animated gif of the cutting process!
Good explained. I work as a contron engineer and loopback DB9 are a pice of hardware that give a quick answer if a PLC serial port is working or burn!. For flexibility purposes now i use a "solderless DB9" ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/7AmAurR ) so i can make on the go loopbacks, serial cables or crossover
Good job! very sturdy box

Chicken foot, funny name!
Chicken Foot LED Lamp
Got me :S
I like your diagrams, are very clear!
Good bang for the buck!
Humm looks delicious
Wow, i love mech action figures!. Using an Arduino Nano like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/ZBUrnun ) is so small that can be put inside the figure!
Very nice instructable, from the hardware world (Microcontroller) to the software domain (databases!). I have never heared about the FeatherWingh ethernet module. Probaly the same libraries work with a generic WizNet 5500 ethernet module ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/6eqRvn2 ) if there is no need for stackable solution!
One More Small Footprint Barebone Arduino
Featherwing Ethernet Mysql Datalogger
Excellent job! Very good detail of components, prices and sources. For your next instructable a good idea could be adding the links for the Aliexpress or the vendor of the component for example:Atmega 328P ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/UVfEqF6 ) $ 1.2616 mhz crystal ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/7aqRBii ) $ 0.54 22 pf capacitors ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/ybemM7Q ) $ 0.482x8 pcb ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/U7Iy3Nz ) $ 0.55Aliexpress and other component vendors are not very good searching, like for example google, or bing, so giving direct link of the component would be a great help for a lot of people!
Excellent! what a lovely face :)
Good IoT COTS watering device!
ESP8266 Tutorial: Build an Automatic Plant Watering System
Lovely! Arduino & Lego. The perfect couple
Wow what a good looking and professional paper airplane!. I wonder if it can be fitted with a motor&battery kit ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/qB6iUrN ) designed for powering up paper airplanes!
Excellent! good for an episode of TBBT
Great project, for some people i know (not good at plant caring ). For a more compact version that can be embedded in the pot a cheap Digispark Arduino compatible board ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/FA6EuZr ) could be used!
Very polished project!
Anti-Cosmic Insignificance Suit
Wonderful science based costume!
very good, cheap available materials!
DIY Arduino Catamaran
Very good, a very flexible, sturdy and cheap alternative to gorilla pods. Coolant pipes are very cheap ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/iYneAMN ) around USD $1.00 each.
Well done! not suitable for impatient people!
Nice! what a modern looking airplane. I wonder if can be equiped with a motor&battery kit like this( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/qB6iUrN ) designed for paper planes to make flights longer!
Oragami Paper Plane Fighter
Wow what a great looking airplane! I wonder if it can fly longer adding a motor&battery kit like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/qB6iUrN ) designed for paper planes!
There is a conversion kit like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/JAAQRjQ ) to put in a self designed paper aircraft!
Wow beautiful, like a living animal! Wonder if equiped with an electric motor kit like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/bYj2fIe ) still flaps!
Nice plane, different to the common ones! I wonder if it could be "pimped" with an electric motor&battery kit like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/bYj2fIe ) designed for diy paper aircraft!
Wow beautiful plane! I wonder if it could be powered by a tiny electric motor&battery designed for paper planes like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/bYj2fIe )
Yes, control could be upgraded with something really simple like paper aircraft conversion kit ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/FQ3VvFI ) Controlled by finger movement !

Making holes without drilling, been there done that. very nice project!
Automatic Temperature Controller for FishBowl
Great project, just carve a hole in the box an embed some fancy compass!
Been there! Automation engineer here too. I solved the same issue of "spy" serial line with only one serial port using (3) 232 to RS485 converters! (i'm plenty of them). That day have no resistors, diodes, or components like that, only converters. I arrange them in a sort of star topology and worked pretty well!
RS232 Serial Spy
Wow very good documented! Don't forget to add to your tool chest a "hollow desoldering needle" like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/fMRz7mQ ) very useful to remove header pins, transformers, etc. It's pretty cheap, like 1.5 USD or so!
Excellent work. doing some further research, the flexible coolat pipe can be found for around 1.5 US dollars each ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/iYneAMN ). So the budget of the project could be reduced to around 10 dollars or less!
Well done tutorial. another thing to helps spreading the solder is to use some kind of solderable wire like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/yN37uvn ). It's like enameled wire, but the coating doesen't have to be removed scratching! it goes away with the heat of the soldering iron!
Very great idea, and very cheap. Some of your links doesn't work right now. If somebody needs search for "flexible coolant pipe" in Aliexpress ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/iYneAMN ). They are very low cost. much cheaper than buy an already made solution for third hand soldering
Yeees, boring squares! very nice work!. Pre made solutions costs around 30 USD dollars, and as you say, boring!. Flexible coolant pipe are very cheap () around 1 US dollar and half or so each ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/iYneAMN ). They are super rigid and more friendly to setup that the unscrew-adjust-screwagain commond third hands!
Very good tutorial. Another very handy tool for reworking or desoldering is called "hollow desoldering needle" like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/fMRz7mQ ). Is cheap (around a dollar and a half), but not well known. Great for desoldering header pins!
Good design! a multiple fashionable earring could be made with different arranges of optic fiber, also using a rechargeable button cell battery like this ( http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/3zNvfi2 ) to avoid discarding an empty one every night!
