Tell us about yourself!
I just might do it! Will post back if I do
Awesome Project! But, why didn't you just use the trucks as stands instead of cutting the wheels up? Heck, with sufficient internal bracing, you could probably still kind of skate on it then! I really like this project though, don't get me wrong.
Really awesome 'ible! I have to ask though, beyond the 'cool' factor, was the Geiger counter really necessary? Has it proven useful or given any insight on any way?I'd be interested in building this but I think it's would be cool if it counted cosmic rays instead, but I think you'd need at least two or three tubes stacked vertically.Regardless, this is awesome and just what I was looking for!
"I finally convinced her it would be a worthwhile project to..[insert something men are passionate about, and call it a project]", I think just about every husband ever has used this line! Hahahaha
I'm a little lost at step 10
Depends on the load impedance, I'd go for a 220uf, should be plenty if you're using it before an amplifier.
Not true, at higher rpm's a lower pitch is more efficient.
I had a look at the code, it is very bloated, I would suggest you use the emonlib from open energy monitor and instantiate a single object per analog pin you want to monitor. The way to do it in the code provided in the instructable would be to change the following lines:#define NUM_CTS 1#define MAX_CTS 1AND THEN you will need to trace down all the arrays that jmengel declares, and only add a single element to them. It's a very inelegant way to do things though.
