If there are light-colored objects or surfaces in the house, wouldn't at least SOME of the light be reflected back out through the window? The greater and darker the amount of surfaces the light hits, the less that gets reflected out -- so there WOULD be a net gain. Whether that gain is worth the money and effort would have to be tested/justified.
VERY MISLEADING "$40" description.
Here's a closeup shot.
Which, as I said, is why they can make stoves out of wood.
Sounds like you're already beyond my electronic knowledge! :)
You should include a resistor on the signal line, as close to the LED strip as possible -- to protect your signal pin. Between 220 and 470 ohm.Also, for software, I HIGHLY recommend looking into FastLED.Great work!
You can also just toss them from hand to hand and yell "ow, ow, oo, ow, hot, HOT, ow, ow, ow!"
What's a dishwasher? I just put the dirty dishes on the counter and they end up clean in the appropriate cabinets.
So... either the instructions that come with it are so poor you -- the manufacturer -- had to create an instructable, or this is just a thinly veiled ad for your product.
That's probably why they make wood stoves.
Great build! Well thought out, excellent performance, and a polished look!
And one should never make a crucifix out of anything but wood? Or buy a totem pole replica? Should Native Americans only perform their traditional dances in leather clothing they hunted, skinned, and tanned themselves... and never decorate them with manufactured beads? Saying "my comment is not meant to offend" doesn't make it any less condescending. This project is an awesome way for hundreds, if not thousands of more people to learn more about Aboriginal traditions. If you REALLY want to respect the Aboriginals, get off their continent.
Don't walk around with them on a key chain! Most places it's illegal to even possess lock-picking tools. A lot of burglars will dispose of their picks once through the lock. If they caught they can always (try and) say that they heard a scream/shot/etc, tried the door and it was unlocked, so went in to check. Doesn't work if you the jewelry box is empty and your pockets are full though!
This is JUST AN AD! A pretty good way to make sure I never buy one of their products. Goes against the Instructables grain.
Were the rafters you cut running perpendicular to the long side of the opening? If so, you greatly increased the span of the opening and -- if all you did was reinforce along the length of the opening -- you transferred more weight/load to the rafter at each end of the opening. If the rafters run parallel to the long side of the opening, you should be good.
There's something about this project that bugs me.
