    555 Useless Machine

    Forget the killjoys telling you using a 555 chip is overkill this is a fun way to do it and I note from other comments that you wanted to learn about using them.The fun of using a micro-controller to build a Really Useless Box is you can make the finger change speed randomly, make it hesitate, even make it extend but appear to change it's mind about hitting the switch. The extended project from there would be to have it make sounds, add LED "eyes" that blink and wink etc.Like I said though, this is a fun little project for anyone wanting to play with a 555 as a learning project and I like it. :)

  • Start Your Car With a Rope (Dead Battery Life Hack)

    in principle yes, especially if it's mid engined, however front engined rear wheel drive cars have more components between the engine and wheels and so have greater mechanical resistance between engine and wheels.

  • How to Make a Dehumidifier (Thermoelectric Cooling)

    interesting Instructable but good grief you used a lot of thermal grease/heat compound? Is that deliberate for some reason because it will make heat transfer less efficient?

    wow! You are so late to this party, a) you haven't read this conversation, if you had you'd know a lot has changed since this was posted. b) what is your practical, real world basis for comparison? What have you actually used day to day in the real world in order to make a practical, real comparison? c) "it's called a bookmark" if you're using web mail and not an email client. d) I've had several new PC's since I wrote the initial comment here, as I said late to the party, read the comments and e) I wrote the original comment largely based on actual knowledge and experience (I worked in IT support for 12 years) of the state of play at the time but also partly because it amuses me when ten-a-penny Windows fanboys desperately feel an inexplicable need to defend Windows to the de...see more »wow!
