Indeed: A current regulated source should be used. Relying only on the capability of the DC converter and wire/fuse resistances is a hasardous way of doing things...I wouldn't recommend this.
Very nice, but something bothers me: your pull-down resistors are way too low.This is almost a dead short-circuit when you press the button ! This could cause your Arduino to reset, and even your resistors to be fried if you keep the button press for too long.I'd recommend you change the value to at least 1 K
Clever and nice and.... inspiring!
Yep!And furthermore, they advertise for products including FAKE chips (MAX7219). It's obvious when you look at their pictures and compare them to the pictures of genuine and fake chips (such as can be seen here:http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=233109.0 )Too bad that such practices are not being banned from Instructables....
Very clever idea to use plumber bits!
Thanks for your appreciation of my country, and that wonderfully inspired work.
Aka "The survivalist way to essential popcorn" ! ;-)I like that ! Very clever. I wonder if another type of (small) candle, with a thicker wick, would do better in terms of time-to-pop
Such "simple" tricks are often the most ingenious and the most useful of all. I will definitely give this a try and will take some time to practice.Big thumbs up, and thanks for having shared this.
