Garmin GPSmap 60(CSx) Battery Power Fix = More rugged GPS
Arduino controlled window for cat
Hanging retro cassette led lamp
The original cat window has been working continuously for 4 years! There has been some minor tweaking in the code (opening/closing speed of the window, better proximity sensor for outside because of sunlight), but basically "it works like the WC in a train" (finnish proverb meaning very simple and reliable design:).Current proximity sensor looking outside is similar to this:http://www.dx.com/p/diy-ir-infrared-distance-measu...Also, there is now only 2 sensors in use, because the one looking inside caused too many "wrong alarms": when someone walked beside the window, it detected the movement.
Great fix, thank you! I am really disappointed with the Garmin design, though. How does a contact based battery terminal (that oxidize ALL the time) pass any sanity checks in a outdoor, possibly, survival equipment!?!?!?
