How do I go to the front page instructable?

If I go to the front page, where do I click/how do I go to the instructable shown with the autosearch thing? In the picture attached, I want to go see what's up with that rocket. The pic isn't clickable, search for rockets comes up with a bunch of other ones.

Question about electrical safety for a project with a 60V Power Supply and a Nema 34 Motor?

Hi Instructables Community,I'm working on a project with someone where we are making a VR game that uses a stationary exercise for interaction. For example, if you turn up a hill in the game while exploring a map, it gets harder to pedal. The resistance on the exercise bike is controlled by turning a knob.The knob just controls a brake-like device that adds friction to the flywheel. We're just going to use a stepper motor to control the knob with a belt. We, somewhat unscientifically, compared the torque required to turn the knob on the bike to how much torque Nema 17 and Nema 23 motors require to pull parts of a 3D printer back and forth and decided we probably need to use the bigger NEMA 34 motor. The stepper motor driver and motor we are going to require a 50V or 60V, 5A DC power supply. The motor will need to be attached to the frame of the bike near the resistance knob.This is the stepper motor and driver we are planning on using. This is the power supply we are planning on using.The stationary bike we are using is made of steel and very heavy and will be moved around a lot when people want to try it or move it out of the way. I'm a little worried that since the bike will be moved around a lot and since the motor will be connected to the bike, that if a wire got pinched or damaged it could lead to an electrocution hazard. How can I make the electronics on this project as safe and fool-proof as possible?My plan for safety right now is:Use a GFCI power adaptor to power the power supply (link)Keep the power supply and driver in a metal, grounded project enclosure (link)Ground the steel frame of the stationary bike.Keep the project enclosure fixed to the stand of the bike so that it moves with the bike when the bike is moved out of the way.Put the wires to the motor in some sort of heavy-duty insulation or conduit that's securely fixed to the frame to avoid any pulling/s shearing. Any advice/feedback/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.I don't have any photos of the set-up right now since this project is still in the planning stage.

New ideas for Tiny Whooping?

Guten Tag! I have a Tiny Whoop sitting around just begging to be modified in some way. I need some new ideas. Anything I successfully pull off will be published as an Instructable, so it'll come right back at you!

Entered the wrong competition :(

Hi Folks, I have just discovered that I can only enter one contest with an instructable (last time I tried I could choose 3). I found it out when I entered a "well my instructable just about fits" competition and now cannot enter the one it had a chance in!Is there a way to cancel an entry?Regards Rog

Question concerning legality

Hey guys, quick question, I figured this would be a good place to ask it. I have a setup that allows me to record streamed music from, say, Spotify (yes, this is legal, as long as I don't use the recordings commercially) and basically get free mp3 files. If I wanted to use one of these recordings non-commercially in a video on Instructables or anywhere else, would it be legal? Danke schon in advance to any help you guys can give!

Hi, I'm a student and I'm looking for an experienced partner for help with my project :)

Hi, my name's Chaitra and i'm a 17 year old product design student in the UK, doing A level product design.As part of our coursework, we are required to find and interact with an "expert", a person with a good level of understanding of product development and technology.As you might expect, it's quite hard to find someone like this at random, which i why I've come here to see if anyone is willing to collaborate with me :)My coursework will be based on air conditioning, specifically regulating and purifying air conditions during sleep, so it will involve a good amount of electronics and physical design. As the "expert" of my project, we might exchange ideas and offer suggestions to improve the project, and even maybe advice on the best ways to manufacture the final prototype for assessment. You can be as involved as you want to be honest, I appreciate that everyone is busy so you won't be able to commit a huge amount of time to this, but maybe exchanging emails around once a month? I might send over some sketches / cad files over email for you to evaluate and suggest some improvements or ideas on, nothing more than that.If you're willing to help, please answer this topic so we can work something out! Thanks a lot :)PS. this is my first time using instructables, if I've submitted in this wrong place or something, please let me know

Converting Power Source

I am trying to convert an electric string of LED lights to 12 V battery power. (I am using them on my golf cart, which has a 12 V battery and would like to run the lights using a switch that is attached to the battery.). How do I do this? I have attached a photo of what I have.
