Can I use an USB pendrive as MMC card for a digital camera? Answered

A pile of flash drives I gathered inspired me to ask this question. I know you can connect an MMC card to USB socket using a simple adapter. But is it possible to make an "inverted" adapter, that would allow me to use a flash drive as MMC card for my camera? I guess it wouldn't be as simple as etching a MMC-shaped PCB and wiring it to an USB socket, and almost certainly it would require some advanced electronics... The next issue I worry about is writing speed of a pendrive. Would it be sufficient for a camcorder? I was unable to find any ready solution of this problem and I find it strange that nobody has tried it before...

Does anyone have any ideas on how to turn a digital picture frame into an e-book reader?

I've been looking around  for an affordable e-book reader but they all seem to be north of $200. While at the store the other day I passed some digital picture frames that were under $100 that were the right size and shape. The digital picture frame looks like it has all the hardware you'd need: lcd screen, media port, etc, problem is getting them to read pdf files and the like. I thought about finding a way to convert pdf files to jpeg files but that seems like a hassle to do every time I want to read something. Has anyone out there attempted to hack one of those digital frames so that it reads more than just image files?

Waist Level Finder peripheral for a compact digital camera - Street photography!

Posting to here and cross-posting to Photography! Hoping someone can help. I'll be traveling to Japan in a month, and I have a simple point and click digital camera. I was hoping to get some candid street shots as well as in the stores/etc but I've heard people get a little nervous when foreigners are running around photographing stuff. I was researching ways to be a little more inconspicuous with getting photographs and one of the ways I found was a waist level finder. Basically, you can take photographs from your waist, and there's a little screen that points upwards to let you see what you're shooting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waist-level_finder Basically I was wondering if anyone had any ideas how to build one of these things that I could attach to a point and click camera? I imagine it'd be pretty ghetto, like cardboard and mirrors and tape haha. Any ideas would be much appreciated, thanks!

I would like some assistance in designing a digital LED display vacuum/boost gauge for a turbo application. Answered

Hello!   I'm new here. I would like some assistance in designing a digital LED display vacuum/boost gauge with both a linear LED display as well as two seven-segment display modules.   I plan to use a standard automotive MAP sensor to provide the -30Hg to  +30psi signal.   What I envision is having the two seven-segment displays sit next to a row of 28 green LEDs for vacuum to -28Hg, 7 yellow LEDs for pressure from +1psi to +7psi, and 8 red LEDs for pressure from 8psi to +15psi that light up incrementally as the pressure increases or vacuum increases from a center point of zero (clear LED always on).  The problem is that I have absolutely NO idea of where to start other than the layout of the LEDs.  So any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Skullmaster20  (Chris) Edit -----  This is a drawing of what I'm trying to create, and a picture of what I'm going to replace.
