wireless

Are all wireless products such as cell phones or ummm.... home phones and everything else that doesn't use IR, use pulsed magnetic wave, or supersonic sound? I'm making a wireless power device that pulses magnetic fields, is this dangerous to my health? I don't want to be a mutant or be sterile or anything.

wireless screen

What would be the best way to make a wireless display? A display that can be carried around (within like 30ft which seems to be fairly standard for wireless). It would need some batteries to power it I imagine, but I have no idea how you would go about sending and receiving the video signal. If anyone has any ideas, that would be great! Not a laptop, just a display, no other functions.

wireless monitor

Hi all, I'm in for my first topic: i'll get a new pc soon, and I wanted do install a 2nd monitor, not far away from my bed, so it would be easy to watch films. The pc would stand in the same room. Is there an easy way to connect an (old) tv, or a monitor (wireless) to your pc? Thnx Arnout PS, I'm from Belgium, so sorry for my English ;)

Wireless Interface? Answered

Hello, Instructables.      I know it seems like I ask too many questions and post too little ibles, But trust me. I'm working on one right now. And thats why I am here. I am working on a wireless snes controller for PC, and am having problems finding a wireless interface for it. I know theres the XBee, which, being on a limited budget, is off the table. theres Bluetooth, which i have VERY little expirience in, but considering that just makes it sound like it would be fun, and, last but not least, there is InfaRed, which, having recently recieved a IR LED assortment from Electronic Goldmine, might be an option. i will look more into BT, since i do have a bluetooth enable pc anyway.

Wireless Power?

OK so recently I have noticed that almost any sort of power can be converted into a different type, sorta. Anyways, it takes power to create radio waves or any wireless wave. Would it be possible to just send out plain radio waves and get something to pick them up and convert them into usable power? Now I know the farther you were from the source, the weaker the power would get, so you might have too send out a fair voltage signal to get some good range. Also, would it interrupt any electronics in range or anything like that? I was just thinking about this and wondering if it is even possible to get actual wireless power around your house or something without using batteries or interrupting anything in your house. Thanks.

Wireless CameraI? Answered

Hi, is there anyway to attach a camera to a ROV, robot, RC car/plane? I was thinking maybe using like a radio transmitter to transmit the signal or whatever. Also accepting non-radio ideas. Oh, and the smaller the better, and long antennas=not an option. (Maybe a dish, but no antenna, atleast not the long kind).

Wireless charging? Answered

So i would like to make a simple wireless charger for an ipod (ok ok its not so simple once you factor in the ipod) but i want it to be able to show a charging sign.... also it would be nice if it waould work from one or two feet apart minimum. I heard guys at MIT made one for a 60 watt lamp that worked 2 meters away... so its possible... i can probably order any circuitry if it is reasonably priced and available at digikey or mouser. :) I have access to several ipods so it doesnt really matter what model i use. I also know that this would probably make a huge electromagnetic wave... possibly? idk... but if it is big enough to destroy nearby electronics i might not want to try... So i am all for distance- the farther the better.... Also base power is not an issue, i can use a wall wart if i need to...i can just see an ipod touch with 500 passes of wire around it 5 feet away from a 2 foot square power station..... all while erasing my hard drive :) Soo.... im coming back to reality for a min.... anybody know any sites....any formulas too!! Thx! :) :)

Wireless headphone with Microphone

Can anybody tell me how to make a wireless headphone and microphone. Both microphone and headphones should be wireless. I found that one can buy a wireless headphone or a wireless microphone, but not a combination of both. Why I need it. I make long phone calls, during which I need to walk around. If I use a cordless phone, I have to keep holding the receiver with one hand all the time. If I use a speakerphone, everybody around listens to the conversation. Therefore I need one wireless headphone with mic.

Clear Wireless Router?

I'm thinking about subscribing to Clear Wireless.. they want a $7 mo lease for the router. 1. Is their router proprietary or can I buy some generic wireless at Walmart or such? What do I buy? don't need anything fancy. 2. Radio Shack is carrying their product. The guy was going to give me the USB router but I'm worried I have to sign up for the $45 mobile service rather than the $35 home version. And money is super tight for me. If I buy a wireless printer will I have to buy a router to access it if I have the mobile/USB version? Thanks in advance to all you wise ones that help me.

Wireless internet receiver? Answered

Is there any device that you can plug into your router in one room, and then connects wirelessly to a receiver in another room, and then that connects to a device such as a laptop? What I am looking to do is take the ethernet jack that is in my moms office and hook the transmitter up to it. Then take then take the wireless receiver and put it in my room to hook it up to my Apple Time Capsule. From the Time Capsule I would send the wireless signal to my laptop sitting right next to it. If you are thinking I could just hook my Time capsule up to the modem in my moms office, thats the way we have it set up right now, which gives me a very weak internet signal, if any, so if there is any device that will do this it has to send out a stronger signal than the Time Capsule. If you don't understand what I was saying you can look ant the diagram below. Is this possible?

Wireless Button Pusher

Hello all, I am trying to add/build a wireless button pusher to a grain management device on my farm. The device cannot be hacked into or tampered with, however, the button I am trying to push requires little force and does not need to be sustained. It only needs to hit the button when I hit a remote. Additionally, I cannot use a phone for this (my grandfather needs to be able to operate it as well and could not use a phone) So I would need to be able to connect two simple remotes.  Any and all suggestions welcome.

Wireless Turn Signals

I have toyed around with the idea of making a jacket that has the turn signals and/or brake lights on the back. However, there is a twist, I would like to see a controller box to wirelessly send the signal from a scooter to the jacket. When the turn signals and brakes are used on the scooter it sends a wireless signal to the controller in the jacket which relays that to lights on the back of the jacket. I've seen some jackets with lights wired on to them controlled with an arduino.

Upgrading wireless card? Answered

I bought an Atheros wireless-N mini PCI-E card for an HP DV7 series laptop, to replace the Broadcom wireless-G card, however, when installed, I just get a bios error "unsupported network card". I removed it and restarted with the original card and it works fine. I trhen tried installing the card live, and it detected it and installed the software, but then BSOD (my first one for Windows 7 actually), so I swapped back to the original card again. I then installed the card in the secondary bay, live, and it installed the drivers successfully, but when swapped with the original card again (the wires don't reach to the other bay), it failed to boot again. How can I replace the original card?

So I bought one of these to play with: http://www.ebay.com/itm/130935883579 The transmitter board always gets really hot and smells faintly of something burning.  Is this normal?  Should I use some type of heat sink? Anyway, I discovered that you can add another coil of the same-ish size to the transmitter, and both coils will work.  However, if I remove the coil and add a single coil twice the size, it does not work.  I'm curious as to why.  What determines how large the coil can be?
