Control of 25 electromagnets

Hello Everyone, I'm looking for a controller to manage 25 electromagnets. I've managed to come up with a driver circuit to energise each individual electromagnet using an N channel eMOSFET in parrallel with a diode. I need a programmable controller to operate the gate of each eMOSFET but the controller must be capable of managing all 25 switches. thanks for any suggestions in advance.

Hello guys!    My sons Nerf Vulcan's barrel does not rotate. I opened it up and found out that the little spring that makes the hook come back to its normal state, no longer does that. I was wondering how I can fix it. Here are some pictures of it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

How am I supposed to increase the range of my Nerf Vulcan EBF-25? (Without cracking the gun open)

I have a Nerf Vulcan EBF-25 but I think the range is not enough for me.I need someone to help me increase the range of the automatic firing because I have a rival in Nerf who doesn't understand that the Nerf Vulcan EBF-25 is better than his Rapid Fire 20. (Actually I think a Rapid Fire is really better than a Nerf Vulcan EBF-25 because you just pump before a Nerf War and then just casually shoot anyone who dares come to you.)

Help with SMD marking!

Hello, I recently had a tablet to repair and this SMD IC was damaged: "C03AE". I can't figure out exactly what it is. Results I got range from LDO to Power switch to overcurrent protection. Does anyone know or have the datasheet for the latter? Its SOT-25 package. The tablet works fine without the IC (can charge, work on wall adapter only, etc). Here are some voltage readings WRT to ground (pin 2) and battery at 36% charge (pin numbering as per picture) Case 1: display ON, charger not connected: Pin 1, 3 and 4: 0.00V Pin 5: 3.64V Case 2: display OFF, charger not connected Same as case 1 Case 3: display ON, charger connected Pin 1: 4.74V Pin 3 and 4: 0.00V Pin 5: 4.64V Case 4: display OFF, charger connected Pin 1: 5.11V Pin 3 and 4: 0.00V Pin 5: 4.74V Any help is greatly appreciated.

$25 Million for Capturing Carbon

Gore and Branson have teamed up to sponsor an X-prize-like competition for capturing carbon dioxide. I love these types of competitions. Is anyone here on Instructables in a position to enter? With a bit of industry-sponsorship, this would make for a series of fantastic Ph.D projects. From: multi-million dollar prize is on offer to anyone who can invent a device that will remove significant amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. As one of the largest science prizes on offer, it is likely to attract huge interest globally in a bid to combat climate change.The initiative was launched today by British billionaire entrepreneur Richard Branson and former US Vice-President Al Gore in London.The US$25 million "Virgin Earth Challenge" Prize can be claimed for any invention that will remove "significant" amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere - perhaps in the order of a billion tonnes a year. Current global emissions are more than 7 billion tonnes per year."The winner must be able to demonstrate a commercially viable design which will result in the net removal of anthropogenic, atmospheric, greenhouse gases each year for at least ten years without countervailing harmful effects," state the written rules of the competition. It must "contribute materially to the stability of the Earth's climate".The winning entry could be anything from manufacturing bacteria to install in industrial emissions pipes, to creating a system that buries CO2 underground, or even inventing artificial trees to breathe in the gas from the air.

A good deep vacuum pump? Answered

I'm looking for a vacuum pump for use with projects like the fusor included in make magazine, a laser tube, or a plasma ball.  It doesn't need to move huge amounts of air, but nothing below 1.5 lpm.  It also needs to have an ultimate vacuum of at most 25 microns.  I have been unable to locate any pumps which meet these standards, all of them have ultimate vacuums of around 100 to 75 microns or are completely unlisted.  Do any of you have some experience with these and some advice.  I don't need something for pumping out heating/cooling units daily, just a very deep vacuum a couple times a month.

Anyone know anything about old (60's) guitar amps?

I picked up old a Jansen eight 25. It's in not bad condition, apart from a dodgy tube socket and a missing dial, all of which can be repaired easily. Anyway, I was looking on-line and could not find any data for it other than it's a early 60's amp. Seems to work great. the unit is about 2feet wide and 1.5 feet tall. Made in New Zealand. So I was wondering if anyone could provide me with more data on this, if it is worth anything. If it is not, then it would make a interesting teardown.

Actuated Matter Workshop / Zurich / July 25-29

APPLY NOW !!!! The Actuated Matter workshop explores the application of smart materials and their ability to transform space into responsive, adaptive environments. We will develop a speculative model for membrane structures that exhibit properties of sensitivity, resilience, and decay. By physically engaging with the behaviours of active materials, we experiment with the threshold between the electronic and mechanic, the analog and the digital. The workshop follows a do-it-yourself approach and will result in the development of sonic, luminous and moving modules that will populate and activate the environment. This workshop is part of a recent research initiative called “Emotive Environments” and emerges from a collaboration between ZHDK's Institute for Computer Music and Sound Technology (, the Interaction Design Institute (, ETH's Chair for Computer Aided Architectural Design ( and London based Loop.pH Design Research Studio ( Participants will work in small groups, each be led by someone with experience in the particular field of research. The workshop will be complemented by a final presentation and unveiling event, where you are also invited to come see the results, if you cannot attend the workshop. The workshop is free of charge.

Proximity Sensor 1' - 25'; Bat Ears for a Blind Woman

First of all, I'm a noob in electronics, so please explain your jargon as you would to a 3 year old. I am smart & learn quickly. So, I really want to make my blind 80 year-old grandmother a pair of bat ears. I bought her one of those sonic distance measureres from home-depot because of the barely audible tic they send out to bounce off wall/etc and record the time it takes the signal to return. You can hear the tic, and with your eyes closed.. you can kinda tell how far things are away from you just by listening. She loves it, and it just barely.. kinda works. What I"m shooting for is a single over-ear headphone (xbox-live communicator style) with some type of proximity sensor attached, sending a constant signal to the headphone... low for long distances, gradually higher for gradually closer distances. Any reasonable suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
