Anyone have any capacitors laying around?

Hey, I'm doing some electrical engineering projects and I need some capacitors. Anything flash-capacitor-ish sized or bigger is best. Thanks, Ben

Help needed!

Hi! I'm kind of new here, and I need some help. I have remote control dump truck in 1:14 scale, and I'm going to make a trailer for it. The truck itself has lights (blinkers, reverse, brake, standlight, etc.). So would it be possible to make some kind of wireless control system for trailer lights, so I don't need to connect always cable to the trailer? There is one wireless control system for situations like this, but it's so expensive.   I have been thinking about making it with IR leds. Is it possible to make it work by connecting IR led to for example reverse light's cable and then some kind of IR receiver to trailer? Give me some ideas and if you have some solutions or something that would help, let me know. :) Thanks for help ( my english may be bad, i'm from finland :D )

Need Ideas

This is the first place that popped into my mind when I decided I needed a new idea. I am in a Photography class at my high school and I need help getting some ideas thrown at me. And no, this wouldn't be cheating since I'm not taking your ideas directly. I just think better when there are different ideas flying around. Basically the assignment is to shoot a frame within a frame photograph. Meaning the subject in the picture is framed by something. It doesn't have to be a literal frame, like something out of wood or steel. For example, the subject's face can be framed by their arms and hands. A couple things to keep in mind is no animals, no artwork (as in preexisting), and of course nothing that would be distasteful in a school setting.

Looking for help with my new project. I want to power my mechanical arm using hydraulics.  I would prefer to use a joystick controller.  I want this arm to be able to hold a hedge cutting machine. The arm will have the same freedom of movement as a human arm. Eventually I want to use this arm on a machine such as a bobcat or similar device. For now I just need to be able to power this arm and then I can go from there. Anyone up for a challenge????

Help Needed

I've almost finished my M4 SOPMOD. One problem. I need help making a SOPMOD kit. If you want to help, you can be a collaborator in the 'ible.  Also, for my next project, I would like to make an XM29 OICW. I've included a picture for those of you who don't know what that is. I'd like it to be a collaborative project. Hopefully, The top portion would be a repeating mag fed sling (Pseudo-Semi auto?), and the bottom part would be a mag fed repeater (semi auto?). they would be modular, and be able to fire separately. Also, it would be cool if when connected, they both fired with the same trigger.  If pulled off right, this project could be very innovate, and advance knex considerably. That is, if good range could be achieved. Also, it would be an awesome replica. I'm not sure which part I'll do, but it'd be great if some people wanted to be part of it, and if these people had some good ideas for mechs.

It seems to me that not many people are voting in the Flower Contest.Of course, I have a vested interest, but I noticed that, when I first voted for Kitewife (well, you have to, don't you?), her 'ible jumped to fourteenth - that's nearly half way up the field.If one vote can have such an effect, then there can't be many votes being cast.Even if you didn't enter, even if you don't like flowers, these people have put a lot of work (and humour) into their entries, so at least have a look at them and vote for the deserving ones.Look, no spam - this is a sincere posting.

Inventors needed

Dear inventors and instructors, Let me welcome my self , my name is Arylic Singh and i have just started a small company called : Arylic which is divided into three small component companies which include Arylic Robotics, Arylic Green and Arylic Inventions. You see the main goal of our new business plan is to use the least amount of money on the publicity and the advertisements and gain as much profit on the sales. So our objectives now is to look for young and old inventors and makers and make deals with them for their invention or products. So what we do here is we take the idea or plan or prototype of the invention or product and manufacture it under the companies name but their would be a deal that 30% of every sales goes to the inventor. There is a advantage to the inventor because he/she does not need to put any money into the manufacturings. SO now we are looking for new and fresh inventions and inventors to join our company and sit back and eat the creams........ Pm me for further information or post here.

Identification needed!

Hi there, I'm messing around with a cheap Chinese camera I got a while back and was looking to replace the rather poor camera with a nicer, clearer one. I'm a complete newbie at doing this as this is as far as I can get!! It seems there is a clip in camera for the circuit board but now I have no idea how to search for another compatible one to buy online. I've typed in 'camera circuit board replacement' and 'clip in camera part' etc. etc. but to no avail. Here are some also rather poor images of the camera in question but hopefully it's enough for someone to point me in the right direction of another replacement module that would snap in and work! Thanks! Josh
