Batch/.bat Programing Answered

I would like to create a variable that is between two preset numbers but they are randomly created that runs in a batch program. For example if I wanted to create a program that would act like a dice where there is a 1/6 chance (for a 6 sided dice) of the dice landing on any number between 1 and 6.

help with .bat file

Ok i asked this in the "slightly more advance .bat file instructable" but i didnt know if anyone would notice it so i will ask it here. When i made my shut down.bat file i would start it and it would run it over and over agian and nothing would happen. Then when i type in command prompt it works. so then i try to do something else like the delete command in my .bat file. It worked but at first it didnt it would pop up and ask me if i wanted to delete it. But that may be becuz it was a directory not a single file. So then i checkd my spelling and everything but it was fine i cant figure out why it kept running it over and over.

Battery less mosquito catcher Bat

There are products like battery operated bats available in the market to kill mosquitoes and insects but there is no battery-less innovation. My invention is very simple and very effective in killing mosquitoes as there is no need for recharging the battery of this mosquito bat. Only a bat and adhesive tape are required to build it. It will work to by trapping and killing mosquitoes. Salient features: (1) there is no need for recharging it. (2) the adhesive tape can be removed and replaced after use. (3) it is a very low cost design so anyone can afford it very easily. (4) it is safe and light weight (5) it can be used many times.

So Bizarre, You Had to Know About This

My Dad sent me this. I suppose it's Halloween appropriate? Weird. Have you ever heard of "Bat Fishing?" Kids out in the countryside come up with creative things to occupy their time. This fellow called in to a radio show ... you have a very light monofilament line on your fishing pole. Tie on a very small hook like you would use for small trout, put a small weight just above the hook, and bait the hook with a little bread. You then toss the hook up over a wire or tree branch in an area where bats are flying around at dusk. Kind of tug or wiggle the line so the bats strike at it. Be patient ... eventually one of them will grab the hook. Then you can fly your bat around in the sky ... kind of like a kite. When the bat becomes exhausted, reel it in, remove the hook, and let it go.

Building a sensor chronograph to measure speed of batted ball

I need a sensor chronograph designed to measure the speed of a batted baseball. It would consist of a frame assembly mounted on a pole in front of home plate in a batting cage. The goal would be for the device to be stationary, able to measure the speed of a batted ball on demand and then displaying it on an LCD positioned 30-60 feet away. It should be automatic and unattended, working without anyone doing anything to activate it other than hitting an oncoming pitch. We are interested in measuring only the batted ball, not the pitched ball from the pitcher or the swing speed of the bat. The measuring area would need to be about 2-6 feet high (depending on how far in front of home plate it is positioned) to accommodate a batted ball that is hit high or low. It should be able to measure the speed of any ball hit fair, from the first base line to the third base line.  The speed of the batted ball would range anywhere from 40 to 130 mph. Since the device would be used on a repetitive, long term basis care would need to be taken during the design to provide for protection from any batted balls that might find their way into the device itself (a piece of screen, chain link or plexiglass installed in front of it?) If you know where I might obtain a working apparatus or might locate someone willing to build one I would appreciate your response to the email address below. Jerry Heath

How do you build a spring loaded baseball bat for a wheel chair?

My 4 year old is wheel chair bound. He is too weak to hold a bat and swing it.. So I want to attach a spring loaded baseball bat to his wheel chair, and all he does is hit a button to swing the bat. The bat would reload manually or ideally automatically. The same concept would work to 'kick' a soccer ball if we just attach the 'tool' lower on the wheelchair.

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.

Recording ultrasonic sound

I looked up at bat detector, a device that converts ultrasonic signals into audible sounds. Most bats produce high frequency calls which are often higher than a human ear can pick up. A bat detector picks up the frequencies and then converts the sound into a lower, audible frequency. I was thinking if I could get a bat detector, I use it to capture the ultrasonic sounds.While bat detector could pick up these high frequencies, it would be interesting to see how it will pick up the faintly heard, to human ears - sounds of the industrialised areas/city or even at isolated/quiet areas. The bat detector I want to use is this - ... _Bat4.html I'm thinking of hooking up the bat detector to a digital recorder and a binaural microphone and capture the sound through those equipments. I would greatly appreciate your suggestions/opinions on this matter.
