Opinions please: EMS "Meggy Jr"

OK, I keep saying I ought to learn to solder properly. I ought to learn to programme chips. I ought...Well, you get the idea.So, I was browsing Evil Mad Scientist, and I came across Meggy Jr. It's a kit, you solder it, you can programme it. Ticks all the boxes, no?But, all I have to go on are EMS' own comments - looking for reviews, all I find are reports of its existence, plus silly comments from people who haven't used it. I haven't found any video of it being played, and I can't tell if it makes any sounds.Has anybody used it? Is it any good? Is it worth splashing out $130+? (This isn't an immediate purchase - probably in the New Year.)

What is the purpose of spark gaps in Tesla coils, spark gap transmitters, etc.?

From what I can tell they keep the high voltage from interfering with mains power, but that doesn't make sense to me?

Can permanent magnets cause interference when placed alongside cables? Answered

I'm wondering if I can safely use neodymium disc/button magnets alongside cables without causing interference? I know that interference can be induced from an alternating magnetic field e.g. transformer coils, but not too sure if a magnet in a fixed position would have the same effect? There's a project that I have in mind that would use these magnets to secure a fabric around cables holding them together. A single 5mm button magnet on one edge of the material would attract to a metal disc embedded in the opposite edge. The cables will mainly connect to audio / visual equipment so it's important to avoid any interruptions or distortions of the signal along the way. Can anybody help?

Bom dia, parabéns por este trabalho lindo, lindo porque o objetivo é deixar pessoas mais independentes, aproveitar melhor a vida, com estes recursos que vocês pesquisam e disponibilizam, o  triste é que os mais simples, com menor poder aquisitivo não conseguem tê-los. Temos um grande numero de pessoas aguardando protese auditiva, gostaria de que me ajudassem a descobrir grande centro de referencia com a melhor tecnologia para verificar a possibilidade de cadastrá-los e serem atendidos gratuitamente. Mas mesmo que não  seja dado retorno a mim deste email, gentileza me ajudar a saber quais são os melhores centros no Brasil principalmente sudeste qual tecnologia usada, quais  tipos de proteses existem, como funcionam como se dá manutenção, se existe grupos de usuários de protese, e também para transplante de coclea, muito obrigada. Seria um milagre e algo incomparável de ótimo, eu agradeço. Bom dia a todos Deus os ilumine para que conseguir grandes vitórias nesta área.

Combichrist Shrunken Heads quote.

Does anyone know where the quote from the Combichrist song Shrunken Heads For All Occasions comes from? If you haven't heard the song, there is a voice saying "Now, shrunken heads for all occasions, collect 'em, swap 'em, give 'em to your witchdoctor friends". I've tried searching for it, but with no luck whatsoever.

Any ways to block the EM waves from my solid state Tesla coil?

Hi guys, I'm working on a small solid state Tesla coil (Slayer exciter) and every time I test it, the internet router stops working and peoples don't really appreciate it when it happens. The router is about 25-40 feet away but my brother's computer is in the same room about 10 feet away but is connected with an Ethernet cable that might act as an antenna? I know that all the touch lamps in the house goes crazy so I really need to find a way to stop the EM waves to interfere with the electronics in the house. I thought about putting the coil in a earth grounded metal cage but have no idea if it would work and if there is any other ways to do it. Any help?

Building a capacitor charging unit

I was looking for a HowTo on building a capacitor charging unit. I saw a thread on a forum a while back that said you could create a large EM Pulse by sending a huge current down a coil of wire. I was looking about wiring up a bunch of these 220uF caps from Maplin;=12777&doy;=28m9#specThey are the last ones on the list.Would a few of these be sufficient to produce a large EM field, one that could fry sensitive electronic equipment. And how would i go about charging them all to the full capacity.Also while on this topic, would this be an efficient way of generating an EM pulse, or could you suggest any other ways of doing so.

eletronic stimulation device
