Ipod nano? Answered

Ok... so I have an Ipod nano 8GB. My questions are,  is there a way to put games on it without using rockbox and if not then does rockbox make it to where the normal ipod os  no longer works or will  it be an optional thing which one runs?

Arduino Nano as ISP Programmer?

I was excited to find out that an arduino could be used as an ISP programmer. But when I found out that the arduino uno does not support this feature, my dreams were crushed. I did recently buy an arduino nano and was wondering if I could use this as an ISP programmer. Any thoughts? Thanks for the help!

Creating copper nano particles

Be it conductive ink, decorations or just a special pigment for your paint project, Copper is nice.Only problem is grinding this soft metal fine enough to be of any good use.A not so well documented feature of food additives is that they often have "unwanted" side effects.In our case E300, Ascorbic Acid or just Vitamin C.So how to make copper nano particles with it you might wonder?Prepare a well saturated solution of Copper Sulphate, you find the blue crystals in the gardening section together with fertilisers.It is best to use destilled water and not plain tap water, if in doubt go at least with the demineralised stuff for batteries.Adding E300 either dissolved in water or directly as crystals will start a nice reaction.The copper solphate is reduced back to metallic copper.There are a few problems though...For best results you need a saturation copper sulphate solution, low temperatures and a magnetic stirrer.This produced the finest particles for me at around 5°C.But even warm or at room temp the constant sirring is beneficial for even particle sizes.The ascorbic acid is used up in the process as well.You can start with a little and see how much you end up with in terms of a layer of copper particles at the bottom.Adding more E300 will cause a "rain" of fine copper particles - once this no longer happens you know the copper sulphate is used up as well.A dark greenish color of the solution will indicate this as well.Getting the copper out of the glass...Keep in mind the copper is extreme fine!As long as it stays in the solution it won't oxidize or otherwise react.Once out and in contact with just water and air oxidation happens quickly, after all it is pure copper...I found removing the watery solution and then adding destilled water to repeat the process is a good start.The waste from the first round can still be usefull though...In the final round I try to remove as much water as I can and then add methyled spirit to prevent the reactions.You can use oil as well or do a quick vacuum drying and store it in a sealed and oxygen free container.What to do with it?As a condictive paint with the right binder it only needs some rubbing with a smooth tool to create a conductive cover with a low resistance.In a clear paint or resin it provides some stunning color effects.You can even dust the dry powder onto a freshly painted surface to get a copper look.Leave without a top coat and you quickly get an old copper or even green look.If you ever wanted extreme fine metal particles you will come up with more ideas...Like shielding or sintering....

Arduino Nano Every Question

I'm not entirely familiar with the concept of how volts work and what-not, but does anybody know a 12v wall connector that I could plug into the breadboard for the Nano Every and 3 12v LED strips to draw power from? Would I have to convert a greater amount of volts to 12v to leave enough power for everything?

HELP!!!! IPOD NANO BUTTON NOT WORKING!!!!!

Ok.... So I just pushed the power button to change the song on my Ipod Nano (6th Generation) to change the song (U2's Crumbs From Your Table).  It didn't work. The button is sort of limp and doesn't click anymore like the + and - buttons for the volume. I can't turn it off or change the song. Only turn the same song's volume up or down and listen. This is the worst part - I'm in Japan as an exchange student. Not only have I lost access to lots of Western culture (keeping me sane), but this fix also has to be super cheap and easy. I'd also rather not mess this Ipod up. PLEASE HELP!!!!  - basementhacker

Tim's Cybot conversion to Arduino NANO

Hi all.I'm doing a new project.Dug out my Cybot. The one built on a fortnightly issue of Real Robots back in 2001.I decided to convert it to use the Arduino NANO. With Bluetooth and Infrared Control.I haven't finished it yet, so I haven't done an instruction here, I thought I would wait until I have finished the project before doing that.However, as it's quite a lengthy project, I have started a blog on my google+. Which I am updating as I progress with the project.Here is the link: Tim's Cybot conversion to Arduino NANO Blog.Before I started I had a search on the net to see if anyone else had done this, but all I found was basic stuff controlling the drive motors.Currently I have done a rough sketch (some fine tuning still needs to be done) for it that lets you:Control it via bluetooth,Set it in line follow mode,Set it in light follow mode,Set it in avoidance modeandControl it with an Infrared Remote.I'm sure there is still a lot of these Cybots out there, so i thought their may be some interest.

Universally compatible ipod video size? Answered

Hey again- while working on itunes and ripping our DVD library to ipods (using handbrake), i had the entire library created with the screen size for a 5g ipod nano. I recently got an Ipod touch 4g with retina display- so I have been re-ripping the library for the larger screen. Now i have copies of High and low quality videos (because some in our family still use nanos), so is there a setting for videos that looks good on retina displays, but can be played on a nano too? so that i could only use one copy at a time (having 2 copies is increasing my library size a lot more than i would like) I am on a mac- use handbrake for DVD ripping but would be fine using other freeware :) -Astroboy907

It should be pretty simple, could someone help me with the code? I'd put the exact values in after I know them. Also, if its possible for qn arduino nano? (So its smaller) thanks

Nanotech makes white LEDs 5x brighter than before with warmer light.

New research with nanocrystals has created a new LED that gets 300 lumens per watt. Even better, the light is a warm white and not the cold blue-tinted white that we all know.The crystals absorb some of the LED's blue output and emit their own red and green light. That combines with the remaining blue light to produce a soft white glow.Existing commercial white LEDs are also based on blue LEDs. But they use a phosphor coating that converts some blue light into a broad spectrum of yellow light. When mixed with remaining blue light the result is a harsh blue-hued white. Link

Micro LEDs... How can I power them in the smallest footprint possible???

Hi - I've been a "member" for 5 years now, but unfortunately never submitted projects... I'm more of an observer than a teacher :) I have this project I've been thinking of for quite some time now, but I simply cannot come up with a way to make it real. It's pretty simple, I just want to be able to light up an extremely small LED in a very small amount of space. But, I'm finding the power source is the headache. I wanted to get input or suggestions from anyone willing to share/help me! Basically, I have a 5mm diameter space (x approx 7mm high) to work with... and this would be to house the LED, power source and any type of on/off control or switch. My initial thoughts were toss in a micro LED, run it off of a wireless coil or super small battery and control it with a magnetic latching switch for on/off control. But, since the original idea popped up, it appears for wireless power the coil would need to be too large to fit in this space. For battery power, I've found very small 1.5V watch batteries that I could stack in a pair for 3V, but I've learned they would likely only run an LED for about 15-20 mins before they'd die. If they were wireless, I'd want some free range of motion and distance on the LEDs, being able to light up at least 6 ft. or so from the power source, if possible. This is driving me crazy! Can it be done, without costing a ton of money to develop?
