Pushing that button

Hey guys, Just wondering if any of you lovely people can help me out here. I'm looking for a fairly simple/cheap thing to build that will press a button continuously on my keyboard (not a program, I need a real life presser ;) ) If the timing could be varied that'd be a plus! Thanks for any ideas in advance, :D

adding a push-button

Howdy! I'd appreciate any advice regarding this potential project.  I would like to take a regular old basic laser pointer and hack it so that I can turn it on and off with a push button, at a short distance, and connected by wire.  The original device may have a rubber button on the side or back, or maybe it's turned on with a twist, or maybe something else. That would have to be left 'on' -- or, better yet, bypassed.  Because I want to be able to activate it by pressing and holding down a button, just like a doorbell. (I suppose flashlights and any number of other devices would work similarly.) For the project I have in mind, having the switch hard-wired to the device would be fine, but naturally I'd love to hear about anyone's wireless ideas! Thanks so much!!!!!

I want to build a push cart with x4 bicycle tyres?

I want to use bicycle wheels with the turn function of two at the back where I would steer and push from. I have no idea how to make this,just have the idea in my head, that it would be just what I need,I picture x2 tyres with the forks at the back with a wide kinda T-handle to steer left or right,other x2 fixed at the front.My main thing I guess would be the axle strength or protection from rugged bush terrain and how or what frame would suit best for what I want.But if I have plans or a tutorial video I'm sure I can.Must be light weight but able to carry 150kg , not wider than 900mm including tyres,if longer than 2metres then is it possble to have it come apart in two pieces?I don't have welding options,where I should weld I plan on drill and nuts+bolts . I've searched all over the internet for 3 days or 5 hrs a day with no luck what so ever. Hope someone can help!

push fit Plumbing Fittings

Shark bite, proline, etc.    They seem to work fine in places that have plenty of room... the sort of places that I'd have no trouble with a solder fitting. But in locations that I almost have to work by braille, places so tight that getting a torch in is nearly impossible, the places that an $8 press fit elbow seems suited for,  in those locations, the press fittings  leak like seives!  Then the release tool wont release the fitting, and it is a huge headache to tear apart. Do they leak if pushed in too far?  if slightly out of alignment?  and if one is in a location where precise alignment isnt gonna happen, Then what to do?

Someone can advice me what switch is suitable to use in my remote control. I had tried push button however it does not compatible with the coding (I'm using chipkit UNO32). My intention is to make the user select AUTO mode or MANUAL Mode. After selecting, the user will be asked to select speed and duration. So this requires a lot of loop-inside-a-loop, if-inside-if etc. When I'm using push button, the microcontroller cannot read the command when the second button is push. I heard, if using push button I need electronic relay.

How about making a small push button device that allows you to push the button each time you want to say "I hate/love/ whatever", along with a sound and a visible counter for number of times the button is pushed? Easy way to decide at the end of the day if you really like this person or not............ The components must be small enough to be able to carry the device in your hand for instant counting.

Push-mower blade removal

Heylo everybody! :) I have a self-propelled mower that I am disassembling for a go-kart (probably). I've gotten everything off of it except for the engine. I know where the bolts are to take if off of the mower deck, but here's the problem: the blade won't come off. I've blocked the blade in both directions and tried to loosen the middle bolt by turning both left and right, but the mower is pretty old and the shaft and bolt are probably rusted to craps. I also attempted shearing off the bolt with a crowbar and hammer, as well as cutting the head of the bolt off with a Sawzall. The bolt dulled all the teeth on the metal blade for the Sawzall and dented the crowbar's edges. So does anybody have any suggestions? I'm really at a loss on this one. I don't have access to a grinder or plasma cutter, which would seriously help out a lot. I was thinking about picking up a cold chisel from the store, but if I'm just being an idiot and turning in the wrong direction or something obvious, I'd rather know that than lop off a bolt and lose some of the hackability of the engine. Thanks!   - basementhacker

Hello everyone! Im planning on doing a thingy like this for my son, can it work? Im going to use a 3V 1A power source to connect 3 push buttons to a common cathode led, like on the image included. I was planning to use this led: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2p-10mm-RGB-LED-Common-Cathode-4-Pin-Tri-Color-Red-Green-Blue-3v-6v-9v-12v-FCL4P-/290802586540?hash=item43b52f53ac:m:m6IDFR2pATn4PfCbuH-kqzw and switches like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/152146897080?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName;=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT is says: Light Voltage DC 3V In my mind it looks like this: if u push the red, the led will turn red, and u can add additional colors to it with the other 2 buttons. Could this work? If I figured it out good, I wont need a resistor for the blue and green, but I will need one for the red. How big it should be? Is it a good setup that I solder the positive to the switches and the black/negative to the one led? Can I add an another lead from the power supply to an another independent switch and single color led?

Wireless or bluetooth rechargeable button attached to PC with a dongle

Hi, I am trying to find details of a cheap wireless/bluetooth largish 3 or 4 inch single button that uses a dongle connected to a Windows PC via USB.  It'll be used for push-to-talk type stuff. It should be rechargeable via USB (a mini connector, or some such thing).  While the button is held down it should send some kind of signal to the PC, and any advice on how I can detect that in C# would be appreciated.  There should also be a status light that will show green when the unit has sufficient charge, red when the button is pressed and blinking yellow when the battery is running low. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks reaxion

I have been googleing this like crazy and cannot find anything close enough related to what I am trying to do.  I would like to be able to (ideally) use an iphone or ipad to send a wireless signal to a circuit board that then tells a piston (button pushing) mechanism to push the cylindrical on button on my computer.  It doesn't have to be a wireless signal, I could settle for less considering my lack of expertise in the area.  I am however confident in soldering and some scripting, which I thought about using a raspberry pi might work for this, especially for the wireless part of the project, but I would prefer still something with even less overhead.  If anyone has any ideas or direction that would be awesome.

Excercise car?

What I am designing (and planning on working on very soon) is a vehicle with the possible speed of a gokart, but with a propulsion system similar to a bike. The mechanism itself would be a simple push pedal (like a car) but with a gear system like a bicycle. Upon pushing down the pedal, a shaft connected too it would then push against the foremost gear. and that gear would push another and so on until it comes in contact with the rear wheel, propelling it forward. A simple spring between the pedal and floor will allow the pedal to return to the original position. However I cannot seem to get the steering and brake system down right. Should the steering be that of a car and use 2 wheels on the front with a long axel connecting the 2? or more like a bike, with a one wheel turning system. (aka. should it be a 4 wheel or 3 wheel? Might depend on weight distribution and balance, though both could be possible.) and how should the brakes be arranged? a pedal, like a normal car brake, or a stick beside the driver, like an emergency break, as well as where the brake pad would come into contact with the rear. On the axel or on the wheels? Last (and most definitely not the least) is that while this vehicle must be sturdy, it must also be light weight. So any and all material recommendations for parts would be greatly appreciated. (cheap would also be appreciated) (My thought for material) chasis - light, but firm (strong) wood. axels - aluminum or steel tires - Gokart/ riding lawn mower turning wheel/steering - wood or plastic seat - whatever I can find that's soft (not a major thing) safty belt - I may not be able to test out the prototype (kinda thick) so I need the crash test dum *ahem* "driver" to survive incase a crash were to happen. brake pad - rubber so that it causes the right amount of friction but not enough to damage any parts.

Brainstorming - Teamspeak PTT Bluetooth Device

Gurus of the Tech World, First off, I'm browsed through a lot of great idea and I've got to say, you all are geniuses.  Hopefully, someone can help steer me in the right direction.  I have made a few Windows Phone apps, made a few HTML websites and some networking fundamentals, but I've never really made a device... much less soldered a board. With that said, I want my first project to be a Bluetooth Push-to-Talk (PTT) button for Teamspeak.  I have a Bluetooth headset with a microphone for Teamspeak (VOIP PC Application) so I can hear people speaking while being away from the computer but I do not have a way to communicate back using the Push-to-Talk method. So, what I want to do is make a small Bluetooth device, maybe powered by a 9V, with a single PTT button, and maybe an ON/OFF switch to save power.  My thought is to program it so that it send a keystroke to my computer for the duration that the PTT button is pressed (CTRL would be ideal).  This is something that I want to make, using as much of my brain as possible and the least amount of prefabricated merchandise ("omg, just buy a bluetooth dongle and plug it into a button. ta-da"). I'm sure that this is something you guru's can do blindfolded, but, please, point me in the right direction... and use baby words. Thanks! Stryker2k2 (@stryker2k2)

Tentacular awesomeness pushes limits of body image

From The Design Blog, via NOTCOT: Pushing the boundaries of current upper-limb prosthetic design, designer Kaylene Kau has created a prosthetic arm that supports the dominant functioning hand in accomplishing day-to-day tasks with ease and efficiency. Featuring a flexible design, the prosthetic arm adjusts to allow a variety of different grips to hold a variety of objects with minimum fuss. The Prosthetic Arm also integrates motors and cables, which help the user control the amount of arm curls required for different tasks. Presenting a simple yet effective design, the new prosthetic limb makes users self-reliant, as they can carry out their everyday tasks without any assistance. Of course, any advances in prosthetics is welcome, but I bet the first thoughts of most people reading this here were either Cool!  I could be an octopus! or Woah - I want one of those on my next Hallowe'en costume! I'd really like to see a video of it in action - I can't decide if it would be cool or creepy. I also imagine that an arm like this would be (relatively) easy to engineer for the amateur.
