How to split a video image into four?

I've been trying to think if there is a way to split a video image into four or more parts (like split-screen) so that each part can be displayed on a separate screen. With this, I was hoping to make a big screen from several smaller LCD monitors which could also be split up for some gaming. In my head I've figured that the easiest would be to run through a computer or shuttle in which the programme could split an image into separate channels, and then have as many out ports from the shuttle to each of the screens. Essentially what I'm asking is if anyone has done this before and if so, how please?

Bravit Candle

Has anyone seen those Bravit Candles? I've thought about instead of buying some I'd like to make my own (I could also customize the path of the wick then). Any ideas about the best way to make something like these? I'm thinking fix the wick then pour in a layer of wax,say an inch or two, then cool it. Wait for it to solidify (or mostly) then move the direction of the wick and pour in another layer of wax, wait for it to cool and repeat. Any other thoughts?

Bass (guitar) signal spilt + combine

Hello I have been thinking about a project that I would like to try. The idea is that I would like to be able to take the signal from my bass guitar and split it in two (configurable how much signal in each, but the sum should be 100%), apply an effect to one of the lines and then combining the two signals again having only applied the effect to some of the signal while carrying the clean signal through. This way I could apply e.g. distortion to only 20% of the signal. I thought that I could control the volume simply by putting an resistor in the signal line, but this gave quite some noise. This is my first attempt at building electronics for instruments, but have some experience with electronics in general. Hope you can help me with a couple of questions: 1) Shouldn't you be able to lower the signal simply by resistors? Should you use any specific resistors for audio? 2) Is it possible to recombine two audio signals and can you just put the wires together? Kind Regards Brian

USB Y Split for power

I've just got a simple question, which I was surprised to not find anywhere. A long time ago, I had a portable drive which had a single usb cable to two ends. One end had data + power, and the other end had just power. This was to supply more than 5v to the drive. I want to recreate this, do I need to do anything except splice another cable (with just the power + ground) into the one I have? Do I need to put anything in between them? Thanks, Ivan

Why did my avocado split?

I did something totally different. I tried the toothpicks insert in the avocado...waited forever. Nothing. Then I just stuck it in a potted soil container (say about 3 weeks) and I water it mostly everyday...(moist). Then I noticed that my seed (pointed side up) cracked all the way down and it looks kinda brown, like mush. I do notice that a small "root" is sneaking out...Is this the process? What do I do now?  This is my first time ever growing an avocado. Thanks so much.

Coax Antenna 4-Way Splitting Help?

I am having troubles splitting my antenna to 4 T.V's, all digital, ( set top boxes inside ). As you can see in the image, I have split the antenna 4 times, all the 3 TV's inside the house are working, but the external shed cannot pick up a signal. ( Shed in green ) It seems to almost pick up a station when scanning for channels, but they are still hidden behind blur, distortion and ants running over the screen. No channels pick up after scan is complete. The cable was dug underground through conduit sleeve to the shed from the splitter. The red "Mains" cable is about half a meter away from the aerial conduit line. Is this a problem? Am I needing a mast amplifier? Or a "Booster" somewhere? Help would be much appreciated, thank you.

piezo reacting from splitting power to multiple things

I have two attiny85s that I'm powering with a single 3v battery.  One of these is connected to a piezo (so lights will flash when tapped).  However, the second one keeps affecting the power enough to set off the piezo reaction frequently without tapping.  I don't want to use two separate batteries.  How do I split the power between the two without them affecting each other? Thanks.

Possible to hack a retro clock into a split-flap display?

I've been wanting to make a split-flap display board for a while and hook it up to display various messages/times for my office, however building one from scratch seems to be very expensive due to the motors and parts involved. Is it possible to take a retro-style flap clock and repurpose it to be one of these displays? I haven't been able to find anyone attempting this before, despite it seeming (to me) like a pretty good way to get around the issue of the expensive step motors and gears involved, considering the relatively cheap cost of retro clocks online. Any ideas or opinions? Sort of new to this whole endeavour but willing to do the legwork in executing on the idea if it is possible.

Is there and IC that splits input voltages to 8 or 10 output voltages in sequence? Answered

Not sure if that was the right way to ask the question. But, heres what I what I want to do: Using a 9V battey. I would like to light 8, 10, or perhaps more LEDs, not simultaneously but one by one in a sequence. And in asking that, I was going to use a 555 to turn that input signal into a square wave, then perhaps an integrator to make that squarewave spike then dim out. What I am trying to make is a "jar of fireflies" for my daughter. I would build the above circut, maybe two in the same house. So that each LED flares, dims over a moment, goes out, then the next LED starts in sequence. So, is there a IC that does something like that. And secondly, would an integrator (R-C-Ground) work with that DC supply? Thanks in advance for you help and advice.

First image uploaded to web - subjects of photo splitting up (don't tell Kelseymh!)

From the BBC: An all-female doo-wop band whose image is believed to have been the first photo uploaded to the fledgling world wide web is to play its final gig. Les Horribles Cernettes take their swansong at the Hardronic Festival at the Cern laboratory in Geneva - the birthplace of the web. A picture of the women was uploaded to the web on 18 July, 1992, by web creator - and fan - Tim Berners-Lee. He wanted it to test out the version of the web he was working on at Cern. Press tornado The band was founded in 1990 by Michele de Gennaro who worked at Cern as a graphic designer. The Cernettes get their name from the initials of the giant particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider, used at Cern to investigate fundamental physics. The group has won fame in scientific circles by performing at Cern social gatherings and physics conferences. The women sing classic 60s pop songs, as well as their own compositions such as Microwave Love, Collider and My Sweetheart is a Nobel Prize. The gig on 21 July at the annual Cern music festival will be their first performance for five years - and is billed as their last. Jim Halley, manager of the band, said there had been a huge upsurge of interest in the band because of the anniversary of the image being uploaded to the web. The band was even featured on the US talkshow hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, said Mr Halley. "This photo was one of those that changed the web, from a platform for physics documentation, to a media for our lives," [the band] said. Les Horribles Cernettes.

Boing-E-Boing is a cool trick for the yo-yo. It is fairly simple, but still looks very amazing. First, go into a split bottom mount. To do this, throw a sleeper and go into a brain twister mount, but instead of bringing you throw hand under the yo-yo, swing the yo-yo over your index finger of your throw hand and it lands on the string. That is a split bottom mount. After the split bottom mount is in place, pass the yo-yo forward once by switching your arms. Now the yo-yo is in the middle of two strings. Move your index finger at the top up and down. Watch as the yo-yo bounces between the two strings because it has nowhere else to go!
