Talk at Google

Thanks to an invite from Cat Allman, who I met on a train back to the airport after OSCON, Tetranitrate, T3h_Muffinator, and I headed down to Google yesterday to talk about Instructables. The first bit didn't make the video; it starts at slide 22 of 34, so I've attached the .pdf of my slides below. I ran through the slides as an intro, then we answered questions and showed off some projects and videos from the site. There were lots of things I wanted to talk about that either didn't fit or were forgotten- particularly about the issue of intellectual property- but I guess that's a great excuse for another visit!

Talking Clock

Hi Everybody, I'm new to the forum of inscrutables, but I've been bored at work recently and been thinking of things to brighten the place up. I've come up with an idea, but have very limited technical skills, if somebody could just point me in the right direction so that I could start this project I would be really appreciative and would post up pictures and videos of the final product. Idea: Essentially, I work at a pool where the lifeguards rotate every 15 mins, which they forget to do OFTEN! Me and a few others have decided to make a clock to replace our current one that would, every 15 mins make a noise, or say "rotate" to remind them to rotate on time. It would also be fun if we could have several different voices saying "rotate" of different employees. I'm pretty sure this can be done because I've seen clocks that make bird chirping noises, But I can't figure out how they work. Any help would be awesome, I really want to learn new things, which I think is everybody's reason for being on instructables anyway. Thanks, George

Talking ads on instructables

Is anybody else getting talking ads that cannot be turned off on their instructables articles. To me, this is a complete no-no. I appreciate that the instructables team have to make money, but there is already enough ads without this. It is invasive of other people who happen to be around you and invasive of you too.

Talk me into Linux

I've been considering the switch to linux. I have currently loaded SimplyMEPIS onto an old laptop to give it a try, I was impressed. I think I like the Ubuntu Distro a little better but I'm teetering on the edge of a complete switch. I need a push over the edge. My issues at the moment is that the old crapy laptop is just kinda, what I call, my beater book. its the laptop I don't worry about to much and use for word proccesing on the run and simple Internet tasks. SimplyMEPIS works excellent for these purposes. My concern is compatibility with my everyday computer needs....... and my not so ordinary endevors. I would consider myself an Expert when it comes to Windows XP......... a step above Expert if there is such a thing...... I know it inside and out and I can manipulate it like a dirty 5 dollar crack whore. I realize there will be a learning curve but will it be compatible with everything I use in windows? ........ I do a lot of media editing and music recording....... is this a possibility in linux? (I realize Mac pro tools is my overall best option) somebody please convince me to switch beyond a shadow of a doubt. or talk me down from the ledge.

Talk like Shakepeare day!

Thursday has been declared Talk like Shakespeare day! We don't know exactly when he was born, but we're calling April 23 close enough! Readeth the proclaimationeth. Refuse to speak in any tongues save ye olde english Thursday, and force your friends to do the same! Here are 10 quick tips on how to talk like Billy from http://talklikeshakespeare.org/:1 Instead of you, say thou. Instead of y'all, say thee. (This one will be hard for me! :D )2 Rhymed couplets are all the rage.3 Men are Sirrah, ladies are Mistress, and your friends are all called Cousin.4 Instead of cursing, try calling your tormenters jackanapes or canker-blossoms or poisonous bunch-back'd toads.5 Don't waste time saying "it," just use the letter "t" ('tis, t'will, I'll do't).6 Verse for lovers, prose for ruffians, songs for clowns.7 When in doubt, add the letters "eth" to the end of verbs (he runneth, he trippeth, he falleth).8 To add weight to your opinions, try starting them with methinks, mayhaps, in sooth or wherefore.9 When wooing ladies: try comparing her to a summer's day. If that fails, say "Get thee to a nunnery!"10 When wooing lads: try dressing up like a man. If that fails, throw him in the Tower, banish his friends and claim the throne.

Wireless button to talk to computer

Hello, I'm running some sessions with a multi-abled theatre group of kids and we want to create a piece of interactive dance. Each kids will carry a couple of buttons and when they press them they send a signal wirelessly to a computer nearby which is running the dance program connected to a projector so the kids can see what they are doing. So pressing their button could change the colour of the kids projection from red to blue.  I think I need to use a microcontroller inside a button but am not sure which one - cheap and small - bluetooth or wifi? How do I get the button press program onto the microcontroller? Finally how does the computer hear the signal? The dance program is written in Processing.  Is there a project that is similar? I've searched for lots of things but can't find exactly what I need. Thanks The kids will enjoy this Tim

Talking about my Summer

I have to admit that I was skeptical before starting my Residency at Instructables. I never felt comfortable calling myself a "Maker" and here I was, walking into the belly of the beast at Pier 9. I felt like the term "Maker" was starting to read as cold, technical, robotic and...frankly...stuff really geared towards young boys. I felt as though I was coming into the program as a spy, an outsider looking to infiltrate and be critical of the hype around 3D printing. My project was really my attempt to talk openly about how I felt about these things in a way that people who design and use these machines might take notice. I was expecting to walk into an office full of dudes that wanted to make crazy things just because they could but I was created by quite another experience. The other AiRs were all interesting, questioning, infiltrating. The entire company was full of creative, open-minded, artsty folk and I can't tell you how good it felt to be in the electronics lab one day with all these different amazing and creative women coming in and out. I end my residency (the full-time part anyway) with a different attitude and the realization that people are pretty open-minded, excited and down-right nice! I never imagined people would go to the lengths they did just to help see the project along and it felt great to help and encourage others to see their ideas though. I think I leave the summer with a few new friends. On my presentation day, I felt like I wanted people to sign my year-book - it's that kind of place.   My favorite thing about the residency was also made the residency difficult. The space and people are so interesting and engaging that conversations start all the time. It's so great, but also makes it really hard to get work done! There is so much going on that its hard to stay on top of what people are working on - especially with the residents that aren't around everyday. It would be interesting to find ways to facilitate feedback and collaboration in different ways. We do an exercise in a class I help with at Berkeley where people put their projects on the wall and the other students add post-its with feedback. Maybe if we had a wall like that in the Air-ea it could be a way to keep tabs of all the work and also give short snippets of feedback without interrupting someone's flow. It wouldn't be a way to replace other ways of sharing what we're working on, but a sounding board for just quick, "have you seen X" kind of ideas.  I can't say thank you enough. I had a great, productive summer and I'm excited to be sticking around for a bit longer and seeing the new AiRs that come in and out. I would (and have) recommend the program to anyone - it was a really wonderful experience!

Instructables Internship - Day 7 (Day @ Google!)

Sorry to keep you guys waiting, I've just been so busy having fun, etc ;)So, without any further adieu, Tuesday through Thursday! (in four separate posts, so that I don't overwhelm you)Tuesday: Google Day!So, yes, it's true. I got to go to Google to talk a bit about Instructables. Yes, it's true, I'm a terrible speaker. And yes, it's true, Google is awesome!I had so much fun at Google, I'm so glad that we (Billy and I) were able to go. We got to see Stan, the t-rex standing outside in the courtyard. We got free foodstuffs and shwag. We saw SpaceShipOne (I think it was a model, though), and had a great time. It's really cool inside Google; everyone's desk has something strange on it, some people are even in "tents." it's just wacky to the max. Unfortunately, my camera died after a few minutes in Google, so I wasn't able to take too many pictures for you guys v_v sorry.There's actually a video of about 1/2 of the talk up on Google Video, and it's already on the Instructables Blog hereAfter Google, we went back to Squid Labs, where Jason and I worked on and pretty much finished up Project X. All we need now is some fine-detail work and it'l be done!So, it turns out that Tuesday was the annual Squid Labs' Intern Barbecue Day! At 6, the BBQ started, but Jason, Noah, Billy, and I were all out in the back, "testing out" Project X. After a few attempts, and an attempt to modify Proj. X, we decided that our brains needed some food to operate in a more functional manner. The BBQ was nice, there was quite a bit of food, drinks, and socializing. TimAnderson and others were flying kites up on the roof-patio (where the BBQ was held), in a mostly-successful manner. We watched the sun begin to fall, and as Squid Labs has the best view of San Francisco, it was spectacular. Unfortunately, my camera was inoperable... due to lack of battery power, and I didn't get any shots of the sundown. v_vAnywhoo, We all got Squid Lab 2007 Intern T-shirts, which were pretty damn awesome. There's a pic of them at the end of the post.After, Jason, Noah, Mike, Mitch, and both of their girlfriends (Erica and Jenna) came down off the roof-deck to help perfect Proj. X. We did quite a bit of work on it, but after several failed attempts, we knew what we had to do. Unfortunately, it was getting really late and we had to stop working on it for the night. Work will continue on Wednesday!Then, Billy and Star (Starsterisk) were going to watch The Boondock Saints on the projector in the conference room, so I joined them for a bit. We (Eric, Christy and I) got home around 10:30... pretty DARN late....Cheers,-Muffinator

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)

Using Arduino For Communication Device?

Hi there, I'm currently working on a University project for my Final Year and currently have some proposed ideas for a social device which can be worn or attached to clothing. My plan is to create a device which sends messages or other information using a sender/receiver which then stores the information, ready to be read later either through USB or simply viewing it on the device itself. It may even work in a similar way to another, similar project I have found on Instructables (see below). The user would simply wear this item of clothing in a specific environment (such as a nightclub - speaking hyperthetically) which would allow communication between people just by walking past another person with the same device. Think of this as a close-proximity, P2P-type device for communication. https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Lilypad-Interactive-Passion-Sensing-Scarf/ I have talked the project over with my peers and found that there are two main options to creating such a device, which are: - Use several Arduinos (one for each user) which send and receive information via RFID Readers/Writers (again, a set of each for each user) attached to the board. One problem with this is that it will be incredibly bulky and unlikely to survive being washed or put through the punishment that clothing often takes on a daily basis. - Use a central Arduino board which receives information from Arduino XBees which receive information from the central Arduino and are sent information back from it. One problem with this is when several devices come into contact with each other, the central Arduino will be unable to tell which message has come from and should go to another device. However, one plus point with this is that I've heard XBees (Series 2 only) will be able to send and receive information on their own and are incredibly small. If you have any ideas on how this device could be produced or if you have any comments on the above, please let me know. I would greatly appreciate any feedback you may have. Cheers, KugarWeb.
