How to Attach Small Plastic Trinkets to a Shirt/Pants? Answered

I want this to be a rather permanent solution, and the "Trinkets" come in many different forms, but are mostly plastic, i have one or two wooden ones, and a couple paper/cardboard ones. And i really don't care about washing, as i'll probably only wear it once.

Arduino/Trinket USB scroll wheel?

I've seen several tutorials on making an Arduino or Adafruit Trinket based volume control wheel, but I can't seem to find anything about making a scroll wheel.  Does anyone have any suggestions or know of any tutorials on how to make a USB scroll wheel with an Arduino or Trinket? Thanks ~Josh

key-style "blooming" trinket box?

Hey guys!   I want to make an oval-shaped box that slowly "blooms" when I wind it up with a key. I have absolutely no idea where to start. I've scoured google over and over again for such an object, but to no avail. :(  Could anyone point me in the right direction? I'm desperate.  Thanks! ~J

Control RFM69HCW with Adafruit's Pro Trinket 5v?

Hello, I'm having an issue controlling the RFM69HCW board (https://www.adafruit.com/product/3070) with the Pro Trinket  5V (https://www.adafruit.com/product/2000). The issue is when I go to compile an example code, the SPI class gives errors such as:  ...\Arduino15\packages\arduino\hardware\avr\1.6.12\libraries\SPI\src/SPI.h:250:27: error: 'SPIF' was not declared in this scope        while (!(SPSR & _BV(SPIF))) ;                            ^ I cannot find any help online after searching for awhile. If anyone could give me some insight on possibly how to get past using the SPI library or anything like that, that would be great! Thanks!

ReBar!

I happened to find a 20' length of 1/2" ReBar in the woods behind my house (I have magical woods, i also found a 3' length of I-beam I use as an anvil). What kind of carbon content does it have (I imagine not terribly high) and would it be at all useful for making blades, or reserved for making tongs and trinkets (later down the road I'm going to make a caduceus) and the like.

Using a PIR to turn on a sound module

Hi All, I have used PIR sensors before but i usually hack one from a cupboard light you can buy.  What I want to do is use a really small (and cheap) board like the trinket (adafruit) and hook it up to the PIR in order to turn on a sound module.   Does anyone know what board would be best to do this?  All the board will have to do is activate the PIR sensor.  maybe I don't need an actual whole board to get this done?  any clues would be much appreciated.

A cheap, easy, and small device to play one song?

For my friend's late birthday present (or rather unbirthday present) I want to make her a bouquet of Alice in Wonderland-inspired flowers in a little vase, so it would be super cool if I could find a way to make something or buy something relatively small that will play "All in a Golden Afternoon" from the Disney film. Does anyone at all know how I could pull that off? It just needs to be at the level of one of those Hallmark store trinkets, honestly.

My instructable won't publish.

I published a new instructable 2.5 hours ago and it still is not visible when I search recent. This is the instructable I am trying to publish:  https://www.instructables.com/id/Save-27K-of-flash-memory-on-an-Adafruit-Trinket/ Eleven instructables have been published and show up in a recent search since I published it. The same thing happened to me awile back.  On Dec 5 I published an instructable and it didn't show up for a long time, an when it did it showed it was published on Dec 3 and showed up a few pages down in the recent search What is happening?

Newby needs some help with arduino code for kids party

OK, I'm kinda new at the programming part for my projects. I was wondering if anyone can help me with (what I assume will be a simple code for a veteran) a code for arduino and maybe with a little explanation of the code. Project is simple. I have a toy laser gun shooting at a target with a photocell attached and connected to a relay. What I would like is that every time the relay switches, a counter adds the shot so I can keep score. It's for my son's 9th birthday party and I've already built the targeting range (with  Lego Movie theme) and even some servos to knock back guys down.  I just need a way to keep score.  I have some Arduino Uno's, some nanos, some trinkets, some LCDs (2X16 and 4X8) and 4X 7segment displays so I have some options for parts,but at the moment I do not have a lot of time to go through a self-learning curve to get the coding to work.  Can anyone please help?  It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. .

The Sting Behind the Bling - what is the true cost of a little style?

The mining of jewels is often inhumane, illegal and highly toxic. So think before you sparkle.Whether future heirloom or fun trinket, jewellery is one of life's luxurious pleasures. Even if you aren't decked out in multiple carats, a bit of bling can make you feel a million dollars. But the path your jewellery takes to reach your earlobe, neck, wrist or finger can be harrowing.Worldwide, the people - including about a million children - employed on minimal wages to mine and process supposedly legitimate diamonds, gemstones and precious metals often endure some of the worst working conditions imaginable. Toiling in Asian and African countries with little or no union support means health and safety precautions are slender at best. There's a serious risk of work-related death, injury or chronic illness as workers scratch out a living in remote mines extracting precious and semi-precious stones.This is just one article from the BBC's online magazine Thread, which I have not read before, mainly because "fashion" is not something I generally think about.Thread is the online fashion magazine dedicated to bringing you the latest in eco-fabulous style.Ethical fashion is fashion that has been made, worn and passed on in a way that looks after people, animals and the environment. The clothes we feature in Thread support this approach, making us essential viewing for fashion-conscious people who care about where their clothes come from.

Hello again folks.

I haven't been too active on Instructables for the last year or so as I have been busy trying to put my life back together. A little over a year ago my partner Joan announced out of the blue that "we had run our course", an accumulation of health issues for both of us, family problems & various setbacks had taken its toll on her and she felt it was time for her to concentrate on raising her granddaughter alone. Needless to say this was a hammer blow losing two people I had built my life around tore me apart, it also meant I had to find somewhere to live, I tried to find somewhere I could have even a small workshop but being on a very limited budget it was impossible so instead I rented a small studio flat and put all my tools into storage. My son & I have now rented a garage to use both as storage and a workshop, we were very lucky to get one quite literally yards from my home, it lacks power and lighting so it is still a little limited but hopefully once it is set up I'll be able to start doing a few larger projects once again. In the meantime I have returned to doing the kind of table top projects I made thirty odd years ago when I last lived in a small flat mostly match craft tins & trinket boxes along with a couple of guitar tool & plectrum boxes, not exactly the beds & tables I was building a couple of years ago but it has kept me busy. I have also resurrected a couple of acoustic guitars, restored a nice Fender Squeir Strat and rebuilt my ex's old electric bike, owing to the vertigo problem I have had for the last couple of years I can't ride a motorcycle at present so this has at least given me some independent transport & its far cheaper than using taxis & buses to get around, I'm now on the lookout for materials to salvage and ideas for new projects so hopefully I'll be publishing a few 'ibles quite soon. I hope you don't mind my sharing my recent history with you but now I'm finally feeling more able to move on with my life & get on with making again I felt the need to reintroduce myself in some way. Here are a few pictures of what I've been making on a coffee table & lap tray along with my Fender & the bike which was a rather unattractive mess a few weeks ago & now has quite a smart vintage look to it.

Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day - Dec. 8

This sounds like loads of fun: Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day!Scheduled for December 8, 2007. Just spend the entire day in costume and character, but don't actually explain what you're doing- context, costuming, and behavior are key! Never admit you're a time traveler, and make really, really bad attempts at keeping a low profile.Three options:1) Utopian/cliche future- "If the Future did a documentary of the last fifty years, this is how badly the reenactors would dress." Think Star Trek: TNG or the Time Travelers from Hob. Ever see how the society in Futurama sees the 20th century? Run with it. Your job is to dress with moderately anachronistic clothing and speak in slang from varying decades. Here are some good starters:- Greet people by referring to things that don't yet exist or haven't existed for a long time. Example: "Have you penetrated the atmosphere lately?" "What spectrum will today's broadcast be in?" and "Your king must be a kindly soul!"- Show extreme ignorance in operating regular technology. Pay phones should be a complete mystery (try placing the receiver in odd places). Chuckle knowingly at cell phones. 2) Dystopian Future:- This one offers a little more flexibility. It can be any kind of future from Terminator to Freejack. The important thing to remember is dress like a crazy person with armor. Black spray painted football pads, high tech visors, torn up trenchcoats and maybe even some dirt here or there. Remember, dystopian future travelers are very startled that they've gone back in time. Some starters:- If you go the "prisoner who's escaped the future" try shaving your head and putting a barcode on the back of your neck. Then stagger around and stare at the sky, as if you've never seen it before.- Walk up to random people and say "WHAT YEAR IS THIS?" and when they tell you, get quiet and then say "Then there's still time!" and run off.- Stand in front of a statue (any statue, really), fall to your knees, and yell "NOOOOOOOOO"- Stare at newspaper headlines and look astonished.- Take some trinket with you (it can be anything really), hand it to some stranger, along with a phone number and say "In thirty years dial this number. You'll know what to do after that." Then slip away. 3) The Past:- This one is more for beginners. Basically dress in period clothing (preferably Victorian era) and stagger around amazed at everything. Since the culture's set in place already, you have more of a template to work off of. Some pointers:- Airplanes are terrifying. Also, carry on conversations with televisions for a while.- Discover and become obsessed with one trivial aspect of technology, like automatic grocery doors. Stay there for hours playing with it.- Be generally terrified of people who are dressed immodestly compared to your era. Tattoos and shorts on women are especially scary.
