    USB SNES Controller

    The ATMega8 is not an "imitation Arduino"; Arduino is a specific product that uses the ATMega series of chips (in other words, ATMega chips were around long before the Arduino was created).

    I'd say change the thickness (height) of the wheel dividers so that a quarter segment is the largest portion size you wish to drop. If you wish some segments to drop smaller sizes, install filler panels so the quarter segment only accepts a smaller portion size.

    How To Make Your Own Sugru Substitute

    Corn flour (as found in the US) is NOT the same as corn starch, and has very different properties. Corn flour is basically whole corn, finely ground (vs cornmeal, which is coarsely ground). Corn starch is derived only from the endosperm of a corn kernel, and has different properties -- primarily due to the higher concentration of starches (as the name suggests). The flour contains the gluten as well as the starch, whereas corn starch has been refined and separated from the other components of the corn.That all said, since corn flour does contain starch, it may still get the job done in a pinch... but results may vary :)

    I'd suggest comparing silicone compounds and finding one that brands itself as "UV resistant" or "won't crack or fade in sunlight" etc.
