  • How to Fix Fried Arduino Nano/Uno/Mega

    Thanks! I threw out a nano after frying the diode rectifier before I found this instructable. I retrieved the nano from the garbage and following your instructions replaced the diode and now all is well. Didn't have the original type of diode and it would have taken weeks to arrive, so I replaced it with a 1N4007 diode that I had on hand and it programmed perfectly connected to my mac mini. Will power from an external source rather from directly off the mac mac's usb from now on to protect my mac, but at least I can upload sketches to it again.

  • MPU6050 Setup and Calibration Guide

    Check baud rate on serial monitor. I had the same thing then matched baud rate to that specified on sketch. Instant success!

  • 3D Printed Animatronic Eye Mechanism on the Cheap

    Something I've wanted to make for quite awhile. Had a great deal of fun and even learned a few things, too! I did make some slight adjustments. First I tried the 50% reduction on the Thingiverse universal joint, but I couldn't get my printer to print the thin parts without instantly breaking. Instead, I used some small rubber tubing I had on hand and added some modifications to the base and eyeball to accommodate a 1/8" dowel (see picture). Made for a very life-like and fluid movement. I also did some slight modifications for the servo mounts so I could screw in the servos. I found that the lower lid connection was interfering with the blinking, so I eliminated that particular servo and got a very satisfactory blink.Took me awhile to figure out how to get the joystick button to work,…

Thanks so much for sharing this.
