    Definitely, that "Money maker" double-strap selling for close to 500 quids is way, way, WAY overpriced... as I thought. Will make this instead :)

  • Portable Powered Laptop Case

    That's great! Is there an option to make it much leaner for a slim ultrabook? Also would be amazing with a solar panel for outdoor work. My only concern with this design is going to the airport with this... there is no way, simply no way this will pass a security screening without some serious - and understandable - scrutiny. It definitely looks like some kind DIY acid-lead battery bomb with a timer once you remove the laptop! Any way to make look more stealthy? I'll try to make a stealthy version, I got a perfect case for it, modified it already to make a hidden compartment and was wondering what to do with it since I'm not a criminal lol. Maybe with a whole bunch of 9 V batteries or some slimer ones it could work. But then you'd have to watch out for potential leakage :( Anyway great id…

  • Flying Lego Quadcopter

    Hi there, great project. Have you weighed in this drone? I am interested to build it to fly in Canada. It would need to be 250 grams or lighter in weight. I think it’s made out of lego since you can’t repair such small drones after crash usually. Do you think this would work?

    I highly doubt this is heavy enough to be classified as an unmanned aircraft. Where I live in Canada we have some of the strictest drone rules in the world (basically requires you to pass an aviation theory exam before you can fly...) yet drone 250 gr or lower are not classified as unmanned aircrafts. I doubt this to be above 250 gr in weight, but I may be wrong and I don’t know the American regulations. Would be a real shame not to see more drone shots of Yosemite or Yellow stone parks :(

  • Cool design, though I wonder how long the cardboard will hold up... anyway will probably make some and we'll see. :)

  • Thank you for your answer :) I remember when I yelled at a co-worker a few years ago. He was very skilled and never put gloves on to work with an angle-grinder; I was like "what are you doing?!" and he explained the same exact thing I said and I felt so dumb... I understand about burning your fingers tho. One of my ex instructors, a master jeweller, was able to cast a small ingot and open the casting box with his bare hands. He himself admitted that it wasn't a good idea, and his hands didn't really looked like those of an artist. He have leather on his palms... haha such memories. Crazy guy, but he could mix any precious metal together in one piece.

  • JasbatDrummer commented on randofo's instructable My First Synth

    I think I gonna make this for myself, cause it IS so solid. Did you made any module or mod to insure dangerous frequencies aren't going to reach the kids' ears? Well, honestly I didn't read everything at all, so I probably missed that. Just asking. Synth frequencies when playing like crazy can go beyond the human ear spectrum at times and damage your ears. I happened to the safest pros, my dad who've been working with synths for 40 years never realized that after a session with a new synth, he was receiving frequencies WAY as 20K hertz for hours and end, and he only realized it after he analyzed the frequencies... so. Be careful with that. It's analogue so we don't if some sort of short-circuit happens, what frequency could be generated. Then again, I think this IS the safest synth for ch…

You cannot have 0% risk of the signal not going nuts and triggering freqs we sometimes can't hear. Also a limit of the DBs but I guess it is built-in.

    *Way beyond 20K hertz

  • Yeah! I liked the idea. I'll try a giant resonator and smaller cords, and to attach a booth to the hula-hoop. Maybe even a resonator the size of the hula-hoop (yes, I got that, specialized material to capture sounds in the wild).

  • Could you use this microphone as a surface microphone, like to control the room? For instance, I put on a wall. I wanna cut the reflection of this wall. So I record, and invert the phase of the vibrations that the Cortado picks up. Would it be efficient? I know a surface mic is a kind of contact mic. I guess I'd have to try.FANTASTIC warm, vintage, raw roots sound from this mic!

  • This sounded great to my hears. I'm a promusician and producer, that this get a warm, vintage sound to it. Honestly, ityou didn't know it was made with a hula-hoops, clips and bungee cord, would yoube that severe about this microphone? Don't think so. Close your eyes andlisten to the vocals at the end again : TWO singers singing. ONE microphone.Made with this?! For a contact microphone's capsule, the result is ASTONISHING.Of course it's not a Rode NT1. The point of making this is NOT to makesomething similar to a Rode NT1 or a U-87, which cost several THOUSANDS ofdollars. It sounds GREAT for what it is.Gonna build one:)

  • To answer your question, I know people in the military who can literally repair and make about ANYTHING with tools, and a lot without what we call "proper tools". Soldiers are trained 24/7 to take insane care of their equipment; putting it in pieces and back up working in a sort amount of time; cleaning it like you were going to wear it at prom; repair stuff on the go, in a chaotic, dangerous environment. They do carry multitools, knives, survival kits, axes, etcFire-launchers I guess can solder things, and solderers have smaller torches on them on the field, I guess too.

  • Hi and thanks for this great guide!I'm a pro drummer and wanna use a Rockband unit found in the streets as a "desktop" MIDI controller for production and essentially, banging' away when my client's not looking xDSo here's the deal : My unit comes with a "single" jack in the back, that is I believe splitter inside into 4 cables, each of them connected to one of the pad. At the other end of this "Über-jack" is a USB. This is even cooler than MIDI port for me, cause that means it's USB-MIDI, and I wanna use it with my laptop!When I plug the unit in, it is effectively powered (I see a relight in the controller). What would I have to do to adapt your guide to USB-MIDI (one USB cable) instead or MIDI to USB or MIDI to MIDI?I'm new to Arduino but really excited…

    I don't think hardening is needed : this is not piercing nor cutting any material. Also, it's more of an emergency/"I only have that..." tool than anything else, so you shouldn't have to use it so much you could damage it.

  • Although your tutorial is fantastic, please le met correct you on this : you CAN take photos with shallow depth of field on a smartphone, with the integrated camera.I own an iPhone 4S and I do this regularly. In fact, many profesionnal reporters use naked phones these days (more discreet than DSLRs) and take amazing photos with it.You do need a special zoom lense of macro-lense for shallow depth of field effect. You need to control the depth of field. You do this on your iPhone by choosing the focal point. The software then calculate the depth of field - the lense is not moving, but it can be done. It is limited, of course, as your subject need to be really close to you, and the zoom is not really existant on a phone.BUT you CAN do it.Now onto following your awesome tutorial :)

  • Just a comment regarding the space blanket : there is two sides and two different use for such a survival blanket.The reflective side have to be in contact with your body when you're in cold temperatures. That way it will reflect your heat towards you. That's how it works.When you're in a desert for instance, you do the reverse so it reflects the sun away from you.

  • Great design! And you have a wonderful taste in cinema. I'm going to make this for my (future) recording studio.My dad used this concept in our bathroom. Basically he attached a plank of wood to the cellar with magnets, and run LED stripes on each side.
