bubble wall?

Hi everyone! I am not a tech .. I am just a girl who loves to create odd things and gets really excited about making cool freaky lights in my house. I would like to find an inexpensive way to build a bubble light wall.. like make it big and part of the wall itself. I have some concept of what I need to do already, but am perplexed at how to build the tank itself .. like an 1nch or so deep .. but if anyone has any good ideas for this I would really love to hear them. also... would it be better to use panels or one large tank .. or if there is anything premade that i could convert into this. Thanks =)

Fixing a wall-wart?

Hi, I have a wall-wart that is working but I'm having some problems with it. It coverts 220AC to 10VDC with 1,3A current. I've been using it mainly to power up 8cm PC fans. Recently I opened it up and saw that below the diodes,board has turned black and it seems fried, that can be from excessive heat generated by diodes, and part of the transformer that was facing this diodes is melted (as you can see in pictures). I think diodes are 1n4005. 1- my first questions is, why these diodes got this hot ? should I change them with diodes that can pass more current?  I have RL205 will that work? 2- I've read somewhere that after rectifier bridge, if capacitor's capacity is high, it will put pressure on diodes and transformer, is this true ? or we can use any high capacitor we can find ? 3- Is there a law by which we figure out how high our capacitor should be after rectifier bridge in wall-warts ? for example If I had a wall-wart with 1000mF capacitor, can I change it to 2200mF ? 4- I am going to use this wall-wart to power up a 7805 regulator, so that I can feed a lithium-ion battery charger module (4056). This module uses 1A. should I put a high value capacitor like 470mF or more, at regulator's input, or is it unnecessary cause of my wall-wart having a high capacitor ? 5- Are they any ways that I can improve this wall-wart ? like if I keep the transformer cool ,when it;s under load ...maybe add another capacitor ... ?

Unfortunately there is lot of pink color reflection in the room. entire room feels pink, even ceiling, door and closet are white. It seems that color was darker side of pink. In the past when the room had white color, two bulbs gave good light. Now even with 4 bulbs not enough light.  I saw many houses with different colors, but never felt such type of huge color reflection. Now this room is no more good for studying. Why it happend?

Wall of PC Case Fans?

Hello guys, sorry if this is the wrong section but, I was thinking of making a DIY fan out of PC case fans to keep myself cool in the summer. I've tried a number of fans in the past, but they don't seems to be very good. I usually put them right next to an open window to draw cold air in. I was thinking of making some kind of rig like in the video below, only without the bitcoin mining computer. I got the idea from this video and from when I was messing around with the fans in my own PC. I was chancing the speed of the fan for the PCI cards and noticed that it could get really cold if ramped up a bit. ) I was thinking of using 9 identical 120mm or 140mm fans, preferably ones that can be used with a fan controller. Here is a few of the things I need help with. How will I power the whole thing? What kind of cabled will I need? Could I use a fan controller to power all 9 fans? Can I even hook up 9 fans to a fan controller? Maybe I could use 2 fan controllers or something? What brand of fans should I use? How will I attach the fans together? Cable ties like in the video? Maybe I could make a makeshift wooden stand to hold them upright.

Running LED's with a wall outlet

I have a question, I am thinking of making a Pepakura Iron Man mask for my father for his desk at work.  I have big plans for this, but the biggest thing I want to do is had the Eyes light up.  What all would i need to do this?  I would think using LED's would be the ideal way to go.  I dont really want to use batteries to power it, as I would like it to run off of a wall plug, and perhaps even have a switch to power on and off. Any ideas?  I've looked all over, and I cant really find a deffinate way/means to power it through an outlet....most all just mention batteries.  I know it can be done though :) Any help is GREATLY appreciated!

Motion Sensor to Control both Bathroom Light and Fan?

My bathroom currently has two single pole switches mounted in two separate wall boxes side by side with a single double-wide switch cover.  I want to convert these to motion sensor switches with separate vacancy delays for the light and fan so that I can let the exhaust fan run for about 5 minutes after vacancy while the light is set for maybe 30 seconds. Are there commercial switches that will accommodate these two functions in a single switch, or will i need to use a separate switch for the light and one for the fan?  Are there single double-wide wall plate covers that will fit side by side switch placement? Thanks.

How to properly attach a mirror to a plasterboard wall?

Hello! I'm in a bit of a mess as I do things around the house much less often than I actually should so I thought home of the DIY will be the right place to ask for this. I've purchased a large mirror for my room and realized that I don't have any wall plugs that would be long enough to reach the load-bearing wall and I've never used wall plugs for the plasterboard wall in front of it. To be honest I have no idea which ones to buy. How much weight the plasterboard wall ones handle. And is it even a good idea to them or should I just get longer ones which will reach the load-bearing wall? Thank you for your time, Matt.
