wireless

Are all wireless products such as cell phones or ummm.... home phones and everything else that doesn't use IR, use pulsed magnetic wave, or supersonic sound? I'm making a wireless power device that pulses magnetic fields, is this dangerous to my health? I don't want to be a mutant or be sterile or anything.

wireless xbox?

Hi, I have a desktop PC upstairs that is wireless capable but is hooked up to a wired modem. My Xbox 360 is downstairs next to the tv, I have a new wireless netgear router that I was wondering if I could just hook that up to my xbox downstairs and keep the pc wired upstairs, as I know that most my friends have their 360's plugged straight into the wireless router. Can I have both wired upstairs and wireless plugged in the back of XBOX? If so how

Wireless Power

----- Click Here for Full Story -----We may be able to say goodbye to power cords in five years, as Intel has developed a system called WREL (wireless resonant energy link) that could possibly run electronics without having to find a wall socket."Wouldn't it be fantastic if we didn't think about where the power was coming from and the power was everywhere?"said by Intel boss Justin Rattner in an interview with BBC. Rattner explained that through Intel's idea of "magnetic induction", the power source can be tuned through a resonator, enabling gadgets to receive power wirelessly. The report further explains:"Power is put into magnetic fields at a transmitting resonator - basically an antenna. The receiving resonator is tuned to efficiently absorb energy from the magnetic field, whereas nearby objects do not."Of course, there would be issues at hand if Intel's technology breaks through the mainstream. How are companies such as Monster Cable going to fair if this new possibility rises? Well, we'll just have to see until then.Just how long till someone makes this cheap?

Wireless Interface? Answered

Hello, Instructables.      I know it seems like I ask too many questions and post too little ibles, But trust me. I'm working on one right now. And thats why I am here. I am working on a wireless snes controller for PC, and am having problems finding a wireless interface for it. I know theres the XBee, which, being on a limited budget, is off the table. theres Bluetooth, which i have VERY little expirience in, but considering that just makes it sound like it would be fun, and, last but not least, there is InfaRed, which, having recently recieved a IR LED assortment from Electronic Goldmine, might be an option. i will look more into BT, since i do have a bluetooth enable pc anyway.

Wireless Igniter?

I just recently made a pushbutton igniter system for lighting fireworks. ( a 9v battery goes through a momentary switch then to alligator clips which connect to the two wires coming off a Christmas light with the tip broken off. The end of the fuse goes in there and when the switch is pushed, the fuse lights) It works consistently without fault and I was wondering how I could make this remotly ignited. I understand that there is a way to just "replace" the momentary switch with some sort of receiver but I don't know where to go from there. If someone has knowledge of how you can do this or can redirect me to a sight with the parts I would need to accomplish this it would be greatly appreciated. thanks for the help   -flamethrower

Wireless Power?

OK so recently I have noticed that almost any sort of power can be converted into a different type, sorta. Anyways, it takes power to create radio waves or any wireless wave. Would it be possible to just send out plain radio waves and get something to pick them up and convert them into usable power? Now I know the farther you were from the source, the weaker the power would get, so you might have too send out a fair voltage signal to get some good range. Also, would it interrupt any electronics in range or anything like that? I was just thinking about this and wondering if it is even possible to get actual wireless power around your house or something without using batteries or interrupting anything in your house. Thanks.

Wireless Electricity!

I'm playing around with the idea of wireless power. It should be easily do-able over a short distance- my plan is to be able to charge something like my cellphone through induction, by placing it on a powered surface.. But- I don't know a whole lot about induction, so I was hoping someone could help me out a bit. Here is my setup: I'm using coils from old 5 1/2" floppy drives. I used them once before in a BEAM bot pendulum.. I set one coil on top of another. So far, by pulsing 9v DC through the coil, It sparks a little (because its shorting I assume) and the multimeter in the adjacent coil gives me a small spike of voltage, but quickly returns to zero. Zapping repeatedly gives me at best 2.5v, which is totally acceptable, if only it was sustainable. I've tried using AC 9v.. but I didn't seem to work either. I also tried some different on/off cycles with a BS2.. no luck. Any info would be quite appreciated..

Wireless water alarm

Hi all. Hoping I can get some suggestions. I have a water alarm in my basement, when it's sensor gets wet, it beeps. This does me no good since I can't hear it. What I'd like to do, it hack it so that instead of beeping, it lights a led I can hide somewhere in the house. Maybe in one of the wifes stupid knick knacks in the living room. If I just needed to wire the led to the beeper, I could figure that out. But I want it wireless. Any suggestions? Mechanically, I'm good. I know how to assemble, disassemble, solder, etc, but I don't know much about the electronics involved. I'm thinking I can use an inexpensive wireless doorbell as my transmitter and receiver. So, I guess what I need to do, is figure out how to incorporate the doorbell button into the alarm so when the alarm triggers, it activates the doorbell. Then, install an led in place of the chime and hide the whole shebang in something. (If it could also send me a text, that would rule, but it's way outside of my current skill level.) Will it work? How do I do it?

Wireless internet receiver? Answered

Is there any device that you can plug into your router in one room, and then connects wirelessly to a receiver in another room, and then that connects to a device such as a laptop? What I am looking to do is take the ethernet jack that is in my moms office and hook the transmitter up to it. Then take then take the wireless receiver and put it in my room to hook it up to my Apple Time Capsule. From the Time Capsule I would send the wireless signal to my laptop sitting right next to it. If you are thinking I could just hook my Time capsule up to the modem in my moms office, thats the way we have it set up right now, which gives me a very weak internet signal, if any, so if there is any device that will do this it has to send out a stronger signal than the Time Capsule. If you don't understand what I was saying you can look ant the diagram below. Is this possible?

Wireless Turn Signals

I have toyed around with the idea of making a jacket that has the turn signals and/or brake lights on the back. However, there is a twist, I would like to see a controller box to wirelessly send the signal from a scooter to the jacket. When the turn signals and brakes are used on the scooter it sends a wireless signal to the controller in the jacket which relays that to lights on the back of the jacket. I've seen some jackets with lights wired on to them controlled with an arduino.

Rechargable Wireless Mouse

I had this idea a while back and have yet to see one made. Unfortunately I don't have the means to try it myself. What I thought was a wireless mouse which would be recharged with its own dongle. When the dongle is plugged into the computer the batteries inside would be charged up then when it is put into the mouse for storage those batteries would charge up the mouse. I don't really know a whole lot about electronics - despite perusing instructables now and then ;) - so I don't know if this is even possible. But I don't see why it couldn't be done, or why it hasn't been done yet {unless I just haven't found it}. Peace to you and yours, Matthew "Dra'Gon" Stohler

Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds

I REALLY want Wireless headphones, but the caveat is that I want them to be earbuds.  I've seen people do all sorts of things to the big bulky ones, but I need these for stealth; I wanna listen to music in school! haha Don't try and tell me I ought to be studying either! =P The original plan was to use an RF transmitter and a RF receiver for each earbud, but RF modulation is static-ey and is subject to a LOT of interference. So the alternative is Bluetooth or other means of digital modulation.  I can't find a way to make your own "bluetooth" per se, leaving the only option to cannibalize another bluetooth device. Below is a quick sketch of what I had in mind.  I know there's more to it like resistors and whatnot, but I'll let you folks figure that stuff out. XD The idea is that the headphone hook around your ear and the receiver will hang off the back of your ear.  If you have any questions, just ask! =D Thanks for your help!!

Wireless Power Transmission

Nikola Tesla's grandest vision was the transmission of large amounts of power without wires. His work in this area was abandoned by his contemporaries, and there is still much debate over if it could or could not work. I would like to hear your opinions on this. Do you think it is possible? Would it require only one transmitter, or several, spread across the globe? Would it be safe? Would it be worthwhile? Could Tesla's original spark gap circuit been sufficient to drive it? Or would it be better to use vacuum tubes or solid state setups? Would the operating frequency be very high or very low? Pictured below is how I think Tesla may have done it, based on the information I've seen. It's a bit over-simplified, but to the best of my knowledge, it covers most of what is needed. Please note that, although the transmitter terminals would be at a much higher elevation than pictured, the receiving terminals could stay at a relatively low elevation. This link is to a YouTube video of someone using a small Solid-State Tesla Coil for wireless power transmission: www.youtube.com/watch Edit: I had orriginally imagined that the system would work by capacitive coupling between the Ionosphere and the coils. Afterwards I realized that electrostatic capacitive coupling will decouple after seperation between two plates is greater than 1/2 the wavelength (or, at least in theory), so I personally abandoned the idea. The only problem is that I can't imagine how power would be sent to airplanes. Also, this is a very good read on the subject, from a very interesting site: www.teslaradio.com/pages/wireless_102.htm
