X-Ray Polaroids

Here's a good use of old radioactive material. Use it to expose Polaroid film to create some ghostly images of old items.Why would anyone do this? The author puts it out there pretty clearly:For some time I've been fascinated with the idea of reproducing these types of images in my home lab without great cost and with relative safety. As a collector of radioactive minerals and other ephemera, I decided that I wanted to use naturally radioactive materials as the source for my 'penetrating rays' rather than an amateur electrical x-ray machine setup.Polaroid film is readily available and it develops itself. However, a workable technique needed to be developed. How to expose the film for hours or days without the need for absolute darkness? How would I develop the film reliably after an exposure was made?The answer came from Kevin Clark of the Yahoo group, "GeigerCounterEnthusiasts". It was here that Clark explained his simple, yet reliable, technique for creating inexpensive Polaradiographs.Items you'll need: 1. A Polaroid SX-70, Type 600, or Spectra camera 2. A package of unexposed Type 600 or Spectra Polaroid film 3. One metal cookie tin at least six inches in diameter 4. A few sheets/roll of aluminum foil 5. Radioactive materialThat radioactive material can include:- Old, unused lantern mantles- Salt substitute or certain rock salts (Potassium Chloride)- Vaseline glass (plates, cups, or marbles)- Fiestaware plates and dishes- Welding rods- Old camera lens or vintage prescription eyeglasses (look for yellowed or browned optical glass)- Uranium ores and minerals- Exempt, unlicensed radioactive calibration sources- Radium containing clocks, watch hands, compasses, dials, and gauges- Tritium gunsights and keychain fobsCheck out the site itself for the full story. It's a good read with plenty of information about the history of x-ray photography.via Neatorama

Updating 1980s X Terminals? Answered

Okay, so I've been trying to solve this problem for quite a while now, and I've simply run out of ideas. In my father's optical store, all of the POS computers are X Terminals. They are all connected to a main server in the back. The server is connected to a device which is kinda like an ethernet hub - on its a box with 16 RJ-45 jacks, and a cable coming out of it which connects to the server's parallel port. Each of the jacks are connected to a small adapter cable (filter? crossover cable?) and that cable has an ethernet cable coming from it into a patch bay on the wall. I'm almost completely sure that the cable is *not* carrying a tc/ip signal, because the back of the hub-box-thing explains that each of the wires in the cat-5e cable are assigned to carry specific parallel port signals. So, I'm pretty sure we have a parallel connection running over cat-5e. Also, I'm pretty sure the server is running red hat Linux, which is running an x-11 emulator. Anyway, from the patch bay, all the signals continue through Ethernet cable until they reach the terminal. There, the cable is plugged into an RJ-45 to parallel adapter, which then plugs into one of the two parallel ports on the back of the terminal. What I'm trying to do is to replace all of those huge, old and ugly X terminals with newer computers and monitors. I've tried connecting the parallel connector on the adapter to various computers and trying a bazillion programs, but I can't seem to emulate an x-terminal. So, any ideas?

X-Ray your finger with stickytape!

Scientists have discovered the cheapest source of potentially-useful X-rays.Peeling sticky tape emits X-rays strong enough to scan a human finger, a remarkable experiment has shown.US researchers used a motorised peeling machine to unwind a roll of Scotch tape at a rate of 3cm per second.By placing their apparatus in a vacuum, they measured X-rays strong enough to X-ray a human digit, according to a report in Nature journal.It is well known that unwinding sticky tape produces sparks of light that can be seen in the dark by the naked eye.This phenomenon, known as "triboluminescence", is produced by the friction generated when two surfaces rub against each other.The study, by Carlos Camara and Juan Escobar, of the University of California, Los Angeles, USA, provides evidence for the phenomenon, which was first observed more than 50 years ago.

They also learned to knit, solder, and do some chemistry; textbooks include the Cartoon Guides to Chemistry and Physics. Doesn't this sound like awesome fun? Check out the course description:Welcome to the Disruptive Home Economics class at Parsons New School for Design. To the initiated, the class is called Home X. The goal of this class is to expand our ability to make things at home, whether for entertainment, expression or survival. Home X will take us all through the center and to the fringe of what it means to make-it and do-it-yourself. We will start by making or modifying existing DIY and How-to projects and studying the way other makers solve problems and create documentation. Over the course of the semester, we will get hands-on experience researching, designing, documenting and sharing our own DIY projects. We will take a generalist's approach and gain experience with a wide range of mechanical, electrical, computational and chemical processes. We will combine novel tools and materials with common ones and build projects for ourselves as well as tools for others. Along the way, we will also look at the way cultural and historical contexts influence the technologies we make and use, as well as the implications of open source production by the masses. Students will be encouraged to release their work as openly and widely as possible and to experiment with traditional and contagious distribution of their projects.More info hereAs they say in Home-X: D.I.Y till you R.I.P.

X-Y stage for film scanner

I'm building a film scanner using a dlsr. Here's a picture of the rig so far: Basically there's a light source, negative stage, negative holder, camera support stage, camera and lens.  I put a negative in the negative holder and slide it using a guide such that I can take a bunch of pictures of the negative at 1:1.  For example, it takes 25 pictures to cover a 6x7cm negative.  The individual files are then combined into one file using stitching software.  The system works very well, but it's a bit tedious.  I'd like to automate the negative movement using a diy motorized xy stage.  Many of the designs I've seen are for much bigger units, such as for a cnc machine, or units that require speedy movement.  That's not the case here.  Each movement would be only 10-20mm. I'm fairly handy, and I can follow directions/recipes well, but I haven't worked with arduinos or stepper motors before.  Any advice or suggestions on a good way to accomplish my goal would be very welcome!

Logitech X 620 sub pinout?

Found a powered subwoofer ( Dumpster!!!) of a 6.1 computer sound system. Not the  6 smaller speakers. The front right speaker would have had the inputs and controls in it . A cable with a VGA connector had to be plugged into the amp in the back. No pinout info was found I have a similar 2.1 system (Logitech Z3), which is all I need for casual use (My real system is unusable due to neighborhood pressure...) The amp contains 2 TDA 7377 chips,and many more components than prescribed by the data sheet (some of it is the power supply)- ( Does more complicated mean better here?). 2 Options: 1) rip the TDA chips out and use one to make a 2.1 or a stereo amp with components according to the datasheet. The other one a stereo or quad for a different project. 2) find out the pinout and use the amp 'as is' (which would mean putting both all R and all L channels together (parallel?) to make a 2.1. A lot less work. (Since I am not going to use the 6.1 configuration, will the sophistication of the design still deliver?)? If anyone knows the pinout I would of course first try working with the existing circuit...

It seems everywhere I spend any time it's the most something season on record, or at least for 40-50 years. Here's a little list I compiled a couple years ago, from where I'd been: 2002 - summer - New Zealand - worst drought on record          - summer - Western Australia - worst drought on record          - spring - Malaysia - hottest on record          - winter - Ireland - wettest on record          - autumn - Ireland - mildest 2003 - summer - Australia - worst drought          - summer - United Kingdom - hottest summer, hottest day          - summer - New Zealand - highest UV index 2004 - summer - British Columbia - longest          - summer and autumn - British Columbia - worst fire season 2005 - winter and spring - Victoria, Australia- wettest          - summer - Australian east coast - hottest          - summer - Western Australia - coolest Since then it's been worst droughts, floods, cyclones, wettest summers, and now snow. If it hasn't been graphed, it should be.

Real-Life X-Wing Set to Fly

No, really.Andy Woerner and his crazy rocketeer friends have built a 21-foot long X-Wing model that can actually fly. Yes, this is a real X-Wing powered by four solid-fuel rocket engines complete with radio-controlled moving wings. It blasts off in California next week, and we talked with Andy about the project, and how they expect it will do. The X-Wing model is huge. At 21 feet long and with a wingspan of over 19 feet it is, in fact, big enough to fly a kid in. However, knowing that it will be powered by solid-fuel rockets, they wouldn't put a kid, dog, monkey or Gizmodo editor inside, even if it uses three full parachutes to land.After drawing the plans using CAD software, Andy's team and his friends at Polecat Aerospace (with the help of RMS Laser and Aerotech Consumer Aerospace) used laser cutting to make the pieces out of Baltic Birch wood. They also used solid aluminum for some parts, like the rods which are the pivot point for the wings. full story with more pics

How to connect a landline to Mac on OS X?

---The Problem---- I've searched high and low for something that will allow me to connect my normal landline (see links at bottom of post) to my MacBook Pro (2.16GHz core 2 duo, on OS X Snow Leopard).  The landline is my work landline, so I can't change it. I really just want to connect it to my Mac through its "To TEL" port, which according to the manual is for connecting phones in parallel. The minimum I want to be able to do is get audio from the landline to my computer's speakers and audio to it from my computer's speakers. My goal is to be able to work handsfree on my computer while I type. I'm not keen on a headset for the landline because I hate cables and get tangled up while I type. If I get my voice routed through to the phone through the Mac's microphone and sound to come out through my speakers from the caller's voice I'd be jumping for joy. I'd be rocketing for joy if through some way I managed to use an AppleScript I found (see links at bottom of post) to dial out of AddressBook to the landline. That would be tres cool, but that'd be me getting greedy. ----What I've been able to find out (I'm pretty clueless)------ PCs can do this with an RJ11 to USB adapter. There are rumors that the DLink DPH-50U works with OS X with a driver no one can seem to find. Apple stopped making their USB external modems, which didn't cater for voice anyway. I'm willing to buy stuff to make something if I need, although if it comes to writing drivers I'd need a lot of direction. ----The question----- Does anyone have any clever ideas on how to solve the problem? ----Links------ My landline manual: https://support.panasonic.co.nz/docstore/KXT7425_T7433_T7436_T7450%20book.pdf AppleScript to dial from AddressBook: http://forums.macosxhints.com/showpost.php?p=317719&postcount;=10 Most thankful in advance for any ideas!

I would like to share with you all an awesome project and some doubts and questions related to the same. This is a 24 x 24 LED Matrix project taken from here. All the data is taken from the same link. 24×24 LED dot matrix -->   This is pretty old circuit but I found it interesting to describe here. 24×24 LED display is formed by using 9 8×8 Dot LED matrix displays, that are connected to AT90S2313 MCU. MCU scans an indicator lines in series. Special PC program is written which allows drawing images on screen and transfer them via COM port to device. You can send images in series what gives an animation effect.   Circuit is was built using obsolete AT90S2313 MCU which can be replaced by Attiny2313 MCU with minor modifications of firmware. To make program work you event don’t need to connect device to computer COM port. You can store images in other master MCU EEPROM memory Each received byte from UART is immediately sent to 8 LEDs, second byte to next 8 LEDs and so on. Bytes has to be sent one by one without delay. USART is working at 115200 baud, 8bits, no parity. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE PROBLEMS >1>I really dont know if the circuit is good or not tell me if it is going to work. >2>I cant get 8x8 dot matrix displays so i am going to normal leds to a 24x24 one. >3>I have never worked with bus before (the bold red lines in the circuit) so i dont know how to connect it. >4>The schems are segmented i am finding it hard to figure out how to connect some of the segments. >5>Also i need to know how to hook it up to my pc. >6>I have never done programming so i need to know how to program the ic.
