anti-static

When working with electronics how often do you ground yourself? In many tutorials dealing with IC's they don't ground them selves. In a lot of programming tutorials they don't mention grounding when handling the chip. Stuff like arduino, minipov, daisy, and many others where the end project is open, are those sensitive to discharge? I'm juust asking because the esd wriststraps are annoying to wear because the wire get's in the way.

Anti-fog Mirror System

First of all, thanks to this comunity and all the DIY it has. Its a great group and has many interesting ideas. This is my first post, after one week reading all the projects, so hello to everyone. I want to make an anti-fog system for my bathroom mirror, because every time I bath it creates fog and makes difucult to shave after. I know about anti-fog sprays and DIY detergent solutions but there is also an electrical solution. The one I have in mind is a wire attach to the back of the mirror and conected to the electricity, so it generates the hot enough to avoid the fog. I saw one that also covered the zigzag wire behind with aluminium foil to (I thinkk) spread the heat more uniformly. What for sure I don't know, is about anything I should put to transform the electricity and resistance or whatever, because I thinks I can just conect the wires alone behind it. Can anyone help me with this? Two more things, in my country (Argentina) we use 220 voltage current instead of 110 like USA. Second, excuse my english and mistakes as it is not my native language. Thanks in advance to all the comunity !!!!

Chest Wrapping- Bra Alternative

I've heard of Japanese chest wrapping called Sarashi but I know there are other techniques for wrapping. This is an alternative to conventional bras using a long, thin strip of fabric that is wrapped around the bust in a particular pattern in a way that supports the bust but is also breathable and comfortable. I know this exists but I can't find anyone who knows anything about it! I know so many women who are frustrated with their bras. If you could help you would be doing so many women a favor.

Anti Gravity

SCIENTISTS in Finland are about to reveal details of the world's first anti-gravity device. Measuring about 12in across, the device is said to reduce significantly the weight of anything suspended over it.The claim - which has been rigorously examined by scientists, and is due to appear in a physics journal next month - could spark a technological revolution. By combating gravity, the most ubiquitous force in the universe, everything from transport to power generation could be transformed.The Sunday Telegraph has learned that Nasa, the American space agency, is taking the claims seriously, and is funding research into how the anti-gravity effect could be turned into a means of flight.The researchers at the Tampere University of Technology in Finland, who discovered the effect, say it could form the heart of a new power source, in which it is used to drive fluids past electricity-generating turbines.Other uses seem limited only by the imagination:Lifts in buildings could be replaced by devices built into the ground. People wanting to go up would simply activate the anti-gravity device - making themselves weightless - and with a gentle push ascend to the floor they want.Space-travel would become routine, as all the expense and danger of rocket technology is geared towards combatting the Earth's gravitation pull.By using the devices to raise fluids against gravity, and then conventional gravity to pull them back to earth against electricity-generating turbines, the devices could also revolutionise power generation.According to Dr Eugene Podkletnov, who led the research, the discovery was accidental. It emerged during routine work on so-called "superconductivity", the ability of some materials to lose their electrical resistance at very low temperatures. The team was carrying out tests on a rapidly spinning disc of superconducting ceramic suspended in the magnetic field of three electric coils, all enclosed in a low-temperature vessel called a cryostat."One of my friends came in and he was smoking his pipe," Dr Podkletnov said. "He put some smoke over the cryostat and we saw that the smoke was going to the ceiling all the time. It was amazing - we couldn't explain it."Tests showed a small drop in the weight of objects placed over the device, as if it were shielding the object from the effects of gravity - an effect deemed impossible by most scientists."We thought it might be a mistake," Dr Podkletnov said, "but we have taken every precaution". Yet the bizarre effects persisted. The team found that even the air pressure vertically above the device dropped slightly, with the effect detectable directly above the device on every floor of the laboratory.In recent years, many so-called "anti-gravity" devices have been put forward by both amateur and professional scientists, and all have been scorned by the establishment. What makes this latest claim different is that it has survived intense scrutiny by sceptical, independent experts, and has been accepted for publication by the Journal of Physics-D: Applied Physics, published by Britain's Institute of Physics.Even so, most scientists will not feel comfortable with the idea of anti-gravity until other teams repeat the experiments. Some scientists suspect the anti-gravity effect is a long-sought side-effect of Einstein's general theory of relativity, by which spinning objects can distort gravity. Until now it was thought the effect would be far too small to measure in the laboratory.However, Dr Ning Li, a senior research scientist at the University of Alabama, said that the atoms inside superconductors may magnify the effect enormously. Her research is funded by Nasa's Marshall Space Flight Centre at Huntsville, Alabama, and Whitt Brantley, the chief of Advanced Concepts Office there, said: "We're taking a look at it, because if we don't, we'll never know."The Finnish team is already expanding its programme, to see if it can amplify the anti-gravity effect. In its latest experiments, the team has measured a two per cent drop in the weight of objects suspended over the device - and double that if one device is suspended over another. If the team can increase the effect substantially, the commercial implications are enormous. Okay. lets throw down our ideas and see if we can figure something out... or not

Large-caliber Sundial

I was wandering the web, looking for information for a future Instructable, when I got ever-so-slightly side-tracked.I came across this blog entry about a bunch of people who made their own, rather unique, sundial:Our friends in the village are building a garden from scratch, to go with their new house. A key part of garden planning is to get the major design "features" sorted out ahead of the planting. One of the things that the boys wanted was a sundial, so work has started there. The plan follows the traditional method of sundial construction, as you will see from the pictures:1. Buy a World War II anti-aircraft gun (preferable the portable kind)2. Put it in the garden.3. Make sure the safety catch is on.4. Invite some like-minded nutters round for a barbecue and get them working the elevation controls.5. Set the barrel to exactly 52 and a bit degrees elevation (to match the latitude of the garden).6. Do some nifty work with a calculator and a compass to figure out where the hour markers go for precise "Northmoor Time".7. Unilaterally declare independence - and if anyone argues....:lol:Link to Blog

Reinforced Anti-theft Backpack Straps

Hey guys, I'd really like a cutproof backpack without spending big bucks on it. Can anyone take a regular (aka cheap) backpack and run some steel cable through the straps without making it uncomfortable to wear? Should the cable extend beyond the straps into the fabric of the bag itself? Thanks in advance!

Anti Gravity Idea...

OK I had this idea. I was online and thought up this idea for an anti gravity machine. This is it: use extremely static negatively charged materials for anti gravity. It could work the same way lightning clouds do. The base of the cloud is negatively charged and the ground become positively charged. Now if the material of the anti gravity "thing" is charged with static electricity, wouldn't it repel the ground? Now I am by far no expert in any of this...I just thought it up. What do you guys think?

Anti-gravity Machine concept

This is a concept I came up with for an idea of an anti-gravity machine.  Let me just state for the record... I do not think this will actually work.  However, while I am quite certain this idea should not work... based upon my limited knowledge of science... it would seem like it could work.  Unfortunately I know I am never going to spend the thousands if not millions of dollars to build this concept to find out. The basic premise of the idea is the use of angular momentum to overcome the force of gravity.  Imagine if you will, a gyroscope spinning at such a high velocity that its outward force overcomes the downward force of gravity.  Naturally, one of the big obstacles is generating the speeds necessary to create the velocity such that angular momentum is greater than downward force. What I essentially propose is a spinning ring that is propelled in the same way as a maglev train.  Using Electromagnetic propulsion or EMP to accelerate a ring in a vacuum by the utilization of a flowing electrical current and magnetic fields may in theory generate the speeds necessary for the force to overcome gravity.  Unfortunately, the power to run such a vehicle and the weight to power ratio are significant obstacles. Two of these rings above one another I theorize can create tremendous propulsion if the angles of the rings were changed.  Using hydrolics to change the angle of alignment of these two rings may create incredible forward momentum.  Once more, such a vehicle would not be limited to operation within Earth's atmosphere unlike jet or other propulsion mechanisms.  In fact, it should operate at peak efficiency in a zero gravitational environment. This is all theory... and I'd love to know if it is indeed as crazy as it sounds.

New Instructables Contest Page Format, Unfair?

I saw, (And hope you have to), the new format for the contest pages. When I say contest pages I mean the Tooltips contest, Share the Love Contest, Anti-yo contest, and any other to come. I dislike the new format for the pages because I feel it gives a few of the instructables members an unfair advantage over everyone else. On the old pages, everyones instructables were listed on one page, but on the new ones, the most popular are the only ones shown on the front page of the contest. And it's so hard to find the "View All" button, that not many people will likely search through the rest of the insturctables. I just think that having a couple of the lead I'bles on the front page will keep them on top and not give everyone a fair advantage by having them on the same page regardless of popularity. I hope someone else feels this way. Thanks Gunk On Floor

Gun in Making: Anti-Tank Rifle Mk. 2

I am posting pics of a gun I am currently making. It will be a very long gun, probably 4' 8", but I ran out of pieces, so I will not know for a few weeks. The reason I am calling it "Anti-Tank" is because it is the ONLY knex rifle I know of that can fire the 7 1/2" grey/black rods, and it is the "Mk. 2" because the first version did not work. This rifle was inspired by the anti-tank rifle from Battlefield 2142. Enjoy. If this turns out, I should have an instructable up in a month or so. Pic 1: The gun so far. Pic 2: The gun so far from the back. 6/6 UPDATE:I have designed the trigger system today. It will not be a block trigger, but a sear system, which means that it now has a true trigger. I have also added a pic of the internals, as danny suggested.

Airsoft/Spudgun crossover: Anti-Personnel Explosive thingies

Its a PVC/ABS thing that works like a spud gun, but launches a powder cloud (and potentially BB's). It's remote-triggered, so it can be buried underground, and only the top has to be removed, so it can be permanent. It works in the same way as a spud gun. I'll try to get diagrams up tomorrow, and if I can build it, pictures and an instructable, of course.

Problems posting comment / need anti-duplicate-posts

I was trying to post a comment and it wasn't doing anything when I pressed "Make Comment". Even after I refreshed the page like 10-20 times. I always copy (cmd+a and cmd+c) my comments before I hit the post button. For other websites, sometimes I run into an error for the first submit. But on Instructables, I reloaded the page so many times and pasted my comment and hit the button but nothing. Finally I just decided to hit the Make Comment button like it was an arcade fighter game. Then suddenly there were like 15 duplicates of my comment. I had to slowly delete one by one, each delete press had required a page reload so it was slow. I posted to: https://www.instructables.com/id/Repairing-a-Wrecked-Motorized-Bicycle/ You guys need a better client side submit function and a server side anti-duplicate message post. If you are running PHP I can probably come up with something about the anti-duplicate post. But for a better javascript submitter, well I gotta open my can of worm brains without a can opener to plan and implement a good function.

Well, its nice to see the that the winner has common sense on his side.I've grabbed various bits of this from Gizmodo, whom got it from Tom's Hardware."I'd say that Macs are less secure for the reasons we've discussed here (lack of anti-exploitation technologies) but are more safe because there simply isn't much malware out there. For now, I'd still recommend Macs for typical users as the odds of something targeting them are so low that they might go years without seeing any malware, even though if an attacker cared to target them it would be easier for them."Be sure to read the Article before you start flaming.It mirrors what me and goodhart were saying before,A computers security is based entirely on the user.I used windows for over 2 years, with no anti-virus, no anti-spyware. Just a good firewall, and my common sense.My first rule of computing common sense is, only download pictures, music, and movies.If your going to get some illegal software get it from someone else whom has used the install files, and knows they work!Also, do not trust ll.13 when he links to your a serial website without informing you that most of them are Trojans.

On average, this grenade can fling various shrapnel (green rods, ball joints and connectors, etc...) up to 25 feet. The best feature of the grenade, besides its blast radius, is how YOU DON'T NEED TO REASSEMBLE IT; you just reload the shrapnel, and toss again.I also have a slightly different version of this that can be fired from a Knex RPG!!!!! (coming later this year, because the M4 is using most of my pieces).If you want i will post an instructable for it but you can probably build from pictures.

Plasma Rifle Charity Auction

Hi there, i though i would post this here, as to draw attention, and also allow discussion.Due to making more and more items, i am running out of room.so, sadly, i am going to be selling my loved plasma rifle.You can see the construction and build quality here *Plasma Rifle -ible*All proceeds from the auction will be donated to Crimestoppers, who help out with a lot of anti-knife and gun crime over here in the UK, whom also happen to be having an anti-kife and gun week soon. the charity can be found here CrimestoppersI think the best way to sell this, is with a private auction. Basically, send me a private message, and the highest amount wins.The auction will end next saturday at 1.00am BST(note - if the private auction does not work, or for some reason not permitted i will then post the item on ebay)The rifle itself makes for a great conversation piece, to sit as part of your collection. Or for use in your latest indie film!Thanks for reading.Jakeps, this i also posted this topic under market place, but i wasn't sure wether that was the right place, or here.
