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 !!!!

Can someone help with my anti auto theft arduino device? I am trying to use a reed switch and a relay.

     I am trying to build a device for my engineering project which is a anti theft device for cargo trucks in third world countries. Since cargo stealing is very common truckers already use satellite tracking. The device works in the following way, in an attempt to steal the truck a thieve tries to breach into the truck"s electrics to disable the satellite tracking, but the reed switch detects the breach and the arduino stops feeding power to a relay which is connected truck's electronic fuel injection system, thus making the truck's engine to stop and consequently immobilizing the cargo.      The system uses a 4x4 matrix keypad, one relay(I might add more) and one reed switch but I am planning to use two. When the sensor is breached the arduino is supposed to cut power to the relay. If the correct password in entered in the keypad the system turns the relays on until the sensor is breached again, if the wrong password is entered it remains locked.      I managed to find a password code a guy shared which worked with the keypad and the relays, but when I try to add a if statement to lock when the sensor is breached it simply does not work. Thanks in advance for the help. #include int Relay1 = 13; int Relay2 = 12; int greenPin = 11; int Sensor1 = A1; int Sensor1Valor = analogRead(Sensor1); int position = 0; const char * password = "123"; const byte ROWS = 4; const byte COLS = 4; char keys[ROWS][COLS] = {   {'1','2','3','A'}, {'4','5','6','B'}, {'7','8','9','C'}, {'*','0','#','D'} }; byte rowPins[ROWS] = { 8, 7, 6, 9 }; byte colPins[COLS] = { 5, 4, 3, 2 }; Keypad keypad = Keypad( makeKeymap(keys), rowPins, colPins, ROWS, COLS ); void setup() { Serial.begin(9600); pinMode(Sensor1, INPUT); pinMode(Relay1, OUTPUT); pinMode(Relay2, OUTPUT); pinMode(greenPin, OUTPUT); digitalWrite(Relay1, HIGH); digitalWrite(Relay2, HIGH); setLocked(false); } void loop()  { char key = keypad.getKey(); Serial.println(analogRead(A1)); if (key == '*' || key == '#') { position = 0; setLocked(true); } if (key == password[position]) { position ++; } if (position == 3) { setLocked(false); } if (analogRead(A1) > 300); { setLocked(true); } } void setLocked(int locked) { if (locked) { digitalWrite(greenPin, LOW); digitalWrite(Relay1, LOW); digitalWrite(Relay2, LOW); } else { digitalWrite(greenPin, HIGH); digitalWrite(Relay1, HIGH); digitalWrite(Relay2, HIGH); } }

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

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.

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.
