Easy wiring projects

I have seen beginner electronics projects but most of the things that they make arent really functional theyre just kinda display things like led throwers or custom made circuit board. I want to learn electronics but not by reading a guide but by doing the diy projects that create electronics items that are functional....does anyone know of any?

Easy Interactive Mirror?

Okay I had an idea to make an interactive mirror with some mirror grade acrylic and an old android phone. Simple enough I could just mount the phone behind the mirror to display the weather for ex. But wouldn't it be cooler to be able to use the capasative screen? So that is my question, how can i have the android phone recognize my touch? Maybe use a different material besides acrylic? Any suggestions? Thanks.

Its all nice-looking! And what do you know, I added the Allsteps link in for you!You probably want this for yourself, dontcha? Don't worry! Just type this in the URL of your favorite browser!http://instructables.thruhere.net/id/add/name/YOUR_DESIRED_SLUG/id/INSTRUCTABLE_IDThe "slug" is the thing that goes on the end of the URL, in the above case, it was "biobattery". It can be numbers or letters, but it is case-sensitive!The instructable ID should be JUST that random string. No slashes, no ?ALLSTEPS, just the random letters/numbers.Please, please don't abuse this, please. If I find that someones been taking up multiple slugs for an instructable, or not linking to an instructable, you're going to be sorry ;-)All of you who say I should being doing something else, this was done in less than fifteen lines of python! Thats why theres no nice page to create those links, because I'd have to spend 10 minutes making it. I actually spent more time on this post than getting it to work!And if anyone wants to donate a nicer domain, just ping the above domain to get my IP, and let us know ;-)PS: If you hate "instructables.thruhere.net", you can use "ytm.ath.cx", if you can remember it!

Cheaper, more easy DIY

I think that this site should have a lot more cheap and easy DIY projects...While i think all the projects are great, like the CNC machines and advanced electronics, i really think that we need to have a lot more simplified and easier instructables that are featured that people don't have to go out and buy a 100$ CNC machine for.  I'm not saying that the site doesn't have easy ones, just less of them are featured than harder more complex ones.  Just my two cents, please don't hate.

Resistors for a project, easy question!

Hi all, This is an easy question about resistors, its been years since I use any. So, I have a replay which is rate 12v DC and 2amp. The power supply is 12v DC and 6 amp. V = I X R R =  V / I so R = 12 / 2 = 6ohm So I need a 6ohm resistor? Is that correct? I can't believe I have forgotten this! thanks Gary

Cheap and easy digital tachometer?

I convert engines from weedeaters, leaf blowers, etc. for use on large model airplanes.  I use an aftermarket electronic ignition on the engines.  The ignition uses a Hall effect sensor and a magnet to trigger the CDI ignition.  I would like to build a digital tachometer that would use that same trigger.  They sell them for $25.00, but I thought it would be fun, and cheaper, to make one (or several) myself. Can anyone help with a circuit and parts list? Thanks!! vettebob

In the end I have a huge mess and have no space to do anything. I picked up a cheap 3 slot mail sorter but it filled up too quickly and didn't have enough slots to separate my mail effectively, and the cat kept knocking it off the table. I'm looking for an organizer to hang on the wall that has about 10 slots or more and a place for stationary, pens, paper clips, post-its, etc... All the ones I have found online are way too expensive.

Halloween Easy Costumes Winners

First of all - congratulations to all the finalists! Our Halloween Easy Costumes finalists shared some absolutely fantastic costumes! Here at Instructables we are always impressed with how the simplest of materials can be turned into the most amazing Halloween costumes. Not only were our finalists super creative and resourceful, their costumes were well documents and could easily be recreated on a small budget and with very little time. We loved reading all the tips and tricks for getting a costume just right, substituting materials and customization. Picking winners was challenging, but we know you'll be just as impressed as we are with them! And so, without further ado... FIRST PRIZE Composer Busts by davidandora. This costume is not only incredibly easy to do, but it's an original concept and looks fantastic. Another fun attribute is that it looks even better when grouped together, so this costume is perfect for you and your friends! SECOND PRIZE (alphabetical order) HAWKEYE. by Mr.Sanchez How to make a Thor Costume by The Rambler Minecraft Steve Costume by pjkumpon pjkumpon's Minecraft Steve Costume was one of the best we've got on Instructables - looks amazing and the finishing touches like adding velcro to keep the head on straight or adding foam for comfort truly made it a top notch costume! Hawkeye and Thor used hot glue and craft foam in fabulous and inventive ways - both costumes are definite proof that those two materials can make great costume armor. THIRD PRIZE (alphabetical order) Duct Tape TMNT Shredder Costume for $8.11 by imamathguy Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader (Kid-friendly) by eric3dee Make an award-winning costume in one night with packing tape and newspaper by morganlemae Mr. Fredrickson from UP - Halloween costume, 8mo+ by T_Albrecht YOSHI HOODIE by jtrask1 Our third prize winners really shined when it came to using household and ready made materials! Mr. Fredickson's PVC pipe walker was perfect - and we loved the idea of adding extra weight to it to help with stability. And the sweater vest and bow tie were too cute! Shredder's cardboard and duct tape armor came together quick and was ingenious - the duct tape is a great substitute for metal. The Yoshi Hoodies were a great project - we loved how the author took a simple piece of clothing and was able to make a cute costume that looked great and was easy to wear out trick or treating! morganlemae's tree costume shows the potential of packing tape in costume making - I can't wait to see if it spawns more packing tape costumes. And last but not least, the creative use of materials like ace bandages and a milk jug for the Luke Skywalker and Vader costume was really impressive - not to mention the absolutely adorable photos! Congratulations to all that entered! It was so much fun reviewing all the entries. Our Halloween contests make us realize we truly have the most creative and expressive community on the internet. You are all amazing - thank you for sharing with us. :D
