Lego Transformers G1 Megatron

Another sweet Lego transformer that I made. This one is really small and really complicated, and the fact that it's really fragile doesn't help lower the skill level.EDIT: Instructable posted!!!

DIY knitted iPhone gloves? Answered

I know there are some commercial products that can let you use your touch phone without removing your gloves, but most of them look really gaudy or cheap. Is there a material that I can preferably knit with that would let me use my phone without damaging it or letting precious heat escape my fingers? These are the commercial products:http://www.tavoproducts.com/http://www.dotsgloves.com/

instructables.com on android?

I was just wondering if there was such an app, if not is someone willing to port the iphone one to android devieces? This would be soooo sweet ^^

How do I fix a zoom G1 guitar pedal? Answered

My brother was standing on my amp to hang something and it fell. he said everything was fine, but then I tried to use my pedal and the knob to the left (the one that changes between what part of the effect you edit) wasn't working right. it doesn't do anything when you turn it, and only works when you push down on it. I have a jam session tomorrow, so I need to know ASAP.

Where can i find an easy to make transformer? Preferably one that actually transforms as well.

I want to make a G1 optimus like the one i saw in one of the videos, but i think it might be too hard.

Please Help for AutoLevel TronxyX5S

Hi, I apologize for the corrupt English first.I have a Tronxy X5S 3d printer. And I bought a sensor( SN04-N NPN) to add autolevel property to the printer. I thought I would be able to get rid of the small curves on the hotbed. I've arranged my commands according to autolevel as follows. But when I want to print a large shape, the extruder remains in the air at some points of the hotbed, print properly at some points, and at some points worth the hotbed(no filament output). So the autolevel property is not working properly. Can you help me? What am I doing wrong?My Marlin Configrution.h Changes//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////#define AUTO_BED_LEVELING_BILINEAR//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////#define X_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER -40 // X offset: -left +right [of the nozzle]#define Y_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER 20 // Y offset: -front +behind [the nozzle]#define Z_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER 0.5 // Z offset: -below +above [the nozzle]//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////#define X_MIN_POS 0#define Y_MIN_POS 0#define Z_MIN_POS 0.6#define X_MAX_POS X_BED_SIZE#define Y_MAX_POS Y_BED_SIZE#define Z_MAX_POS 410//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////#define GRID_MAX_POINTS_X 7 #define GRID_MAX_POINTS_Y GRID_MAX_POINTS_X//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////Set the boundaries for probing (where the probe can reach). #define LEFT_PROBE_BED_POSITION (20)#define RIGHT_PROBE_BED_POSITION (280) #define FRONT_PROBE_BED_POSITION (40)#define BACK_PROBE_BED_POSITION (320)************************************************** ***************************************My Repetier Host/CuraEngine Gcode Changes////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// G21G90M82M107G92 Z0G1 Z5G28G29G28 X0 Y0G28 Z0G1 Z15.0 F9000G92 E0G1 F200 E3G92 E0G1 F9000{IF_BED}M190 S{BED}{IF_EXT0}M109 T0 S{TEMP0}Please watch my problem

Touch Switches< Need electrical Help!

Hey there tech heads, I'm planning a project that will involve LED's (battery powered or wall powered, haven't decided) in a lamp set up. There won't be a lot of led's, maybe 4-6. The real question is I want to put a touch switch in, like this one...http://www.buyhardwaresupplies.com/?t=5&m;=g1&itemNumber;=3007044Is there an alternative? maybe something that is smaller? Will I have to get a transformer and just run wall power to the leds? Lend me a hand, cause this will be a great instructable down the road.

Android Password Saver

The result of boredom. Numbers layer tells you what each dot is labeled. The x-y layers represent the paths. X is the first dot, y is the one you move to after that. Just make the layers visible. I didn't bother making any long diagonals because I didn't feel like it and they're hard to use anyways. I find it useful to load a jpg on my miniSD so if I forget, I can go back and see what it was before I unlocked it. (I know it's overdone, but if I'm going to be using it all the time, I might as well make it pretty)

Any idea on how to make a camera kind of &quot;eye&quot; for arduino?

Any idea on how to make a camera kind of "eye" for arduino? And NO, I don't want to connect Arduino to a PC nor a laptop. Well, not a actually camera since: 1. no way arduino can process video stream. 2. all I need is a way for arduino to know if anything in front of it (about 90~120 degree field, around 3m distance) has moved or changed, and know where the change is in term of a simple x&y; coordinate. So instead of camera view, its more like a radar kind of view I need (the thing we see on movie that have submarine ) All I can think of is to use a huge amount of IR range finder(which only have 1.5m distance :\  ) or Ultrasonic range finder(which can't focus to one point :\  ), and arrange them so they a point outward from the same center (kinda like how old time TV work), so each range finder work like a pixel on the screen for arduino. (I don't need to display it, I just need Arduino to know where the change of environment is) So anyone have a better idea or better device suggestion than what I have? Even something that can only detect 1 axle will be better than the range finder solution. Thanks~ ===================================Update 1================================= While searching for new sensor other than the one I mentioned, I came across this>>> http://www.ebay.com/itm/270848882873?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 According to the seller: "Camera sensor generates image data which is then processed real-timely by control board and displayed on the screen.", Atmega 32 have the power to process video in real-time? So is it possible to use arduino to process image data?  I mean by adding some filter to the image, filter out anything other than the moving part, and find the position of the moving object.  Is that even possible with the power of Arduino? However with the price of that shield, I can just buy an old Google G1 phone to connect to Arduino and use Android camera to capture the video, process the image data, and send the movement's coordinate to arduino. Just want to find something simpler than adding a extra "brain" (Android) that I need to learn how to program xp.

Advanced Helmet

Advanced Helmet By: Arseny Ratnikov I want to create a helmet that looks like a sci fi helmet (mass effect, titanfall, halo, etc.) and that; **Want to make cool helmet, need help with having multiple camera feed output to multiple screens** * Protects my head (able to decrease force from impact by significant degree) * Can filter the air I breath (does not need to be super extreme filter, just filter out general junk, the better the filter the more pleased I am, but if it becomes too bulky/expensive then it is unnecessary)(Optional/Most Likely) * Has a HUD with my vitals on it. I would wear some sensors, such as HR monitor to have some cool biofeedback, maybe also include other information.(option) * Maybe even have it be a digital display where there are cameras on the front and maye back of the helmet that then are displayed on the interior screen, where I have voice commands setup for some different things. * Have the helmet be as sound proof as possible and have microphones where my ears would be, then inside the helmet speakers, so that I can modify the noise around me to be how I want it to be. I understand this would be rather difficult (at least including all of the bullets) and that it could even be a touch silly. Yet, I find this a rather intriguing pursuit and think it will help contribute to becoming a cyborg. Any tips would be greatly appreciated as I don't really know where to start for this. I can imagine a lot of the work might be done on an arduino, but I simply don't know the feasibility of modifying noises of the world around you and having the cameras on the helmet. So here's a little prioritization sheet I worked out, it is not exactly in order, and maybe you all have some suggestions on what might be more critical to design and functionality. Prioritization 1. Functionality a. Head protection a1. Padding/Inertia dampener a2. Sturdy/solid b. Control of phone through bluetooth b1. In helmet speakers b2. In helmet microphone b3. Voice control c. Control of other systems such as screens c1. Voice control of screens c2. Screen modification c3. Screen HUD and other functions (maybe GPS map, time, etc.) d. Camera view d1. Camera live to screen with little to no latency d1a. 360 degree view compressed to 180 degree screen (maybe) d2. Computer control of camera feed d2a. Visuals, different HUDs e. Sound modulation e1. Sound cancelling e2. Sound reproduction at low to no latency e3. Sound modification e3a. Changing pitch e3b. Change decibel levels e3c. Change relative level of external sounds f. The HUD f1. Display of vitals f1a. Heart rate, oxygenation, etc. (Requires some monitor) f2. Display of time and other running interests f3. Display of current location on google maps/GPS system g. Air Filtration g1. Filtration of air, relatively high quality g2. Seal on head or seal over mouth and nose or full body suit that connects to helmet h. Extra Features 2. Style a. Look good b. Look like popular sci-fi media c. Does not interfere with functionality and accents functionality How should I do this? I am planning on using some old phone screens if I can for the screen part and multiple cameras. I plan on using a raspberry computing system (might need multiple) to modulate the output from the cameras. How could I make multiple camera outputs lay onto multiple screens that looks good at three to five inches from the eyes? Also how can I make the raspberry pi control my phone and computer via voice, or at least change a screens properties? Thanks
