Head to Head Challenge: 9

Behold, my second attempt at an instructables contest! This is the second installment of the Head to Head challenges, my first one kind of petered out after one winner. :PThe rules are simple: volunteer members will be asked to create an Instructable based on the movie or the short film 9. Whoever creates the better Instructable (higher quality, cooler, featured, most voted for, etc) will win the patch seen below. This time around, there is no deadline (but try to keep it within a month), and you can compete with up to four different people at the same time. Just remember, only one of you will win. I will allow up to four separate competitions, same as the last challenge.Have fun, hope this isn't too confusing!http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0472033/ _x_VS._x_ (VS. _x_VS._x_ )_x_VS._x_ (VS. _x_VS._x_ )_x_VS._x_ (VS. _x_VS._x_ ) _x_VS._x_ (VS. _x_VS._x_ )

heads or tails?

I've come up with a great way to play heads and tails on the web! first a person (the challenger) asks someone to play. then the defender PMs the challenger to call heads or tails. then a moderator (adrian monk) will flip a coin at her end and declare the results publicly. if the defender called the winning side, he wins, if the defender called the losing side, the challenger wins

Head to Head Contest: You Choose.

I've decided to test an idea for some friendly competition. The rules are simple: two volunteer members will be given a week to create an Instructable based on a common subject. Whoever creates the better Instructable (higher quality, cooler, featured, most voted for, etc) will win a patch similar to the images below. Because this is the first run, and I can't think of a subject, the competing members will have to agree on a subject of their choosing. If there is a flood of volunteers, the community will vote on who they want to see face off. In this trial, I will allow up to four separate pairs to compete. If this doesn't make any sense, well, I just woke up! :PThe stats are as follows:Lithium Rain VS. gmjhowe: Card, any kind of card, and it has to plug into a computer. Deadline: to be determined. Matt1497 VS. watermelonhead : Duct tape hoodie. Deadline: 10th of August. _x_VS._x_ :subject. _x_VS._x_ :subject.

Head to Head: Member Created Contest Idea

I just had an idea for some friendly competition. I'm not sure if this has come up before, I tried searching but came up with nothing. A forum topic would be posted asking two or more volunteer members to create an instructable based on a common theme, say, a steampunk altoids tin device. They'd be given a week to post their instructable, and whoever makes the better iBle gets a patch. I was just wondering what your opinions are. Also, I haven't thought of a theme yet.

Shaving me head for charity

I'm going to be shaving my head for charity, in order to microfinance third world countries. I was wondering if anyone on instructables would like to help by donation. I'll post before and after pictures on here once I get the amount of money we need (Which is about 1800 dollars, to buy a proper carpentry set for a man in Ghana.) I'm also working with people in my community to do this. You won't be scammed as you don't need to give me any money. Here's how it'll work: 1: Post here how much you'll donate 2: Go to KIVA.com and register an account 3: I will provide you with a link to the recipient 4: You will donate the money on a given day, at which point (when I see that the transaction is through) I will shave my head, pictures and all. 5: You may laugh at my discomfort.

Motorized Panoramic head with microcontroller

Hi All, I want to build a motorized panoramic head. It must be made in PIC or ATMEL because I have only these options. Arduino board are not available to me  How it works.  Its basically controlling two stepper motors using inputs from photographer. Photographer inputs values in parameters and than microcontroller uses these parameters to rotate camera frame and take pictures. Parameters are as under: There are two stepper motors. One motor rotates frame of camera on x-axis and one rotates it on y-axis.  1. For x-axis motor parameters    a. Total numbers of steps to rotate.    b. One motor movement = 1 stepper motor step or more. For example we can move stepper 2      steps in on movement    c. After each movement (point#2) It takes image or press camera button by using relay or optocoupler    d Time Delay : When camera takes picture it takes time to save on memory card. We can define time in seconds as per picture size.    e : When it completes total number of steps defined in step#1. It moves back to its zero position. 2. For Y-axis moto parameters     a: When first motor completes its full number of steps than y-axis motor is activated.     b: y-axis: Total number of steps      c: one movement = how much motor steps. just like x-axis motor parameter     d:   Time Delay : same as x -axis motor. time delay after tilting frame.      e: y-axis motor just performs only one movement. Than again it activates x-axis motor.     f: Panoramas are made in multi rows. so this process of x-axis and y-axis motor activation should keep on going. It is terminated when y-axis motor completes its total number of steps. So the whole process is like this Turn on microcontoller  Add parameters for x-axis and y-axis motors click on start button microcontroller starts rotating frame on x-axis Frame start moving in steps. Than frame completes its first x-axis turn now microcontroller activates y-axis motor. Y-axis motor tilts frame upper arm in one direction.   code checks it is Y-axis motor final movement or more to come. If more than it activates x-axis motor. X-axis motor starts repeating whole process which it previously did. Than after full movement on x-axis and it activates y-axis motor. This process is terminated when total movement defined for y-axis motor is achieved. CAN ANYBODY MAKE ITS CIRCUIT AND PROGRAM CODING ? I M TOTALLY BLANK IN MAKING CIRCUITS AND WRITING CODES.

Is there something going on in my head? Answered

     Well, I don't have a mental problem or anything, but it often gets weird and I just can't help but to ask. I'll recount several months before, around March or May last year. I was practicing Morse code, practicing with visuals, practicing with audios. After a few weeks of practice, I started hearing Morse code in my head, as in out of nowhere I literally hear it (completely random, it's not spelling out anything last I checked). I asked around about it (deleted the question though) and someone mentioned it's not normal/it's rare. Then fast forward into around November or December, I keep hearing that Morse encoded "SMS" ring-tone from a phone (it's quite popular here, heard it more than a thousand times). I kept searching for that cellular phone, but to no avail. I covered my ears with pillows, and I still kept hearing it. I then concluded that it was in my head. The end result was I couldn't fall asleep for 3 hours lying down on the bed. It's something like LSS (Last Song Syndrome, search it up if you don't know it) to the extremes (to the point that it resonates in your head and you can hear it as an audible tone not from your thoughts). Any thoughts as what may have been causing this?

Head mounted camera records what you look at

The EyeSeeCam is a head-mounted device developed at the University of Munich Hospital that uses four cameras to record what your eyes are looking at. Two cameras are used to track your eyes, one records what your head is pointed at, and the last one uses the data from the first two cameras to record where they're looking. The creators list some nice uses for this, but I keep thinking that this would be great for a first-person shooter. Or maybe something more altruistic like an interface for those with ALS that the EyeWriter was designed for.

Hanging a pulley from the ceiling using electrical Strut for the purpose of overhead lifting.?

Hello out there, I am currently working on organizing my garage. Part of my organization project is to find a way to utilize the most available space possible. I am looking at hanging some items like a wheel barrow and a tow behind de-thatcher on the wall. My ceiling is 10ft high and I want to hang them as high up on the wall as possible. To help get the items up and down every time I need them, I plan on hanging block and tackles from the ceiling for each item. Unfortunenaly one of the items does not line up under a joist. To overcome this my plan is to hang a 20” pieces of shallow electrical strut (lagged in on each end to a joist) and then use a strut nut, 3/8 threaded eye bolt, and a strut washer(see picture for set up). Do you think that will hold? At MOST I would never lift anything heavier than 80lbs(and that would be a rarity). The average weight would be around 40lbs. For the items that do line up under a joist I was going to use a screw eye (I can’t access the top to through bolt it). The screw eyes I bought at the local hardware store have an SWL of 160lbs but say “not for overhead lifting”. Again using 80lbs as my max load, should I be worried about the “not for overhead lifting” label?

How can I mod a head-set type microphone into a omnidirectional microphone to pick up many voices in a room. Answered

The mic will be used to pick up audio from numerous people through out a living room, and transmitted streaming via an XBOX 360 controller.  I am also trying to use existing materials, in addition this will later be built into a true instructable.   Any pointers would be awesome, I even toyed with the idea of making it into a parabolic mike and pointing it at the ceiling to pick up sounds through out the room.  Currently the microphone has an area where the sound is obviously designed to be picked up only from the speakers mouth.  Good news is its easy to take the headset apart, its screwed rather then glued together.  The Bad news, all the wiring is ultra thin enamel coated, so very evil to solder, well for me anyhow.  I have included a picture of the actual headset.  The ear-phones will be redirected to amplified speakers and the 2.5mm jack has to remain to hook up to the controller.  This is not because it is some special jack, just trying to make it appear stock when I'm done.  Any help would be awesome, and credit will be given of course, thanks in advance.
