Micro High Voltage

I'm going to attempt to make a super micro tesla coil that is 100% contained (unless it runs off of like 12 volts dc, then I'll use a wallwart). Of course, one of the i biggest problem is the power supply. So this is what I'm asking, what's the best way of ramping up the voltage? A tiny toroid transformer? An inductor that gets pulsed? Voltage Multiplier? Something with static electricity? Some type of Inverter? Using Greinacher Cascades? A marx generator hybrid? Other stuff I havn't heard of?

sensors microcontrollers

Hiya guys is there anyone that can guide me to finding an instructable that deals with interaction in remote places using a micro-controller. For instance people in 2 different locations in the world, want to engage or enhance social bond or interaction by using a motion or proximity sensor and internet of things for instance triggering a sound or an led light that can be sensed in a remote location. So one location motion is detected and the other location this detection can also be seen, if that makes sense? For instance similar to this kind of project  http://goodnightlamp.com/ Could this be done? Thanks

Adafruits serial programmer help needed

For anyone that owns the serial port programmer, I need help. Where the plug is (cable plug to the micro circuit) What pins are what? the row thats o o-o-o-o- (1 alone, 4 connected) is the + - - - - - right? and whats miso and mosi then? Help! D:I don't under stand on the 10 pin clip, what the heck is what. The sites diagram says theres 9 circus, 1 square. well, theres 10 squares!! It also shows near the plus side, the other 4 pins are ground. well, that means the MOSI,(NC)RESET,SCK, and MISO are all connected. Dont think so.For people who have the circuithttp://img402.imageshack.us/my.php?image=picture435mw5.jpgIt be nice if u can label the 10 pins for me, thanks

Windbelt, Cheap Generator Alternative, Set to Power Third World

Working in Haiti, Shawn Frayne, a 28-year-old inventor based in Mountain View, Calif., saw the need for small-scale wind power to juice LED lamps and radios in the homes of the poor. Conventional wind turbines don't scale down well -- there's too much friction in the gearbox and other components. "With rotary power, there's nothing out there that generates under 50 watts," Frayne says. So he took a new tack, studying the way vibrations caused by the wind led to the collapse in 1940 of Washington's Tacoma Narrows Bridge (aka Galloping Gertie).Frayne's device, which he calls a Windbelt, is a taut membrane fitted with a pair of magnets that oscillate between metal coils. Prototypes have generated 40 milliwatts in 10-mph slivers of wind, making his device 10 to 30 times as efficient as the best microturbines. Frayne envisions the Windbelt costing a few dollars and replacing kerosene lamps in Haitian homes. "Kerosene is smoky and it's a fire hazard," says Peter Haas, founder of the Appropriate Infrastructure Development Group, which helps people in developing countries to get environmentally sound access to clean water, sanitation and energy. "If Shawn's innovation breaks, locals can fix it. If a solar panel breaks, the family is out a panel."'Frayne hopes to help fund third-world distribution of his Windbelt with revenue from first-world applications -- such as replacing the batteries used to power temperature and humidity sensors in buildings. "œThere's not a huge amount of innovation being done for people making $2 to $4 per day," Haas says. "Shawn's work is definitely needed.'http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/industry/4224763.html?series=37

Micro k'nex gun

So I get the general feeling that micro knex are the bane of a knexer's existence. But I was thinking the other day, why couldn't a gun be built with micro knex? As far as I can tell (I don't actually own any) they are the same as regular knex, only smaller. If one amassed enough micro knex, couldn't one theoretically build a fully functioning knex gun in the miniature? I just thought that would be kind of cool to have. Thoughts?

Micro Water Heater/Cooler

The title says it all! I'm looking for a small enough unit to carry (under five pounds, optimally), that can either heat or cool any liquids passing through it. I was initially considering cooling plates, but that requires an extra pump and more equipment, which kind of brings me over my weight total.  It's also perfectly fine if both units are separate, as long as I manage to get my hands on something I can use.  Thanks!

Robot fliers in commando competition

People and micro-aircraft race to rescue 'hostages'Robots inspired by moths, locusts, flies and swifts will take to the sky this week in an international competition for micro aerial vehicles in Agra, India. Teams will vie for the title -- as well as up to US$600,000 in funding -- for their tiny flying machines.The mission calls for squads of aerial and ground robots to reconnoitre for human 'commandos' tasked with reaching 'hostages' in a building one kilometre from the launch point. The robots will need to detect and disarm simulated chemical mines in an urban environment, and guide the commandos past guard teams to the hostages -- all within 40 minutes.The robots will use a mixture of wireless communication with a ground-control team, and autonomous navigation."It's a tough competition," says entrant Hemendra Arya, an engineer at the India Institute of Technology in Mumbai. "It really gives a challenge for the designer."Micro aerial vehicles (MAVs) are hard to detect, maneuverable, portable, and more energy-efficient than larger aircraft. The United States is currently using first-generation MAVs the size of a rucksack to warn convoys about roadside bombs in Iraq.Larger unmanned aerial vehicles such as the Predator have been used for years to spot and attack enemies, but they need an airfield. The effort to build smaller craft got a boost when the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) began sponsoring competitions in late 1996. The US Department of Defense is co-sponsoring the Indian competition. more here

tiny addressable components

Hello everyone, I've got a question and am hoping someone can point me to the right places to figure this out. I am an avid r/c tinkerer. A question I have though, is: Is it possible to take your standard r/c servo, and install something into it to make it addressable? Why I want to do this is that I want to be able to control things from my handheld radio system beyond the 6/7 channel systems I have now, but not have to buy a radio system that will cost upwards of a thousand dollars to do more with it. I know, it will probably be easier to buy the uber-radio and just shell out the cash...I'd rather learn how to create something like this myself and learn some more electronic gadgeteering along the way :) I don't even know if thats the right approach, so, if you have ideas on this I am all ears and would love to hear from you. Thanks so much for reading this and I am quite looking forward to hearing some ideas! :) -Mike

Arduino - Where and how to start?

Hello! I'm pretty new here, been browsing the site and looking at so many instructables I'd like to build but at least 1/5th of them use Arduinos. I've googled around, browsed some online eletronic shops, ebay and I've noticed there are many models of them, so my question is quite simple - which Arduino would be good for me as a starter? (Honestly I'd like to go with the cheapest as my budget is not big and I'm afraid I could damage it somehow which would not be nice) I'm familiar with C and C++ so I guess that helps me a little in programming the thing, now the only problem is that I've got nothing to program :) Thanks, Matiss.

Magnetic actuators - anyone here ever made one?

Magnetostrictive alloys like Galfenol are not only quite cheap but also quite possible to produce and machine at home. As it seems that right now I can't finnish anything without being stopped by something else that got my attention I am a bit stuch on all ends now LOL Anyway, I still have a few kg of rare elements like Gallium, Bismuth, Antimony and such that I misused for my testing of home made ferrites. So apart from making some fancy metals that melt at very low temperatures I thought a much better test usage would be to make something that for once has some real world use :) If you look up some of the research papers for Galfenol use or magnetostrictive materials in general you soon learn two things: a) You need a degree or have studied something related to fully understand the technical stuff behind it. b) Finding something that would give you enough info to make something that works as planned is next to impossible. I don't mind wasting some time on melting steel, machining some samples and do some testing but of course this takes a lot of time... So I was wondering if anyone here already experimented with magnetostrictive materials and their possible uses? Apart from micro actuators for minature things I don't have I was thinking of generator use. A lot of things produce wanted and unwanted vibrations, magnetostrictive alloys are capable of transforming them into electrical energy by simply using a coil around the material. For example the recoil of your favourite hunting rifle could in theory charge your dot sight or laser sight/flashlight. Or the otherwise useless vibrations of big machines or rock tumblers can be turned into something to charge your phone. Not to mention impact sensors or flat surface loudspeakers....

soft serial communication on Arduino Micro.

Hello all, I have a few Arduino Micro units, and need to connect them together (in a mesh network) so that every unit in it is interchangeable, meaning that any unit may be in connection with more than one unit. As the Master/Slave form is out of question at this stage (because any given unit cannot be both Master and Slave at the same time, of course) I decided to go for a simple serial communication. However the Arduino Micro units (and frankly none of the Arduinos) do not have sufficient serial pins and I was advised to use Soft Serial instead. I was looking into the pin out of the Arduino Micro but cannot quite figure out which pins I can use for the serial comm.; I need 4 to 6 serial communications. Any help is much appreciated, as the nature of the problem may not be changed. So I need to solve it as it is. Karim.

peer to peer communication between Arduino Micros, serial? half-duplex?

Hello all, I have a few Arduino Micro units, and need to connect them together (in a mesh network) so that every unit in it is interchangeable, meaning that any unit may be in connection with more than one unit. As the Master/Slave form is out of question at this stage (because any given unit cannot be both Master and Slave at the same time, of course) I decided to go for a simple serial communication.

I was looking into the pin out of the Arduino Micro but cannot quite figure out which pins I can use for the serial comm.; I need 4 to 6 serial communications. If not Micro, what other Arduino (or any other solution) would you suggest? Each unit needs to have the following information ready at its serial ports: - its ID - its MAD - sensor value (analog or digital) Any help is much appreciated, as the nature of the problem may not be changed.

Need help with stepper motor controlling

Hi guys, I'm trying to build a contraption based on 6 stepper motors, wich I need to control via a Raspberry PI. Since I'm no good with electronics and my friends who might help are unavailable this period, I thought I'd ask around here for some advice/help. I know I need drivers/controllers for the motors, but each kind of motor requires a different kind of driver (based on power consumption, on electronic specs etc.) The motors I'm planning to use are: 42BYGHW811 and 28bygh102 / 35BYG103 (choice made based on needed power at smallest possible dimensions), and micro-stepping is something I could really use, because I need as fine a rotation as possible. So, the questions are: 1. can you point me to the right drivers, to buy? or give me some pointers as to what parameters to look for in a driver for these motors? 2. if not, can you design and build one driver capable of controlling all 6 motors, or separate drivers, and able to also achieve micro-stepping, at a decent price? I'm planning to make this project of mine available as a kit for sale, in the future, once we see it working - so bringing aboard a guy who really knows this kind of stuff is something I'm also considering (as of right now, we're 2 guys involved: I'm the designer and the other guy is the mechanical builder - we still need the electronics guy and perhaps the programmer) Any ideas/feedback are more than welcome! Thank you, Eros

how can one incorporate multiple USB-like connections to/from an arduino?

Hello All, I am hoping to create peer-to-peer connections (essentially a network) of multiple arduinos (or for that matter, ATMega's). However these do not have separate power supplies and each one will be powered up when connected to the other previously connected one. At the same time I would like these units to know about each other's existence when they connect (each chip should know if another chip is connected to it). I was told to think of a USB-like connection where you can share both the power and the data on the same, say, bus line. My question is how do I create multiples of this connections (more than one) and how could I make sure they work as OTG (e.g. hot plug) and can be used as both host or client at any given time? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks. Karim.

Dremel Micro Repair/Reuse

Recently at the end of 2016, I acquired a Dremel Micro cordless rotary tool from a garage sale/yard sale for about $20. I used it maybe 3 - 4 times until it didn't want to hold a charge for long. Basically when I put it on the charger, the LEDs scroll top/down indicating it is charging but after a minute or two they stop their normal scrolling sequence and they all stay lit up, which isn't even mentioned of in the manual. The fuel gauge battery indicator shows up red meaning it's near its battery life. At this point, I'm considering either to salvage the motor or buy a new battery for the dremel (which are 2 Sanyo 14650 batteries that are soldered onto a circuit board inside). I'm just wondering is there something that I have failed to do that would make the dremel not hold a charge? Thanks in advance!

Custom PIC

Savage innovations does not offer a small OOPic chip. OOPic is my favorite MCU and I want a small one. Soooo, I decided I want to make one. In theory, The process is simple. The OOPic 2 is a PIC16F77 with custom firmware. I ordered a similar chip (PIC16F876A) to put the firmware on so I basically have a smaller OOPic. Savage innovations does not offer the OOPic firmware as a download so I have to extract it from my OOPic2. Here's my questions. Will a JDM2 programmer be able to extract the firmware? Will WinPic800 work to do this? Will this erase my OOPic's firmware entirely? Is it even possible? I would like some input and if you guys say it will be okay, I am going to do it. (I'll post and ible if it works.

Looking for the smallest wide angle lens I can find

Premise: I have a droid incredible and I love taking pictures with its awesome 8MP camera.  I don't like its depth of field however.  I'm sitting here right now, looking at the camera enclosure, and I'm wondering if I might be able to pop open the red dome of the camera and slide in a tiny wide angle lens.  I've seen the cellphone wide angle lens kits you can buy for things like your iphone, and I actually did buy one for my Zi6.  Worked amazingly well, but even in that small form factor, it sticks out too far for me if i were to use this on my droid inc. Objective: I'm looking for an elegant solution that keeps the wide angle in the enclosure, and can't be knocked off or removed while in the pocket. How feasible would this be?  Would it be possible to find a small enough piece of glass that would give a wide angle view in such a small form factor?  I'm just guessing here, but I'd say the diameter would be 8mm and probably 2 or 3 mm in depth.  Thats pretty tiny... Anyway, I just wanted to get some suggestions from the DIY crowd.  I'll include some pictures of the camera's enclosure to take a look at. Thanks.

electric micro kart

I want to build a micro kart with a range of 10 miles at an average speed of about 5mph, with a reverse function. Iv been looking at blogs and Instructables for micro karts and DIY electric longboards hoping to directly copy the basic components of another project however all the projects iv found are for high speed machines that often need a bump/kick start and i need something that will happily run at consistently low speeds without an assisted start. I don't have the electronics knowhow to work out what combination of motor, battery and ESC i need but from what iv read it sounds like i might need an outrunner (?) type motor which is apparently good for low speeds and high torque. Iv been looking at the Turnigy motors on the Hobbyking website as they were recommended by a few blogs, i tried posting this question on their forums a week ago but got zero response. Could you take a look at their motor selection and recommend the appropriate combination of parts? Thanks

Controlling 9 Micro Servos with Arduino & Ultrasonic Sensor

Hello! I'm new to Arduino and trying to build a series of moving cogs attached to micro servos, which are triggered by an Arduino controlled Ultrasonic Sensor. My code so far looks like this #include #define trigPin 12 #define echoPin 13 #define CONNECTED_SERVOS 9 // macro just adds two - the first servo is attached to digital pin 2, this gives us upto 12 servos - digital 2 to 13 #define SERVO_TO_PIN(x) (x+2) Servo myServos[CONNECTED_SERVOS]; Servo myservo; void setup() {   Serial.begin (9600);     pinMode(trigPin, OUTPUT);   pinMode(echoPin, INPUT);     // attach the servos   for(int nServo = 0;nServo < CONNECTED_SERVOS;nServo++)   {     myServos[nServo].attach(SERVO_TO_PIN(nServo));   }    } void loop() { int duration, distance,pos=0,i;   digitalWrite(trigPin, LOW);    delayMicroseconds(2);   digitalWrite(trigPin, HIGH);   delayMicroseconds(10);   digitalWrite(trigPin, LOW);   duration = pulseIn(echoPin, HIGH);   distance = (duration/2) / 29.1;    Serial.print(distance);    Serial.println(" cm");   for(int nServo = 0;nServo < CONNECTED_SERVOS;nServo++)   {     if (distance >0 && distance < 30)   {      myServos[nServo].write(180);   }   else{     myServos[nServo].write(180);   }      }          But it isn't really the code that I am having a problem with. I know that I need an external power supply for the 9 servos but I am having difficulty figuring out what is best. I have tried attaching a 9V battery to the power and ground lines of the servos and it hasn't quite supplied enough, only making them move a little when i get closer to the distance sensor, then jittering about a bit before completely stopping. I have got a Switching Power Supply plug that has an output of 12V which I can use and plug directly into the Arduino? I also have voltage regulators that have an output of 5V available. Could somebody recommend how to wire these supplies up for the servos? Any help would be much appreciated!  Thanks

GBA owns the DS!

Hello? What happened? The PSP and DSi are all well and good but in my mind GBA games own them all! Sure, most are 2D and they cannot compete graphically with it's bigger cousins, but I would own my Gameboy Micro over a DS anyday (and I can say this genuinley because I had enough money to buy either a DS lite or a Gameboy micro and I chose the micro). I say this because compare a Sonic advance game to a Sonic Rush game. From a neutral perspective I found Sonic advance much more enjoyable than the DS version: It is simple (only 1 screen to focus on!) and none of these faffy side missions. And I would rather play SMB advance 3 than play some downgraded NFS for PSP. And let's not forget the biggest advantage of the GBM: PORTABILITY! It is the only true pcket console.

Feeding your MICRO TURBO

Is your little stream or creek to small to power a turbo generator. Try a Rampump This has several advantages that would not be possible without the use of this most humble and highly functional machine. A Rampump with a small head , can move the water to a reservoir or tank to an elevation of up to 50 - 80 feet, almost no limit with high head. Working around the clock this device can move a lot of water. Volume moved is dependent on water flow and physical size of the pump. with 50 head ft. the micro turbo can output some serious power. 10-15-20 minutes each hour. while draining the reservoir

Hi, there. I have a question about RN-42 bluetooth module. I want to make a bluetooth HID device (keyboard and mouse) and ,because of my direction of team project, it has two pieces. One arduino MICRO (using RN-42) is going to be master and the other MICRO (using HC-05) is going to be slave. Actually their roles can be changed! The goal is to connect RN-42 to my laptop while RN-42 is also connected to HC-05 and use this as a bluetooth keyboard. Now, Is it possible that RN-42 module has multiple connections?

Make picooz micro heli controller run from ac/dc adator

Hi all, this is my first question so bear with me.... I want to mod all my micro heli transmitter/chargers to run of a 9V dc power adaptor, I'm tired of changing/charging batteries for them and seen as I sit next to a power socket when I fly this is the best option. For this question I am focusing on the picooz sidewinder remote. What I have planned is to use a dc barrel or 3.5mm jack socket, connect - to the battery - on the pcb and connect the tip to +in on the pcb the switched tip to the battery so that when nothing is plugged in it automatically runs from battery. what I would like to know is... where to add a capacitor and what rating, this to provide enough power for the fraction of a second when the plug is pulled out, without this I would have to "trim" the controller each time because it would turn off for that small amount of time and forgotten where it has been trimmed to. thanks in advance. ps once I have this working I will be doing a full Instructable on this subject.
