Steampunk Mobile

Some great ideas come from taking a completely new gadget and making it something that looks like, and in this case sort of works like, something from the 19th century. This steampunk cell phone concept has no display. No 3G. No data plan. No games. It doesn't even have a dial pad. You make your calls with binary-coded punch cards, steampunk.All you get in this rugged brown package is an earpiece, (possibly faux) gauges, visible screws, and a spinning number-counter. Oh, and a hole punch every time you want to order a pizza.The project was developed for O2, aiming at the RPG player market (really!). I don't think it works. It would be cool if it did, but I don't think so...UnplggdOriginal designer

Reuse of old mobile

I am using a mobile phone  tracker site to track my car in case it is stolen.  I wanted to adapt the old mobile phone by stripping it down to essentials to ensure that the sim signal was still running but there was no need for the display / keyboard.  Is there an instructable or website that offers advice on how to do that? The phones are old nokia phones so not worried if they get trashed.

Contest voting on mobile?

Hi all, I did try and search for the answer to this but did not find it.   Someone was (very kindly) attempting to vote for my project in a contest via mobile but the voting button is not there.  Or is it and I missed it completely when I looked for it myself?  Seems odd that someone would not be able to vote while looking at an Instructable on their phone especially since most folks are mobile-oriented.  If someone could clue me in, that'd be great. Thanks!

Malware Mobile Ads

The mobile site for Instructables has been presenting rather unpleasant popup advertising. This twitter thread captures it rather well: https://twitter.com/winkleink/status/897077681443024899 Attempting to close these, or go back, results in more pop-up. The instructables content cannot actually be got to. It's not that users don't appreciate the need for ads. advertising maker sites - places for buying stuff, perfectly cool, and likely to get attention. Pop ups like this really make makers not want to avoid Instructables on phones. Seen on both Android and IOS.

Mobile Phones and Elevators

Ahem. Theoretically, an elevator is a perfect faraday cage -- no radio waves should be able to get into them. Mobile phones shouldn't work in them. But rogers says that their phones do work in them. So here's my question for you, instructables community: do rogers phones work in elevators? If so, why?The only theory that we could come up with was that each elevator has a little repeater in it, but that seems a bit costly.

Help with mobile makerspace

I work at a technology center. We teach a variety of skills at our school such as welding, culinary arts, and animation. I am trying to get a program started where we go to various schools in the community with a simple project for students to build. We walk them through the process and at the end they have something cool and have learned something. In time I hope to get a sort of mobile makerspace started, but that is further off. I was thinking that I could get community sponsors to donate surplus materials or funds. The students at our school could help in the creation of these kits. We could have kids putting together birdhouses that have been cut and predrilled, or created a simple flashlight with an led, some batteries and a roll of duct tape. Do any of you know of any programs similar to what I am describing? What sort of problems might I encounter? Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. This is a project I am very excited about.

Mobility scooter maintenance

I have a Monarch Ryder mobility scooter and I need to occasionally pump up the tyres. The problem is that I live by myself and it is very painful for me to bend down low enough to attach the hose to the tyres in order to pump them up. I have been going to my local garage and they have done it for me so far, but I want to be able to do it myself. I have considered investing in a ramp but I have no way of supporting the top end. I did think of getting solid tyres that never need air, but I've been told that this would make the ride very painful for me as every bump would be amplified. Is there any sort of long hose I could permanently attach to each tyre that I could secure higher up on the scooter when I am not using it? Does anyone have any other ideas?

Mobile pc communications

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this so i'm sorry if its not. I am looking to control a set of switches using an old mobile phone connected to my PC. Sending a text message to the phone would let you do various things depending on the text message content. I don't even know if this would be possible but it is something I am looking to do and this seems to be one of the solutions (if possible) to what I need to do. If anyone else can help me with a way to control anything remotely without a wireless Internet connection, possibly even if its only 3G/EDGE/HSDPA Thanks

Mobile phone screamer?

Has anyone got a schematic or instructions for making a noise generator I can attach to my cell phone through the mike/earphone jack? I am getting a lot of "junk" calls with faked return numbers, who will not remove me from their call lists and typically call 3-5 times a day, even at night. My provider (AllTel) says there's nothing they can do to help me block calls with bogus or "unavailable" return numbers. OK, I admit this is more for my own sense of justice than anything else, but I'd sure like to have some sort of oscillator that would generate enough volume at a high pitch to at least give them a nice headache.

Mobile site profile view

I was directing a friend to my profile page. He had never seen Instructables before and I whatsapp'd him the link. He said he liked my projects and then mentioned some which weren't mine. Confused, I opened the link I sent him. On the mobile, obviously the mobile version popped up which goes like 'm.instructables.com/member/...'. In the mobile version, the favourite instructables appear on the top while after scrolling a bit, we come to the instructables which the person has published. Shouldn't it be the other way round, so the person's instructables appear on top as soon as someone views the profile?

Mobile phone signal Detector

I want to know if there is any 'mobile phone signal detector' already available in the market. The purpose is to find if anybody is using mobile phone for calls or messaging at restricted places. Jammers are not fine as some are exempted from making calls etc.. If there is nothing like that available, how to make one to detect the signal or even the phone from which the signal was emitted. Usually when we are about to receive a call or sms and if we are near a Speaker we get a specific noise through speaker, or if we are near a monitor (CRT) it flickers.  So I am sure there are ways to find this signal emission. Please suggest the options to do this....

Portable,rechargeable mobile charger? Answered

I've come up with a plan to make a potable mobile charger for my galaxy phone with a rechargeable 9 volts battery.My original mobile charger(220 VAC input) says it gives an output of 5VDC at 0.7 amperes and hence I decided to make it with the given ratings.So here's my plan-I'll use a 7805 to regulate the 9VDC from the battery to 5VDC.The 7805 gives a maximum of 1 A output.So here's my question should I use a current regulator(LM317) to limit the current from exceeding 0.7 amps or will the phone's battery draw the sufficient amps from the LM7805?Maybe it might be a good idea to assist the output with a resistor as a safety measure.So,what do you say?

Nasty looking mobile ads

A buddy of mine showed me this pop-up ad he got when he was looking over a guide I made recently.  He had the same issue the last time I made a guide.  These pop-ups are annoying enough that he never uses Instructables because of it.  To be honest, I don't blame him. I know you guys use AdSense for advertising and I don't really know the solution to this issue, but I wanted you all to be aware of it.  Less internet savvy people might be freaked out by ads like this.

Mobile Virtual Presence Device? Answered

Right, so in "The Big Bang Theory" there is an episode where Sheldon makes an rc stand with a monitor on, and it has live footage of his face on it.  There are ways to do this, but they all seem to point to using an rc car with a 10 metre range and 30 minutes battery.  The flaw with this, is that if you want to be at work using one, or at someone's house with it, then you're gonna need a lot more than 10 metres!  How can you make it so that you can control it anywhere, either using wifi or just connecting somehow?  (I'm sorry, I'm really bad at electronics, so excuse my poor understanding.)  As an example, you don't need wifi to text someone, so do you need it to control an rc vehicle?  Ideally, I'd like to make one at about £300-£400, and as like the one from the big bang theory as possible, so not just a tiny stand that people have to keep charging and you have to crane your neck to see.  I'd be happy to use a £60 tablet with skype for the video, but what I'm mainly concerned about is how to control the rc stand/vehicle from a distance away. Thanks a lot! -Finzaz

Mobile Solar LED marquee

I've got a feasibility question for the forum. I'm interested in prototyping an outdoor solar-powered LED marquee-display drawing messages from a modem/SIM card (and therefore updatable via SMS). The modem piece of this is certainly possible, I think I could whip this together with an arduino board if necessary.  The solar piece is questionable, given the voltage requirements of even a small LED display + modem + controller. Would love to hear people's thoughts on where to start with this.  I'm considering using the LED marquee instructable, or even creating the dot-matrix myself.  There are also hundreds of display manufacturers, so it seems like tinkering with a 12V display might be the fastest solution.  In terms of solar powered displays, however, I've found only one company doing this, and the costs are enormous.   Thanks for reading.
