resources

Hi, i would just like to say that i have great difficulty getting resources for instructables, this is probably because i'm only 13 and live in the u.k. I have a small town near me but i barely ever go in, almost always with my parents (partly because i can't be bothered to go on my own). Hopefully i might get a debit card soon but even then im worried about bank statements my parents might look at.

Learning Electronics -- Resources?

Hello! I'm a 13 years old geek. I am good at programming and the software stuff, but doesn't know anything about electronics. When I see Arduino projects or other robotics/gadget projects here at Indstructables, I feel very sad because I don't know the nitty-gritty. So what are the resources on web available  where I can learn about electronics, robotics and the likes?  I know there are many books, but they're more of theory which takes a college-student to understand, and I'm not that. I want the books, websites which makes us understand these a little simpler way with practical stuffs too. Please list any website or tutorial you know. I am also eager to make those hexapods and robots.  Regards Jack

Secret Resource: Waterproofing!

Everywhere I look, people are throwing out umbrellas. I've started scavenging the skins and (in rainy England) sewing them onto *everything*. It's great. There are tons of umbrellas that break, etc. and are thrown out every day. You can sew them together to make a big tarp, make a cover for your bag/laptop, etc. Wonderful!

Build Night Resources

BUILD NIGHT OVERVIEW Instructables sponsors monthly build nights at makerspaces (and hackerspaces, fab labs, student groups, libraries, etc...) around the world. Each month we partner with a different company to send materials and/or tools to run a workshop at your space. In return your space posts Instructables from your build night. If you are interested in being directly notified about future build nights fill out this form. You will receive e-mails when new events are announced in the forums. IMPROVE INSTRUCTABLES + FIRST TIME AUTHORS: Naturally with such a large participation in the build nights (2000 people globally for sugru) there will be some first time authors. Here is some important information to share with your community before (or during) your build night. How to Use the New Editor: this is a handy guide to help you get the hang of the new editor. How to Choose a Title and Keywords for your Instructable: learn how to pick a great title that will give your project as many views as possible. You don't need to include the sponsors name in the title of your project, but I'd recommend including it somewhere in the first step. Feature Checklist: this is the checklist we use to decide if an Instructable should be featured on our homepage. It is a great resource for writing high quality Instructables. How to Take Great Photos with your iPhone: these are some great tips for photography with an iPhone. Basic Photo Editing: improve your images with a few simple tips. It is especially important to have a great main image to improve the quality of your projects. English as a Second Language: If english is your second language check out this series of forums. We encourage people to post Instructables in their native language. If you would like to post in both English and your native language you can use a translator. Author Rimar2000 is a great example of this. MOTIVATING MEMBERS TO POST INSTRUCTABLES: The most common question/issue that came up was how to motivate build night participants to post Instructables and take photos during the build night. I came up with a few tips and solutions. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this and if you have any other ideas on how to encourage your members to post projects during their build. Planning ahead of time. Take suggestions from your community on what projects you can make at the build night. This will focus the workshop and motivate people to actually execute on projects. Post projects ahead of time: For spaces that are expecting more beginner/intermediate participants (especially young students) organizers will post Instructables before the event for participants to follow during the event. Demonstrations at the beginning. Have a short 20-30 minute demo at the beginning of the event and use the rest of the time to make projects. Breaking into groups. Split the attendees into groups pairing beginners with experts. Each group can work on a different project. This is especially important for more advanced build nights that have electronics. Designate a documenter. Have a designated ‘documenter’ for each group. They will be in charge of taking pictures during the project build. If someone has an iPhone or Android they can download the Instructables app for free and upload their photos from their phone directly to the website. PUBLICITY: One of my goals with the build nights is to get publicity for makerspaces and individual makers. Here are some ways we’re working to promote y’all! Homepage Promotion: get pictures of your makerspace on the homepage of Insructables. Take excellent pictures from your build night and we just might feature it on our homepage. Your space must also have a group page that we can link back to (see below). Tweet at us: tweet to your followers that you are hosting a build night and we will re-tweet you! We will also encourage our sponsor to re-tweet you as well!! GROUPS: I’m working to get a group page for every makerspace on Instructables. Check out all of the makerspaces with groups (here). The requirements to get a group for your space: You must have 5-10 Instructables published by members of your makerspace before we build you a group. It doesn’t matter if they were published 5 years ago or yesterday. You must agree to post projects on a regular basis. This is just to confirm that the group doesn’t go dead. 1-2 projects every 1-2 months will do! If you are participating in the build nights this should be easy. Contact me at carley@instructables.com if you think your makerspace is ready for a group. EARN A FREE PRO-MEMBERSHIP: everyone that publishes an Instructable will receive a 3-month pro-membership. SUPPORTING MAKERSPACES: Build nights were the result of a conversation I had with Josh from All Hands Active. He was looking for ways to get new people to his space and create new events. What other ways can we help achieve your spaces goals? Here are some suggestions from the hangout. Please let us know if you have more ideas! Live Stream Build Nights - spaces that are hosting google hangouts on the same day could connect via google hangout. Live Instructions: host a series of “how to” google hangouts where we teach you basic skills like soldering, basic electronics, etc...

Controlling HDMI or vga monitor

I'm working on a project that I need a monitor to display information for a predetermined amount of time then turn off (Im will not be using the Raspberry Pi for this). In a days time I may want the monitor ON/OFF twice or several times. I've got experience with using relays, and was thinking of breaking the 110v to achieve it, however not sure if I would be shorting the life of the monitor by doing this. Would it be more practical to break the incoming HDMI cable with some particular pinouts( like the video or signal or 5v? with a relay or two) and keep the monitor turned on 24/7? Thanks! FYI. This monitor will NOT be connected to a PC, it will only be displaying my outside cameras when activated.

Microbial instructable on the cheap

I'm interested in this instructable on isolating plastic degrading bacteria but the author doesn't appear to be active at the moment.I have no experience in this area. Any ideas on if/how could perform a valid experiment on the cheap? The only two prohibitively expensive items seem to be an autoclave (I'm assuming I could use a microwave or pressure cooker) and the Hass Broth: The solution used to feed the bacteria containing all their required elements except carbon, which they get from the plastic.Would it still be a viable experiment if I gave the microbes a banana peel or something and hope they're still hungry for plastic? Also can I get away with using a cheap milligram scale?I know this isn't a typical type of question but any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

One-Stop Shop for Makers

Hi Everyone,  I'm Sarah Calvillo, a visual artist and interactive designer based in San Francisco. I created Steampunk Mr. Potato Head on instructables a while back.  I recently built the first one-stop shop for makers in the U.S. to find and book affordable studio time. Growing up, I've watched my father build our house from his personal workshop. Living in the city, I've found there is limited space to build my own projects. I wanted to create a platform where you could rent space and resources from your community. Funding this project was a major challenge, so I resorted to bartering design for development services with a friend to build Concourse. It took us a couple months to build and launch the site. My only advice for someone replicating this project like this is not to fear being scrappy or hacky. Build what you can, then iterate on what you've built. As a one-woman operation, I’ve been focusing my efforts on helping the Bay Area to start. However, Concourse is open for anyone anywhere to use. You can either rent out your workshop or rent someone else. Visit us Concourse.co.  Hope I can help you continue making a create cool stuff on Instructables. DM me for more information about Concourse. Alright ladies and gents, take good care and thanks for your time. All the best, Sarah

Ideal Energy/Battery Source for a Battery Powered Lamppost

Hello everyone,First time posting, so, thank you ahead of time for all your help!Project:I was tasked with creating an outdoor lamppost for an event at a campground (IE: no immediate electricity source). At first, it seemed quite simple, but, looking at the necessary requirements, it seems to be more complex than I thought. Requirements:I need to find a way to power a high-powered LED light bulb (ideally 12W equivalent) for 10 hours a day (for 3-4 nights - for a total of 30-40 hours) without immediate access to an electrical outlet. So, it would be around 20 watt hours a day. This battery source needs to be able to be outdoors, and face rain/weather. There may be a tarp, tent to cover it. I may have access to a generator to recharge my battery source at another location if need be.I currently have a bright DC 12V light bulb that would be ideal for this project, but, I could also use a AC light bulb if need be.Potential Solutions: Connected 6V Lantern Batteries: Connecting multiple lantern batteries together, and swapping them out on a daily basis. Walmart has a set of Rayovac Heavy-Duty Lantern Batteries for around $2.50 each. Pro: Connecting these batteries in parallel and series would give me the 20 ah, and 12v specs needed. \ It would come out to around $15 a day. Would be easy to put in a large water-proof container and connect to the lamppostCons: Bit wasteful - I'd burn through around 20 of these batteries, and would have to recycle/dispose of them Sealed? - Unsure if I could put them in a waterproof container. Do they need venting? Mid-range cost: Would come out to around $50-60 due to the number of batteries needed12V Deep-Cycle 20Ah+ Battery: A simple 20ah+ deep-cycle battery would provide me the DC power needed on a daily basis. I would then detach it during the day, and bring it to the generator to charge. Pro: Cost - Relatively cheap, at around $50, this battery option would be affordable Set it and Forget It - No need to connect multiple batteries together. This would just be an easy wiring job.Con: Venting - Unsure if I could place this in a simple waterproof container outside. Does it need to vent? Or, would a AGM deep-cycle battery be ok in a vent-free container? Recharging - Unlike the lantern batteries, I would need to bring this to a generator on a daily basis to recharge. Not the end of the world though.Ideas:I am vacillating between both options. Ideally I would like to go with the deep-cycle battery, but I am quite concerned with the venting problem. I don't believe the 6V batteries need to vent, so they could be placed in a simple container.Question(s): Does one of these solutions stand out more to you as the better fit? Are there other battery solutions that you think would work better? Do I need to use a deep-cycle battery, or would something like this battery work?Again, thank you ahead of time for any guidance you could provide!

Detroit-area resources, stores, etc

Hello, fellow Michiganders! *points to palm*I recently learned about Silicon Alley Recyclers, a Warren (10 and Ryan) outfit that takes cast-off computers and stuff (mostly from corporate environments), refurbs the machines, and sells them (cheap). I've taken the opportunity to unload some of my old boat-anchors, and I've picked up some neat hardware too. Are there other similar outfits in the area?A fun place for supplies is Arts and Scraps in Ann Arbor, which carries all sorts of industrial offcuts, recycled whatsits, and nifty thingamabobs. I don't know how else to describe it. I had a few bushels of cellphone parts to get rid of, and A&S; took the keypads and cases off my hands eagerly. (They wouldn't take the PCBs, which I still need to dispose of.)Cranbrook's art school has a directory of metal suppliers in the area, and I've personally been getting stuff from Metal Mart at 13 and Dequindre in Warren, right around the corner. They're cool with small orders, and very laid-back about shopping. After saying hi, they'll generally just ask you to go back and browse until you find what you want. There's a nice rack of scraps and pieces up near the front, which usually has all I need.For electronics parts, ever since K40 on Van Dyke and Michigan Radio (the store, not the broadcasting service) closed I've been going to Abel Electronics in St Clair Shores, and once in a while I'll hit up RS Electronics in Livonia. I need to stop in at Galco Industrial Electronics one of these days, since they're also right around the corner. There's a new Grainger in Madison Heights on Whitcomb (13 1/2 mile) but I've never been in there.Okay, that's my braindump for now. If you know more suppliers, please reply to this post, otherwise start a new thread so this one stays on-topic and info-dense.
