Miscategorized Wanted/Free posts

I understand that people want to ask for things, and want maximum exposure of their request but, to the best of my knowledge, that's what the Wanted category is for. The free category is for things you are giving away, not things you're asking for. The forum is all messy with Free Pro Membership Giveaways, and Wanted posts, and it's difficult to sift through to see any actual posts for free items. Is there a way we can better avoid this, or be more strenuous about enforcing or self-enforcing this? Thanks! Sorry, not tryin' to be a jerk, but if you can put any kind of post in the free section, it shouldn't be a separate section, ya know? -Mike

Wanted a tutor or resources to learn electronics in an easy way

Hi, i'm an IT student but i'm very much interested in electronics and robotics, but i cant find a good source which can teach why to use the components, how to use them and where to use them, in a easy way. I searched lots of web sites but dont know which one to choose. I prefer video tutorials, so i learnt many things through youtube. Now I know little bit about basic electronics (self learn, so I may have left some topics). If there is any resource to teach in correct way, please inform me. Thank you.

remote controlled led project

Hello there, I am looking for someone who can make me a simple led project for a costume. What it would consist of is 2 groups of leds that can both be switched on by remote control. They would need to strobe simultaneously and also alternate between either group. I am not looking to spend alot on this as i think it should be easy for someone who knows what they are doing, but i will compensate you accordingly. I can give you more information on what i am looking for if you are interested.  Thanks for your time and i hope to hear from someone soon, thanks

Neon sign transformer

Hello everybody, I am looking for a Neon Sign Transformer (NST), I can not find any in my local area and cannot use ebay because I am 15 years old. So if anybody has an old used NST that you don't want anymore and willing to give it away or can obtain a NST for free from your local dump or neon sign stores, I would really want it! I will pay the postage bill. If you are curious why I wanted a NST, I want to build a Tesla Coil, I had built other Tesla Coils using other power supplies but I always have bad luck with them, they don't work properly so that is why I wanted a NST.I really don't mind how much voltage the NST gives out, like between 6Kv to 15Kv, but I do mind how much current it gives out, I only want a transformer that can give give out current between 20mA to 40mA, because of this, I don't want to build a big Tesla Coil yet...So, if you have a NST that you are willing to give away, please respond to me ONLY if you live in UK (United Kingdom), because I cannot afford such high postage (shipping) bill from other countries like America..

Boston area Hackers wanted

Via sugru on facebook A production company based in Boston is developing a documentary style project focused on hackery. Basically, they want some mischievous mad scientists with hearts of gold to take their textbook knowledge and apply it in totally bizarre ways to all kinds of everyday materials. Visual spectacles; cool, geeky gadgets, your most crazy and elaborate projects - you get the picture! If you or anyone you know is interested, email casting@powderhouse.net by Feb. 18th (Thats TODAY) with a brief bio, pictures of yourself, and details of any projects you have pulled off in the past. Boston area is probably preferred, but who knows: for a good enough hack, their may be be a travel budget.

Arduino Coder Needed - Will Pay

Hello,      I am in serious need of some help with code for a Arduino Uno project! This would not be for free of course. Just let me know what would be fair. So if your in the mood to help a dummy out, drop me a line! Here's some background on the project The project is a prop for a Halloween haunted house/escape room. The idea is for 4 RFID readers to detect 4 objects (Maybe optical sensors are better here for triggering the audio?not sure). Once all 4 objects are placed on top of each reader, the adafruit Wave Shield produces a telephone ring sound effect (I will be providing the sound .wav files to the adafruit SD card). I would also need to have a the ability to push a button to stop the ringing and skip to the next audio file on the SD card of the Adafruit wave shield. Hope that all made sense :). Below are links to all the pieces of hardware I am using: 1. Arduino Uno - I think you know what this is 2. 4 x RC522 RFID Readers  - http://www.robotshop.com/en/mifare-rc522-module-rfid-reader.html?gclid=CK7tv9qO384CFYGEaQodg8sGkA 3. Adafruit Wave Shield - https://www.adafruit.com/product/94 4. Maybe Photoresistors for triggering instead - https://www.adafruit.com/product/161

Video Game Idea

I have an idea for a video game which allows an opportunity  for the players to make money. The problem is that I do not know how to go about it. It would be a space flight\fighter were the players will be able to purchase spacecraft with the ability to customize them to their desire. Then dogfight against other players for cash rewards which they can use for upgrades or new ships. A leveling structure will be needed to allow for players to go against similarly skilled players. First, I would like to know if you would be interested in a game like this, Second, I am looking for people who would able to program, design ships and maps, etc. to get this going. Experience with Unity 3d would be best.
