How to make a own 5 X AA battery holder?

Hi guys, I have tried looking around to buy a 5 x AA battery holder but unable to find one. As such, how can I make my own 5 X AA battery holder? I have a 4 x AA holder and a 2 x AA holder.. Is there any way to combine this two and make it a 5 x AA holder? Or can I use a 6 x AA holder and modify it to a 5 x AA holder? Thanks for your inputs.

Fake X-RAY Exhibit

Hello all I wanted to know if anyone has an idea about cameras that have an X-RAY application. I am building a kids hospital for a museum and we want a play X-RAY machine. I thought that there may be a camera with an app that you can take a picture of someones hand, leg, face ect. and then it would alter the photo to look like a bone visible photo. Any ideas? Thanks

X-Ray your finger with stickytape!

Scientists have discovered the cheapest source of potentially-useful X-rays.Peeling sticky tape emits X-rays strong enough to scan a human finger, a remarkable experiment has shown.US researchers used a motorised peeling machine to unwind a roll of Scotch tape at a rate of 3cm per second.By placing their apparatus in a vacuum, they measured X-rays strong enough to X-ray a human digit, according to a report in Nature journal.It is well known that unwinding sticky tape produces sparks of light that can be seen in the dark by the naked eye.This phenomenon, known as "triboluminescence", is produced by the friction generated when two surfaces rub against each other.The study, by Carlos Camara and Juan Escobar, of the University of California, Los Angeles, USA, provides evidence for the phenomenon, which was first observed more than 50 years ago.

X-ray Lamps, the perfect light for any radiation loving geeks!

Well, who here doesn't think that x-rays look cool? I personally digg them.So check out these cool designer x-ray lamps! Engadget informs us that, Unfortunately, these lampshade / lights aren't yet available to purchase -- another dream dashed by cruel reality.I however say we will not miss out! so, i think if someone was to get a picture of a bulb, put it through photoshop to make it look like an x-ray, print it out on some paper, stick inside a custom light enclosure, and there you go. A fancy x-ray light.

What kind of power supply for this LED array?

Hi, My grow light failed on me recently.

Real-Life X-Wing Set to Fly

No, really.Andy Woerner and his crazy rocketeer friends have built a 21-foot long X-Wing model that can actually fly. Yes, this is a real X-Wing powered by four solid-fuel rocket engines complete with radio-controlled moving wings. It blasts off in California next week, and we talked with Andy about the project, and how they expect it will do. The X-Wing model is huge. At 21 feet long and with a wingspan of over 19 feet it is, in fact, big enough to fly a kid in. However, knowing that it will be powered by solid-fuel rockets, they wouldn't put a kid, dog, monkey or Gizmodo editor inside, even if it uses three full parachutes to land.After drawing the plans using CAD software, Andy's team and his friends at Polecat Aerospace (with the help of RMS Laser and Aerotech Consumer Aerospace) used laser cutting to make the pieces out of Baltic Birch wood. They also used solid aluminum for some parts, like the rods which are the pivot point for the wings. full story with more pics

My Project For The New Year

I think I've found a nice big project to undertake for 2009. I want to build a homebrew X-ray machine. I've done a little bit of research and found that United Nuclear sells X-ray tubes along with radiation safety equipment. I think I could make the other components needed (high voltage supply) by myself. Does anyone have any ideas or thoughts on this project?

newbie - how does a qaudcopter work?

Hey there, I am thinking of building a quad copter, but am not quite sure, how they work, hopefully someone can clarify this for me.  Do all the motors connected run at the same speed, then  to move directions you increase the speed of the motor that deals with that direction. For example left control button will increase the speed for the left motor causing it to move left? Also will I be able to get a working prototype using those components below? 4 x 7mm Brushed Motors 4 x propellers. 1 x Arduin UNO  1 x HC-05 Arduino bluetooth module Am planning on dealing with the controls by writing a android app that sends command to the Bluetooth module on the arduino.

Li-ion 5 pin, pinout?

Good Day Fellow TinkerersI have a battery that came out of a Android Tablet that i want to use for another project.It has a cuircuit board attache to the top which i would assume is a over/under charge protector and it has 5 wires coming off of that. 2 x Red, 1 x White and 2 x Black.The two black wires are connected to the same pad on the "protection circuit" and the two red are connected to the same pad. The white wire is on a separate pad i.e. 3 pads, 1 with 2x red, 1 with 2 x black and 1 with 1 x white.I figure the Red would be positive and the Black negative and then i would assume that the white is the Thermistor connection.My Question :How do i connect this externally from the tablet to charge? I figure red and black are the usual, but how do i connect the white wire?Thanks in advance for any help :)

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.

Home-X does Mouse Taxidermy

James Powderley's Home-X class had a mouse taxidermy session using my taxidermy Instructables. They made some great mice! Pictures here and here and here. They also learned to knit, solder, and do some chemistry; textbooks include the Cartoon Guides to Chemistry and Physics. Doesn't this sound like awesome fun? Check out the course description:Welcome to the Disruptive Home Economics class at Parsons New School for Design. To the initiated, the class is called Home X. The goal of this class is to expand our ability to make things at home, whether for entertainment, expression or survival. Home X will take us all through the center and to the fringe of what it means to make-it and do-it-yourself. We will start by making or modifying existing DIY and How-to projects and studying the way other makers solve problems and create documentation. Over the course of the semester, we will get hands-on experience researching, designing, documenting and sharing our own DIY projects. We will take a generalist's approach and gain experience with a wide range of mechanical, electrical, computational and chemical processes. We will combine novel tools and materials with common ones and build projects for ourselves as well as tools for others. Along the way, we will also look at the way cultural and historical contexts influence the technologies we make and use, as well as the implications of open source production by the masses. Students will be encouraged to release their work as openly and widely as possible and to experiment with traditional and contagious distribution of their projects.More info hereAs they say in Home-X: D.I.Y till you R.I.P.

any way to reuse large plastic posters ?

Today was here a day of elections to city heads the day is over and the streets are full of posters up to 1 X 3 M size that are going to go to trash in the following days most of the posters are made of 3 kinds of plastic simple plastic like large shopping bags - it is waterproof and strechy and loses mechanical strength when stretched. available in size of 0.5 M X up to few M weave of flat nylon strings - not fully waterproof but very strong. available in size of up to 1 X 3 M. with holes reinforced with metal thingy in 4 corners plastic reinforced with nylon fiber - combines properties of them both. available in size of 0.8 X 1.4 M. with factory-made folded and sewd edges for installation on rope etc all are made of white material printed on one side with names / photos / slogans etc in semitransparent paint. passes some amount of diffused sunlight there are also tons of flyers and paper posters (up to 0.5 X 0.7 M) and the tickets used for voting laying all over the streets any good ideas what that stuff can be usefull for ? especially the plastic and nylon posters

How about a teeny tiny power supply??

I've seen some pretty good power supply projects on here. Here's a challenge: Make a 5 to 12 volt power supply that can fit into a 1 cubic inch space, of any dimensions, i.e. 1"x 1" x 1" or 1/2" x 2" x 1", etc, including any enclosure. It must put out at least 300ma sustained and must have a fairly smooth voltage regulation for use with other electronics (of course). It must have clear schematics without the use of special programs to view, i.e. it shouldn't be in an eagle format or rather can be viewed with paint, or any of the other picture viewers. It must be powered from the mains and NOT use a microcontroller or any custom chips. The smaller it is, the better, and less than 1 cubic inch is excellent. I've seen real genius on here. Is this genius ready to try this?
