### Fun with a Y connector

So I got one of my friends to come over, and we played with knex. He decided to have fun with a Y connector and pretended it was a nose and lip piercing. I thought it was funny, and took pictures, then I decided to post it.

### Programming Atmega8 using arduino troubleshooting

I am making a POV (persistance of vision) project using atmega8 ,which is being programmed by arduino (uno) as ISP i am following this tutorial videos and blink led code is working well   for me as in the video, I tired the same code by changing the delay for verifying whether the circuit works properly  and i was working nice But i uploaded my persistance of vision code(POV) its no working   none of the leds is blinking I using the correct pin i verified it with arduino uno atmega8 pin mapping Here is my Persistance of vision code int _[] = {0,0,0,0,0, 0,0,0,0,0, 0,0,0,0,0}; int A[] = {0,1,1,1,1, 1,0,1,0,0, 0,1,1,1,1}; int B[] = {1,1,1,1,1, 1,0,1,0,1, 0,1,0,1,0}; int C[] = {0,1,1,1,0, 1,0,0,0,1, 1,0,0,0,1}; int D[] = {1,1,1,1,1, 1,0,0,0,1, 0,1,1,1,0}; int E[] = {1,1,1,1,1, 1,0,1,0,1, 1,0,1,0,1}; int F[] = {1,1,1,1,1, 1,0,1,0,0, 1,0,1,0,0}; int G[] = {0,1,1,1,0, 1,0,1,0,1, 0,0,1,1,0}; int H[] = {1,1,1,1,1, 0,0,1,0,0, 1,1,1,1,1}; int I[] = {0,0,0,0,1, 1,0,1,1,1, 0,0,0,0,1}; int J[] = {1,0,0,0,0, 1,0,0,0,1, 1,1,1,1,1}; int K[] = {1,1,1,1,1, 0,0,1,0,0, 0,1,0,1,1}; int L[] = {1,1,1,1,1, 0,0,0,0,1, 0,0,0,0,1}; int M[] = {1,1,1,1,1, 0,1,1,0,0, 0,1,1,1,1}; int N[] = {1,1,1,1,1, 1,0,0,0,0, 0,1,1,1,1}; int O[] = {0,1,1,1,0, 1,0,0,0,1, 0,1,1,1,0}; int P[] = {1,1,1,1,1, 1,0,1,0,0, 0,1,0,0,0}; int Q[] = {0,1,1,1,1, 1,0,0,1,1, 0,1,1,1,1}; int R[] = {1,1,1,1,1, 1,0,1,0,0, 0,1,0,1,1}; int S[] = {0,1,0,0,1, 1,0,1,0,1, 1,0,0,1,0}; int T[] = {1,0,0,0,0, 1,1,1,1,1, 1,0,0,0,0}; int U[] = {1,1,1,1,1, 0,0,0,0,1, 1,1,1,1,1}; int V[] = {1,1,1,1,0, 0,0,0,0,1, 1,1,1,1,0}; int W[] = {1,1,1,1,0, 0,0,1,1,0, 1,1,1,1,0}; int X[] = {1,1,0,1,1, 0,0,1,0,0, 1,1,0,1,1}; int Y[] = {1,1,0,0,0, 0,0,1,0,0, 1,1,1,1,1}; int Z[] = {1,0,0,1,1, 1,0,1,0,1, 1,1,0,0,1}; int letterSpace; int dotTime; void setup() {   // setting the ports of the leds to OUTPUT   pinMode(2, OUTPUT);   pinMode(3, OUTPUT);   pinMode(4, OUTPUT);   pinMode(5, OUTPUT);   pinMode(6, OUTPUT);   // defining the space between the letters (ms)   letterSpace = 6;   // defining the time dots appear (ms)   dotTime = 3; } void printLetter(int letter[]) {   int y;   // printing the first y row of the letter   for (y=0; y<5; y++)   {     digitalWrite(y+2, letter[y]);   }   delay(dotTime);   // printing the second y row of the letter   for (y=0; y<5; y++)   {     digitalWrite(y+2, letter[y+5]);   }   delay(dotTime);   // printing the third y row of the letter   for (y=0; y<5; y++)   {     digitalWrite(y+2, letter[y+10]);   }   delay(dotTime);   // printing the sspace between the letters   for (y=0; y<5; y++)   {     digitalWrite(y+2, 0);   }   delay(letterSpace); } void loop() {   // you can print your own text by modifing here :) printLetter(H); printLetter(E); printLetter(L); printLetter(L); printLetter(O); printLetter(_);   } Is there any solution ???

### Hardening a Knife?

I have this really cheap-y bowie knife I bought on a whim that I hadn't really used before now.  At first I was all happy because I had a giant bowie knife to swing at trees, but then I started to realize just how cheap-y it is: with a hard swing and something(dead tree, for example) the blade tends to bend a little..just wondering, is there any way to harden steel that would be plausible for this knife?  The blade needs work anyway so if I can harden the steel I'll just add that to the list of things....I mean I can deal with a cheap-y handle and a cheap-y guard but a cheap-y blade is kind of a problem...

### Arduino Spanish miniCommunity!

Hola a tod@s! Hace mucho que rondo por aqui y ando terminando el que sera mi primer Instructable. Practicamente la totalidad de lo que hay aqui esta en ingles, y con mas o menos dificultad todos andamos por aqui. Mi intencion es conocer a algunos de vosotros con los que comparta idioma y aficiones. Seria como un pequeño rincon donde preguntarnos y ayudarnos con nuestros experimentos jeje. Ppr mi parte, no soy especialmente habil con las manos, pero me defiendo. Mis conocimientos de electronica son lo que aprendi en BUP y COU en su dia, lo basico...muy basico. Donde me defiendo un poco mas es con la programacion. Hace años que practico, aunque no soy demasiado constante y ademas autodidacta. Ademas, me defiendo perfectamente con el ingles, por lo que no supone un problema para mi y podria ser de ayuda para alguno si se diera el caso. Bueno, pues lo dicho, chico busca chic@s a los que preguntar cositas y a los que sera un placer ayudar con lo que se pueda. Un saludo!

### 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.

### Air Compressor/Vacuum Pump

I have a theory: You have your supply of compressed air. You connect that by hose to one branch of a y-connector. The other branch is connected to a hose that goes into some sort of fluid that you want to move from one vessel to another. The trunk of the y is your exhaust (in theory). So now I give, say, 15 psi out of my air supply and that shoud drag my fluid out of its vessel through the y connector to the destination of my choosing. Would that work?

Hi guys! I've read quite a lot of threads on this, but could not find anything related to my problem. I need some help with fixing my headphones. I've managed to break them exactly on the Y part where Left and Right headphones connect to the main cable. I want to solder them however not sure how to connect separate cables... I have a small schema here: http://i58.tinypic.com/24vnptf.png Please note the Copper(orange) and the Blue(Blue) are together: blue is in plastic? coating with wrapped copper around but its two separate wires. Also, the magenta/violet on the diagram represents a white wire, All of the other cables except blue were coated in enamel?. The headphones have a built-in microphone with a button and its sony mdrzx610 model. I really hope there's someone to help me out I need my sounds back!

Some use Z to go up and down, others mentioned it being the Y-axis, even saw a few saying X. Is it up to the builder or up to the software? Kind regards, Red

### Need some help with repurposing Christmas lights

Greetings everybody! I've been lurking around instructables for maaaaany years, but have never been a dedicated maker. On to the point. I made a "bedside lamp" so to speak. It's an olive branch, around which I put a row of christmas lights. They're the simple kind, white with a clicky green controller and about 10 different settings. The setting is remembered until the lights are unplugged, after which they reset. I'd like to keep them on at all times with just an on-off switch, because a twinkling bedside lamp is not of much use. My stepfather told me he'd help (he's an electrician) but we have no clue how the thing actually works (so we can take it apart and just keep the simple on-off cords. The setup is as follows: =)--------------(regular 2 cord electric current cable)----------[    *    ]----(5 cables)-----Y---Y---Y---Y Plug------------------------------------------------------------Single Button Controller---------Lights I've followed the cables as well as I could (I've already taped them around the branch at several spots) and lamps connect to different cables. How could I remove the "program" altogether and just make them work with a simple switch?

### USB Y Split for power

I've just got a simple question, which I was surprised to not find anywhere. A long time ago, I had a portable drive which had a single usb cable to two ends. One end had data + power, and the other end had just power. This was to supply more than 5v to the drive. I want to recreate this, do I need to do anything except splice another cable (with just the power + ground) into the one I have? Do I need to put anything in between them? Thanks, Ivan

### What are some good primary weapons, side arms, and grenades that use few special pieces?

What are some good primary weapons, side arms, and grenades that use few special pieces? I know there are many guns that I want to build, but I have to stop in the middle and I realize I waste over an hour (or more) building a gun I can't finish or use. Almost always it is for the same reason...I don't have many special pieces. By special pieces I mean: Y-connectors, Hinges, Bendy Rods, Ball Sockets, etc. I only have 6 Y-connectors, and thats the most amount of special pieces I own. I really would like it if some people could post links to guns that I could build over spring break. When you post it, could you please tell me these things (if you can that is!): The name of the gun, whether it is a pistol, rifle, sniper, grenade, etc, If it has any special pieces (It can have 6 Y-connectors at the most I don't have any other specials), what you would rate it on a scale of 1-10, or anything else you want to include to help me decide which one to build. Again any help or guns would be greatly appreciated, and would help a beginner k'nex gunner get more building experience!

### X-Y stage for film scanner

I'm building a film scanner using a dlsr. Here's a picture of the rig so far: Basically there's a light source, negative stage, negative holder, camera support stage, camera and lens.  I put a negative in the negative holder and slide it using a guide such that I can take a bunch of pictures of the negative at 1:1.  For example, it takes 25 pictures to cover a 6x7cm negative.  The individual files are then combined into one file using stitching software.  The system works very well, but it's a bit tedious.  I'd like to automate the negative movement using a diy motorized xy stage.  Many of the designs I've seen are for much bigger units, such as for a cnc machine, or units that require speedy movement.  That's not the case here.  Each movement would be only 10-20mm. I'm fairly handy, and I can follow directions/recipes well, but I haven't worked with arduinos or stepper motors before.  Any advice or suggestions on a good way to accomplish my goal would be very welcome!

### Customizable Dragonfly Assault Crossbow: Review

Here is the review for the Customizable Dragonfly Assault Crossbow by Wicky.I used the y-bow for the review, the same one in the picture.What to expect: Innovation: 9/10 I think shaping the bow in a y form was innovative and added more power with a shorter arm.Strength: 7/10 the arm is kind of weak. But the overall thing is good.Range: 9/10 shot very far and is powerful but not that accurate. It broke a red connector and two gray clipsLooks: 8/10 has a unique look but I like it.Parts: 8/10 fairly low on parts but uses more whites than most have.Handle: 7/10 not that comfortable but again uniqueStock: 9/10 nice and sturdy. I like it.Barrel: 8/10 the barrel is kind of flimsy but okay.At the end: I would give the gun 9/10.Here is the link to the gun. https://www.instructables.com/id/DragonflY-Assault-Crossbow/Thanks for reading.

The result of boredom. Numbers layer tells you what each dot is labeled. The x-y layers represent the paths. X is the first dot, y is the one you move to after that. Just make the layers visible. I didn't bother making any long diagonals because I didn't feel like it and they're hard to use anyways. I find it useful to load a jpg on my miniSD so if I forget, I can go back and see what it was before I unlocked it. (I know it's overdone, but if I'm going to be using it all the time, I might as well make it pretty)

Here's an example tweet: #ledtable 0,3,red; 1,2,green; 4,4,#FD2245; #ledtable - lets the table get the message. X,Y,color; - X and Y are coordinates from 0 to 8 and the color is what color you want it to be. You can use a name or a hex code Be sure to end each color with a semicolon.

### Racing Game Physics

I've been designing a physics engine for a racing game for a long time now (months? years?) and I think that I've finally got almost everything figured out. The one thing that I don't know about is traction. So far my best guess for a formula is T = X + (Y * S)Where T is the stabilizing force on the car, S is the amount of slippage, and X and Y are two of the car's stats (probably measured in G's). This formula would be applied to each tire separately to account for the suspension.NOTE: The thing that might not be obvious here is that the car doesn't slip at all as long as X isn't exceeded.What do you think of this?

### Dalek Cake

This Dalek cake by Stacked Cakes in Australia is deliciously epic. It is 22" tall and weighs over 40 pounds. That's a lot of Dalek-y goodness right there. Check out the link for more pics of the cake and the build process. Daleks and Birthdays via CRAFT

### 1Âª Build Night por Sugru en The InventorÂ´s House (Mexico)

El pasado jueves 18 de Julio se llevo acabo la primera Build Nigth en The Inventor´s House patrocinada por Instructables y Sugru Una noche en la que a pesar de la lluvia que cayo en la ciudad hubo varios participantes que dejaron volar su imaginación y crearon cosas geniales. El evento comenzó a las 20:30 debido a la lluvia, se les entrego a todos los participantes un sobre de sugru, varios venían preparados con material extra como cautín, partes de fuentes de computadora, plugs de audifonos, controles de playstation, madera entre otras cosas para hacer sus creaciones. El evento estuvo genial incluso contamos con la presencia varios niños todo en un ambiente colaborativo y de creatividad. Estos son algunos de los inventos realizados en esta Build Night te mostramos el video y la liga al instructable.
