NeoPixel Desk - I ordered 4m of NeoPixel strip a while back. I decided to finally attach it to my desk. Setup is pretty simple, ill eventually make it do cool things. The NeoPixel Uberguide has everything covered.
Project Dyson v2 - Time to revisit this project, the last one failed when the stock impeller melted solid due to the speed of the brushless motor I had attached. This time around I will be mounting an EDF inside the housing, and blowing right out the back it. With
Time for me to start making stuff again… It has been FAAARRRR too long. I whipped this together at lunch time today, simple 3 channel PWM using TIP142s. It is driving a 30W RGB LED at 30V, and at peak it runs around 1.8A of draw.
30W RGB Led Test - Before I pack all this up tomorrow I decided to test out one of the 30W RGB LEDs I got to do accent lighting for my new office. It is powered by 3 individual drivers that accept PWM input to drive the output. Each LED
Packing my components for our upcoming move! It’s nice to be a little organized for once…
30W RGB LED. A few weeks ago i ordered 4 30W RGB LEDS and drivers. They arrived today, and they are HUGE! Here is a size comparison against a Pinoccio Scout and my business card.
Project Hexa - Dual channel RGB LED strip flight+battery status module.
This is an arduino pro mini 16mhz with 6 PWM outputs coupled to an ULM2803 8 channel darlington array. This will power 2x 3 LED strips for each of the arms of the hexacopter. The channels will be
As I am sitting here in the hotel room with my wife and kid asleep, I start to ponder a tactile sequencer/music device. A few months ago we went to Wisconsin and there was a kids museum thing that we went to. It had a spaceship that kids could
Project Dyson - Assembled test. I finally have the fan assembly together and fairly well balanced.
