What projects do you have going on in the background brothers? I'm planning on making a coffee maker of a booze brewing machine. My new breadboard just got here today so I'm testing it out. And yes it's being powered via a phones USB port because why not
>>
>>52413630
Currently in a SolidWorks course, our main objective for this week is make a product
>>
>>52413630
I'm piling a bunch of components onto my CI20 because I can
A
fter I build my server I'll be using a microcontroller running RetroBSD and some old military hardware for an atomic clock, think I'll be able to add an ESP8266 and use it as an rdate server?
>>
>>52413630
I ordered funduino kit + sensors and 2 servos
First Im thinking in making color sorting machine, for legos or whatever else.
And when I getinto it I will do some simple pathfinding robot.

Thing is I have C# and JavaScript experience in programming so I wonder how well/fast I will learn this new stuff
>>
>>52413768
>funduino
funduino is arduino based and has its own dialect which is very easy to use so it'll be a breeze.
>>
>>52413855
Well, how about learning from arduino projects, are they compatible ?
>>
>>52413875
Fully.
>>
>>52413892
>>52413855
Thanks man, I am really exited, its going to be long 2 weeks before it arrives
>>
I'm playing around with my pi zero at the moment.
Im trying to get it to play a slideshow of pictures from the internet and simultaneously light an LED strip in the dominat color of the image for extra comfy look.
>>
>>52414311
That sounds pretty neat, do you have any pics?

I'm currently working on babbies' first nixie tube display, but it's been super rewarding, as well as painfully long.
>>
>>52414311
Are you displaying anime images ?
>>
>>52414424
Im pulling images from deviantarts rss api atm its easy to just change picture category, so yeah probably gonna do that.

>>52414419
The LED strip is not working yet. It's annoying, that there is no store in my town anymore where I can just walk in and buy, like 3 MOSFETs a breadboad an some cables. So i have to wait until ebay deliveries come in.
>>
>>52413630
Slowly programming native app replacement of Android apps on my BB10 phones.
>>
I am curious about my cpu and mobo temps during gaming.
So i am writing a background process (in vb.net, easy stuff) that will send it to my rpi, which has a SSD1306 lcs connected over i2c.

Interesting stuff.
>>
>>52414569
how you do that ?
I want to make something similiar, but I dont have any rpi, however I have 3 laptops laying around that i can use.

Whats the program like ?
>>
got a beaglebone and learning how to write drivers and multithreaded programs. no projects in mind but I'm thinking of making a robot or something, idk t︂b︂︂h faⅿ

give me ideas /g/
>>
>>52414666
Creativity isn't some limitless font; get inspiration by enjoying the creativity of others.
But yeah build a little robot to drive around your desk.

>>52414501
Post pics of your non-functional bullcrap.
>>
>>52414666
make self orienting crawler

As I said, no LEDs yet
>>
>>52414419
post pics, I love nixie tubes
>>
>>52414630
Desktop app creates a socket and accepts connections. Once a connection is established from the rpi, it serializes the data through it.

The rpi program is written in python (using ssd1306 lcd library) and connects to the desktop. (all basic tcp/ip)

I might connect a temp sensor to the rpi to display environment temps.
>>
>>52414964
Where are the LED's gonna go? I imagine it will look quite nice.
>>
>>52414987
I'll try to get the project sorted out so I can show them lit up. I don't even have a camera tho so who knows what will happen.
>>
>>52415166
I want them to go behind the screen lighting up the wall behind it
>>
I've done programming on micro controllers such as the MSP430 and I'm about to get a Raspberry Pi, however I'm not sure how to actually program it. How would I go about making an LED flasher using the GPIO pins?
>>
I'm working on building a geiger counter at the moment. The trickiest part is getting 400V from a 9V battery. I want to try with a flyback converter but I haven't found a good transformer yet
>>
>>52416119
linux + python

its not an avr its a computer with lots of IOs
>>
>>52417214
How about winding your own transformer, my dad made a 5V to 240V one.
>>
>>52417361
Getting to it. I bought the wire and the iron cores, if I can get around to it
>>
>>52413630
>it's being powered via a phones USB port because why not

The 'why not' bit would be that if you accidentally short something out while handling that shit, you won't burn out your phones USB circuit. Get a proper power supply man.
>>
I'm fiddling with AVR right now. Unfortunately I2C doesn't work properly when running at 1MHz.
>>
>>52417905
>I2C
Get ready it's going to be a loooong ride. It's going to be a while before you figure out everything and it works.
>>
>>52413630
So what does it do? Blinking the led? It looks like an avr + crystal and a poor led.
Btw, I'm making a 4x4 keypad with an atmega328 + a minimal board for atmega328 and for probably anything compatible with it. I also want to make a temperature sensor with a ESP-12 board for wireless sensing. I got a ds18b20 and a traditional thermistor. I will use both + normal liquid thermometer to check accuracy. I want to reach good accuracy using only the thermistor. I will work on that. These are my projects in the foreseeable future. So... there is stuff to do.
>>
>>52418010
Op here
You should consider using LM35 and the ADC for the temperature sensor
>>
I want to measure battery voltage on AVR, but I'm out of ideas.
It runs on batteries that are attached to a step-down converter, so VCC is always around 3.3V, but batteries start at 4.5V, so I'd like to know when they are near 3.3-3.4V.
>>
>>52418355
How using the ADC to monitor voltage every few minutes? If you want an accurate reading, you could even put the AVR into low power mode and then measure the voltage
>>
>>52418547
But Vbat >= Vcc, and Vcc is the reference voltage. Isn't it possible to measure voltages less or equal to the reference voltage? Or maybe there is another way.
>>
>>52418345
Thanks for the LM35 suggestion, I actually want to do something more primitive. For proper projects LM35 looks good.
I'm especially interested in how well all this shit will work using the ADC. I want to try to properly measure with a simple thermistor. (I got some NTCs from a sample with datasheet. ) Most things will be probably on the software side for that though. As for the ds18b20 I want to fuck around with it because it uses 3 lines aka 1 data line for two-way communication so you need to use proper timings and I want to write that shit from scratch.

Building a computer to draw images using N triangles in realtime so I can hook it up to a webcam.

Also because I want to research the value of crossover in stochastic beam search to see if it actually helps or is just aesthetically pleasing because of its analogues to how genetics works.

Also trying to see if a new useful heuristic I call "lineages" is useful to hill climbing.

But mostly for triangle porn.
>>
>>52418720
Nice triangle tits, good luck with your research.
