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
I'm piling a bunch of components onto my CI20 because I can
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?
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.
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.
Im pulling images from deviantarts rss api atm its easy to just change picture category, so yeah probably gonna do that.
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.
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.
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.
Post pics of your non-functional bullcrap.
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.
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
>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.
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.
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.
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.
