Let me explain to you how I built my latest art piece, Kinetic Column.
From an automated mushroom farm to the first NFT in space! Read on to find out what happened at the Jan '22 Miami Hack Week!
Just because Maker Faires, conferences, and summits have been cut down to a minimum doesn't mean you can't continue to expand your circle of like-minded maker friends. Here are a few suggestions for folks that you may want to follow (if you aren't already).
Follow this tutorial to build a Rotating Puzzle room for your Dungeon. This project incorporates parts from the OpenForge2.0 project with a few additional 3D-printed components and SparkFun's Qwiic and MicroMod systems to make a rotating puzzle room that can be activated by placing a magnet on the "secret" tile or remotely using a computer, phone, or tablet.
How I used Qwiic breakouts, the MicroMod system, and Tinkercad to make a joystick-controlled toy crane.
In this follow-up, I’ll show you the (mostly) finished project, talk about what I used, what I learned along the way, and just how much fun it is to have a robot that throws candy bars with unwavering accuracy and consistency.
If you’re a D&D player, you probably see what I did there. If not, read on, brave adventurer!
It seems this Halloween we once again have additional considerations to take into account. I'm focusing on handing out candy to trick-or-treaters while maintaining proper social distancing.
Some people have a hard time getting a good night's sleep in a strange bed, but nobody wants to wake up exhausted when they're on traveling. I decided to see if I could remedy this issue with a few SparkFun parts and a fast 3D print.
How I made a simple linear motion system using MicroMod, Qwiic breakouts, and 3D printed parts.
Use the MicroMod Input and Display Carrier Board, paired with a ESP32 Processor Board, to stay on top of your meetings and email.
In The Princess Bride, Westley explains to Buttercup that the name is the important thing for inspiring the necessary fear. Well, the creepy head doesn’t need any help in that department, but we decided to give it a name anyway.
Nothing says "I love you" on Valentine's Day like a homemade gift. And if that gift happens to be made using 3D-printed parts, addressable LEDs and a phone app you create yourself - everybody wins!
My friend's young son's latest obsession became my latest project, with a salvaged stepper motor, a couple of servos, and a bit of ingenuity.
Individuals and teams of makers are stepping up around the globe to help!
Here's how I built a printer enclosure for my Taz 6.
I have finally gotten the hardware in (mostly) working order for my wacky fiber optic light suit. Let's check out what I've done!
The trail-ready lightning detector has been out in the wild getting some good use. As summer nears its end, it is a great time to take the project back to the drawing board and figure out what should be upgraded, what should be added and what can be removed – just in time for some fall outdoor adventures!
This summer I went on a tear setting up connected devices in my house with one goal; simplifying the mundane tasks of owning a house. The whole project has got me automating as much as I can, but also non-connected solutions are springing up as well. In this Enginursday, I build a roof over my new connected outdoor outlet.
