  • It’s a decoupling capacitor: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decoupling_capacitor

  • Nice tutorial, but: why didn’t he use the laser cutter for the control box as well? Okay, it’s cool to go berserk and use as many tools as you have available - and teaching how to use Creo and Mach and what not at the same time. But since all the parts are doable on a laser cutter…you know…c'mon. Half the effort and you don’t need super expensive software (open source Inkscape will do most of the time).

  • Have a look at the provided table by rawebb: http://www.omega.com/temperature/z/pdf/z103.pdf (PDF) As you can see a saturated NaCl-solution (Sodium Chloride…or what most people say: (common) salt) leads to ~74-76%RH in the whole (sensible) temperature range. Actually, we learn stuff like that in school in Germany.

  • if u use an Arduino have a look at this thread http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,92074.0.html

No public wish lists :(
