DIY Candle Simulator

Candle light is usually warm and waves slowly with the random oscillations of the air in the surrounding environment. It should be possible to simulate the effect of a candle with a small electronic circuit that generates random patterns or numbers. Here is a simple such circuit shared by Embedds member. To create the candle effect […]

Crazy Hard Drive Clocks

  Hackedgadgets member Alan Parekh shared some amazing works on hard drive clock designs. Various designs are: Alan Parekh Hard Drive Clock Jason Amsel and Konstantin Klitenikfrom Hard Drive Clock Ian Smith Hard Drive Clock Waldeck Schutzer Hard Drive Clock (translated version) Baidu Hard Drive Clock  (translated version) You too can build your own design with […]

DIY LED based 3D screen

 Hackedgadgets member Alan Parekh shared an amazing build of Seekway who develped a 3D screen using 76, 000 LEDs.  If you are having a big building entrance, then you too can try to build such a huge display to put it in. If not, then still you can try some smaller builds for your room. Creating one […]

MEMS technology based Tilt Sensor

Pyroelectro member Chris presents a very interesting project of building a working tilt sensor. The latest MEMS Technology based accelorometer sensor is used together with some digital circuitry and LEDs to build this Tilt Sensor. The Tilt sensor should have 3 core components: A Custom Comparator Based Analog to Digtal Converter An 8-State Machine To Drive The LED […]

LED based 4m WiFi Detector

You’ve seen number of WiFi detectors before, but none quite like as shared by Donald Melanson, a member of Engadget. Donald shared an ambitious project so called WiFi networks with light cooked up by Norwegian designers. The project is basically composed of a four-meter long WiFi-detecting rod that boasts 80 LED bulbs and picks up signals of various strengths from […]
