Flash-Memory-Programmer-Known-as-FlashProg

Electronic memory comes in a variety of forms to serve a variety of purposes. Flash memory is used for easy and fast information storage in computers, digital cameras and home video game console.

This programmer was designed to be used in devices that can store BIOS in mainboards. Its purpose is to support for read, write, erase, chip protection configuration and chip identification operations. Constructing this design is easy because most of the parts are available and easily constructed on PCB or breadboard. FlashProg is USB base flash memory programmer which is specifically design to read and program 3.3V SPI flash memory devices. Good thing that this program can support both LINUX and Windows operating systems.

Build-Your-Own-Smart-Medicine-Box

Wouldn’t it be cool if there were a tool or piece of automated equipment that held your medicine and reminded you to take it? To get better, it is important to take the medication in the proper manner and at the proper time.

This smart medicine box is a tool that would know when you picked up and took your medicine. After the user finished entering all the information, the device will enter the comparison stage unless the initialization button is pressed. During the comparison stage, the system compares the pill information for each of the sub-box with the time counted by RTC. Once the information entered by the user matches the RTC time, the system will jump out of comparison stage and enter the reminder stage. In the reminder stage, the device will continuously play synthesized voice, and the seven segments LED display will show the number of pills needs to be taken on each of the sub-box.

Accurate Location Tracker Known as Pozyx

Accurate-Location-Tracker-Known-as-Pozyx

The GPS in your phone is good enough for driving direction, but at times it can be off by anywhere from a few feet to a half a block.

The team behind Pozyx is building a system that they say can get down to a few centimeters, and can precisely locate objects indoors or outdoors.

The unit is an Arduino microcontroller extension, also making it relatively easy to program. If the unit were coupled with a range finder, then the device would even be able to assist in collision detection, with the added benefit that with the position now accurately known, you can remember where an obstacle is, so you don’t run into it over and over like the vacuum robots we all know.

Photobooth-Driven-by-Raspberry-Pi

Photobooths are fun! They can inspire goofiness in just about anyone.

Python application runs the device and used GPIO pins to control a relay module hooked up to 2 strip light to create a timed bulb flash. There’s a special web interface for controlling the booth, a modified Raspberry Pi camera module with a wider lens, and a button for turning the screen on and off. Digital manufacturing technologies play a big part as it is built and designed to be fabricated. This booth allows user to take pictures while controlled by Smartphone via a website and then the pictures allows anyone to update their pictures at anytime.

Raspberry Pi’s, camera module emerged as a good candidate for the cameras due to their image quality, ease of networked control.

Pulse Temperature Controller for Soldering Irons

Pulse-Temperature-Controller-for-Soldering-Irons

The biggest benefit when working with pulse soldering iron with pulse timer control is speed and effectiveness. We have to know details about soldering temperature. This is the circuit of simple soldering iron temperature control, in order to control or limit soldering temperature. This unit sends power to the soldering iron in precisely timed pulses in a way that mimics the timing of how a temperature controlled soldering station does. The timer was limited for only10 seconds from the cold start so it was modified by replacing with a 1 Meg ohm trimmer, making the timer to be set up to 100 seconds.

When you don’t work, it stays cool this means it saves energy, doesn’t evaporates poisonous steam and there is no risk accidentally to burn yourself.

Silicon Fuzz Pedal for Guitar

Silicon-Fuzz-Pedal-for-Guitar

Fuzz guitar pedal serves up its own delectable fuzz recipe. From classic rock to contemporary fusion, fuzz has been applied to guitar signals to weave a unique musical texture – either by itself, or to aggravate the input of an already overdriven tube amp.

This pedal has various features such as pure, musical-sounding classic fuzz thick fuzz/overdrive with rich harmonics and massive headroom, two controls – volume and fuzz and lets you easily nail the sound you’re after. It is also in compact form factor takes up very little space on your pedal board and it works great on bass, too.

Some silicon fuzz pedals have a reputation for being a bit harsh on the top-end, especially when used with single coil pickups or a bright-sounding guitar in general.

Beach Signage Designed in LED

Beach-Signage-Designed-in-LED

Having a signage is perfect for any business. It has rich and vibrant red and blue colored lens for daytime brightness that makes the business livelier.

The sign has the word “BEACH” spelled vertically. It originally came with blue LEDs to light up each letter. The problem was that the LEDs had a narrow beam that would blind people on the other side of the room. The designer changed the LEDs into multicolored that would increase the fun factor.

Rather than building a remote control from scratch, he found a compatible RF remote while the LED controller was removed from its housing and soldered to the string of LEDs. It was then hot glued to a piece of cardboard and placed into the sign’s original battery compartment.

Voltmeter Integrated with DC Buck Converter

Voltmeter-Integrated-with-DC-Buck-Converter

This great little DC-DC buck (step-down) converter has a handy built-in red LED 3 digit voltmeter which can display either the input voltage or the output voltage, depending on the position of the pushbutton switch. There’s a small LED on the board that lights when you are viewing the input voltage, so there’s never any confusion.

The unit uses an LM2577S for boosting the voltage up and an LM2596S for stepping the voltage down. This particular unit was designed for voltage regulation for solar panels. It is supposed to maintain a steady output even with variations of the input supply voltage. The input voltage displays 24.4 volts.
