Fifteen great gadget-making resources
Like to tell you regular tales about great electronic designs you can do yourself - things like homemade battery packs, how to make your own Tesla coil or a hexagonal nut torch. While we know that some of you already have hands-on gadget making and crafting expertise, many of you may wonder where and how to do it.
We' ve put together some of the best do-it-yourself guidebooks and domes to familiarize you with special equipment like Raspberry Pi or Arduino or, if you're more expert, to inspire you for your next big buil. Perhaps if you are a real beginner before going to a device-specific tutorial, you might want to begin with what is widely regarded as the final electronic manufacturing induction.
In 36 expeditions it says in the descriptions of the book: "They are learning the principles of tension, current, resistivity, capacity, inductance and other basic principles. You will also get to know the researchers and the basic findings that have made the world of electronic technology possible. When you are finished, you have a profound electronic know-how and are prepared to enter the world of amateur electronic, microcontroller and robot technology with confidence.
" As soon as you finish reading Make: Electronic, this guide will take you to the next stage and show you how to turn all this new know-how into working cadgets. It covers sensor, photovoltaic, GPS, microcontroller, microprocessor, liquid crystal display, and more. If it comes to creating Halloween style cassettes, the only limitation is fantasy, but sometimes it can help to have a little bit of mechanics to successfully do what you imagine.
This is a great work for anyone who's always wanted to do something that moved but didn't know where to begin. "Included in the project are a drafting engine, a mini-wind power plant, a mouse trap vehicle and much more, including subjects such as 3-D print and touring.
Made by Make Magazine, this guide will guide you from setting up the computer, through the installation of the OS, to two practical beginners' work. Now that you have read this, you will be prepared to embark on some of the great Rasbperry Pi ventures that the web has to provide.
It is also a general introductory guide to the small computer by one of Raspberry Pi's co-founders, as well as opportunities for teachers to integrate the equipment into their classroom, how to link the computer to other pieces of equipment, how to setup computer programs, and even how to control things like a multi-media centre or a robotic system.
It is a promising resource for those with no electronic expertise to create Arduino controlled cadgets within a few mins. This includes directions for making a multi-purpose radio control, a burglary alert that notifies you by email when someone is in your home, and many other things. After you' ve learned the fundamentals, this guide provides over 200 hints and tools for constructing a wide range of items and prototype devices that interoperate with the realm of physics - things like tools, detection devices, robot and clothes that react to contact, sounds, position, temperature and lights.
This is a fast way of combining an intro to the unit and design guides and how to install, programme and plug in an Arduino card to the computer to create 30 different funny designs such as a Morse code converter, a heart beat sensor and a magnet padlock. The Make Magazine Buyer's Guidebook will compare all the latest model 3-D printing machines and tell you which are the best purchases, which is the best solution for your needs, and of course give you some great designs you can make with your new 3-D printing machine.
Included in this guide are step-by-step guides to calibrate, customize and create designs, which include 3-D text in print, a battleship design, a robotic deck, wind-up toy and arcade-inspired space-invadors. Designed for enthusiasts and newcomers to the world of 3-D print, this is less a guide and more an investigation into what 3-D print means for the production industry, the electronic industry, biotech and more.
When you are interested in the implication and possible uses of this nascent technique, this is a chill. Your Home is programmed based on the Arduino read and craft ing expertise you've acquired to help you pack neat home control products such as a telephone app that warns you to pack supplies at your front doors, an online watchdog that prevents intruders, smartphone-controlled deadlocks and a birdwatch that transmits a message to tell you when the bird is eating.
Perfectly combining Raspberry Pi and Arduino, this guide will take you from a fundamental introduction to the use of technology to home control applications that use both to customize your home environments, from illumination to space-conditioning and more. When you want to bring some PV technology into your home but don't want to spend a penny on it, this guide shows you how to reap the benefits of self-built PV products such as PV battery charging units, PV stoves, water heater, hot air collector and off-grid inlets.
Whilst this guidebook on off-grid power for your home in general, it provides a step-by-step tutorial for making your own pod.
