This holiday is the most meaningful holiday ever! That’s because I had a lot of things to do related to my hobby to play with electric stuff. I have met with a new buddy called ARDUINO (ever heard??) sound like italian huh? Yeah cause it’s made and developing in italy by Massimo Banzi and team. To put it simply, arduino is a open source single board microcontroller which make you enable to manipulating many physical things, such as wireless controlling of your lightning, automatic door, you can make some music, light or measuring temperature, humidity and many more! That possible because the arduino has the capability to interact with the “outer world” with it’s friendly I/O.
Since i met this guy, i’m getting more amazed with the electricity. So that, i read some basic books and beginning to make some electric stuff like high voltage power supply, DC-DC converter, DIY lamp and the coilgun. Currently i’m working with my TV B-Gone remote and making my own bench power supply from the ATX power supply. Just check out the picture of some of my project below!
Well that’s what i’ve done so far, I’m still looking the great idea for the upcoming contest. Actually there’s one unique idea, but I’ve to do a lot of research to make a good plan and make the idea come to a shape! 😀
Take a look at my TV B-gone below! I do have a lot of fun with this one, i can easily turn off and on the TV from all manufacturing (actually not all :p)
Well, see you later!
