Eee PC Hack – How to Add Twitter/Facebook/Etc Status LEDs!

As I’ve mentioned, Eee PC 1000HE is probably the best netbook on the market today, that’s why I have one.   If you got one of these mini beasts, you might want to also know that it’s possible to hack it with status LEDs that can tell you when your friend tweeted you on Twitter or even get notified when someone write on your Facebook wall.

This is an interesting little modification

Printball Paintball Printer!


Yes, this is something that we need the most…a Printball Paintball Printer!

Lol… I wonder if you can “miss”…

The PrintBall is like an Ink-Jet printer using a PaintBall Gun as printhead. The gun is mounted on a custum made pan & tilt unit which is connected to a Max/Msp based software through an Atmel chip [programmed in Basic]. The software allow the users to loa

Atmel AVR HACK – Temperature Controller using Microcontroller AVR

Check out the Atmel AVR temperature controller hack, although I made a better one last year that can be controlled via ethernet, the case looks awesome!

Wine doesn’t like subzero temperatures, and during wintertime, my “winecellar” got pretty cold. There was an electric heating element, but the thermostat was broken, so it was either full burn or nothing.

That’s how the te

DIY HACK – Voltmeter Ammeter LCD

Check out voltmeter and ammeter LCD panel you can make using an Atmel8 MCU. Tight!

This multimeter was designed to measure output voltage and current in a PSU, where the current sense shunt resistor is connected in series with load at the negative voltage rail. It needs only one supply voltage that can be acquired from main PSU. An additional function of the multimeter is that it can control (s

DIY – Cool prototyping technique!

Check out this great prototyping technique! Thanks dwrenne!

To build any electronics handicrafts, there are some wiring materials. I think most people are wiring circuit board with PTFE (Teflon) insurated wire. But the PTFE wire is not suitable for wiring material with solder due to following reasons.


DIY HACK – Oscilloscope using PIC

Here’s a cool DIY oscilloscope using a PIC12F675 kinda similar to the Atmega Atmel Oscilloscope.

This is a simple PC voltage oscilloscope using only a PIC12F675, a 20MHz oscillator, and a RS232 level shifter. The PIC takes a sample on GP2, immediately sends it to the PC at 115,200 baud using an software asynchronous serial routine, and repeats. It sends a 8-bit value that is read by the Visual Basic
