I'm waiting for an Arduino food products... some chips and sauce to go...
512  Community / Bar Sport / Re: electric generator idea plausible? on: January 31, 2014, 12:29:59 am
The idea is to generate as much power as possible from using your arm..

Faster the gyro, more power ..  ac not a problem with a diode rectifier..

Basically you grab the device by the handle stretch your arm out and swing down in a wave pattern I drew down (the best I could draw haha)

So basically you turn the swinging action into mechanical movement to power the gyroscope,  this then when combined with coppee and a magnet to produce electricity.... I attached an image of my design .

Also, what causes the crash? Can you avoid it by nightly scheduled reboots?

Although i have to agree, better to fix the memory leaks and bugs ...

but if you have no choice, then take a pick from the suggested options above.

A transistor per computer (or if you must, relays)

To keep costs down, I'd have an Arduino on your lan, have a program on each machine which connects to the arduino, grabs the ip or machine number eg send to the arduino "machine 3" you parse out the value, ie in this instance "3" .

Any machine not resresponding or showing itself, send a signal to the base pin of the transistor for several seconds (4ish seconds) to power it off followed by a delay to switch it back on...

A buch of transistors, 1 ethernet shield, and a lot of programming...

Nasa has certainly had a lot of budget cuts  smiley-eek

You wired it exactly aa specified. ..

How do we know?
519  Community / Bar Sport / Colorado Legal (this moment in time) Invention .. on: January 16, 2014, 08:51:12 pm
Something never been invented.... and Legal...

(I'm poor, if you make over 10 million, I want 1 million dollars lol, even if you make 1billion i'm not greedy lol...)

Basically, Vaporizers take the marijuna to around 185c and it vaporizes the THC (the active drug component of cannabis) it then turns it into a whispy, steamy vapor (hence the name a Vaporizer) . well let's turn the machine that does that into a Commerical Sized one, and instead of placing a small amount, we stick a pound of marijuna into a machine.

We now have Vapor/Clouds whatever including the plants water, and we pump it into a Sauna the Sauna will get warm, the water and oxygen will all mix together resulting in a dense cloud/sauna type conditions but full of THC from the vaporizer machine made from just a couple of hot plates, a fan and a pipe to extra the vapor, a thermostat to regulate the heat of the hotplates, someway to contain it all ,a mico to read the data turn it on and off, maybe a solid state relay...

once design is done, You'll have the worlds first Marijuana Sauna...

On the sign to the Marijuana Sauna... [No sleeping]...

Thanks for Listening.

Q: How does your tap [faucet] know how much water to draw from the supply?
A: It doesn't know anything. It draws as much as you demand.

A: It doesn't know anything. It draws as much as you demand.

this is a short circuit, to prevent a short, you induce resistance into your circuit purposely via a resistor or a bulb, if it's a diode like an LED, you need to limit it's current with a resistor or controlling the current flow with  more diodes or semiconductors like a couple of transistors and resistor to measure current flow and adjust the current flowing through the transistor.

Ohms law again.
521  Community / Bar Sport / Thomas Edison vs Tesla on: January 14, 2014, 09:06:46 pm
Edison and westinghouse pitched the ideas for a Generator, tesla high voltage ac, edison low voltage dc.

Great shows were put on, electrocution from both power sources, DC was supposed to hurt but not kill you... well I've been zapped a couple of times at 240ac but I've felt my muscles contract from the sparks from battery terminal clips when high current flows...

So it begs the question a high powered dc low voltage placed near your heart, this should be able to kill?
522  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: How do components know how much current to draw on: January 14, 2014, 08:05:47 pm
Ohms law...

The wire's resistance will limit the total current available to your circuit, with exception to mainly diodes and batteries which operate on current after a required voltage has been provided.

Leds and batteries will consume large amounts of current providing the differential difference is high enough.

It's a self regulating fan site, without the fans the product would not exist
524  Using Arduino / LEDs and Multiplexing / Re: Noobish LED Question on: January 13, 2014, 02:19:59 am
You just need a transistor rated for enough current to power them.
525  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: 555 timer not resetting when connected to two relays... on: January 12, 2014, 09:10:43 am
Then it has to be a current issue then!

Measure the voltage drop of the battery when in atable.
