Back in the 90s, gamers loaded out their PCs with Creative’s Sound Blaster family of sound cards. Those who were really serious about audio could connect a daughterboard called the Creative Wave Blaster. This card used wavetable synthesis to provide more…

#RaspberryPiZero mobile text reader/scanner assists people w/ visual impairments: TextEye: Raspberry Pi (Zero) Mobile Textreader http://bit.ly/1TEd23A
The idea behind this project is to create a mobile device that can be pointed at signs, menu cards, books, magazines etc. and on the press of a button read them to you. Using the Raspberry Pi, preferably the compact Pi Zero, a camera module, audio output and a rechargeable battery in a yet-to-be-designed case, it should be possible to achieve this by a combination of software for taking images, OCR processing and text-to-speech conversion. ...

Upgrade your Beta/Gamma/XRay with a $15 Geiger-Muller Counter to detect several kinds of ionizing radiation: http://bit.ly/2jxAvp4
This is a Geiger-Muller radiation detector utilizing a 600V modified disposable camera power supply and a 3.5mm jack output to an audio source. It clicks when radiation is detected by the tube. A 2N2222 transistor is triggered by a pulse from the Geiger tube (a SI-3BG radiation tube), which causes the 3V input from the power source (2 AA batteries in my case) to cross the transistor and induce a click in the audio source. Any audio device with a ...

While there’s something to be said for dead-bug construction, hot glue, and other construction methods that simply get the job done, it’s inspiring to see other builds that are refined and intentional but that still hack together things for purposes other…
