Don't have the time is my favorite excuse. As if some folks are being shortchanged, and their days are not quite as long as those of everyone else. Leonardo only had 24 hours in every one of his days too. He had the time. Pro Tip: If you want to sound intelligent never say, I don't have the time. You have the time! You are simply not allocating it to whatever.

Energy Harvesting from body heat

http://hackarobot.com/energy-harvesting-circuit/
Recently, I built an energy harvesting circuit based on an ultra low voltage DC/DC step up converter chip (LTC3108) from Linear Technology. With a 1:100 coil transformer (CoilCraft LPR6235), it converts the tiny voltage generated from Peltier thermo-electric generator into high enough level to ...

How to Build Your Own Metal Detector
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/20/how-to-build-your-own-metal-detector/

Check out this super fun project tutorial from Aleator777 on instructables!
Why not uncover the lost of treasures of bygone civilizations, (or perhaps forgotten goods from a beachside party) with your very own metal detector? In this Instructable, I’ll show you how to build a metal detector that not only sounds when you’ve discovered something, but lights up as well!

Has anyone else here started building the HACKberry? The prints came out surprisingly well on an Ultimaker Original considering their complexity -- I think the most difficult part was find the springs! I had to pull them out of a biro pen.

NEW TUTORIAL: Home Automation in the Cloud with the ESP8266 & Adafruit IO
https://learn.adafruit.com/home-automation-in-the-cloud-with-the-esp8266-and-adafruit-io

The ESP8266 is an amazing little chip which has onboard WiFi capabilities, an integrated processor, and also comes at less than $10. 

This makes it the perfect chip for DIY electronics projects, and especially in the home automation field. There are many breakout boards available for the ESP8266, but in this guide we are going to use the Adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266 breakout, which is a very convenient ESP8266 breakout board.

In this project, we are going to use the ESP8266 to build two components which are very useful in home automation: a sensor module, and a lamp controller. 

We are also going to link these two projects to Adafruit IO, which will allow you to control this small home automation system from anywhere in the world. Let's start!

+Cameron Norris The load cells provide feedback to a closed loop control system enabling the arm to "feel" the world around it. I hope this clarifies it for you.
