Fascinating method for turning a normal toy servo into a continuous rotation servo. It's probably been done before by other people that I've never heard of such a thing. Great way to make tiny inexpensive rolling robots.

I think pretty well any servo can do it. It's just a matter of making sure it can mechanically turn 360 and then getting the pot wiper stuck center or just put a pair of resistors in it's place...

Cool.  If you really want to get into sensors like this... you should check out Modbus sensors.  It's the industry standard protocol.  It's truly awful to deal with as a developer. Modbus = Cruel painful death. http://www.hach.com/ is one of the larger companies that supplies sensors for most industrial applications, for factories and what not.

Back by popular demand!
The "Linux Version" of my Business Cards.

Please use some imagination -- these are the digitals that will get printed onto cardstock. My printer still needs color ink, so prototypes would just kill the black ink at this point.

Left is Ubuntu 14.04 and right is CentOS 6.5

The irony of Linux distros is that there are too many distro terminals to choose from.

Any ideas for distros with eye-catching terminals?

The curiously more popular "Windows Version" here in prototype form: https://plus.google.com/116552611740800333287/posts/YLgv3YUK5JE

+Ben Norris yeah, my headless CentOS box only has CLI, but a totally black card isn't as artistically appealing.

Community Corner – July 4, 2014: Featured Projects from this Week
http://adafru.it/dF2

There are people making amazing things around the world, are you one of them? Join Adafruit Community! And check out scores of projects they shared this week after the jump!

Paul Frederick shared a replacement part he created for his mill:

A Better Mousetrap? Perhaps. All I know is I hated the original stop on my milling machine so much I hardly ever used it, and I made this one to replace it. A squeeze opens it, and allows me to move it up, and down the threaded rod. I can still turn the threaded rod to fine adjust it though.

Glass Awards created with Trinket and Neopixels

Laser etched and kiln slumped sheet glass, neopixels, and a trinket set into an oak base. Three awards created for the Institute for Humane Education. Love mixing Adafruit products into my work!

I spent this afternoon making my very first quadcopter
Although I'm still waiting on the remote so I can make the maiden flight, I've been thinking of all the things I could do with a NeoPixel strip on the underside or even adapting the NeoPixel rings under the motors like what Adafruit did for the Iris

I'm learning how to use Eagle and I'm trying to iron out my first board I want to get manufactured.

I had some room after I did my first design so I put another design below it. I was wondering how I should go about adding a slot in between the two designs. I'm planning on getting them done by dirtypcbs.com. Can I just draw a line on the Dimension (20) layer? How wide should it be?

Any other tips for an Eagle beginner?

Thanks!

You can configure the rules to ensure minimum size/clearance for pads, vias, traces, etc. in DRC quite easily. I haven't had to change any of the default settings but it is available. Just about all of the components I use are included by default, so I haven't had to worry too much about invalid dimensions.

Industrial Laser Engraving for countless applications.  We like it, We Love it, We want more of it!
Even with the most state of the art equipment, running a manufacturing business can sometimes be a bit confusing.  Especially when a person sets the machine wrong.  The reasons are sometimes simple...

Death metal band to play in an airtight cube until they run out of oxygen #MusicMonday
http://adafru.it/dF7

Death metal band Unfathomable Ruination are to perform in an airtight, soundproofed box outside the Gherkin in London this week.

Visible but inaudible to the public, the band’s set will form an art installation by Portuguese artist João Onofre called ‘Box Sized DIE’, which is part of new exhibition Sculpture in the City.

“The box is soundproofed, determining and restricting the performance’s duration to the length of time in which the oxygen is expended,” a blurb on the installation reads.

“Outside the cube, viewers observe its strange vibrations, only viewing the band’s entrance and exit to the performance space.”

Packed into the tiny cube, Unfathomable Ruination will play tracks from their album, possibly including hits like ‘Edges of Disfigured Atrocity’ and ‘Futile Colossus Decapitated’.

1) It's a giant airtight box. That is awesome.
2) It's in the band's job description to be gratuitously brutal. What's more so than shredding in a box until you run out of air?
I hope they record it.

Make: Ford
Model: Model T
FUCKING HELL! Sorry about the swearing for those under 18 years old, but that’s just about everyone’s reaction to seeing Gordon Tronson’s twin V8 powered Ford Model T. To be fair, my response was even more ruder than that, but seriously, have you ever seen anything like this before?
Gordon’s a genuine, 1,000% petrol head; in fact, he must be one of the biggest car fanatics in the world. So in some ways it’s no surprise he’s ended up building this 1,007bhp twin 4.6-litre Ford-powered nutter mobile.
He’s originally from New Zealand, and was a big part of the bike, Rod and Custom scene before moving to Canada where he ran a Top Alcohol Funny Car, before running out of money. You see what I mean about petrol head?
Then Gordon began building Lamborghini Countach replicas with a mixture of Corvette and Porsche running gear. They were top quality but someone, possibly with a name like Don Finchenzo, got a bit upset and shut him down in a 5-millon dollar law suit back in 1990.
So he started – and still has – a successful telecoms and electrical business which has enabled him to build rides like this T-Bucket.
Having made Lambo replicas for years, the T was a doddle. It was totally built from scratch with just an idea, no drawings, no models, just his experience and the motivation he was creating something truly unique. Gordon started by placing the two V8s on boxes next to each other to fabricate the chassis around them. The V8s are joined together with a high-tech Gates Poly Chain Carbon belt and sprocket drive that chucks over 1,000 supercharged horses into the Ford C5 gearbox.
With the drivetrain mated up, Gordon got on with easy stuff, like respraying the fibreglass T-body in Candy blue, fitting out the leather interior and bolting on the unshy Billet Specialities rims covered in Mickey Thompson rubber. All in, it took Gordon less than six months to hand-build one of the most mental machines that’s ever rolled on the Earth’s crust.

In context with all the energy / climate panic, this love affair with old gas guzzlers is looking reactionary.     People who I don't expect to be conservatives, turning the clock back, are going for it.           Why?

Which was more presumptuous: my self entitlement or keeping the Microsoft copyright?

Still a prototype -- printer needs a new color cartridge. Just wanted to make sure i could fit 10 on a sheet and cut them easily.



Edit:
Dear Microsoft,

Per the advice of my legal advisor (see below), all 10 prototypes of the pictured card have been appropriately destroyed. Neither they nor others will be disseminated, or even generated.

Thank you for creating your command prompt. I obviously appreciate its iconic design.

Sincerely,

Jose L.
