Servo Tester

Ever do projects with multiple servos, and require to zero the servos and determine the range of movements? Current servo testers from Hobbyking/RC do not give feedback as to what value to enter into Arduino code to achieve the same angle as tested. One way could be to experimentally test by changing servo angles and […]

Smittybilt Beaver Step

This is a combination truck hitch step/recovery point/bumper protector. This step has an interesting shape, more like a broad arrow head than the beaver tail it is named after. The unique shape makes it very easy to thread a recovery strap through and/or around it for secure use. As for its construction, it is SOLID […]

Scratch Build an RC Car With CAD and Rapid Prototyping

IntroductionFor a long time I have wanted to build an RC car completely from scratch, but never quite had access to all of the tools required to do it by hand or been able to justify the cost of using rapid prototyping methods. After taking part in the Intel IOT Invitational and the Mediatek Linkit […]

Adjustable High Current Lab SMPS Out of a Standard ATX PS

I like to work on PCs, therefore I stored lots of ATX Power Supply’s over the years. I always thought that switching technology is something very complicated, but with some electric basic knowledge it is relatively easy to understand. Although this project is a bit complicated, and requires some bas…By: Gabse Continue Reading » from […]

CNC Hanging Plotter

This instructable describes an experimental "hanging plotter" that uses two "Arduino Uno R3" microcontrollers each of which is connected to a stepping motor. A vertical line is obtained if both motors rotate at the same speed for the same period of time. A sloping line is obtained if the motors rota…By: lingib Continue Reading » […]

Visuino : Nextion Lcd Based Acceleration to Angle Display

I am always a fan of display modules and after coming across visuino nextion support I could not resist myself so i decided to use it as per my custom designed interface( however after this Intructable everyone can design their own). Visuino not only simplifies the process but also saves much time. so your display […]

Filipino Plastic Bag Kite

Maayong hapon! That means ‘good afternoon’ in Cebuano, one of the languages spoken in the southern half of the Philippines. This Instructible will teach you how to make an easy, authentic Filipino Plastic Bag Kite. To give credit where credit is due, I learned how to make this craft from my Filipino teacher, Loreben Metillo. […]

Fly a mini-drone with your computer!

A few months ago, I watched a TED Talk where they setup an indoor arena and did some amazing things with drones. It got me thinking, and it inspired me to build something like that for myself – but on a much smaller and cheaper scale. In the TED Talk video they use an expensive […]
