Yep, I have. Part of that, was working on the next project that I'll post up here. I'm not going to do a finish-build on the camera light as of yet, since I ordered the wrong LEDs.
This is a smaller, indoor version of something that I've considered doing. I've been interested in hydroponics since reading older Heinlein, Asimov, and Norton sci-fi, and how it could combine air and water recycling, along with providing food.
So one of the more common chips that are used to control DC motors and Steppers is the L293D. It's a really simple chip, that's not too bad to hook up. Used with the Stepper.h library that ships with Arduino it's pretty darned easy to use.
This is something that I've been asked several times, usually by people who aren't into electronics. The thing is, the people who have asked me are almost always really into making/crafts or DIY, or something similar...things that Arduino is just great for!
Feedspot has put out a "Top 20 Arduino Blogs on the Planet" post, and somehow they put me at #17.
Here, I'm going to step through the prototyping process of getting this to work. Step 1: The Power I like to set up the power component of my projects first, since if that doesn't work, I'm not going anywhere. Using PCBs with breadboards without soldering isn't all that friendly, but you can make it work… Continue reading Project: Camera Lighting – Prototyping
So, for those of you who have been following me since I started this last month (both of you), I'm getting ready to actually begin creating video content, as well as the occasional blog.
He makes some really good points about portability, and that is a really good reason to use this. As is basic user-experience. But this is also a good starting point for security.
This is a great Instructable for making a camera slider-rail, specifically for use with stop-motion photography, but it could be used in a lot of different ways.
This is sort of a reminder post. I wrote a more in-depth article about these iolinker boards earlier, and their Kickstarter campaign is set to end, at the time I'm writing this, in 69 hours. They only need about $700 at this point! This thing is so close to becoming funded, and a reality. I just bumped up my pledge a little bit. It wasn't big before, and it still isn't, but every little bit helps when you're this close.
