WireWorld » Making Stuff » Other People's Projects

This is an unsorted (but tagged) list of cool things other people have done and then posted their own set of instructions about how they did it that might be useful later for one of my own projects.

AVR-based USB dual trace oscilloscope(via)
The ATTiny45 handles both USB connectivity and two traces. Nice!
EFSL - FAT filesystem for Microcontrollers(via)
A FAT filesystem written in C for microcontrollers
Low Cost Hobby Servo XY Table(via)
Instead of making something with super-high accuracy, how about lower accuracy with cheaper parts? Works for me...
DIY Flexible Printed Circuits(via)
This would be awful cool for some hacking projects, I suspect.
Mobius circuit(via)
I can't believe somebody made a truly single sided circuit.
Leyden jar of DOOM!(via)
I don't think I've got the capacitor to appreciate this enough.
Reverse Surface Mounting method for leadless surface mount devices(via)
This is a neat prototyping technique to mount SMT parts in a piece of through-hole board.
DIY Heat Sinks(via)
Oh, this is good. Buying heat sinks sucks.
How To Make A High Voltage Power Supply(via)
Always a handy piece of electronics, high voltage power supplies. :D
Auduino(via)
Grandular synthesis with an AVR.
AVR controlled RC plane(via)
This is somebody building something that I'd wanted to try building. Very cool.
Electronic minimalism - Intro(via)
This creative design for a light-sensing LED flasher uses the LEDs themselves as light sensors.
Run an uC from an AA-battery - Introduction(via)
I just found this on Hack a day. This dude's crazy, reducing things down to the most minimal hardware you can use. This project powers a microcontroller from a single AA battery with a switching power supply inside the microcontroller.
Cellular automata and LED matrix fun(via)
This is far more LEDs with PWM than I've ever attempted to drive from a single AVR... but quite cool. Reducing things down to 16 discrete values seems to help quite a bit...
Simple Solar Circuits(via)
A simple tour through how to work with solar cells in a circuit.
