Transmissometer: measures concentration with lasers

I’m starting a company that makes campfire scented cologne, and to solve a problem in my production process, I built a transmissometer.  Here is the video Aaron Kowalski and I made with Element 14‘s support:

Here are more details on the device, including photos, schematics, and source code.

Thanks to everyone who helped out with the build and filming!

Take On The Machine: Crashspace

This week, our hacker brethren in Los Angeles bring their ear for music to the game. Their motion-sensing synthesiser gets plenty of attention from passers-by in their storefront space. Props to them on tuning flowerpots and empty bottles of Carlsberg!

Cylons will eat you

With great pride and humility I present my Cylon! This is my very first dabble into electronics so I am pretty sure that the whole thing will burst into flames at any moment. The eye(s) are soldered onto a generic board I bought and are hooked up to a freeduino that I made during a transistor thursdays class awhile back. In a future model I hope to hook up a range sensor that will only turn on the Cylon when someone steps in front of it. For now, however, enjoy the simple pleasure of sentient robots!
