Another good build for your own nano leafs

Me…I am on the fence on this, the look is cool, but I can’t justify the cost even with building my own. https://www.instructables.com/LED-Light-Panels/

Add a kill count to a flyswatter

I got a kick out of this one, the author added a kill count to a electric fly swatter to get a count of how many bugs he got.  This project uses an arduino under the hood. https://www.instructables.com/Ultimate-Mosquito-Swatter-Mod-for-Gamer-Add-Kill-C/ https://youtu.be/_ZuR5MYr-M4

Making your own lie detector

Now you have to attach staps to the person, but its an interesting build using an arduino to tell when someon is not telling the truth.

Interesting farm platform (acorn)

The author is pretty colorful. Its using an ardiuno/RPi combo for controlling it, right now its just the platform and its goal is to automate farming. I think this looks interesting, but has a ways to go.

Another nice CNC foam cutter

This one seems to let you “expand” the width of the table for the cutter. https://www.hackster.io/news/make-your-own-four-axis-cnc-foam-cutter-on-the-cheap-9b421e8269e5

Infinite Y axis plotter

Always interesting how plotters are making a comeback as CNC projects.

Make a sand art table

Another build that is pretty detailed.

Doom on an ESP32

This has been making alot of rounds lately, DOM being ported to run on an ESP32 Pico board with a 240×240 tiny screen.

Nice Telsa Coil winder

With an Arduino as the controller, I actually wonder if this could be adapted to make windings for generators. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/tesla-coil-winding-machine-video-87864?homelistings#post190796

Arduino controlled Foam Cutter

I can’t remember if I did this once before, but I was looking at building one of these again. And stumbled on this build. Mostly has 3D printed parts and uses an arduino for the controller.
