Cool 3D print cat (maybe dog) toy

Nice build, the parts you can 3D print out, and with 2 servos, a laser pointer, and an ESP, you can build one yourself. I could see expanding this build myself. https://www.instructables.com/id/LaserCat/

Another CDROM CNC build

This build is a bit interesting, as it uses the base of the original CDROM, but the Y is a 3D printed part with the motor. I like the Y and Z part of this build, may have to save … Continue reading

Cool CNC build from CD ROM drives

Most builds I see are stationary, this is nice since you can move it to draw on different mediums. I have seem another build like this before. Just not with a nice write up and video https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Arduino-Based-Mini-CNC-Machine-New-Design/

Using an old touchpad to control a stepper motor

Nice build with an arduino for the controller. You use the touchpad to move one way or the other, and tap to continue moving. https://www.instructables.com/id/Reuse-Old-Laptops-Touchpad-to-Control-a-Stepper-Mo/

Simple automatic soap dispenser

Using an arduino, IR sensor, and a servo, the author built a pretty simple conversion for a pump action soap dispenser. Could be a simple project to do with kids. https://www.instructables.com/id/Automatic-Soap-Dispenser-Using-Arduino/

Another simple ventilator build

Clever build. I don’t see these builds ever making it to US due to regulations, and fear of lawsuits. But maybe other countries can use these ideas. https://www.instructables.com/id/Intro-RespiArt-a-Simply-Ventilator/

Cool looking wall art

Interesting build. One thing I might do differently is put an inner set of LED strips too. https://www.instructables.com/id/Wooden-Neopixel-Hexagon/

No contact soap dispenser

Nice build. Seems a bit overkill but if you have someone sick in the house or lots of folks… https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Easy-Non-Contact-Automatic-Hand-Sanitizer-Disp/

Interesting build for a shop filter

The author made a controller for the wood job to turn it on/off based on sound, remote, or a button. Also has a timer. Oh all based on an arduino.
