Neat jumping dress

The author uses a motion sensor to show movement with the dress. Also has a nice “meteor” option too (like a screen saver one). Most of the materials the author uses are from adafruit, which provides nice “kit” like materials … Continue reading

Interesting cheap multi switch automation setup

OK I definately will not make this build. Neat looking where the author uses a stepper to “move” a servo across a row of light switches to turn them on and off. https://www.instructables.com/Cheapest-Plug-Play-Room-Automation-Setup/

Another Kinetic Sand Art Table

Another nice build. I like how the parts are all 3D printed so you do not need to make any custom stuff. I like how he uses fake leather as a buffer between the magnet and the steel ball to … Continue reading

One fancy 3D printed camera motion control rig

Wow this is one complex build. Not so sure I would make this one, even if my printer could print the larger parts. Nice to watch the build thought.

Make your own Epoxy Resin Dispenser

Fancy build, the author basicaly makes a system where you can say how much you need, and it will push out the amount of resin and harden out into the container you place below it. https://www.instructables.com/Arduino-Powered-Automated-Epoxy-Resin-Dispenser-Tu/

Tennis ball launcher build
