TVShow 3X12 Flashing Light Prize (1) Arduino Wave Generator
Probable electrocution? Check.
KY Jelly? Lubricated.
Let's show this prehistoric bitch how we flash bulbs down town.

Ingredients
1. Arduino Uno
2. Micro Servo
3. 5V Regulator
4. (2) 10nf Cap
5. 12V Incandescent Bulb
6. Acrylic (Dollar Store Picture Frame)
7. 10K Potentiometer (Optional)
8. Table Salt or Baking Soda

Notation(s)
1. Discovered the miniaturization of our previous wave generator provided less opportunity for more visually amplified waves. Ended up with a beached wave...so...crap, another words. Tip; depth, shallows and angle of attack. Next FLP (2) project will approach things differently. Vodka and flames?!

2. Plain tap water is a poor electrical conductor. Added table salt and baking soda to increase conductivity. To what ratio? This much to this much by this many.

3. (Update) Attempted several further lever variations w/o any significant increase in wave pattern. Simply requires enlarged length and depth for greater motion...that's what she said.

#SixSeasonsAndAMovie

Notation(s)
1. Adjusting to the new video-contraption i.e. smart phone, left one angle particularly poor and vocal audio equally as dismal. Inadequate tools remain inadequate. Regardless, the governing rule of this series remains stead fast; "Get this piece of shit off my desk top and let us move on..." Sigh.

2. Limitation to distance traveled observed in the video is not present in the sketch posted.

3. Our AI interface "Jacob" present in previous episodes was the go between for response to the auditory key words "no movie" triggering the cruel events that followed.

4. This was built for the sake of stupid; C minus.

5. Why the white boards?! The wheels (see HaD.io project logs) are made from card board and hot glue...they uh, did not do well on uneven worn wood floors.

Ingredients
1. Arduino Uno
2. HC-06 Bluetooth Module
3. SR06 Ultrasonic Sensor
4. 360 Degree Servo
5. Boring Regular Servo
7. 1000nf Cap
8. 47K Res

TVShow S03E04X76 Arduino Back Scratcher Plotter
Digitally ditch the itch --

Currently embracing a sans-work shop and poverty driven cardboard kick for the gluttony of least-interesting of novelty projects now done solely for critical thinking posterity -- other wise known as boredom.

Unable to reach that nook and/or cranny? Open the Back Scratcher Plotter app on your mobile device and identify the spot where then the X/Y axis is sent via bluetooth to the Arduino Uno affixed to the BSP prototype (sly analogy for rubbish) which then actuates to your -- you know what? Stop wasting your time sitting there even reading this nonsense and go some where -- like Typhoon Lagoon!

TVShow S03E03X75 Simone Slouchy
After several dismissive attempts (3) -- we have haphazardly weaved together an Arduino Uno with cardboard, ultrasonic sensor, servo(s) and stepper(s) to remind, pester and intolerate your posture.

This project was hobbled together as a slight against the current incarnation of the maker community that at one time had been invested in improving humanity -- now succumbed to vanity and novelty. This project demonstrates that even with little to nothing applied, useless can harbor solution. Plaguing social venues with the antithesis breeds a consequence of evolutionary latency.

Ingredients
1. Arduino Uno
2. Stepper Motor (28BYJ-48)
3. Stepper Driver (ULN2003)
4. Ultrasonic Sensor (HC-SR04)
5. (2) Servos (High Torque)
6. Cardboard
7. Spite

Notations
1. 28BYJ-48 are cheap bcz they are in fact, rubbish -- do not be fooled by reviews documenting "high torque" and "power" bcz they fail to mention they only used these stepper motors to propel insignificantly sized wheeled robots a few paces before over heating and seizing.

2. Per my review above (Notation 1) may I suggest the alternative of either the purchase of or the modification of a servo to operate at 360 degree rotation -- ref. http://tvmiller.com/index.php?entry=entry160123-071155

3. A modified version of this code applied distance reference to alter the position of the shoulder servo relative to the actual distance of the sloucher -- due to impatience, disinterest and coherence of my typical distance, the code is commented but easily accessible.

Instructables - Simone Slouchy
Kathrine Becker (Suzy Sellout) - Gone For A While
Failed Simone Slouchy Endeavor 1 and 2
Pursuing an attempt at spite, ironically -- the humorous self deprecating variety -- we have now twice failed at constructing an Arduino project to which we shall explain in detail further following a hypothetical successful third attempt soon...and subsequent fourth attempt. Son of a-- any who -- our first attempt was interrupted by time and our second venture was deterred by stepper motors (28BYJ-48) proving to be far more feeble than anticipated.

TVShow S03E02X74 Arduino Splash Resistant Toilet Foamer

Splash back is a scourge of our archaic crapping technology. As alternative to perching several feet above the bowl comes the Arduino Toilet Foamer -- permitting a user to create a more splash-resistant, sanitary and refreshing bowl environment.

Bowels a-grumblin'? Activate the Arduino Toilet Foamer from your phone app -- triggering the Arduino relay(s) for the aerator and solenoid value which injects a specified dosage of glycerin and soap in to the bowl water where it becomes en-frothed by gyrating bubbling action. Exhume waste as necessary.

Notations

1. Advice to straighten vinyl tubing is to boil water and quickly submerge.
Dry in the desired angle. Cure shorter pieces by submerging in cold water.

2. Do not use concentrated liquid dish or hand soap -- aka "Ultra" brand.

3. Would-a could-a shd-a larger aerator, (2) more valves and a variant bubbler to increase foaming efficiency.

4. Hypothetically, water reduction could be obtained by foaming water in a toilet.

TVShow S03E01X73 Arduino Motion Mute

Every male and occasional female (send nu--never mind) has been caught, for so many nefarious things. Puberty often needs a helping hand--wait--I mean to say that there is a solution to secure your dignity from prying ears -- or eyes depending on applied hex code.

Ingredients
1. Arduino Uno (2)
2. PIR Motion Sensor Module
3. Nerf Walkie Talkies (5\$US on eBay)
4. IR LED Transmitter
6. 47 R
7. 2.2K R
8. TIP120
9. 330 R
10. 5V Relay
11. 4001 D
(Optional) Adafruit NeoPixel LED Strip, 1Knf C and 47 R

As the motion sensor is activated, the host MCU triggers the high tone pulse (morse code button) to the other walkie talkie which in turn, the alternate MCU analog reads (A0) voltage from the receiving speaker. When elevated beyond a threshold (identified here as 25) the MCU signals the IR to mute the television and optionally display a LED alert.

A note on refinement for alternative applications -- reduce the delay and transmit pulses (on/off) in Morse so as to reproduce data streams for a broader exchange.

Uh hem, adult entertainment industry, uh hem -- this thing. Eh?!

NEW Orbital Time Clock Day Adjustment
Spring is emblematic of renewal as it often identifies with foliage's return from a barren Winter landscape. It begs the question as to why, as the majority of evolved populace reside in the Northern Hemisphere, and while arbitrary, that we celebrate the initiation of the year amidst the harshest of seasons. Would it not be more conducive to revelers having the new year brought about in a more favorable atmosphere with some resemblance of association to a tangible element? Indeed, it would.

Years of developing Orbital Time as an alternative to the haphazard Gregorian calendar, has taken in to consideration a requisite conditioning - as have all things through out humanity. The mannerism of human adaptation has bestowed confidence in me to push forward a radical change to the calendar that (again) while fantasy, will demand the greatest hedging of acclimatization.

Hence forth, the New Year will commence upon the day of the Northern Hemisphere Vernal Equinox (Spring) and be accounted as Day 001. The number of days of the year will be divided by 24 hours until the following Vernal Equinox (Spring).

Upon authoring this decree, the day is presently 300 (299.7) of the year 4,574,724,016 (16.8)
