Vertical Mouse Hibachi
Having grown thru the era of computer peripherals, it is rather astonishing I have not yet lost all use of my wrist (shh!). With the discomfort of ergonomic pads and feng shui -esk body manipulation ... I relied on self control to reduce use.

Then I was incidentally introduced to the vertical mouse ... and circumstances what they are ... I desired one while unable to so disposably purchase one.

 

Immersed in boredom ... I put to work blade, solder and hot glue ... and butchered the living hell out of a mouse for sport.

Shelved - Gravity Room Agitator
The premise revolved around the common (annoying) state at which people in metropolitans (NYC in particular) live -​ locked away. With windows perpetually shut and barred and presumably the belief that air is replenished by opening the front door briefly when you come and go - this novelty project was to be a decorative dual blade room air agitator that was partially assisted by elevating a weight by way of cranking the blades with an electric motor - which then returning downward - counter spun the blades. Due to my time ending here and finding my self no longer interested and/or motivated - to hell with it [spits]


Ingredients
1. DC Motor
2. (2) Lever Switch
3. 555 IC
4. Cardboard
5. String

TVShow 3X37 Coin Cell Challenge (1) Shower Battery Charger
The entirety of projects in the Hackaday.com Coin Cell Challenge are removing energy from coin cell batteries with out giving back. Thievery! Being the kind, fair and generous human being that I am not - and instead out of spite - this project makes use of the abundance of unused kinetic energy in the bath room to recharge your coin cell battery.


Ingredients
1. LR2032 Rechargeable Coin Cell Battery
2. PVC Threaded Nipple
3. PVC Threaded Couple
4. Acrylic (Picture Frame)
5. (2) DC Motors
6. (2) Diodes

Notation(s)
1. 3D printing, efficient motors and just about every thing else - and perhaps this would be a more practical concept -- then expand that to the theory of every plumbing joint housing a generator.
2. One point not quite enough volts - motors were to blame - followed in close second by inferior glue and acrylic. It is the thought that counts [wink]
3. Per (2) - the motors were scavenged from vibrating tooth brushes - which one may presume drive very little current while operating at 1.5V - thus removing your plaque is not nearly as an aggressive of a task as is generating electricity to charge a coin cell battery.
4. Always diffuse lighting - especially when you did not.

Resistance Theory - Excited State Density
Relative to the abstract of Resistance Theory - all matter is a balanced confinement of wave(s) collision. Light is the state of residual wave refraction from these collisions - spilled thru less dense wave lengths (matter). What this then concludes is that all matter has effectively an ethereal layer that is in a transition between denser wave forms and refraction - i.e. when you are touching an object - you are not touching the visual exterior of the object - but the state just below the visualized state - as is well the density of the finger touching the object - on an infinitesimally minute level of course.

Arduino Proximity Bubbler Not Bubbler


Ingredients
1. Arduino MKR1000
2. Arduino Uno
3. Ultrasonic Module
4. Motion Sensor Module
5. Neopixel RGB Strip
6. Picture Frame Acrylic
7. 1000pf Capacitor
8. 330 Resistor
9. 10K Potentiometer

Notation(s)
1. More or less, this was to reacquaint my self with the MKR1000(s) I had been given at MakerFaire NY -- Thx Arduino's Arturo and Christina! -- using scraps being thrown out while in the process of moving [again] -- before the great war. #Project47
2. Learning to prefer to self-host IoT streams -- if better positioned, I would implore and collaborate with some one to create open-source privately hosted IoT software for your own domain - so as to permit more flexibility of function.
3. As said, only scraps -- no digital potentiometer or transistor? Hold my Don Julio -- wanting to thread 120V, we [me] improvised with a servo and hot glue. https://hackaday.io/project/27578/log/68403-no-digital-pot-or-transistor-hold-my-don-julio #Hackcycling
4. Shelved, bcz - meh.
5. The scavenged motion sensor and a-to-be-abandoned-Arduino-Uno were then applied to an entrance way motion triggered random Neopixel display.

TVShow 3X24 Arduino Decibel Spike Strip
The throaty roar of a big block thundering down a high way is to be admired - tho I prefer the more guttural growl of a Maserati. Where such a cacophony of noise and velocity is rather unwelcome is the more immediate where people live. At this point, your muscle becomes lunk. Imagine for a moment employing a device that gifts an appropriate measure of neighborly appreciation. Purely speculation, of course *sinister whisper* this time.


Ingredients
1. Arduino Uno
2. Sparkfun Sound Detector
3. Ultrasonic Module
4. Servo (2)
5. Cardboard faux Steel

Notation(s)
1. IF sound ≥ x AND distance ≥ y THEN destroy
2. IF sound ≥ x AND distance < y THEN safety
