A/C Vent Hack for Cities That Shd Fall
Providing that this site caters to the hacking of items so as to improve upon -- and being that I currently temporarily reside in a place clustered with archaic dwellings, I thought it generous in passing to relate a means to resolve for an engineering issue many likely suffer from when living in elder metropolises.

Numerous residents are required to dangle a/c units from their windows this time of year and often times the misalignment of windows, bcz the buildings were designed and constructed by cretins, results in inefficient distribution of air.


Here, as follows, is a method to improve upon the efficiency of your air conditioning by employing nothing more than scrap cardboard, a ruler, pencil and tape.

Realize that shd some one come across this, recognize the opportunity and subsequently are able to increase the efficiency of their a/c unit, resource use may be ever so slightly reduced and the planet, saved...ish.

TVShow 3X15 Flashing Light Prize (4) Arduino Horror
Bwahahahaha and ha.
[Sinistering Intensifies]


Ingredients
1. Arduino Uno
2. HiLetgo Pulse Sensor Module
3. 5V Relay
4. Heart (4$/eBay)
5. Blair Witch Project
6. 10K Pot
7. 1K Resistor
8. NPN Transistor

Notation(s)
1. Opted to disregard specialized code/software for the reasons of code-illiteracy -- the contradiction being that the native code for the pulse sensor blinks an LED. Meh.

2. Bcz the sensor is placed on a finger with very little to ensure consistent application, the analog values varied giving irregular peak values. To adjust per each application, we (me) added a pot to adjust the peak triggering value (high).

3. The Blair Witch Project is best served when watched alone. To accompany another is to give an identifiable secured surrounding relieving the immersive stresses permitted by the film's atmosphere. It is a superb horror film you nay saying butt holes!

Never...never going to give you up.
This attempt, how ever, shd have been.

Original project had intention of dispensing compressed air in bursts to disrupt the flow...I uh, do/did not have access to such spare equipment. I welcome another with shop to give it a shot.

Special guest hallucinated appearance by @RealSexyCyborg. If (pause) only.

2. Minor adjustment to the servo delay would have drastically improved the flash rate -- how ever, timing (space use) and operational alterations tested one's patience beyond the threshold of interest (see Notation 3).

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.

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.

Go in to the light, ma'am.

Notation
Unaware of precisely what ASMR is? Our brains are triggered to auditory stimulation and with that, in a sensory over loaded environment that we have more recently created, less is now mor. A babbling brook, a calming breeze, ASMR performers are merely taking advantage of a soothing interpretation. An added caveat to the success of a performer also applies visual stimulation, giving more attractive performers a greater advantage.
