Apricot Mustard

There are many ways to mill mustard seeds, but the best options to do this at home is either freezing them beforehand or soaking them in white wine vinegar. Take a glass jar and fill it with 160grams mustard seeds. Then add 350ml of white wine vinegar. The remaining 10ml will be added later on top for preservation. Remove black or broken seeds. The jar needs to be stored in a cold place for 3 days, not fully covered. Original link

Control AC Appliances Sitting on Your Bed

Out of many options available for going wireless like Radio Frequency, Bluetooth, I chose the simplest one i.e. Infrared. The concept is, using an Arduino and an IR receiver, I will distinguish the IR codes of different buttons of an IR remote. And after comparing the codes with predefined ones, I will turn on or off different appliances according to the buttons pressed. We can control almost any number of appliance using a shift register, ...

An Electric Musical Instrument 3D Printed Amplifier.

Basics. The amplifier is to hold within itself: two speakers, a PSU, amplifier electronics, cables, an input jack and a volume knob. I started by copying the sketch used to model the speaker, making two copies and then separating them making sure to leave enough space between them for the 10k Pot. I added circles for screws, and added outer circles to represent the screw caps. Superior Sound Quality. I wanted to have free movement of air ar...

Table Organizer Inspired by Scandinavian Design

I guess I could have just glued all the sheets together and then used a router to make the holes I need, but I didn't. I decided to first glue together the two sheets that will be placed on top of the block. Before gluing the strips I had to make 2 wide holes to the top strip. Those I would use for my phone and a pocket sized notebook. I measured the holes so that my phone would sit there both vertically and horizontally in slight angle jus...

Discus Launch Glider Build

The thought that one can hand launch a model glider to 100-200ft altitude seems amazing – but is possible with Discus Launch Gliders (DLGs). To launch one holds the glider by a finger grip on a wing tip and then one spins around as throwing a discus. In order to get to 200ft the glider needs to be launched at >80mph, and the g force in the rotation is over 25g. This is a little faster than a discus (~55mph) but the glider is 6 times ligh...

Slide to WATER SLIDE!!!!

I grabbed a leftover piece of 1/2" pvc about 3' long, a cap, and a threaded end piece for it, and finally one of the water ballon fillers. I took the tip off the water ballon filler and opened the hole so I could slide it over the end of the threaded piece. I cut down the threaded end to only 2 threads left on so when I attach the hose it won't be in the way. Like I said these are pieces I had in the house. If you purchase the pieces I'm su...

Omnik Inverter Off It's Cloud and on My MQTT

The code outputs a bit of debugging data, so if something is not working, simply hook up the WeMos to your PC again, start the Arduino IDE and press CTRL+SHFT+M to start a serial console. Make sure the speed is set to 115200. You can either use your own broker, or use a cloud based service. I run my own, Mosquitto installed on my Synology NAS. If you are OK with a cloud service, you can use Adafruit or Amazon AWS or any other one. The messa...

"Hot-Car Death" Alarm System

Before we start, a few words on what led me to make this instructable. I live in Israel, it's a fairly hot country and June-August are a kind of an endless heatwave. Every year, in Israel alone, approximately 10 babies die of Heatstroke as they are left stranded in the back seat of a car. Israel is a small country, just short of 8 million people. Yen in this case 1 in a million is way too much! 2 years ago i became a father, a responsible o...

Create FlipCover for Dual Screen Phone/ Uncommon Phone From Other Phone's Flipcover (No Sew)

Dual-screen phones are not exactly common in the market (there are currently less than 5 of them), and the market itself is not big enough, so it's understandable that the choice for accessories are rather limited. I'm always a big fan of flipcovers (all my gadgets are inside their own flipcovers). Other than its ability to protect my phone and my phone screen, leather or faux-leather flipcover are usually waterproof, and sleek in appearanc...

Stabilize Sensor Readings With Kalman Filter

We are using various kinds of electronic sensors for our projects day to day. IMU, Ultrasonic Distance Sensor, Infrared Sensor, Light Sensor are some of them. Most of the times we have to use a processing unit such as an Arduino board, a microcontroller chip to process the sensor data and get corresponding outputs. If we observe these readings we can identify that those are not very stable and contains noise. If we use these noisy and unsta...

Image to Low Poly Vector Art

To create the framework, Inkscape uses a plugin that generates a path between objects. Make sure to save before this step! Using the selection tool, drag a selection box over all of the dots (but not your image), then go to the drop down menu "Extensions", "Generate From Path", and "Voronoi Diagram". This will open a menu, where "Delaunay Triangulation" should be selected from "Type of diagram". Upon clicking apply, Inkscape may freeze up f...
