Building a Monome clone using a Trellis board from adafruit. Works great, just don’t quite like the LEDs yet. Need to do some looking around for other LED options, or hacks to make the LEDs have a wider angle.
Did some work on my CNC mill on Saturday. Finally hooked up all motors to the controller board, and then made the machine draw some stuff.
Still need to add some cooling to the stepper drivers, clean up the cable work, add a case for the electronics, and so much more…
First shot a a DIY ClassD Amp. Circuit designed by Rouslan Dimitrov
After screwing up a bunch of things in the board design, I finally got it to work. Sounded pretty crappy, and the MOSFETs got somewhat hot. Well, at least one of them. Was to tired to check what was going on, but just glad I finally got this one built and in a somehow working condition.
Got my SmartCitizen Kit today. It’s basically an Arduino with Wifi and sensors for light, noise, temperature, humidity, CO and NO2. It was somewhat difficult to setup, but now it’s working and posting AirQuality data from my window ledge (currently only inside, as I don’t have a case for it yet). Check out my data over at smartcitizen.me
It doesn’t matter how little space you have, there is always space for growing!
I’d love to grow some food. Just not sure this place is up for it, with me traveling all the time.
Cherry tomato pasta sauce
Made a really simple cherry tomato sauce the other day. I had bought a 250g pack of cherry tomatoes, and couldn’t remember what for. So I took them all and cut them up into pieces. Took half an onion, diced that, and roasted it in a pot with some olive oil, until glassy. Then through in the tomatoes. Let it cook for a while. Then add some salt, pepper, herbs, and chili. Finish with a splash of cream, and you have a really tasty sauce for spaghetti and other pasta, in little to no time.
