[other parts of this series] After the breadboard version of the circuit was proven to be functional and the software I came up with was working I decided to use KiCAD to make useful schematics and design my own PCB that I can use in my Nixie Tube SoundCloud Play-Counter project. There is a really […]
[other parts of this series] By now I had two working Arduino programs (sketches) and a PHP script on my own web server. When you call it (type in it’s address: http://mixedtinkerings.com/tillefon/calcscplays.php?SCUserID=229446377&SCApiClientID=JlZIsxg2hY5WnBgtn3jfS0UYCl0K8DOg) the PHP script uses the SoundCloud API to retrieve JSON-formatted information about a user and a list of all of a user’s tracks. […]
[other parts of this series] Next I had to come up with some Arduino methods that would take a number and make a series of 0s and 1s out of it and then output those through the pins of my chip to the shift registers that are switching the Nixie digits on and off. This […]
[other parts of this series] I want to build a counter display that tells me how many people have hit PLAY on my track on SoundCloud in total in all times so far. The idea came to me when I watched Dave’s EEVblog Youtube video of his Nixie Tube subscriber display he made out of […]
This year for christmas I built a nice coat rack as a present for my sister. I thought I’d just share the idea. It’s actually really simple. All you need is a wooden board some nice-looking hooks a decorative piece of fabric or a photo that is a little larger than the piece of wood […]
I have added a new project to the site: The Tillcopter I.
Here are some random vids I made while still figuring stuff out: (very early stage) (still not much to see) (Arduino won’t run) (Arduino powered externally)
I will start blogging about the current state of my dynacho project. Once it is completed I will write a full-length article about it summing it all up into one nice package.
