Original Poster,

Great article/tip about using PWM with a lowcost micro to do LED fade-ins and fade-outs!!

 

SoCalPE,

I see that you put lighting into furniture.  I am actively looking for artists to collaborate with for putting interactive and RGBW LEDs into artwork (yes furniture counts as artwork!!).  Check out this quick little video and let me know if you are interested in trying one of our beta prototype kits.  Thanks! -VoltVisionFrenchy

Well, I see you are still exhibiting your regular 'shocking' physical appearance! Not so sure I buy into the 'refined' part of your presentation but interesting none the less.

Dimming of model lighting

I recall a programmable, time variable, dimmer circuit that was in an old SCR applications book from the late 1960's. It did not require a programmed IC, and even more interesting, probably it could still be built today with equivalent parts readily available. Will that processor be available next year?

I'm a mechanical engineer (and I design/build furniture with built-in lighting) so I like to see these tips on electrical controls.  This reminds me of soft eject mechanisms for cassette players (maybe I'm dating myself...  :)

Looks like a poster for a bad horror movie. Definitely good staging!

This is an interesting gadget, but the real stunner here is the photo. I hope the Gadget Freak came out of it OK.

The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
Thanks to 3D printing, some custom-made prosthetic limbs, and a Lego set, one lucky dog and a tortoise has learned new tricks.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
With Radio Shack on the ropes, let's take a memory trip through the highlights of Radio Shack products.
