My latest project is a vintage Brownie camera fitted with a Raspberry Pi that captures three photos and uploads a resulting GIF to my Tumblr page.
In my desire to capture more GIFs (and b-roll of using it) and discover the remaining bugs before publishing the tutorial, I took it to Maker Faire NY today, published the Instructable soon after. The project is based on Python code from Lara’s free Raspberry Pi Class on Instructables.
If I hadn’t gone to Maker Faire, all the GIFs for the project would be like this one:
more GIFs after the jump.
Here’s how I created custom vinyl stickers for my motorcycle helmet. I was inspired by hand painted helmet designs and chose brush script lettering to communicate my two most common thoughts about drivers while riding my motorcycle in NYC.
In this week’s project, I’m upgrading a vintage lamp with voice control using an Amazon Echo and ESP8266 microcontroller. Full tutorial with wiring diagram and code on Instructables.
When cherries go on sale, I always whip up at least one batch of brandied cocktail cherries. Find the complete tutorial on Instructables. The recipe is super simple:
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brandy
Whole spices like cinnamon, star anise (optional)
These cherries will keep in the fridge for several weeks, and only get better as they soak up the alcohol-sugar mixture, and besides cocktail garnishes, they make a great ice cream topping along with the liquid from the jar.
