Type a keyword, eg. "PAX", "room divider" & find it
Amazing! It might have taken a hell lot of time to make the alignments and angles right.
Too bad this guy doesn't sell these! Would love one of these!
So would I. It is nothing short of exquisite.
I think the most important part is the bottle of Heinecken. Therefor I like that project really much! Prost...
Ha ha! Germans. :) Prost!
Thank goodness for the Dutch.. Heineken!
Shouldn't the minutes start from 0 instead of 1?
Nice idea, but I think that it will be better on a panel
It is definitely cool, but its a shame to have to look at that power cord, especially on something so futuristic. I would think there would be a way to power it with battery's or maybe wirelessly? Any Electronic guys out there?TIA
If it were on a panel the cord could be threaded behind it to solve that problem easily. I'd just like to know how the lasers move to the time.
I'm confused.....how do the lasers move on this?
Oh, I don't understand that either. Can someone please explain?
I guess the servo motors do the trick in this one, letting the lasers move on a programmed time and snap to 1 again. D.
Aren't the lasers in a fixed position, each just bouncing a beam off a 'rotating arm', each arm separately programmed to move? Anyway, that's how I would go about it.
This project uses a microcontroller board called Arduino as mentioned in the description above.The board is programmed to control the two servo motors. The lasers attached to the servo motor arms point in the direction as determined by the Arduino board logic.This isn't simply a assemble it yourself project, requires a bit of electronics, maybe a little soldering and definitely a little programming. No significant wizardry though, nothing that'll take more than a few days to learn with the help of the internets.The arduino can keep track of elapsed time with an accuracy of plus or minus a few seconds each day, but doesn't have a way to tell what time of the day it is. The initial time will have to be set while it is still attached to a computer, and will have to be reset that way if it goes out of sync.I haven't done this but am actively considering doing it, if someone wants help or wants to collaborate, drop me an email foragerr at gmail dot com
