  • Torque: DIY All Terrain Electric Longboard

    What kind of charging box are you using? I see you left battery connector out of the cover box.

    Had anyone tried the Graphene accus that are coming now? 50 usd more but suppose to be charged in 1/10 time.see on hobbyking.com: "turnigy graphene 12000mah.."

  • Easy IoT weather station with multiple sensors (enchanced 1)

    I have not done it, but definitelly possible with delay() command. Or another possibility, I red somewhere that you can programmatically make reset of the board by connecting reset button to a digital output. So you can reset the board (hard-core sleep) so it will consume less energy. You should search for that solution.

  • Easy IoT weather station with multiple sensors

    Oooo, thanks. I found that Adafruit's board. .... BUT, It is so expensive (17 usd direct or 30 euro on Amazon.de) !!!!I rather consider to take a ready accu+integrated solar panel for 15 euro, available also in outdoor waterproof package.Have you considered that ?

  • ESP8266 and Visuino: DHT11 Temperature and Humidity Web Server

    Great Instructable!!! Worked from the first shoot!!! Thanks a lot.Notes: I did not manage to connect with the "server name" in local network, but worked fine with IP address. Need to assign a fix IP and already have access to it from external network over port-forwarding setup on router.p.s. next step is to add a timestamp into the webpage... working on that myself with module DS1302)

  • Easy IoT weather station with multiple sensors

    Thanks a lot!!! I followed instructions and had a great experience with my first IoT project.Unfortunatelly it did not work as-is, while:1. I used the only DHT11 sensor and no other - script was not working at runtime2. some libraries were not loadable as per instuction, needed to play aroundOverall was original Instructables are great!!!I posted my personal Instructables with missing (or corrected) steps, tested with 2 boards (ESP12E DEVKIT V2, NodeMCU AMICA)You can find mine here:http://instructables.com/id/Easy-IoT-Weather-Station-With-Multiple-Sensors-enc

    Interesting!!! Did you build also charging of the accu with solar panel? I am very interested in that!!!

    Arduino / Processing Audio Spectrum Analyzer

    I was excited to read the article, wow arduino and analyzes the audio.... but unfortunatelly it is not - the name is misleading. Arduino is used just to show LED matrix. What a pity...p.s. I am considering to make a project "Arduino + audio analyzer chip". But is becomes very expensive..... I should go back to old fashion several "resistors+inductions" audio solution :-)
