DIY LIPO Battery Spot Welding

at 11:19 pm. Filed under Crazy Hacks, DIY Hacks

 

WeAreTheWatt is building a DIY LIPO Battery Spot Welding project. The construction is very nice. The PCB is very well laid out but of course even with a very heavy copper clad board it would not be able to handle the amount of current he needs. Heavy bus bars are used to pass the current through the fuse and across the switching transistors. There is a foot pedal activation method or a neat self detection method which watches for the leads being pressed against the thing to be welded and then passes the desired amount of energy.

Laptop Hacked into a Cool Desktop PC

at 11:11 pm. Filed under Computer Hacks

 

 

DIY Perks hacked an old damaged laptop into a great looking desktop PC. The PC used has a damaged screen and was purchased for just $15. The guts were removed from the plastic laptop case but when exposed the tiny existing processor fan and heatsink was very loud. Replacing the fan and heatsink with a larger unit the system is now silent. The end result is a great looking veneered piece of art that also functions as a PC.

Safe Cracking Robot

We have seen safe cracking robots before but they never get old. The guys at Spark Fun made a great one. It would be funny to  see a CCTV video of a vault heist that uses some technology like this. The safe cracker could setup his rig and read a magazine while the technology did the hard work.

“Nathan Seidle’s wife gave him this already locked safe as a gift with no combination. Weird present, but he loves a good challenge. So he built a safecracking robot.”
