I’ve been planning to computerize my A/C once I buy a house. I stumbled across this simple vent mod. A $10 servo was added and controlled with some off the shelf computer servo controllers. Personally, I have visions of doing this along with several 1-wire temperature sensors. Check out the DIY zoning project for more ideas along these lines.
Dammit. I’m not perfect, but I’m annoyed that despite checking for it, I missed it when part 2 of Ben Heck’s XBox 360 Laptop how-to went up. In this round there’s plenty of parts modding to do. From heat sinks to caps, you’ve got to make them all smaller.
