Scope Clock

scope clock
It’s official: build anything with a display tube or a rat’s nest of wires and I’m in love. The project uses a CRT intended for an oscilloscope, but it may be even easier to build if you’ve already got an old CRT scope. Full plans are on the site. Check out the other projects too. He’s got a few Nixie tube clocks with links to board suppliers; very cool.

Hackaday Monday Sipping

monday sipping

so we got hacked. whatever. ::sips coffee::

stickers and t-shirts have been shipped and they’ll be here before we leave for defcon….so that’s awesome. i’ve also noticed that a ton of you are international readers. i’m trying my best to think of ideas for you guys since you cant get postage and we have to take care of it. we’ll get it done. no worries. defcon should be very interesting after getting hacked. in a good way of course.

today my¬† friend needs bluetooth installed in his computer. you can bet that it won’t be installed without being done in some messed up way with lights and cabaret.

lemme throw you dogs some hot sausage links though.
nigerian scammers are being punished
. oh my god yes.
great guitar modding site. tons of content. [ed]
monitor consumption of your home power. pretty sweet deal if you ask me.
yet another cellphone to handset mod. this one is a bit different. [jake]
one could hardly call this impressive feat of mechanics a “case mod”. [azog]

now this i really love. someone scanned an old LP record in and used a “digital needle” to get the sound off it. how insane. [cosmo]

gen x and the clash members have this new band right? and get this: they want you to download their music for free.

as for hackaday t-shirts, this is what we have:
5 small, 20 medium, 20 large, 15 x-large.

i can say off the bat that 5 of those will be given to certain people which include eliot and i and others. that means there are 55 left. after defcon who knows how many will be left. after that, they will be awarded, not given out. t-shirts cost money to make and we can’t take your money. so thus, expect to see some contests popping up very soon. speaking of which.

today is the end of the contest for a sub-$100 laptop. who has done it? if you have, e-mail (a link to if possible) pics, an about page, and a price list of parts used. we want to see what’s up. the winner will get hackaday fame, some good prizes which will include a t-shirt, stickers, and buttons, and other stuff. you have until 11:59pm to submit submissions. good luck.
