    Anyone here into making techy things?

    You know, wiring stuff together, interfacing lights and home appliances with your RasPi/Arduino, etc. I have a cursory interest but more on the coding side than building circuits and soldering.

    Anyone like to share their pet projects, and online communities they find useful or interesting?

    I used to build guitar stuff. Built a great distortion pedal which worked. Tried to build a wireless transmitter, but could only get it to produce frequencies that interfered with the tv signal at home.
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

      I liked the idea of tinkering - wanted to make a prototype of an idea I had. Bought the solder, some resistors and stuff from maplins etc. The next step was to get an arduino - it's been almost 3 years now and still not started - but would like to if I have the time.

          I seem to remember a couple of posters being quite in to their Pi's. MF was but he ate them all so not much use...

          Might be something fun in this lot.

              should get you started.

                I have a Pi3 Motion detection Infrared camera focussed on my SureFlap. Intruder cat has defeated chip reader and wanted to know who the burglar was🙀
