I am to the physical build part of a 24 inch by 72 inch infinity mirror.
Here is the workbench and the plastics ready to unwrap. Below is the unwrapped plastics after I discovered that I did not get all of them and three are the wrong size.
These problems mean that I am done for the night and cannot assemble any parts for now.
I will go talk to the plastics place tomorrow to see about correcting the problem.
There is an ancient sensor system at work that detects if a golf ball goes through a certain hole and is connected to a doorbell. This past winter the system get wet and died. I am working on designing a system that will replace the existing one with one that has a more useful feature set.
The current feature set includes:
- optical sensing (old physical switches get bent by the balls and stop working)
- motion sensor (detect people crawling into the area to cheat)
- local alarm for cheaters
- local announcement of winner
- remote display of winners
- remote display of cheating
- wireless to allow remote display to be moved as needed.
- expandable wireless network to allow future addition of other nodes to enhance appearance of courses.
I am working on the prototypes of the sensor node and the display node. I recently received two Adafruit Feather 32u4 RFM95 LoRa Radios and am working on code to use to test the range with the buildings involved. I want to set up code that does not require a computer connected or a complex display to indicate a good connection. I am currently using the RadioHead Library for Arduino to control the radios.
Due to changes in web hosting future posts about photography will be at our main photography business site A Moment of Time Photography. Thank you for following my photography projects here and I look forward to your comments at the new blog.
I will post more about my art and electronics projects here and will eventually rename this blog. I just need to remember to document projects better to share with those that are interested.
