Rull din egen iPad-stil med en utkastende blyant
Branden skriver inn med følgende tips for å lage en rask og skitten iPad-stylus:
I saw your cute DIY hack for the Cars iPad toy and it reminded me of a quick trick for creating an iPad stylus. When all the hacks were floating around the internet right after the release of the iPad, I skipped most of them. They all involved stuff like soldering, drilling, winding wire, etc. Not fun.
A super easy way to make a stylus is to simply take a small piece of conductive foam and pinch it into the lead holder in a metal drafting pencil. You might need to experiment with different drafting pencil bodies to get it right but all of the ones on my desk work fine.
Vi har laget blyanter på hånden; nå er alt vi trenger å gjøre, gå deg rundt i verkstedet for ledende skum. Flott tips Branden!
Resirkulere og organisere ledningene dine på en gang
I’ve been using this trick for years, ever since I saw it on the tubes. I keep all my infrequently uses cables organizes with paper towel and toilet paper rolls. It’s simple really… you just gently fold the cables and tuck them in the tubes. After that you can stack the tubes (like canes in a shipping crate) inside a cardboard box. I have a couple filing boxes of neatly organizes cables in my office closet.
Vi har brukt en rekke teknikker gjennom årene, inkludert bånd og Ziplock-poser, så langt som fart går. Dette er imidlertid absolutt slått begge deler.
DIY Dirt Billige Wi-Fi-antenner
Isela skriver inn med følgende Wi-Fi-utvidende hack:
I was looking at my local electronics store for some Wi-Fi extending antennas. They wanted $50 for a high-gain pair! Since I only paid $50 for the router it seemed pretty silly to pay another $50 when I could just buy another router and set it up as a repeater for that price. I went home, did a little Googling, and found this video where a guy hacks apart one of those fancy high-gain antennas and finds that its pretty much the exactly same thing as the standard antenna except the wire is longer and has a set of coils in it. Using the video as a guide I pulled apart my existing antennas and with some scrap wire, a drop of solder, and a straw (he wasn’t kidding about the hack costing a nickel), I’ve got high-gain antennas! Score!
Vi er svært fristet til å trekke fra hverandre. Vi har alle de nødvendige komponentene: kobber, loddetråd, strå og en sunn forkledning for garantier.
