Somebody suggested I ask on here because it'd likely be better than /g/, but basically I'm looking for some kind of electronics project to work on over the summer I was thinking about getting an Arduino starter kit, and working on something with that, but I'd like to have something in mind to make before I buy it. I also thought about combining a Raspberry Pi, a mini projector, and a DAC to create a listening station kind of thing that projects the album art through the projector. However, I don't know if I'd have the skill the make this happen (I know there's support for the whole playing music through the Raspberry Pi already, but I'd still have to add on the album art projector part) So basically, I'm looking for suggestions on something a beginner could do with an Arduino or Raspberry Pi, or whether or not I could realistically pursue the idea I had using the Raspberry Pi
Hey /diy/. Battery question... 7 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /diy/. Battery question here, I know you guys tend to know your stuff. I'd love some help trying to get a replacement battery for my laptop that lasts longer, and actually understand what it all means/how it works. Current battery: 11.1 volts 3500mAH 39wh Rated for 3 hours max life, I get 2. Need it for school, fixed it myself, and need it to last longer. I understand larger mAH should help, as would a higher wh. But I'm sure there's other considerations. I've found a few that say they're for the same model laptop. (vaio vpcee32fx) but have different specs. Wondering which one would work, work best, and why, if anyone can break it down for me. Others I found: 11.1V, 5800mAh, 64Wh 10.8V, 6600mAh (doesn't list Wh) 11.1V (10.8V OK) 5200mAh (doesn't list Wh) Again, some help in understanding would be awesome!

Hi /diy/ apprentice sparky britbong here. I need to remove a double socket from a downstairs ring. It was once in a wall that was knocked down and my cousin has hid it under the floor boards but obviously it can't be left there. How would I go about fixing this? Sticking it in connector block and leaving it under the floor? tl;dr How to rid a socket from a ring and is it safe under the floor?

I'd like to learn some about how man-made objects come to be. I find it strange that there generally appears to be little interest in this facet of life, when virtually everything around us was shaped by humans. The spoon that I use to eat soup - somebody was in charge of creating it; where did that begin; what was the process of creating it. Also, I'm interested in how this fits into a theory that I have about how sophisticated man-made objects subtly influence our thinking and behavior in modern times. With my generation at least, we were born surrounded by advanced technologies that are so polished, that they merge effortlessly into our picture of the natural world. In the past, it might have been easier for the mind to separate the two, but barely any conscious thought is made today about what is man-made, and what was always around. I sense that this new world might have 'muddied' the mind - there is no escape from human influence, and because our minds are sensitive enough to appreciate the concealed motivation behind the creation of an object, as well as the differing attitudes of life that radiate from say, an iPod, and a knife, this might make thinking in the modern world a bit suffocating. /diy/ might be the appropriate spot on 4chan to ask for knowledge on this subject. If you have documentaries, or videos, or something relevant, please share.

Hey guys I'm planning on making an RC fan powered car. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for where I could find what I'll need. So far I'm planning on just getting an RC car from the store and then taking the top off, removing the motor, and attaching the fan. My main concern is wiring the fan to the circuit board and a brake system. Any help?

Hey /diy/I have nowhere else... 6 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /diy/ I have nowhere else to go with this and google isn't bringing up much helpful info So I bought a second hand 3ds from a gamestore, They gave me a receipt and all that but the reason I bought this 3ds secondhand was because it had 4.5 software which I needed for the Gateway 3ds I was going to buy for it. After all of this, I was playing a game a few minutes and realized something The mother FUCKING niglet who had this 3ds before me fucked up the X button somehow and it's unresponsive unless I push on it hard. Is there anything I can do besides take this back and start a search for another rare as fuck 4.5 3ds?

I'm sure you get pretty sick of clueless people asking how they fix their stuff, but perhaps you'll have an answer or two for myself. I have a globe drinks cabinet, but due to sun exposure the map panels have faded and become separated from the top hemisphere. Any ideas on what sort of glue may be used to re-attach them? The northern hemisphere is pretty much totally unstuck panels, might be awkward to re-glue. My other Idea is just to discard the map panels and spray them hemispheres in a solid colour, maybe in a high gloss PU or cellulose paint. If I went this route would I have to prime the plastic blow that the map had been stuck to? I'm sure I would. Any advice on making this look decent in general is really appreciated. You might have an idea or two I hadn't considered yet thanks
I've been smoking... 22 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I've been smoking cigarettes for like 4 months. I hate almost all of them, but I like Camel Turkish Royals and the occasional Lucky Strike. I really want to explore other methods of smoking tobacco, because I'm a very light smoker(1-2 a day), and I do it just for the flavor. Where do I start with pipes, or any other ideas you guys might have? Cigars seem..inaccessible, but a pipe seems like a great idea if I'm just going for flavor. I won't be doing it in public, so I won't look silly, I just want to start smoking casually once or twice a day in my home. Maybe not the most appropriate thing for /diy/, but for some reason I feel like /diy/ would know a lot about pipe smoking. Seems like a very /diy/ish thing.

I wanted to fix an Ikea Solsta Gylle Chair bottom but I cant find anywhere on the internet to help me with it. I noticed that it don't have springs underneath just foam. I need some ideas on how to hold up the foam so I can sit on it again. Its my favorite chair I love to sit in and read a book. BTW the picture is what the chair looks like.
