  1. DIY IED Bomb Detecting RC Car! - 2011-08-08 21:00:40-04


    Above video is an illustration of a real IED (Improvised Explosive Device) going off in Afghanistan. As you can imagine when that IED bomb hits a humvee, it’s not going to stay in one piece nor the soldiers inside it. Well, there’s a solution to that, build a bomb-detecting DIY RC car. …team is trained to be on the lookout for roadside bombs, but [Ernie] wanted to sent him something cool that could also keep him safe. By adding a camera to the hood of the Traxxis Stampede and using a gun-mountable LCD screen, the soldiers now have a way to see what's on the road ahead from their armored Humvee. Sounds like it would work just fine right? Well the hack just got a big endorsement when it tripped an IED made of around 500 pounds of explosives. [Chris] and five other soldiers on patrol were unharmed in the event, and [Ernie] already has a replacement model on the way. Better yet, it would be cool if the army can devise a new RC flying helicopter that uses infrared sensors to detect bombs, flying in front of the humvees.

  3. iOS5 Beta 5 Gets Jailbreak! - 2011-08-09 13:27:53-04


    iOS5 Beta 5 finally gets jailbroken, of course this isn’t a full jailbreak rather a “tethered” jailbreak meant for jailbroken app developers. For all of you interested in early-adoption of the jailbreak, check out the Dev Team Blog. THIS IS A TETHERED JAILBREAK ONLY! No new exploits are being exposed with this jailbreak (it uses geohot's limera1n bootrom exploit), but that comes at a cost. You will need to use redsn0w to "Just boot tethered now" to be able to use many things, including Cydia and Safari. If you see a white icon for Cydia, or if Cydia or Safari crash when you open them, it's because you didn't boot tethered. via engadget This post iOS5 Beta 5 Gets Jailbreak! was originally from zedomax.com Apple, Featured Hacks, ios5 beta 5, ios5 jailbreak, technology

  4. Langlee Wave Energy to Power Converter! - 2011-08-09 15:28:41-04


    Back in 2009, we did go over the Oyster Wave Energy Converter, here’s another good candidate for converting ocean waves into energy. Imagine this, earth is made up mostly of water and even if we utilized a small number of the raw power from waves, we could essentially power the whole earth! The only problem? The cost to make these wave energy converters. At first, it’s going to be billions of dollars but in the long run wave energy could be powering everything at cost of almost nothing. via hackedgadgets, Langlee Wave Energy This post Langlee Wave Energy to Power Converter! was originally from zedomax.com Earth, Energy, Featured, Featured Earth, langlee wave energy, wave energy

  5. How to Make a DIY PID-Controlled Crock Pot! - 2011-08-09 17:35:35-04


    One of the coolest devices for cooking and brewing is a temperature-controlled crock pot.  I actually have a similar project that I am working on using a PID to control the temperature of my Korean rice wine that I brew at home but you can use this example of a DIY PID-controlled crock pot for many applications. There are some home appliances you simply can’t buy (way too expensive) but you can make them yourself using a PID controller. What is a PID controller? PID controller is basically a piece of computer that can control temperature of another electronic device precisely and accurately in layman’s terms.  Most PIDs are used for industrial purposes, like keeping the temperature right for making soup at the soup factory.  But PID can be very useful as this project shows you. via hackaday, Project Page This post How to Make a DIY PID-Controlled Crock Pot! was originally from zedomax.com crock pot, DIY, diy pid, Featured, Featured DIYs, Featured Gadgets, Featured Hacks, Gadgets, Hack, how-to, HOWTO, Microcontroller, Projects
