The Sticky: /Δ/ 2.0This is new /Δ/, also addressable as /diy/, the projects board. The intent is that this board will be used to share and discuss physical building projects and other creations not suitable on other boards, such as cooking, automobile work, structural modifications to buildings, metal working, and circuitry design.
Ghetto Wine-MakingSo I'm in the dorms at a US college and since I'm pretty nerdy and socially awkward like most of us, there's really no opportunities to get alcohol until I'm 21. So I decided to take the DIY approach.
DIY VRI been thinking about ways to build a VR system without having to pay a shitton of money for a headset
Salvaging scrap techGot my hands on about 30-40 hdds all with holes through the disk.
Electrical engineering threadfigured this should go here, better than anywhere else. I'm getting a little starter pack of electrical components from eBay soon: resistors, potentiometers, LEDs, a breadboard, an arduino, etc. there are lots of cool projects online that I've been aching to try out. recently my FM transmitter I used for listening to music in my car gave up the ghost so now I have that to salvage components from. the AAA battery case and aux cord are of particular interest to me.
Raspberry Pi Laptop Project IdeasSo, I want to build a laptop case with a small screen and plop a Raspberry Pi 3 in it. I'm aware of things like PiTop but I want to build this myself. You can already buy little ass screens made just for RasPi3s. Any ideas guys?
Meme fashionI have come to the conclusion that instead of buying boring 'designer' t-shirts that I will probably rarely wear because I don't like them anyways I should rather just make my own t-shirt designs and print them at local stores.

DIY 3D printerHi Lains,

ITT: Share DIY information/links/etcI'll post a good resource for DIY and more:
Long Ranged Comms.Hello, if I wanted to maintain constant radio contact with a device 15km (~9 miles) away, and I had no guarantee of line of sight, what would be the best way of achieving it?
It's not good place to ask at all, but considering i saw pcr thread here i might as well ask.
Laptop battery hotswappingSo, I want to be able to hotswap batteries in my thinkpad. My idea was to use a supercapacitor; I only need enough time to pull one battery out and put in another.
Making a comfy rooftop "den" for studyingI recently found that the lock on a fire escape near my house in London has rusted off, and so it is now very easy to get to the roof of this 6 storey building by climbing some steps and a couple of ladders. The roof is mostly flat with a chimneystack in the corner, and has a hot air vent which makes it comfy and warm even in the winter.
can anyone explain this to me?how do I know how big a capacitor to use; what purpose does the Atmel AVRtiny serve?
Mobile homesSo I'm thinking up a couple different ways to make a cheap mobile home and want some advice. Whatever I pick I'd be putting in most of the modern comforts like a stove/oven, refrigerator/freezer, rv hookup, sink, small shower along with fresh and gray water tanks, plumbing, small water heater, portable toilet, propane, electrical, insulation, cheap hardwood flooring, a window ac unit, a desk with computer stuff, bed, storage, couch, etc. Looking for something on the larger side or long term comfort. Basically a inexpensive tiny home on wheels. I’d be doing all the work myself. Here's what I've come up with.

Scrap Building General /SBG/Hello, lain anons.
3D Printing GeneralThere are a couple threads, but they're not general.
nokoThis is similar to one of the concerns over net neutrality. People are worried that, if they could, internet companies would make a budget version of the internet for a really good price and then once it has wide adoption, they slowly raise the price back up to what the full package was, while the price of the full package increases to the point that most people can't reasonable afford it. Meanwhile the websites in the basic package pay the cable company for the privileged of being included. It's really good for the cable company and absolutely terrible for everyone else since we are paying a similar price for a worse product and it stifles innovation by increasing the cost to even compete.

Parallel computingHi, Lainons.
How to make my own Electronic assistant?So, I've been trying to find some new project to do in my spare time. And I got really excited with the idea of a little humanoid kind of robot, that could also help me as an assistant for everyday jobs. I want it to be connected to my computer and my room.

Lainchan ProjectsHello lains. I really liked the idea of the Weekly Project and started to think about the possibilities.
So I want to move, but not rent anymore. Can we have another van build thread please? I need a few things for myself.
i3wm internet kioskI think one could make a good internet kiosk with i3wm... as in one could lock it up to a browser pretty nicely. I haven't done this myself so I will just generalise the steps...
