Wireless Encoded Motor Controller

posted Feb 19, 2012, 9:01 PM by Kunal Doshi

This project was conceived on the request of a friend. Who wanted to control a set a vibration motors using a remote control. His special request was that the communication is encrypted so that the motors are not turned on accidently by other wireless remote. 

I had a bunch Xbees lying around ( just perfect for this task :D )

Check out flickr blog with pics and circuit diagram

Retro Clock

While at an art exhibition I was influenced by a clock exhibit made out of old gramophone records. I wanted to re-visit it as it fit exactly into the concept of re-use/recycle.  Here's my reproduction of it. 

The black one is like a flower with 12 petals representing the 12 hours while the other one is my tribute to the old game of Pacman!!
