Since almost everybody doesn’t like to wake up (early) in the morning I thought I had to do something to get me out of bed with more ease… A few years a purchased a wake-up light which just wakes you with a lamp that shines brighter and brighter until it is a 100% of brightness over a period of a half a hour. The idea is that you wake up earlier and rested. This worked for me for about a month and after that it waked me but I was very slumbered.
So I had to think of another thing to wake up easier… I came up with the idea of making the motivation of getting out of bed higher. This, I thought for me, can be done by fresh baked baguette and eggs. Read the rest of this entry »

A quick post. Today, 2th Easter day, I was cleaning up my room, throwing away some stuff I don’t use any more. I also found a whole set of parts for the robotics arm I made some time ago; Here and here;
I was going to throw them away, or one of you guys want to have ‘em? Post a comment with e-mail and I can send the set to you for shipping costs only. Oh yeah and this is a milled set so there extra beautiful!
All the 5 set’s I had are given away, have fun with it! I’d love to see pictures of what you do with it!
Aka, A SmartAss:
This last semester I studied the minor “Embedded Systems” on my university, in this minor you learn a lot about most of the thing I count as my hobby; Electronics and programming. The minor takes a half a year and you have to do a certain project that takes about a half a year. The project I and a friend chose was a bit different, but a really cool one; The Avans Smart Assistant! Read the rest of this entry »
It has been some time since I posted something but i’m really busy since this is my final year of school. I have been busy for school but of course also making things! Currently i’m working on my new 3d printer, a prusa mendel and some other small projects like this one.
I do have a Ultimaker and thought I wanted to try out a heated bed because I have some trouble on bigger prints, warping etc. so I thought about it and took a standard 100x160mm pcb and designed a pattern in eagle to mill and make a heated plate/bed. I couldn’t find a heated bed designed these dimensions (since this is a standard pcb size?) Also, I could buy a heated bed, and maybe I will buy it for my mendel, but for now I just wanted to try it out. Read the rest of this entry »
Just a quick post..
I recently got like 15 webkey devices and here’s how to make them direct them to your own site, make them start a program or your mail or whatever. But first, what is a webkey? As you can see on the picture these are like some sort of buttons with a USB cable on it.
A webkey is a device which you plug into you USB port and says it is a HID (keyboard) device which starts the “run” prompt if you push the button (under which is actually a real push-button), then it “types” a website and “pushes” enter and starts the website. Read the rest of this entry »

Today I finally got the chance to show you one of my latest projects, the automation of my bedroom, a domotica controlled room. In this post I will guide you trough the process I went through making this possible:
Well how did I managed to do that? Read the rest of this entry »
Today I thought it would be a good idea to make A sd-card reader as an extension for my Ultimaker, I designed it for the newer electronics which can use the SPI pins because there is a break out to an expansion header. Because I printed a prusa mendel on my Ultimaker a few weeks ago and I’m aiming to use Ultimaker electronics for it the new printer. Read the rest of this entry »
