Novos Materiais. Blast, Um Écran TFT no Arduino, e um Órgão em PVC!!!

Cá vão três novos Materiais, de seguida:

Um novo Acrílico da Inventables, que é particularmente difusor da luz que recebe, pelas arestas e gravuras:

EndLighten Acrylic Sheet

Extruded sheets with light diffusing particles

These Acrylite LED EndLighten extruded acrylic sheets (L Grade, 0.236 in thick) diffuse light, especially from LEDs. When edge-lit, the light is redirected to the surface of the sheet, creating a uniform glow that is 250% brighter when viewed from the front. For a simple lighting solution that requires no wiring, please check out our 8 colors of Powered LED Strips.
For ideal illumination, your light source should be 0.040” – 0.118” (1 – 3 mm) from the edge of the acrylic sheet. Any edges that aren’t lit should be covered with reflective tape to prevent light from escaping. Smooth edges, accomplished through polishing or laser cutting, help keep the lighting uniform. At least 1 side of the acrylic should have a radiant surface.

A Cubify oferece-vos Cerâmica, mas Cerâmica, a sério, até podem aquecer, e servir Comida, nela!

Cubify Ceramix

This material is created using Colorjet Printing (CJP) which deposits powder. Ceramic post-processing solidifies the model, after which a glaze is applied in various colors.
Glossy, heat proof, recyclable and food-safe, this material is perfect for statues, eating ware and ornaments.


E para as vossas Engenhocas Electrónicas, que tal, este Acrílico anti-estático, para não fritarem os vossoe Chips?


NEW material for laser cutting — anti-static acrylic

Attention all you DIY electronics geeks, we’ve just added a new material perfect for your enclosures.
This clear, anti-static acrylic has a special surface coating that will help keep your electronics safe from damage caused by static discharge.
Any enclosure or insulator has a tendency to build up a static charge when it’s moved. If the electronics are assembled in an enclosure and never messed with again, regular acrylic materials are fine.
But if you’re moving the electronics around a lot and accessing the internal circuits with test equipment on occasion, static build-up can be a problem for those sensitive electronics. Anti-static acrylic will help keep your electronics development running smoothly, even when software engineers start digging into the hardware.
It also attracts less dust, so your projects will be lookin’ clean.


Para a pura diversão Geek, e notícias, eis o novo visual do Blast, o Blogue das Combat Creatures


Welcome to the new look Blast! 

This is the first edition of the new look Combat Creatures news blast. This year we will be sending you bi-weekly updates with all things Combat Creatures, awesome blogs from inventor Jaimie Mantzel and some super cool Combat Creatures Construct projects, teaching you to build your very own toys. We will occasionaly be sharing competitions, events and anything that we find in the robotics world that we think you lot would be interested in too! In this edition Jaimie talks about how he built his own boat, we have Construct project #1 and Combat Creatures news.


Your Image on an Arduino! - TFT LCD Screen Guide


Have you ever heard of TFT LCD screens?  They are great ways to display information from your Arduino, or display pictures.  The Arduino team just released an official TFT LCD screen with their new Robot at Maker Faire 2013.  It's very easy to get started with!!  This tutorial will show you how to get the LCD up and running, load information from the SD card, and make a few simple projects.

The TFT LCD screen is a great way to detach your computer, and have the Arduino relay information that you need to know onto the LCD.  A great part of the LCD is that it has a built in microSD card socket.  You can store images on the microSD card socket, and even some text!

E por hoje, acabamos com este fantástico Órgão de Tubos de PVC!

PVC Pipe organ

 by bugman113

In this Instructable I will be taking you through the steps of making a simple PVC pipe organ. We'll learn how to make the flutes, tune them, make a body for the instrument, and connect the pipes to keys. Please remember that you are only limited by your creative mind and time constraints in my case, this is only to provide a basic idea on how to make these and expanding upon these ideas is encouraged to make an instrument of your very own. (Builder's note) If you don't want to spend too much money, but want to try this out I suggest keeping the size of the instrument to a minimum, don't build a full pipe organ if you aren't willing to spend the money on some of the materials.
