-- tell the world about your brilliant project. if it didn't blow up.
But technology changed all that, as unique projects became $5 toys from China. A lot of the enthusiast magazines disappeared or went mainstream. I went back to my regular life at my regular job building conventional devices .
It seems things are changing again, thanks to the Internet and technology . The Internet has enabled people to collaborate and share ideas from all over the world. It has brought out generosity in people which allows Web Sites like this one to run on free Open Source software. If two brains working together are better than one, how about one thousand? One million?
Please share your projects, ideas, and tips, at least the ones you're realistically never going to market. How about information about new high efficientcy, simple color LED controller chips? Compact water pumps? Motion detectors to hook up to those pumps so the neighborhood kids can beat the heat? Anyone care to make an auxiliary car horn that will politely remind drivers that it's time to go, maybe with a Road Runner "Meep Meep" sound? I'm sure some of you big-brained people out there can think of a lot more ! Buy and sell cool electro-mechanical parts with a free classified ad here!
