This is my first movie on diy stuff. Movies are a much better way to teach people on doing stuff because they can see the details and watch the steps in the movie much easier than reading some boring text. In this first movie i am teaching you how to increase your wireless signal strength using just a soda can. Here is how it works: the shape of the can and the materials that is made from concentrate the signal and this is how you get an increased signal. Good luck building it.

BLUI: Blowable user interface

We have to ask ourselves , is this the future in user interfaces ? maybe yes. Students at Georgia Tech have created an audio analysis program that lets you blow at your computer as a way to control it. It only uses one microphone, and after a quick calibration, it’s ready to go.

This is a way to support blowing at a laptop or computer screen to directly control certain interactive applications. Localization estimates are produced in real-time to determine where on the screen the person is blowing. You can do this by using a single microphone, such as those that are already embedded in a standard laptop or one placed near a computer monitor by using audio fingerprinting.

Build a Blu Ray Phaser

Very original idea , and i think i don’t need to say any more how cool is this blu-ray laser which is much powerful than ordinary lasers. I like lasers, but i’m trying to keep costs low when building projects, and this one is a bit expensive, however if you like this you can try build it, i am sure it will be nice.
