NeoStrips! Mazda MX-5 ND/ND2 Rear Dynamic LED Running Light Kit

I've had a fair bit of interest for the NeoStrip project I built for my Mazda MX-5 ND2, and decided to share the love by custom building a spin-off that includes numerous sequence options as well as brake modes. There are many combinations of both sequences and brake modes to suit those who like low key all the way to colourful bling and flashing brake modes. Read on for details! I'm also entertaining making this…

DIY 110dB Digital Horn: Coming Through!

I do a lot of trail riding, and being a steward of good riding etiquette, I use a digital horn (more of a "beeper") to alert hikers when I'm approaching. Most are appreciative of the gesture, and there are always some who seem to think trails are for hiking only. So, a high pitched loud chirp does the trick and also makes for a good laugh as some think it's their phones or strange birds.…

RTLapseCAM V2: Resin Printer Time-Lapse with TTGO T-Display & GoPro

Not being able to leave well enough alone, I'm onto V2 of RTLapseCAM. A quick re-cap - the purpose was to take time-lapse photos of resin prints (using layer transitions) and stitch them together into a video. In the original setup, the GoPro sat stationary and RTLapseCAM triggered the photos. The result was ok, but it just showed the print rise out of the bed. I wanted to take it to the next level by…

RTLapseCAM: Resin Printer Time-Lapse with M5Stick-C Plus & GoPro

Having recently finished my ESP32Cam time-lapse project, I wasn't overly impressed with the picture quality and was concerned over the stability of the code while running long prints. Shortly after completion, I started looking for other options and found you can control a GoPro Hero from wireless/bluetooth devices - including ESP32s, 8266's etc (yeah, it's old news but I'm on it!). The idea is straight forward - watch for a layer change via the UV…
