    When you’re talking about optics, things are often happening on a nanometer scale. This means that even the slightest amount of vibration can spoil delicate work. [The Thought Emporium] is working on a long-scale project to produce chocolate holograms, and needed a stable surface to set up some optical components. Thus, he decided to build a magnetically levitated laser table. The build starts with a series of eight machined delrin bushings, each mounting a strong neodymium ring magnet. Four are placed on the base, with a thin steel rod protruding upwards. The other four bushings are then (...) -- Laser Hacks, laser, laser table, optical table

    Even if you wouldn’t describe yourself as a history buff, you’re likely familiar with the Enigma machine from World War II. This early electromechanical encryption device was used extensively by Nazi Germany to confound Allied attempts to eavesdrop on their communications, and the incredible effort put in by cryptologists such as Alan Turing to crack the coded messages it created before the end of the War has been the inspiration for several books and movies. But did you know that there were actually several offshoots of the “standard” Enigma? For their entry into the 2019 Hackaday Prize, (...) -- HackadayPrize2019,

    One of the more disappointing news stories of 2019 was the fire at the Notre Dame cathedral. Widely considered a building of great historical importance and architectural merit, it was heavily damaged and will take significant time and resources to repair. Fundamentally though, if you’re reading this, that’s probably someone else’s job. Instead, why not just build your own Notre Dame out of gingerbread at home? [Scott Hasse] did just that. The stained glass windows are the real party piece of the build. The project began by using an existing papercraft model. This had to be heavily modified (...) -- cooking hacks, gingerbread, gingerbread house, Notre Dame

    This booth was easy to miss at Maker Faire Bay Area 2019 amidst tall professional conference signage erected by adjacent exhibitors. It showcased the work of [Dr. Victor Chaney] who enjoys his day job as a dentist and thus feels no desire to commercialize his inventions — he’s building fun projects for the sake of personal enjoyment which he simply calls Vic’s Creations. Each project is built to his own standards, which are evidently quite high judging by the perfect glossy finish on every custom wood enclosure. Some of these creations were aligned with his musical interests.

    First soldering irons are often of the Radioshack or Maplin firestarter variety. They’re basically wall power shorted across a nichrome heater or similar with some inline resistance to make it harder to burn down the house. You plug them in, the current flows, and they get hot. Done. If you stick with the hobby for a while, these eventually get replaced with something like the venerable HAKKO FX-888D or that one Weller everyone likes with the analog knob. These are much improved; having temperature control leads to a more consistently heated tip and much improved soldering experience. (...) -- hardware, Repair Hacks, Hakko, metcal, replacement, reverse engineering, rf soldering, soldering, soldering station, Weller

    Thrust vectoring is one way to control aerial vehicles. It’s become more popular as technology advances, finding applications on fifth-generation fighter aircraft, as well as long being used in space programmes the world over.[RCLifeOn] decided to try and bring the technology to a prop-powered RC aircraft, in an unconventional way. After attending a lecture on compliant mechanisms and their potential use in space vehicles for thrust vectoring control, [RCLifeOn] decided to try applying the concept himself.

    Stepper motors are great for projects that require accurate control of motion. 3D printers, CNC machines and plotters are often built using these useful devices. [InventorArtist] built a stepper-based cycloid drawing machine, and made use of a nifty little hack along the way. The machine uses a rotating turntable to spin a piece of drawing paper. A pen is then placed in a pantograph mechanism, controlled by another two stepper motors. The build uses the common 28BYJ-48 motor, which are a unipolar, 5-wire design. A common hack is to open these motors up and cut a trace in order to convert (...) -- classic hacks, cycloid, cycloidal, pantograph, spirograph, stepper motor

    We spend all day communicating, and we’ve invented myriad ways to do it. You can buy a stamp, press a button, rent a room or use a microphone. Choose wisely. Don’t send an email when you should pick up the phone instead. Don’t send a text when an email makes more sense. Don’t have a meeting when a memo is more likely to get the point across. Don’t give a speech when a blog post would reach more people with more impact. And don’t write it down when it’s better said live…       (...) -- Uncategorized

    "Eating Things," a Youtube channel usually dedicated to making videos about eating incongruous meals in the middle of famous movie scenes, leveled up with a deepfake featuring Jon Snow apologizing for Season 8 of Game of Thrones. The voice sounds so similar to Kit Harington's Jon Snow accent it's hard to discern it from the real thing, except when the (former) King in the North mentions the Starbucks cup and apologizes for wasting viewers' time with the final season.

    Genius is, well, genius. The company recently accused Google of lifting song lyrics from its site, reports the Wall Street Journal.  How did Genius know Google was stealing? In 2016, Genius made a few changes to the punctuation in its song lyrics. Sometimes, it used a straight apostrophe. Other times, a curly one.  Genius did this in a very specific sequence because (are you ready for this?) when "the two types of apostrophes were converted to the dots and dashes used in Morse code, they spelled out the words 'Red Handed.'"

    On an otherwise normal, sunny day, a bird of prey rode around on the hood of a moving car near downtown Los Angeles. The hawk, likely a red-tailed hawk common to the city, landed on the car and wouldn't budge for 15 minutes, reports The Eastsider. The bird didn't move even as the car drove through the city's palm-lined streets. "He's staring at us like he's staring into our souls," one of the passengers says in a YouTube video documenting the incident. It may have been a younger, immature bird, exploring its urban world.
