The various projects I have entertained myself with include:
I’ve built a Quadcopter / Multicopter / Drone, and will one day put FPV on it.
One is using the PiNoir Camera to become a simple low-power webcam. The other is tracking the temperature in my daughter’s nursery.
It all came about after seeing the burgeoning interest in using SketchUp to design and model custom-build PCs – the hobby (and now profession to some) called ‘modding’.
At first I just started a thread in the bit-tech.net forums, but it quickly became disorganised and it was difficult to actually find the components. It was suggested that they be better organised, and I figured I should have a go at just that.
It started as an Access/ASP mess of code, but I then had to move host. The SCC is now a MySQL/PHP mess of code instead, though it does get the occasional tidy.
There are now more than 600 items.
(moved to my personal space for posterity)
I created a Google-Maps “mashup” for Carbon360 Ltd (now sadly gone). Using official data from the DTI it dynamically shows the top 20 carbon dioxide emitters in the visible area. (There are ~1070 emitters in the UK registered under the EUETS.)
