Re: binary pocket (now wrist) watch

no, sorry, I don't have the hex file. or a programmer to dump it with. you could try asking the shop I bought it from if they'll send it to you. and yes, it's an atmega8. which is actually not very good for a watch like this due to the relatively high power consumption (a few ma). something like the...

Re: binary pocket (now wrist) watch

You can get the schematics here (I bought the atmega preprogrammed there).
Just put LEDs in place of the binary->BCD converters shown in the schematic.

Also, mine died a while ago (maybe from static?). :(
Hopefully you'll have better luck with it if you make one!

I got the sig from a 10 page packet of engineering jokes my dad brought home from work one day. Guess it runs in the family... :lol: I finally made a charging cable once the battery died (only lasted 2 days :(). I ended up hooking it up to an RC battery smart charger, which can fully charge it in ~1...

I replaced the batteries with 3 nicd AAAs (cuz I'm too cheap to buy nimhs), and added some pin headers to attach a (currently nonexistant) charging cable to. http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v1947/15/55/679473794/n679473794_1192901_7129.jpg gotta get a picture of you wearing it.

It really wasn't very hard to keep everything organized since it's so small. I didn't even go in any particular order. Though I did occasionally have to desolder and move some wires out of the way temporarily because they covering up something I was trying to get at. And I forgot to attach the top l...

Yep.

And now it's a wristwatch!

All I need to do now is add some sort of charging circuit for the batteries. Probably using USB.

binary pocket (now wrist) watch

Hey guys, I haven't posted here in ages, but I've finally finished a new project: a binary pocket watch! I figured that's portable and geeky enough to be appropriate here. :wink: And here's some pictures: http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v648/15/55/679473794/n679473794_1187432_2890.jpg Th...

My PC barely meets the system requirements. AMD 3500+ 2.2Ghz 1GB RAM 256MB Geforce 6800 GS I expected to get a slideshow at 800x600 on low quality, but I actually got really good framerates at 1024x768. And 1280x1024 was somewhat playable. I do have a rather high tolerance for low framerates, though...

It finally runs on batteries! I actually did this like 2 weeks ago, but now I've gotten around to posting some pictures of it. http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/5379/dsc01740oo2.th.jpg http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/7899/dsc01742bd1.th.jpg http://img378.imageshack.us/img378/2316/dsc01741xb6.th....

I just switched my PS3 to the benheck team (was running for hackaday before), I bet that it'll really help since it does 3 WU a day. :lol:

Is that a psone screen's AC adapter? :lol:

But still, that's pretty sweet. Especially the near-56k speeds!

That picture sure is a confidence booster! :lol:

So the protection circuit already in the batteries doesn't work if I'm running them in parallel? Where would I get a protection circuit?

Starting a SNESp

I started working on a SNESp a few days ago, and I thought I might as well make a thread on it. I bought a mini-snes from the flea market last week and ordered a psone screen from ebay to get started. As soon as the screen came in, I wired it up to the SNES with RGB and turned everything on. But ala...

On the compatability list for the generation nex , there are 21 games that don't work. The yobo supposedly has slightly better compatability, so there are probably around 15 games that don't work on it. If you want a small NES with perfect compatability, you can try to find an official toploader. Bu...
