    Closed: Re: Extracting energy from gyroscope precession

    I'm sorry, P99 but, IMHO, as soon as you connect any constraining mechanism to the precessing axle, and begin to extract work from system via that precession, the dynamics are totally changed.

    Closed: Re: Extracting energy from gyroscope precession

    Came a bit late to thread but, IMHO, OP's query is akin to the rocket fallacy, 'In space, what does it push against ?'

    If you attach a crank to the top bearing of a slanted gyroscope, so...

    Closed: Re: Minimize effect of IR bulbs on image

    Faced with a similar situation for two pan/tilt IPCAMs and one 'trad' CCTV, I fitted our patio with an IR mini-floodlight with integral day/night photo-sensor.

    Tough, IP 65, drew 20 Watt, played...
  5. Closed: Re: Different robotic joint designs (fast/high torque/simple to manufacture)

    You've also got the issues of control and back-lash.

    Surprisingly, you may do well with high-end 'modelling' servo motors. Trivial to control, well documented performance, tough as hi-tensile...
  6. Closed: Re: measuring slow oscillations with magnetic methods

    Could you go the theremin route, and use the board's motion to modulate an ultrasonic or low-RF oscillator ?

    Think 'metal detector'...

    Also, IIRC, if any product was made per that patent, or arguably related, there may be copyright issues, too.

  8. Closed: Re: How to move metal elements via magnetic waves?

    I've seen some 'magic' tricks that relied on a mobile magnet under table, though I cannot recall detail or source.

    Closed: Re: Using a potentiometer to measure arcseconds.

    Hi !
    IMHO, measuring stellar parallax is HARD, which is why it had to wait until the mid-19th Century for large optical instruments and, after the first successful determinations, photography to...

    There is also possibility that a 'budget' SD card is a fake, with much less capacity than advertised.
    Due care, please ??

    Sorry, bit late to thread, but may I mention that an 'old fashioned buzzer', one with relay-like operation, really, really needs a protective diode across its coil to prevent back-emf zapping the...
  14. Closed: Re: NPN is bahaving as oscillator when used with DALI comms bus

    Um, I don't know about DALI, but the configuration looks a lot like MIDI, where opto-isolation was obligatory, even for the shortest, simplest connection.

    Has your drive circuit enough 'push-pull' ooomf to overcome the MOSFET gate's capacitance at that speed, yet not introduce 'ringing' inductance ??
