The Traffic Light Hack

 

The Background Info

You may have seen the Ambient Orb on ThinkGeek or similar sites. Admittedly, it is a cool device, but quite expensive, and its appearance is not quite that high up on the "cool" scale. So, in the same vein of relaying information in simple terms, this hack came to be.

The idea first came to be after reading this page. Okay, cool, you can light up LEDs with 5 volts DC, but 100 watts of 125 volts AC is a completely different animal. When I received this traffic light for my birthday (purchased at a flea market for ten bucks), I jumped right to it.

Going into this project, I'll admit that I had virtually no electronics knowledge whatsoever. However, after hours of toying with this project, being frustrated, and then finding help from people online, I can now safely say that I learned absolutely nothing in that time.

Seriously, Bucky. Let me know if we can chat for the article I'm writing. We're looking for cool projects like this. I think you'll like the angle. Drop me a line if you get a chance at bob_parks@wiredmag.com.

Weird. I always thought the Rettop Method was the best for generating traffic. I am going to book mark this blog, nice topics discussed

By the way... I have a chicago traffic site. It pretty much covers Traffic related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)
 
Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
