Worst thing about teppanyaki in NY are the NYers who can not shut the hell up and eat. NODA in White Plains earns a 4 of 5 -- every thing was well done -- my only fickle scorn is not halving the shrimp and a soggy salad lettuce. #Assessment - 21:16:41 337 017 Miter
TVShow S02E02X45 Arduino MetroPhones
The metropolitan in it's natural habitat; unaware, oblivious, purposefully deafened and subsequent prey. To increase perception thus safety, we wed an Arduino Nano and ultrasonic sensor to regulate volume to proximity to some one (thing) behind you; easily deactivated per environment (in-line slide switch) and rechargeable (3XCR2032). Beyond this proof of concept, intention for apparel or accessory (i.e. purse strap, back pack) embedding is ideal.



(Disclaimer) TVMiller is NOT a metro-any-damn-thing!

This prototype of a prototype is a mono-version. A stereo version would merely require dual channels (pots). Aptly, imagine if you will, you plug your head phones in to your purse strap which is embedded with a Metrophone with bluetooth that streams to your smart phone...or or or you could PAY ATTENTION! Sorry not sorry.

Urineless Splash Back Toilet Design


Our never ending venture to improve our human experience on Earth often revisits the loo, where a tranquil setting is commonly torpedoed by flecks of contaminated fluid showered up on our under carriage. In our attempt to ease this madness, we have idealized a toilet that segregates the two exhumations, apportioning unsullied splashed back water for the inevitable. Rest assured, our processes will remain stead fast towards the advent of absolutes, eventually freeing all man from an unwilling solution bathing. Female species excluded from design analysis; sorry, not sorry.

Resistance Theory (Faux Rendering) Dimensional Wave Migration


Having analyzed simplified wave form migration structures in a three dimensional boundary such as flagellum and deoxyribonucleic acid, we found potential application of vortices to explain wave duality and/or redundant kinetic oscillation in a membrane.

Evaluating Elevation | Hover


Efficient hovering at shallow elevations should be accomplished by intermittent oscillations and not static resistance; a gradual ascent and consequential decent building kinetic discharge.

Inventor, Hacker, Maker, Lover? Join HackADay.io
While engineering has always existed as aspiration, we can genuinely attest that if it were not for HackADay and HackADay.io in the past two years having promoted our projects, we would not have ventured as confidently or passionately, in spite of difficult circumstances, in bringing ideas in to tangible invent.

Strictly speaking for my self, though surely many exist alike, I am not an entrepreneur. I am a creator and from this, there is little outlet for garage tinkering to have substance if not marketed, branded and pitched. HackADay.io provides this alternative forum to give your ideas a platform for reception and recognition no matter the degree, talent or genre. Join and post your build and you will find the desire to compete, to which evolves your knowledge and skill.

TVShow S01E25X41 Garbage Gauge
The average American family of four creates 124 pounds of garbage each week. We are dismissive if we are better or worse. Here we have combined a Particle Photon, scale and scraps to wirelessly log our weekly and life long waste out put with coding to acclimate to blah blah blah...the following is a fart joke.
