Project Plan: Tactical computer with HUD.
Airsoft is one of my largest hobbies, and I wanted to do something technical with it, inspired greatly from movies as well as the game, The Division.
The plan so far, is to house a Raspberry Pi 4 with the LTE/4G HAT, GPS/GSM TRACKER, and a USB driven Software Defined Radio in a housing like the ISAC Beacon.
In the backpack, there will be an array of 18650 batteries, providing a steady stream of power for the LVDS display on the wrist, and the computer system on the shoulder.
Project Plan: Automated beer system.
I am fantasizing on starting to brew beer, and I have made a trial attempt using a five liter BrewBarrel but it did not go all according to plan.
I will be trying again with proper equipment once I have a space suitable for it. The recipes I will be using, will be originating from old Viking traditions, currently carried on by the Icelandic people.
I will also try to modernize the process, using a Raspberry Pi or Arduino to control and manage the timings, temperature etc. I’m excited for this, as I love beer.
I want to have the entire brewing process monitored using Prometheus, Grafana and maybe Loki/Cortex.
Project Plan: Automated drip system.
I’m fascinating by technology, yet still we are heavily dependant on land based farming for growing our food. Land based farming takes a huge portion of our water consumption per year, and has a huge potential for successful modernization.
I want to become independent, and grow my own vegetables, herbs and chillies to use for my daily needs. I could even brew my own beer, make my own liqours or cooking oils/sauces with self grown vegetables.
The plan is to start testing out a small drip system, and possibly a nutrient film technique once the drip system is working perfectly.
Pipe pieces needed:
110mm diameter sewage/drainage pipe (main tray / drainage)
110mm to 50mm transition (smaller and easier)
50mm 87* bend (bend drainage down)
Various drip stakes
Small feeder flex pipe
Project Plan: Extract CAN data from car.
I don’t have a drivers license yet, but I’m working on it, still… I can’t help but be fascinated by the possibilities this gives me. I want to set up a Raspberry Pi with the RS485 CAN HAT or similar systems to interface with the vehicles Controller Area Network system to extract a variety of metrics related to the vehicles health and usage.
