Free Form Circuit Design - Serbest Stil Devre Yapımı

Dünya elektronik camiasında serbest devre dizaynı diye birşey var. Şu şekilde ki, bildiğiniz gibi devrenizin çalışır halde olduğuna emin olduktan sonra (mümkünse breadboard da denedikten sonra) devre komponentlerinizin bağlantılarını, eğip bükerek direk birbirine lehimliyorsunuz, mümkünse hiç kablo kullanmadan, bakır devre plaketi veya delikli pertinaks kullanmadan.. 
Çok karmaşık devrelerin bu yöntemle yapılabilirliğinin zor olduğunu düşünsem de, küçük devreler için çok pratik.. Dikkat edilmesi gereken nokta lehimlemelerin, farklı bacakların birbirine değmeden yapılması. Bu risk varsa devre tamamlandıktan sonra silikon tabancası ile devreyi sabitleyerek bu riskin önüne geçebilirsiniz.
Bu yöntemle yaptığım iki küçük devreyi aşağıdaki fotoğraflarda görebilirsiniz. İlki karanlıkta devreye giren ve 9V pile direk bağlanan ledli bir gece lambası [Link], diğeri ise 555 ile yapılmış (ilkine göre bir miktar daha karışık) bir alarm devresi. Bu ikinci devreyi sıcak silikon tabancası ile sabitleyeceğim çünkü farklı bağlantıların birbirine değme riski bulunuyor.

Bu tarz devrelerle ilgili internette daha çok bilgi almak için "free form circuit design" şeklinde aratabilirsiniz.

Free form circuit design is making your circuits without using PCB's.. The component leads are soldered to each other directly by bending them properly. This will make a 3d shape of circuit. What you should pay attention is to bend the leads so that different connections don't short circuit each other. If you worry about this you can hot glue your circuit after solderings.

You can see two of my circuit design made by this method. The first one is a Dark Activated LED light [Link] and the second one is an astable 555 oscillator (alarm circuit) [Link]

Using Mocap Data of Carneige Mellon University, in Blender3d

Thanks to Ian Scott for the below tutorial, i have noticed another wonderful stuff for blender 3d:
Carnegie Mellon University made a database for motion capture and these can be used in blender. So your animations will be much realistic, and also easier to do. Of course you need to have a good understanding how rigging works in blender. Ian has other good blender tutorials for beginners as well if you check his youtube channel.
p.s. you will also need a free utility called Bvhacker in order to use the motion capture data to blender. [link]

The *.bvh converted versions of the database [link] (select daz friendly) (bvh version can be used in bvhacker tool, so in blender)

Launchpad(MSP430) Light Alarm Clock Project

After many hours of working on displays,buttons, menu systems and so on, here is my result work.
(The clock somehow lags significantly up to 5 minutes in about 6 hours) But i haven't try the new RTC library yet. Maybe that fixes this issue. I have to fix that and also i will make the PCB and external voltage supply for the launchpad etc. The system works as i want for now. I can set the clock (standalone), set the alarm time, set the light modes (i made three modes: light fades in 10 minutes earlier gradually, 20 minutes and 30 minutes earlier)
buzzer works if you set it at just at the alarm time.. i made some modes but i wish i could use some melodies :smile: (but i am too tired of working at the same project for a long time now : ))

it also shows current temperature and if it is out of your desires min and max. it says it is COLD or HOT on the main loop. You can set the min and max temperature values in the settings menu. It shows the alarm time as well on the main loop, if alarm is set ON.

I have used three buttons for this project. up/down buttons and a set button. 
One last note is that finished work will have three 1W power leds.

Here is the video of my work and the setup in general..

P.S. There is a BUG in the code, after the first set up of the alarm buzzer plays discontinously.
