Kewl new toy!

Post by mysticvirgo67 » Tue Sep 08, 2009 6:01 am

I haven't bought one, and at nearly 500USD for the basic model, I doubt I will be getting one any time soon, but this relay controller IS WIFI !! One can control electrical items remotely!
Also comes in USB, RS232, Bluetooth and plain old serial port.

Fuck that man, at close to 600$ I would rather build one. although I was looking around at some other sites earlier and fond some for close to 300$. Forget where though, hopefully I can find it again.

Reminds me of what I was trying to make in high school. Plus a wireless part :-)

I don't have a scanner, and all the pictures I took of this sucked.

Well, I used to play with the 100 and 1 aond 200 and 1 electronics project kits... tried making a solr flashlight, but without a rechargable battery in the circuit, was a bit pointless LOL...

my hands aren't steady enought for soldering components. Am a wizz at soldering cables together, though :)

Yea freebe! I was dreaming of using the 8 relay model to run the antenna mount. I'll get to it one of these days..

I used to have daydreams of a van that had every piece of the legal radio gear possible. Like shortwave, all the way up to WiFi and Satelite... This is the beginings of my addiction to the signal.

Could one simply imagine the holliday displays one could run with a 24 relay model.. and imagine the 'Battle Bot' one could run on the wifi board? put it's brain in a box AWAY from the arena floor?
Or bettter yet , a personal UAV??
