Re: Need an Assist on Power Calculations

I agree with Coyote, Admiral and BBadger. A gen will simplify it and give more power during day time too. It's so close to the burn + ride time, there's not much time left tobe ordering, building, testing, debugging, modification, and optimizing for battery operation. Could put (add/ fasten) a locko...

Re: Need an Assist on Power Calculations

Use for practical lighting, or visually pleasing ( look pretty)? How far in programming are you? Need to get them wired on the floor and get that programming started. What's done in program can save a lot of power like Token said. Once all wired on floor, hook an Ac amp meter to where you plug into ...

Re: How much food?

I was just thinking about physical activity and the calories that would Burn (pun)? Walking, bike riding, and partying all burn calories. So it would probably be a good idea to bump that 2000 calories per day to say 3000 calories per day??? 2000 would be a diet on a normal default day. I don't Keon ...

Maybe add foam board over the front windshield and door windows Use foam board over all the windows (maybe leave one or two that u enjoy looking out of). Windows ...

(You can request a free sample but this close to the burn no time for free sample then order) 2: no pots, pans, plates, bowls to be dirty or needed -> Al...

Re: Politically Correct Playa Clothes

Great thread. I now know what I will be wearing for one day. A Native American hula girl Nazi with a Yarmulke cod-piece. Aka the most politically incorrect as possible. And the master piece of the whole outfit a MAGA hat and a Trump shirt. actually no, that would not be self expression for me.

Re: How do I power Arduino Unos to several LED pixel strings from a generator?

if there is a reason for the Generator to power it then, I would order Two of This one you listed above one to use and one for backup. (dont use the Generator 12V plug) Token is right: the Gen is over kill if you can power from the car. At first glance the string 3 in series sounds great BUT these a...

Re: Waterproofing interactive lighting controls

You want tactile feel with a capacitive touch reliability. Ideas: 1: mount a tactile slider but don't hook up 2: use something else reliable to monitor the slider and hands/fingers people have to touch the slider to move it, same with buttons. Options: Mini therman (love that idea ) Ultrasonic range...
