How you can make your own cube solver-PT1

For more than 2 years I have been dreaming to make my own RUBIK’s cube solving bot. Now, I have the materials and the tools to make it possible. There are 2 methods to make the bot solve a cube:

  • Push and twist method
  • Rotate side method.

The 1st method uses the least number of components possible. BUT it takes more time to solve and is more time consuming to code.
So, I used the 2nd method instead where each side is moved individually. This is easier and any motor can be used.
So I joined with my friend and started the bot.
Incase you wish to buy these products, the links are given below.

  • Ice-cream sticks
  • Super Glue
  • Template: Link below!

We first took a bag of ice-cream sticks. Then we made a simple template and cut the pieces. If you wish to replicate the same, the file will be given below. Then we cut the necessary pieces out with the help of the template. Then we stuck them together (see fig:cb1).

Then we made it like a tube. See fig:cb2
 Sorry, Img not availableOnce we did the above step, we tried fitting it to the center piece and check if it was steady. See fig: cb3.

Then we the same few steps listed above and made 6 of those tubes mentioned above. We also kep’t testing to see if each tube fits. See fig:cb4,cb5

Once we finished all of these steps pt1 of our bot was ready.
You can move to to the next blog which will come soon so that you can complete making the cube solving robot. Please keep checking the main page so that you know when the next steps come.

Make your own Hydrogen Generator for cheap!

This is my electrical and chemistry based project. Highly recommend that you don’t try this at home with out any safety equipment.
Check video below.
Click Here To View!


Now we used small electrodes with a fixed voltage. Adding higher amount of electrodes can get lethal. SO PLEASE DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME.
Incase you want to make it for other purposes here are the items required:

  1. A zinc nail
  2. A copper rod or something made from copper
  3. A 12 volt powersupply:
  4. 9 volt battery
  5. a bottle
  6. Salt
  7. water
  8. aquarium tubing

Let’s start!

  • you gather the components with wire, attach 1 wire to the copper rod and 1 wire to the zinc rod,
  • make 2 holes side by side on the bottle
  • gather some clear aquarium tubing
  • Make 1 small hole and 1 big hole in which the tube can fit.
  • now attach the tube and fix the tubing with some E6000 or something (not sponsored)
  • Into the second hole, push the wire and electrodes side by side.
  • make sure that the electrodes don’t touch each other.
  • Now give it power somewhere in between 9-12 volts.
  • before that add some salt water to it till the electrodes

VOILA!now that your generator is ready, if you keep a lit up match near the tube, the match should turn of. If not add more salt or water accordingly.

The Very First Project I made (You can too)


This is the very first electronics project that I made and uploaded to youtube.
This project is a Remote Controller based motor driver.
The video has the products needed.

https://youtu.be/ReJ0Nczex9A

The items needed to accomplish the task are:

  • RC receiver
  • RC transmitter
  • Motor

Or if you want to go ultra cheap you can get a cheap car and salvage the parts from it
Now for the instructions:

  1. Take the receiver and solder 2 wires to the motor 1 / motor 2 socket
  2. Use a multi-meter and a battery to find the positive and negative.
    • SOCIALL tip:
    • for seeing which connection is positive or negative, try placing the probes on the wire. If you don’t see a – sign it means that the polarity is correct else it is not correct.
    • See Image:
    • img not available
  3. Now that you know which one is positive and negative, connect your motor accordingly.
  4. Give it 3 volts with the help of a dual 1.5 volt battery holder. (pay attention to the polarity).

VOILA!
Your motor circuit is ready.Pressing the button will run the motor.
Troubleshooting!

  • if your motor does not run try checking the polarity of the battery and the motor.
  • Check if your transmitter has batteries installed.
  • Check if your board is working
  • Checking if your transmitter works with something else.
  • Check that there are no short circuits.
  • Clean the flux on the board.

if your motor still does not work you might need to replace the parts.
