electricity with Mekkor today: finally the "big" project *wohooo*

Hi everyone,

Damn, i wanted to post that yesterday (touchè?) but I never realized how damn hard it is to find a good simulation programm for electrical circuits on the internet oO
I didnt want to draw another crappy blueprint for you and i wanted it to look professional.

I searched my ass off for some useful programm. Two hours waisted just to find something that doenst look like bullshit, is freeware and can be used without asking the programmer how to understand his "programm". Now i have to clean my pc off of all crappy programmes i installed.

After that i gave up and played the rest of the day (more time waisted). Damn, im so demotivated right now.

But i thought you guys want to know what we're building.

So i gave up my search and just tried to make a good blueprint with pen and paper. Well, its not bad but in the end its not supposed to look pretty. It should be informative and i think it is.



















A "BC 548" is a very common transistor which is very cheap, easy to handle and needs low power. The arrow markes the "Emitter".








E = Emitter
B = Basis
C = Collector

If you acciedently switch Emitter and Collector its not that bad, but if you connect the Basis wrong your transistor will overheat, melt and stink in 2 seconds.


I know you want to know what the finished "thing" does. Well, if you push the button the LEDs will blink. Thats it.
You might think "Wow, thanks for waisting 2 minutes of my life.". It was a pleasure if you think so but with a little creativity and an idea something like that will come out.



Forgive me, i know the sound is shitty, somehow everything looks yellow and its shaking. Well, thats the result of my first video made with my camera.
(I just found out it can make videos ^^ )

So, thats it for today
Bye :D

  1. the paper blueprint still gets the point across.

  2. no, i'm not an engineer (but it would be cool if i would be)
    i'm in my second year of my apprenticeship for informatics system. Its like a whore-for-everything-job.
    When i'm finished, i'm a certificed electrician and an information scientist so i have to know about electric stuff and computer stuff.

  3. Hey, if you had fun, it's not wasted time :) Looking good so far though.

  4. I dont understand those schematics, but im pretty sure the finished project will be pretty cool. Eagerly waiting for it :D

  5. I'm not an electrician but very cool stuff!

  6. Can't wait to see the final thing o;
    It reminds me of my product design course in school.

  7. I was looking at the schematics and was thinking why did you use the two diodes (I didn't get they were LED until I played the vid).

    I have to say, I find this really cool.
    This, actually, made me smile. :)

  8. looks neat! be careful around eletricity! :P

  9. ahahha awesome! But I hate this kinda of electric systems!

  10. Are you a Tesla fan? This is some pretty cool stuff

  11. I would love you sooo much if you could do a post on reading schematics like that so I can figure out whats wrong with my guitar pedal. This was cool, and I think I have enough spare parts lying around to build this

  12. Wow this is too damn awesome! "] Great Post!

  13. wow, nice. The paper blueprint is good :D

  14. You don't need software to design circuits, you did it just fine with pen and paper.

  15. That is very interesting! The blueprint is very nicely drawn up! Keep it up!

  16. Cool little project :P
    The video is yellow because of the white balance, usually you can change it to something like "tungsten" and it will look better inside.

  17. ive done some stuff with LED's like this it isnt as easy as it looks. good work though. +follow

  18. A cool, and simple, project! My roommate used to make stuff like this all the time.

  19. it reminds me of my years in high school :)

  20. Interesting but completely lost on me, sorry.

  21. hahaha all that for a very anti-climactic video. I guess "Rome wasn't build in 2 days" though. You must start with the basics as you are!

  22. haha. i guess the journey is more fun than the end result.

    AntwortenLöschen
  23. Nice man, great info .+Follow to yout blog

  24. This is interesting... but over my head :p Once i see a project involving plugging in something or flipping a switch, ill let you know how it goes :)
