Project suggestions?

(1/2) > >>

Ian:
Hi
I would like some ideas for project ideas. nothing to pricey. no more then $50. anything just suggest

Simon:
well what sort of stuff do you like doing ? does the money have to include a case or just the board. you can do many things with 50 bucks

deephaven:
How about an automatically set clock? You can get seven segment displays very cheaply, so with those and a PIC you could make a clock. Then you could add a receiver module to receive DCF77, MSF60 etc (depending on where in the world you are) which would continually update the clock with very high accuracy. You can choose to make the receiver part yourself or buy a cheap receiver module already built.

You would learn a lot of different technologies for quite a small outlay.

Ian:
Well the $50 needs to include everything.  I live in the us. i wont any ideas

deephaven:
You can build my suggestion for under $50 all in. Just think how cool it would be to have a clock that doesn't need setting!

Here's a link to the radio timecode system used by WWV in the US: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WWVB

If you need any info about any aspect of what I've suggested, just ask.
