I’m pleased to announce that Geiger Counter Kits are now for sale in the Maker Shed!
In this video, Make’s Michael Castor shows how he used the kit to find several radioactive objects around his home. Check it out!
Resellers: If you are interested in carrying my Geiger Counter kit in your store, please contact me.
I’ll be there! I’m showing off my Wifi Radio project on the Make: stage at 1:30PM on Saturday.
MayorMike, inspired by the article I wrote for Make vol. 20 (Retro Wireless Handset), stuck a bluetooth headset in a plastic toy gun to create his Handgun Bluetooth Earpiece Project. The best part – the earphone is located at the end of the barrel, so to answer a call, you stick it up to your ear. Genius.
The innards are shown below.
Nice work, MayorMike! May I suggest that you pair this with a Hand Grenade MP3 Player?
I didn’t know at the time that I was being recorded, but here’s a somewhat low quality video of the Retro Bluetooth Handset talk I gave on Sunday of the 2010 Bay Area Maker Faire.
The talk starts about 7 minutes into the video, so skip ahead unless you want to watch John Edgar Park of Make: television greet his fans.
The Maker Faire Bay Area 2010 is less than two weeks away!
I’ll be giving two short talks about my Bluetooth Handset Hack over the weekend. Look for me on stage near the Make: booth.
I would love to meet some readers of the blog. If you spot me at the Faire, please say hello!
Update: I’ll be presenting on the Make: stage in Expo Hall at 12:30pm both days.
