    Title says it all really.

    My greatest accomplishment is a dim led so far.

    It's a start!

    I don't get you really but do we really need to show off our accomplishment in circuit making we all know very well how to make good circuits.First learn some basics and then show off probably you should contact "little ghostman" for help.

    Your best application, fix, (re)build, modification and so on. How has the skill been useful to you?

    I'm interested as a hobby but it's getting a little pricey and I'm curious the kinds of fruits this could bear,

    Hobby getting pricey? Are you buying in anticipation of need? Don't. Start a project you need. Then buy what you need as you go along. No need to plan for the future (within reason), and no time tables to meet. It's a hobby!

    Think Steve Jobs... :wideyed:. Don't forget, he and the Woz were just playing at first while members of the Palo Alto-based Homebrew Computer Club, a local group of electronics hobbyists.

    Of course, at the complete other end of the spectrum is me (I'm in it for the fun). If you like it, you'll find ways to justify the expense.

    Many hobbies are expensive. Boating for example. You earn money to pay bills, your bookie, etc. Your extra income then goes to hobbies. Everyone should enjoy the fruits of their labor :)
    Now if I could just convince my wife of that. She hates seeing me scrolling thru EBAY cause she knows I am spending money. :eek:

    I'm not sure you're one to talk, TM. I have yet to see a useful post from you....

    I don't know about "greatest", but my personal favorite so far is my yet unrealized interrupter for my dual resonant solid state Tesla coil, with independent frequency and duty cycle adjustment, as well as independent duty cycle and on-time limiting.

    Talk about expensive hobbies, don't try to build a DRSSTC when you have a strict budget!

    Problem with rubber cars is that they cause more whiplash to the passengers. Ouch!

    Unfortunately it was very impractical, which I think is why you got such a negative reaction. It's not scientifically or financially viable.

    I know I am not Bill Gates but I do have some scientific knowledge and financial sense that is why I posted that thread and I don't think everyone gave a negative reaction and we can just try it without harm and try to make it cheap I am just trying to do something which rarely any individual tried but I don't think that a cybernetic arm for a hamster would cost me a fortune.

    The statements in bold are where you are wrong, and if you did actually have any scientific knowledge and a financial sense, you'd know why they were wrong.

    We have given you many reasons why it won't work. If you still don't believe us, then just try it. You'll find out very quickly that it's not as easy or as cheap as you think it will be, if it's even possible with today's technology at all.

    Dear Mr. Tesla. How about a magnetic field car bumper utilizing identical magnets repelling each other? That should create a cushion for a softer impact!
    Cheers,

    Interesting idea, but the magnets would have to be enormous and incredibly powerful for that to work, and I'm not sure you can get that much repulsion without a specially designed electromagnet. If you were to go the electromagnet route, you would need a huge amount of power, and I'm not sure how practical it would be. Might be worth researching, but at this point I'm not sure if it would be worth it.

    LOL. I was thinking even if you can produce such a powerful coil (may be doable with a solar panel size of a house tied to your roof), the electromagnetic waves could realign your blood cells.
