Hey Alan! I have be showing my seven year old the inner-workings of many HDD and just about anything broken he can find (supervised). We searched the net for uses for dead HDD and found your projects! Really great site! I cant wait to try to build the HDD clock. Thanks for inspiring both me and my kid!

Hi Alan, its nice to see all the positive responses regarding your LED stair lighting system, My question prior to ordering this brilliant product is will it work correctly over in the UK, e.g power output.
your assistance with this would be a great help.
Replied on: 2:50pm 08-17-2010

The system will work fine there. The new power supplies that we have are universal (110V or 240V) but the prongs are the north american style. You could get the power supply locally to power the controller also. Any power supply that outputs between 9 and 12 volts DC and at least 500mA will work fine.

Hello Alan, first of all, awesome projects you have here, keep up the excellent work!

My question is regarding your stair lights. I've watched the demo videos you have on the project page, the one with your cat and such, and I was wondering if it was possible to light the LEDs one at a time at startup just like they turn off one at a time and the end, much like this video here:

Maybe modify the times they turn on, off. Thanks for your response.

Right now the controller turns off the lights one at a time but turns them on all at once. This feature will be available in the near future since so many people are asking for it.

Can I get the IR jammer already assembled?
Replied on: 2:07pm 07-21-2010

Sorry, it is only currently available in kit form. It is all through hole though so this would be the best time to learn.

The ecellent video completing the Hard Drive Fan was forwarded to me by John Main

Your video includes VERY important skills to progress a breadboard to a Beta-Prototype. For Newbies, cutting the perf-board, not using electrical tape(glue gun) and strain reliefs are stumbling blocks. You could do well re-posting this as a Bread-board to Real-World 'How to'.

Good and considerate job!!

HI ,,, im the one who is so amazing with ur peojects . Im so interesting in LED spinning globe and i wanna do it as my term project but i hv to write program on FPGA by using VHDL language . Is it possible to do it ? .. I need your help . Plz give me some advice.

Sincerely, Yokk

That is definitely possible. I don't work with FPGA's though so I won't be able to help.

Your stair-lighting kit looks very interesting -- I am working on a similar (not for sale) project. But I am concerned about safety here. Are you using wire rated for in-wall use? Are wires being connected according to residential electrical code (usually that means in an approved box)? A house fire is no fun.
Replied on: 12:04pm 06-13-2010

It uses a listed power supply and everything else is current limited low voltage. Yes, all the wire we sell is FT4 rated. Check with your local codes but I have never seen any area that requires low voltage electronics to be mounted in an electrical box.

Thanks for the stairlightkit, it works like a charm

Hi Alan
Your projects are so amazing. I'm making a project like your rotating led but i just don't understand how the board gets it’s negative from the motor because the shaft of my DC motor isolate with the case of motor. Please reply me as soon as possible. Thanks
Replied on: 11:55am 06-13-2010

To do it the same way I did you would need to find one that is not isolated.
