I get emails every once in a while from enterprising engineers who need some help getting their personal projects off the ground. I love giving this kind of advice, and I always do my best to reply.
After doing this for a while, I figured that while I'm spending all of this time writing these replies, I might as well post them publicly so everyone else can make good use of them.
You can see a compilation of these emails by clicking the "Reader Mail" button on the top menu bar. I won't be publishing every email I get (any more requests for a Chris Jericho jacket will not make the cut), and none of these posts will make it to my twitter or main feed (don't want to crowd up the chanel).
So if you'd like to see what it's all about, click the link!
my name's luke and I want to make some clothes lit with EL wire that
have separate sections that respond to different frequencies coming in
from a mic. I need some advice about how to go about it.
I'm trying to do it without spending too much and there are cheap led
boards that almost do what i need but they output dc when i need ac, do
i need to attach inverters to every output? do inverters even work on
variable input? Is this even the right aproach?
I came across your page a couple of times trying to find a solution so i
figured id ask. I work for an events staging company working with high
end lighting, sound and vision equipment, I don't know that much about
electronics but i pick up on it fairly easily.
also my friend is really into your jacket with the underglow. I'll
probably try to make one of them too.
