phpGPS Map

I have uploaded one of my recent projects phpGPS to Github in case there is any interest. It is a php/MySQL based web app for managing GPS entries and generating a Google Maps map which can easily be embedded on webpages.

GPS coordinates can be added to the database by any device that can send an HTTP GET request, which is pretty much anything with internet access. The GPS entries can then be moved, deleted, or have extra details added like a name and comments through the web interface.

I am currently working on a simple Tasker script so that I can easily add entries on a timer or with a button press from my Android phone.

Dallas Makerspace Openhouse

The Dallas Makerspace had an open house on Saturday. It was really fun and I had a chance to show off a couple of my projects. I took the trash guitar I built using an old speaker cone and an axe handle, the Baxboard, the Arduino Midi Sythesizer, a homemade amp, homemade tube screamer clone pedal, and a Raspberry Pi running the JAMS app which was setup with my keyboard and Baxboard.

There was also a pinball room set up with many of the pinball tables some of the member have restored. This was definitely a hit.

Big Bend Panorama Mounting

Big Bend Mounting

I mounted a panorama I created last year at Big Bend at the Dallas Makerspace last night. I printed it on paper as 12.4″ x 36″ with 2″ borders. I then built a simple frame and wrapped the photo like it was canvas. I’ve tried a few in this way, and it looks good while being inexpensive.
