Steering wheel commands on my carputer

After a lot of work on my homemade carputer, I finally found out how to get the steering wheel commands on my carputer.
I made a video to explain how it works and how I did it :

I used and arduino with a Can Module to read the messages. In the video I explain how the Can Network is organised and how to get the message to know what is happening on the steering wheel commands.

Enjoy 🙂

First experience with wood

I received a jigsaw for my birthday, so I used it to enhance the cage of my two guineas pigs.

 

The cost is very small as most of it was done using scrap wood. This small project was interesting because I could test 3 different type of cuts using the jigsaw :

  •  Straight cut on the stairs and for the hut
  •  Cut following a curve for the upper stage
  •  Circular cut for the “window” (yes it was supposed to be a window but they decided to use it as a door, well it’s your cage …)

They adopted it the day I set it in the cage. To help them discover the upper part I baited them with some fruits and it worked pretty well.

As said with the title, this was my first experience with wood and I really liked it. Maybe one day there will be an other project with wood …
