The home page for all my DIY Projects

The projects have all taken a backburner (at least in terms of production) as I'm currently looking for a new job due to the covid outbreak

 

I work on projects from time to time, this helps keep my brain moving and thinking constantly about new challenges and new research. I've tried to categorise them for ease of use

Some of these projects are ones I'd like to do, and some are ones I'm already doing. I tend to just have a lot of projects, and then simply switch between them all to keep my mind active

There are commercial products already on the market, however I'd have to disassemble them to figure out how they work. By researching it and building it myself, I'm teaching myself how to build the circuits, what components to use, things I need to consider to build a working circuit and different things I normally wouldn't have learned otherwise

It may always seem like I'm doing nothing with these projects, sometimes I'm not. I have a full time job, so work on these projects in my spare time, my updates can take weeks/months before they're ready to post, and quite frankly I hit a lot of problems with these projects, because I have to research the theory behind how things work to get them made. OR I run out of funding to do it, so have to save up some pennies. Real life always takes priority. These are just fun things to me. It takes my mind off problems in my real-life when I want to unwind and challenge myself

I'll only post the links to the actual projects once the articles are completed. This is so people get to read the article when it's complete and not under work, and also because it allows me to protect my designs.

There's actually about 50+ projects I'm working on. Most of them aren't even uploaded yet.

 

The main project I'm focussing on below is the Car Head Unit. I'm building one from the ground up. Picking components, etc. The main challenge is this is trying to figure out how to get the functions to work. I have a desire to use Linux with it, but I need to learn how to write my own custom features. More learning!
