Inventive Ideas and Notes, Articles of Various Projects

This web site was originally intended to be an on-line "blog" from the results of various projects that I have attempted over the course of time. While this sounded like a good idea, I was not willing to allocate all of the time needed to keep an "active" blog. Instead, I am updating this site only occasionally. I have been doing this since 2004 and will continue to do so for the time being.

Below, you will find notes, sometimes very detailed, on a number of projects. I provide most of this information freely, however in some cases, where a project may consume much time and resources, I may charge a small fee for my article. These articles are written in detail and will save you a large amount of time should you wish to pursue the same path.

An Inexpensive Home Carbonation Device:

I am generally unsatisfied with commercial sodas. They are usually too sweet, have candy-like flavours and colours, contain preservatives, and are an effort to carry around, not to mention the excessive cost for what amounts to sugar, water and a splash of colour and flavouring. In light of this, I thought that it would be nice to be able to make my own. I did some homework and was disappointed at the limited choices. I then decided to investigate ways to develop my own device. After a number of attempts, I succeeded and invented this carbonation system. The result is a very effective and inexpensive carbonation system. Click here for the carbonator.

High Output Red Laser:

High output laser diodes are used in DVD burners. Now, DVD burners are available for less than $40.00. Utilizing one of these diodes requires some time and effort especially if you want some longevity from your investment. If done with care, an inexpensive rather powerful laser can be constructed. I won't go into all of the details of the construction, but I will give you an overview on my DVD laser page.
