The Portable Dog Killer / Quiet Canine Competition

(1/17) > >>

MJLorton:
If you have not followed Steve Gibson (Shields UP!, SpinRite, etc) and Leo Laporte and their Security Now! podcasts  you might be missing something...

This competition is based on the Security Now podcast where Steve talks about the Portable Dog Killer he made in his teens...it's hysterical:

Steve is now developing a new version which can be based on several hardware prototyping platforms.
He has several forums where he is developing ideas: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/portable-sound-blaster/VTNUYEPpy1U/7blr4TWRugEJ
Here is a link to some pics and info on the new prototype: https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=1mfc5ZcuqU03ll2qyHl8URd1MvAYzr5swq2_SoCYmpIc

To pre-enter this competition you need to post a picture here of your multimeter placed somewhere interesting in your neighborhood, town or city.

Next...get cracking on researching and building the "Quiet Canine" device...and post a few updates along the way. At the end...even if it does not work for any reason...post a video and you will be in the final selection for the prize.

The prize will be a Uni-T UT61E and goods to the value of $150 from my Amazon Store: http://astore.amazon.com/m0711-20

For this competition to take place I need at least three entries by the 21st of January 2013...and at least two completed projects by the end of February 2013.

All the best and have fun.

Martin.

I'm in. I had problems sleeping in summer, so I was considering a fixed version of the "hush puppy", but I can go portable as well. :) Interesting challenge.

Brilliant...fixed or portable...it does not matter!

Please post the picture when you have time...

Cheers,
Martin.

I will have to dig out the bodgy one I made years ago............ Wonder if it still works? The ones sold as pest repellents do not work on insects, though hopefully they do work on rodents, the cats certainly stay away from the garage door though. I do know that the gecko's are supremely indifferent to them, from the droppings that they leave in front of it.

Yes, sorry about the missing picture, I was building up my strength to go outside :)
