Hello there /sci/. I have a challenge for you. Take your favorite futuristic or otherwise out of reach tech from any movie (let's say a light saber) and try to explain if humans can replicate it with a few modifications.

so, I know you guys use word filters, or at least have a times, I have some questions about them, now, this being said, I'm aware that your guys' word filter isn't exactly used in the same way that this kind is... at least in spirit, or cause behind the technicalities

out of curiousity, does anyone know of any studies on manipulation of perception in a pervasive way involving mediums of communication and what is said or isn't said?
does anyone have any knowledge of studies involving methods of control that are linguistics oriented or say... are designed to pick up on related contexts and the like with various signifiers?

some stuff's popped up lately and I'm *extremely* interested in this, I might have to learn a fair bit of technical jargon and concepts but I feel like it's probably worth it

on the one hand it seems like the attempts to engage in this are laughable but at the same time I know that sometimes these sorts of things can get real good real fast, especially when there's already a load of collected data that's not purposefully spoiled to challenge the attempt at deriving context to start silencing apparently said things

Serious opinions about this new browser?

And I want honest opinions and not those entirely based upon the fact that a past iteration of the engine was not good. Like all things, they can improve or get worse.

It's trying entirely way too hard to be 'good', also it spawned an endless cascade of edge jokes, and I am not fine with that.

Hi sci,
I'm a noob about computers and going to do college of Computer Engineering. I don't know even how to start learning. Can somebody give a tip?

Arduino is a great place to start! Anonymous 16/12/30(Fri)09:26 No. 16404 ID: 01d2f8

Code academy and cybrary are pretty helpful sites but I really learned a lot building and programming little projects with the arduino mega2560. Jeremy Blum has some great tutorials on you tube to get you started. Also building raspberry pi projects is a great way to get your feet wet. Best of luck to you.

Also use Udemy if you have a little bit of money their courses are very informative and useful. Also very good for Python beginner courses.

Good luck bro




replacing speaker with 1/4" jack chrissychris 16/12/19(Mon)21:09 No. 16401 ID: 8ed2cc [Reply]

Alrighty, I am looking for some help.

For the sake of experimentation and fun, I'd like to replace the speaker of a shitty kids toy (very similar to the one in the pic) with a 1/4" audio jack so it can play through a larger amp, possibly even through guitar effect pedals.

I've already tried this twice. Taken apart the toy, soldered in a 1/4" jack, and plugged it in. Both times I ended up with a reallyyyy spotty and quiet sound. At first I thought it may be a bad soldering job, but now I feel like it could be due to the low power of the toy, it takes 3 AA batteries.

So what's the deal here? Any ideas what could be wrong?

It has nothing to do with the electrical power. Real electric guitars don't have any batteries. The issue could be that the amp is designed to work with the signals from a guitar's pickup, which are probably not the same as the signals from a speaker. If I had to guess, the pickup would be taking the signals from each string individually, while the speaker from this kid's toy is taking the entire sound as a whole.

It's also possible that the teeny-tiny magnet in that speaker just isn't strong enough to send a strong signal. I'm not sure what you could do about this.

let's say i have the materials and technology needed to create a biomechanicaL warbeast based on a cicada. i want it to be able to blast out 194 Db waves of pure fuck-you-up. but also be able to use different frequencies and amplitudes of sound for different things too.

so, what's the best way to go about making it?
how would it work?
