Re: Anyone have any dead dive computers they'd like to donate?

Thanks Ben! I'll look around, but I'm not sure if OLED's are that cheap yet. Stock LED's, sure. OLED's are pretty damn bright, and would make more sense in the water. Sounder, I've got an Arduino sitting here, that I can load a LED driver for for output. That's not my problem. The problem is trying ...

Re: DIY thread

Jake,
That's awesome, and a great idea! I'm going to grab one of those lights, and build a soft goodman for it, while I'm slowly collecting parts to make a can.

Awesome!

Re: Anyone have any dead dive computers they'd like to donate?

Oh Yeah. They slapped those comps on as I was standing there. Uhm... DROOL. Of course, that would make it too easy. 0] Well, One hurdle was the battery, the next ones will be pressure testing them, and potentially replacing the depth sensors on at least two of them.

Re: Anyone have any dead dive computers they'd like to donate?

Lynne, Dead Battery. 0] I replaced it, but unfortunately one of the screw in the back is seized, so I had to mangle the door a little to get it off. All I think I need to do is redo the battery cover (The seal is still there, so it's watertight), and pressure test it to make sure it's a working comp...

I was thinking of using the 12 tissue algorithm heinrichsweikamp was talking about, but I have to dig around some more. So far most of their source is done in Assembler, and C, so that's not too bad, unless I have to change some hardware references in more than one place. 0] I'm still going to tool ...

Oregon may be too far for me currently, but keep me in the pipe. I'd really like to attend one at some point. (I've got time, as I am expecting to have all my gear back by spring).

Re: Anyone have any dead dive computers they'd like to donate?

I'd love them. Well, I want to open them up, and look inside of them. My ultimate goal would be to replace the ROM with my own, using the open source, 12 tissue analyzing computer firmware, and test it. For anyone concerned, I would NEVER test any of this in the water without a proper computer strap...

The first two seem to be blurred in the front and background too early. Check your aperture.

Re: Dive light without breaking the bank?

Hey Sean,
Maybe you and nwbrewer can meet up, and you can test it, and see if you like it. Check out the Diy portion in this forum, he tells you what's in it. it's pretty cool. I'm building one as well, as these lights usually go for $500 +.
