I have posted this elswhere, but wanted to show it here as the Tech Lab seems a nice place as any to post it!



The whole system Runs off 9v battery, and even has a shut down mode!

I think It only really took a day!

I cant find an active link for the kit now but I will try to find it for you all.

I also built one of these a while ago, it is in my garage but seeing the additions made by Carl I feel it needs to be updated to have something similar.  8)
