Günstige Alternative zur Vermessung?

Ich habe ein Grundstück gekauft, eine Wiese. Ich weiß relativ genau, wo es verläuft aber die Nachbargrundstücke sehen genauso aus und es gibt keine Zäune oder andere Markierungen. Angebot vom Vermesser sind 3k EUR. Der Wert des Grundstück ist unwesentlich höher als das. Hat jemand eine Idee für eine günstigere Alternative? Ich will nur einigermaßen genau wissen, wo ich nen Zaun ziehen kann, ohne den Nachbarn was zu klauen oder zu schenken.

Naruto Hands Seals Detection (Python project)

Naruto Hands Seals project

I recently used Python to train an AI model to recognize Naruto Hands Seals. The code and model run on your computer and each time you do a hand seal in front of the webcam, it predicts what kind of seal you did and draw the result on the screen. If you want to see a detailed explanation and step-by-step tutorial on how I develop this project, you can watch it here.

I built a 3D printed outboard monster - running at only ten percent it's like the first time you drove a än EV with insane power

So I ever slowly night by night coming closer to splashing this in the water. I just wanted to share my excitement on my first water trial and inspire others :)

How to Remove Stuck Jute Fibers from Concrete After Linoleum Removal

Hi everyone,

I recently pulled up a linoleum floor, but I'm left with jute fibers stuck to the concrete subfloor. What's the best way to remove these fibers? I suspect there's no asbestos since I don't see any black adhesive. Any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Call John Cena and Guy Raz AI Clones

Backstory:

I moved to another country and found it difficult to stay in touch with my best friend due to the significant time difference. Both of us were busy with work and higher education, making it nearly impossible to match our schedules. Missing my friend and feeling isolated in a new country, I decided to create an AI version of him. This turned out to be a complex task, so I started by replicating famous people to explore the technology further.

What the Project Does:

Our project creates AI versions of real people using data sourced from platforms like YouTube. Written entirely in Python, we developed scripts to process this data, enabling a Large Language Model (LLM) to mimic individuals as closely as possible. We use ElevenLabs to replicate voices and Twilio to initiate phone calls.

Feature Update:

We are currently developing a new version where users can create AI versions of their favorite celebrities by simply pasting YouTube links. This one-click solution aims to make the process seamless and user-friendly.

Technical Details:

One of the biggest challenges was writing a script that formats raw data into a structure that the LLM can understand and execute accurately. We experimented with different approaches, including running LLMs locally (using LLaMA) and fine-tuning models, but these methods often lacked accuracy. Ultimately, we devised our own approach to achieve better results.

Demo

You can experience our project by calling two available AI celebrities for free:

John Cena: +1 520-999-3998 Guy Ray: +1 520-549-6237

Contact Information: We are waiting for you comments.

Almost done with my DIY electric outboard - asking for feedback on safety/structural integrity

Hi

So I've been through a long journey building this 25hp carbon fiber skinned DIY electric outboard for about five months now.

The last month has been mostly about making sure things hold up before going in the water and this I'm planning on splashing it in the water tomorrow.

I'm posting this here because I would like to get feedback and ideas on if you see any design flaws that could lead to safety issues. After all, I'm putting this on a 3m rubber dinghy and for safety it absolutely needs to hold up. After all, it's my life on the line and a 25 HP motor going lose is more than a slight safety issue. It could literally shread me up like a meat mincer.

Things I've done:

  • totally over engineered boat holder with massive plastics and tons of layer lines
  • distributed loads with steel ball bearings
  • extra u lock in this video to make sure it can not get loose
  • carbon fiber in multiple layers for increased structural strength
  • thick stainless bolts, M8 for most parts
  • build extra electrical insulation boxes and water proofed electrical connections with three membranes to make sure no water can lead electricity

That's what I can remember at least 😊

Anyways - super excited about tomorrow's splash, but I'd love to get some reality check from other builders out there before I go out. Especially on this solution for extra safety I talk about in this video, since I view it as the weakest link.

Cheers

something simple...

Looking for a simple solution to control/dim 2 lights ( less than 1 amp each ) at the same time. I have not done much with smart homes since the UPB days..Years ago..

Could be 2 kasas or equivalent plug in smart dimmers with 1 wireless control similar to pico remote

Could also use wired in slave modules as long as it is ul or equivalently listed. ( I am a licensed electrician, )

Looking for a simple system that does not require a hub and
can be controlled locally. Am wiring up 2 lights in a glass doored cabinet with glass shelves. Need to control the existing upper light ( no switch yet,,,had old powerline plug in module} and add 2 bottom uplights....As you can see, what is the best way to join this community and add my own listings....

Thanx, dhsvcs

Any good hard dives for PS5? Like 100 gigabytes to 1 terabyte?

Sorry if not right place to ask idk where

Also on a budget

Big range but I don't need a ton a ton of space. I'm trying to download games but keep having to delete one or two and don't have many big games so I don't need like the best but something I can download a few medium sized.

I have all these games not asking for em but these are the one im constantly redownloading or struggling to make space for and since I mostly do indie stuff or "older" stuff it means I have to delete multiple games for space. About half of the default storage is of bigger games and half is of few gigabyte games

Like BioShock collection, stalker, in rays of light, hitman bm, watch dogs 2 maybe seigw but can deal without if this is already too much space. Far cry 4, morbid observer and crysis remastered. It sounds like a lot but data wise these games are actually not that big. 3 of them 60 and then the others are a few gigabytes

Im considering making a ptz camera into a sort of JIBO like device...

Plz note i am probably gonna sound rather unintelligent and maybe insane on the subject but plz bear with me.

I was wondering if its feesable to connect a raspberry pi to a ptz camera and use gpt or huggingface to control the cameras motors camers mic and speaker to work as a movable head eyes ears and voice box so to speak. Its just a hairbrained idea but i figured id throw it out there to see if anyone has ideas on the subject. The cam i have is a heimvision hm203 and i have a rpi 4b plus a laptop using windows 10 and a cellphone using android 10, plus i live within walking distance of a dollar store so i can buy basic usb cables and the like. I would love to see what ideas people have.

Ps sorry for the typos i suck at typing on touch screens

Recommendations for beginner project- Theramin or Laser Harp?

This summer I want to create a small diy project that can use my basic soldering and circuitry skills, with little to no expensive electronic parts and minimal programming skills required.

Ideally it would be either a theramin or a laser harp. I have some experience with soldering- I was able to follow instructions in a class to create a working electric guitar with the materials provided.

I want to create something that looks good and can last, as well as a functional piece. So arduinos are handy but kind of ugly for this project.

I found a lot of different resources on ways to create both objects, but the instructions were a bit overwhelming. If you have any advice, equipment recommendations, or better subreddits to post this in please let me know- just wanted to pick people's brains and see if you crafty people have any advice!

Advice for small module

Hello guys! I need an advice about my prototype. I need a module. This module should pull the price information from the instant wifi and reflect the instant price. Is there a module that can do this? 4 digits is enough for me. Do you have any advice for me?

Can anyone suggest a camera that might be suitable for this?

I have a server at home with 1 PB of storage space, which can be further expanded if needed, hooked up to a VPN that allows me to remotely send files from my phone to my PC from anywhere.

I want to start a project of filming everything that happens to me 24/7 and having it uploaded to my server. Ideally I'd like a camera on a pin (or as small as possible) that I could wear to do this. Simply having the video files sent to my phone and then me having to manually upload them from my phone to my home server is also perfectly fine with me. What would be a good camera to buy for this? I have looked online and I'm not sure such cameras exist. Any suggestions?

Narrative Pin cameras are no longer supported and so would not be ideal for me as I'd like something with current manufacturer support.

Safest most secure least hackable phone option that doesn’t cost a bomb

I heard the safest most affordable phone option is a pixel with a different operating system installed. Is this correct or does anyone have better options?
