Welcome to HobbyWare.Org. This is a collection of my programs and projects which are free downloads to anyone who wants them.

This months update was an article on basic artifical intelligence. Specifically how to construct a markov chain using simple sentence fed to the program and then have it output a semi-intellegent, semi grammatically correct reply. This is a great way to create a chat bot or other social bot of some type, I go over the basic theory, how to setup your database, the restrictions of markov chains and how to potentially impove the markov chain process. You read the article under the Computers heading sub-heading artifical intellegence then clicking the button for Markov Chains.

Last months update to the site was a computer operated coil gun turret. The turret is controlled by a program on your computer which talks to an Arduino Uno, you can control the base of the turret to aim in a certain direction and you can also control the angle of the barrel so that it shoots the target you are aiming for. The turret is 3d printed and all the files required to make the project are open source so you can make one of your own. Check out the article and the demonstration video under the projects heading, subheading Coil Gun Turret.

Previous updates to the site is a Tobacco Curing Chamber. In the next couple years I wanted to take on tobacco growing as a hobby. During this process there comes a time when the tobacco must be aged in warm humid conditions. The objective of this project is to provide a small space where I can introduce a suitable environment for the curing to begin. This project is not yet fully completed, but I have completed the design portion of the curing chamber. Over the next year or so I expect this project will be fully built and working. To see the progress so far go to the Projects heading and select Tobacco Curing button.
