Motorized Obsessions

Life, Liberty, and the Small-Bore Engine
Author: Paul R. Josephson
Publisher: JHU Press
ISBN: 9780801886416
Category: History
Page: 258
View: 6411
From dirt bikes and jet skis to weed wackers and snowblowers, machines powered by small gas engines have become a permanent—and loud—fixture in American culture. But fifty years of high-speed fun and pristine lawns have not come without cost. In the first comprehensive history of the small-bore engine and the technology it powers, Paul R. Josephson explores the political, environmental, and public health issues surrounding one of America's most dangerous pastimes. Each chapter tells the story of an ecosystem within the United States and the devices that wreak havoc on it—personal watercraft (PWCs) on inland lakes and rivers; all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) in deserts and forests; lawn mowers and leaf blowers in suburbia. In addition to environmental impacts, Josephson discusses the development and promotion of these technologies, the legal and regulatory efforts made to improve their safety and environmental soundness, and the role of owners' clubs in encouraging responsible operation. Synthesizing information from medical journals, recent environmental research, nongovernmental organizations, and manufacturers, Josephson's compelling history leads to one irrefutable conclusion: these machines cannot be operated without loss of life and loss of habitat.

Create Mobile, Sensor-Aware, and VR Applications Using Processing
Author: Andrés Colubri
Publisher: Apress
ISBN: 1484227190
Category: Computers
Page: 381
View: 675
Learn how to use the Processing programming language and environment to create Android applications with ease. This book covers the basics of the Processing language, allowing users to effectively program interactive graphics in 2D and 3D. It also details the application of these techniques to different types of Android devices (smartphones, tablets, wearables and smartwatches). Processing for Android walks you through the steps of taking an initial idea to a final app. With this book, you will be able to write engaging apps with interactive visuals driven by motion and location information obtained from the device’s sensors; including health data from the wearer, like step count and heart rate. An advantage of Processing for Android over more complex programming environments is the ability for users to focus on the interactions and visual output of their code rather than in the implementation details of the Android platform. This book goes through a comprehensive series of hand-on projects, ranging from simple sketches to more complex projects involving sensors and integration with larger apps. It also covers important aspects such as exporting your Processing projects as signed apps are ready to upload to the Google Play store and be share with the world! What You'll Learn Write apps and live wallpapers for smartphones and tablets Design and implement interactive watch faces Create Virtual Reality experiences for Cardboard devices Integrate Processing sketches into larger apps and Android Studio Export projects as completed apps ready to distribute through Google Play Store Who This Book Is For Artists, designers, students, researchers, and hobbyists who are not necessarily Android experts, but are looking to write mobile apps that make creative use of interactive graphics, sensor data, and virtual reality.

“Passionate, lyrical, and deeply humane, this tale of two sisters caught in a war without end moves effortlessly through space and time . . . an astonishing first novel.” —Andrea Barrett Marianna watches her older sister Alaine collect the detritus of war from around Beirut—bullets, shrapnel, grenades, a gas mask. These objects, some taken from dead bodies, catalogue Alaine’s retreat into a dangerous depression. As the family struggles to endure the daily violence of the Middle East conflict, it is Marianna who becomes her older sister’s keeper, watching for any signal that might trigger one of Alaine’s frequent, grim excavations. But once the family escapes to America, Alaine’s newfound contentment is as alien to Marianna as her madness once was. As Marianna longs for her beloved, war-torn home, she struggles to understand that now she is the difficult sister. In lyrical, dreamlike prose, The Bullet Collection by Patricia Sarrafian Ward mines both the stunning, exotic landscape of Beirut and the pure, defiant landscape of a child’s heart, and shows how war leaves its indelible scars on both.

Make Your Own Diagnostic Equipment (MYODE)This book, “Make Your Own Diagnostic Equipment” came about from the need of many readers and viewers to be able to make and maintain fairly simple diagnostic gadgets. It is meant to show and guide the professional technician and DIY mechanic on how to make these gadgets. In many cases, due to the nature of the equipment industry, it is very expensive or virtually impossible to get these tools. The reason being is that often times tool makers don't see a profit in making these simple but effective gadgets. Most, if not all of these tools, are invaluable in diagnosing modern automotive systems. You can estimate that having one of these tools, at the right time when needed, will cut your diagnostic time by at least 50%. Of course, knowing how to use it is also important. However, by definition if you've already studied how the gadget works, how to build it an also ended up building it yourself, you've already passed the learning curve and chances are you'll know how to use it. At the very least, reading this book will put you in a much better position to also asses diagnostic issues and on the use of other important tools of automotive diagnostics. It is our hope with this work to enlighten the professional and DIY mechanic on the use, construction and operation of modern automotive diagnostic gadgets. Use this information to the beast of your abilities and be on the diagnostic driver seat.Table of Contents• Automotive Low Pressure Transducer • Building the Low Pressure Transducer • Using the Low Pressure Transducer • Polarity LED Test Light • Using the Polarity LED Test Light • Stress Loaded Test Light • Using the Stress Loaded Test Light • Building the Stress Loaded Test Light • Fuel-Pump Relay & the Stress Loaded Test Light • Dual Polarity & 5 Volt Reference Test Light • Amplified Sensor Tester • Injector & Coil Magnetic Detector • Fuel Injector Pulser • ECM-ECU Memory Saver Tool• Loaded Injector Noid Light • Using the Loaded Injector Noid Light • 5 Volt Reference Simulator • Parasitic Draw Amp Meter • Using the Parasitic Draw Amp Meter • Fuse Voltage Drop Short Identifier • How to Use the Fuse Voltage Drop Short Identifier • Ignition Primary DIS - COP Probe • How to Use the Ignition Primary DIS Probe • Drive-By-Wire Motor Actuator Controller • How to Use the Drive-By-Wire Actuator Controller • Ignition Key Transponder Detector • Using the Ignition Key Transponder Detector • Magnetic Sensor Induction Simulator • Using the Magnetic Sensor Induction Simulator • O2 Sensor Simulator • Using the O2 Sensor Simulator• ABS Speed Sensor Simulator • Using the ABS Speed Sensor Simulator • ABS Speed Sensor Simulator, Bleeding the Brakes • Optical CAM and CRANK Sensor Simulator • Using the Optical CAM and CRANK Sensor Simulator • OBD-2 Data Link Connector Breakout Box • Using the OBD-2 DLC Breakout Box
