Hardhack is a term referring to the modification, cannibalization or the combination of new and/or old technologies, methods or ideas to create something different, in order to solve a problem, to improve or make more affordable.
This is a list of projects I've had time to write up, completed, currently being built or being planned, feel free to contact me about any of these projects as feedback is always welcomed.
My #2015HackadayPrize entry more details here - http://hackaday.io/project/5103-smart-dew-point-water-harvester
Harvesting clean water from air, using the cold storage of coolant when the sun shines, then using it at optimum dew-point conditions.
This cosmic ray detector works by detecting muons which are a by-product of cosmic rays hitting our atmosphere. It detects these muons using Geiger Muller tubes - the very same type of detector used in a Geiger counter to measure radiation. However, this detector uses 18 Geiger Muller tubes that are arranged in an XY array of 9 tubes oriented on an X-axis and 9 tubes on a Y-axis.
This project was an experiment to see if a multilayered array of Geiger–Müller Tubes (GMT) could track ionizing particles as they pass through. The result is an interesting display demonstrating how cosmic rays travel down through the atmosphere at different angles.
