Hey there, Wheelies. What's up? It's your old pal WheelGenius here.

This site will remain up for everyone's viewing pleasure. So, there's no need to fret. My deviations are still available. Just click on the "Gallery" link.


Happy 69th Birthday to Pat Sajak.Airborne

What do you think of the glittery glow? Notice how easy it is to recreate this logo with the help of Photoshop. I'll bet the CBS computerized graphics department had these kinds of tools.
Harpers vs. Van Courtlands - 1983 by wheelgenius
Harpers vs. Van Courtlands - 1983
Remember that episode of "Mama's Family" where the Harpers went to compete against the Van Courtlands on "Family Feud"? Thelma (Vicki Lawrence) refused to kiss Richard Dawson.
To all my good friends, especially germanname, I want to wish you all the happiest new year here on deviantART. Nuff said.Airborne

I have an idea:

This may seem advanced to you, but if you get to know the ropes of this project, you'll get it done in no time!

Also, take note that you will be working with a hot soldering gun, so use caution!

You will need several 6V miniature wire-lead bulbs, soldering skills, Arduino coding skills, Arduino UNO or better module, basic knowledge of electrical hookup, a soldering gun (25 to 40 watts), rosin core solder, hookup wire (to send signals to the bulbs), a desoldering tool (in case you make a mistake), sticky tape (to hold the bulbs down as you solder them in place), and a pre-drilled circuit board (to place the bulbs on, with the wire leads going through the pre-drilled holes).

To get started, arrange 35 bulbs on the board in a five-by-seven matrix. Place each bulb in the pre-drilled hole set on the board. After all the bulbs are in place, tape all of the bulbs down onto the board. Then, proceed to solder all of the leads onto the board - be careful not to let multiple leads touch - if this happens, take your desoldering tool, touch the soldering gun to the excess solder, and squeeze the bulb of the desoldering tool. After soldering everything in place, it's time to hook everything up - depending on your configuration, you can connect one set of lines by using solder on two points that do not create a short-circuit on a bulb, and another set of lines by using wires. Connect all of the row and column pins with color-coded wire - rows would be colored red, and columns are green. The common wire is black. To hook your creation up to an Arduino, you need to connect the wires as follows:

Digital Bus
R1: 2
R2: 3
R3: 4
R4: 5
R5: 6
R6: 7
R7: 8
C1: 9
C2: 10
C3: 11
C4: 12
C5: 13

Then, download the software for your Arduino module from, plug your Arduino module into your computer using a USB cable, and start coding with your newly created eggcrate digit!

(The old set of Wheel of Fortune used eggcrate displays for the contestants' scores.)

Here's something 'new' from the Aussie version :D

(I won't be able to reply until Wednesday or Thursday since I'm on vacation in Fiji, sorry about that)
