Defend Your Base with Simple Circuits, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi
Where will you be when the zombie apocalypse hits? Trapping yourself in the basement? Roasting the family pet? Beheading reanimated neighbors? No way. Youll be building fortresses, setting traps, and hoarding supplies, because you, savvy survivor, have snatched up your copy of The Maker's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse before its too late. This indispensable guide to survival after Z-day, written by hardware hacker and zombie anthropologist Simon Monk, will teach you how to generate your own electricity, salvage parts, craft essential electronics, and out-survive the undead. Take charge of your environment: - Monitor zombie movement with trip wires and motion sensors - Keep vigilant watch over your compound with Arduino and Raspberry Pi surveillance systems - Power zombie defense devices with car batteries, bicycle generators, and solar power Escape imminent danger: - Repurpose old disposable cameras for zombie-distracting flashbangs - Open doors remotely for a successful sprint home - Forestall subplot disasters with fire and smoke detectors Communicate with other survivors: - Hail nearby humans using Morse code - Pass silent messages with two-way vibration walkie-talkies - Fervently scan the airwaves with a frequency hopper For anyone from the budding maker to the keen hobbyist, The Makers Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse is an essential survival tool.
