What is this “UART” thing I’m talking about? It’s a way to “talk” with different devices. For example: I have a radar module. It can “see” through walls, and detect even the slightest movement. …and it has UART interface.
But I just really liked these two articles I’m about to point you to. I was doing research for my new book project… (which is a book about electronics for kids) …when I came across them. 1) First of all — what is it that capacitors store?
It’s very early in the morning. My freshly brewed Colombian coffee is on sitting on my desk. And I’m browsing through some sites to see what is going on in the electronics world. I just came across an article about Adafruit’s prototype of a new microcontroller board.
Time flies by so fast! I feel like I just unpacked my stuff here in Medellin. But now I’m already at my fourth week in this amazing city. And boy have I a lot of projects that are keeping me busy these days! Another weekend is here and why not use the weekend for building […]
Today I built an electronic code lock. And man, am I tired now. The code lock is for a new project I’ve been working on since the beginning of this year. I have briefly mentioned it earlier, without saying what it is. I’m very close to completion now, so I guess I can say a […]
I got my pocket full of components. Ready for my weekend project! In the middle of Medellin in Colombia, I found a small shopping centre with lots of stores with components and tools for building electronics! My Spanish is not very good. Which can be a bit frustrating at times. But I’m learning.
Mmmmm, I love the smell of coffee. My Colombia coffee is next to me. And I’m ready to start the day. But many mornings, I like to read about what’s going on in the world. And when I say ‘the world’, I’m talking about the electronics world of course
I’m sitting in my room in Colombia. It’s hot, but a big fan in the roof helps a lot. Sometimes the weekend is the only time for building projects. So since it’s Friday — here are some cool projects for you, to get inspired by:
I was sitting in a brightly lit room in New York. People were looking over at me, trying to figure out what I was doing. In front of me on the table, I had a breadboard and a bunch of components. My goal was to build a coin tosser, without making it too complicated.
