Finally, after more than a year of work, my newest book Electronics For Kids is in print. See where it’s available: http://www.build-electronic-circuits.com/electronics-for-kids/ So far, it has been well received.
I’m working on some system upgrades, and therefore the old links to the Build Your First Robot course are not working anymore. If you are having trouble accessing the course, use the contact form and I’ll help you out. Make sure you include the email you used when signing up for the course. Sorry for […]
The BeagleBone is a mini computer, in the size of a credit card. Very similar to a Raspberry Pi. You can connect a mouse, a keyboard and a display – and you’ll have a fully functional computer. But most people don’t buy it to use as a normal computer… …so, what is BeagleBone aside from […]
Do you think it sounds fun to build advanced robots, 3D-printers, handheld game consoles, home automation systems and much more? Well, that’s something the BeagleBone can help you with. I’m learning about it myself, and I’ve just written a “getting started”-tutorial that you can find here:
I just finished reading Getting Started With Beaglebone by Matt Richardson. I’m working on a coffee-related project where I need something more powerful than just the Arduino. The BeagleBone with its HDMI-output and whatnot, is perfect! But I had only used it a little bit several years ago. So I needed a brush-up. I didn’t […]
If you’re new to the BeagleBone, it can seem complex to get started. I’ve put together this BeagleBone Black getting started guide to help you over the first hurdle. And as you’ll see, it’s really not that hard. Confused? Check out What Is BeagleBone? My intention with the BeagleBone Black now is to use it […]
The potentiometer is a handy little component that you really should know how to use. It’s used in circuits a lot, such as to control the volume of music equipment, control the brightness of a light, and much more. If you’re not familiar with it, it can seem complicated to use in a circuit. But […]
Do you wonder what the resistor color codes on your resistor mean? Resistors have color bands on them. Usually 4 or 5. You can easily figure out the resistance value of your resistor by looking at theses bands and comparing them with the colors in the table below. Further down this page, you’ll find examples […]
