Oyvind's Maker Travels and Lifestyle
Since then, I've traveled and lived all over the world. I've been to Mexico, Colombia, USA, Australia, China, Fiji, Germany, Singapore ++. And you can read about (or see videos) of these experiences here.
In this section, you can find articles related to my travels and the lifestyle of being a maker.

We talk about a custom NAS build that hooks up a screen and buttons to an Odroid, Øyvind has been developing for nRF52-something and finally we discuss some basic electronic stuff that we ought to know.
We talk about the new Arduino Polenta and how DisplayPort over USB C might be implemented. We also talk about the $42 Etepon scope vs the $3500 Siglent SDS5034x scope.
This time we discuss debugging circuits, both simple and advanced. And we talk about 3D printer electronics.
Elias and Oyvind met up in Spain to record their first-ever podcast. Are USB circuits hard? And what makes an oscilloscope expensive?
I went to Berlin with Elias Bakken. It’s such a cool city. We met up with Helen Leigh and Drew Fustini to eat kebabs, see homemade instruments, play artsy video games and learn about sewable circuits. Check out the video below!
