Arduino and TFT Oscilloscope.

This is a small simple oscilloscope using a Mega and a TFT display. He gives you some sample code, but you'd probably need to find a TFT display compatible to his to use it as is.  

Do a web search for Arduino Oscilloscope and you'll find many inexpensive Arduino based oscilloscope projects.

Could you create an oscilloscope just using #Arduino 's ? Martin did, and it's awesome! http://ow.ly/Ky83e

No. Not yet. He has a different TFT than I have with a different TFT library. I will have to look closer to see if the library calls are similar enough.

Happy Dogs & Cats

I've seen this one before, but it showed up again today in my "What's Hot" and it made me smile.

How dogs smell.

And, I mean, how they smell with their noise. Not how they might stink. :)

But, on the subject of stinking, there just isn't much that seems to smell bad to a dog. They really don't like glue and paint thinner type smells. But, even in that case, I'm guessing that actually has more to do with the fact that those types of odors drown out all others rather than they just don't like those smells.

Slow motion SLR shutter.

I learned something. I didn't know about the rolling shutter.
 
Really interesting video on how a camera shutter/mirror works (and in slow mo to see it better)

New Pololu Zumo 32U4 Robot Kit.

This is different from the previous Zumo kits. It includes the ATmega32U4 MCU so you aren't buying and adding an Arduino to it. But, it is still Arduino compatible. Also in addition to what Zumo already provided, it has two IR sensors, encoders for the motors, and an LCD display. The only thing you have to supply for the kit is two micro motors, and of course the effort to assemble it.  Priced at $99.
 
I am excited to announce the release of our new Zumo 32U4 Robot Kit, a complete Arduino-compatible robot kit based on the ATmega32U4. We have, in some sense, been working on this robot for about seven years.

Arduino at RadioShack 

This is my Arduino haul from the RadioShack closing sale. The Arduino items seem to be about 80% off. Most of the rest of the store is 50%.

The sale is only occurring at the stores that have been announced as closing.

I'm really sad to see these stores close.  RadioShack has been a fixture in my life for many years. They often didn't have the best pricing on everything, but they were convenient.
