Not that I'm biased, but w00t!

Can a Teensy 3.2 board be used as a quick and dirty function signal generator? All sines point to yes!

I'm a long time PC gamer, but I bought an Xbox One earlier this year. The idea was to get off the upgrade treadmill and banish Windows from my PC. Adjusting to the coarseness of the controls and viewing distance from the display wasn't easy, so the console mostly languished.

Enter Fallout 4. This game gives me a reason to persevere with the console. I'm getting better with the controls and VATS makes combat reasonable. My aging eyes can actually read the screen text fairly well compared to some games. I've moved my couch forward a bit to help even more.

The crafting, settlement building, and useful scrounging add a lot of enjoyment for OCD me. I used to just collect and sell everything to accumulate mad caps. The game has crashed once so far, which I've learned to expect from the Fallout franchise. Having great fun!

Awesome. I've actually gone the other way and now have 2 steam machines in my house. Playing fallout 3 on a TV is awesome, especially with a steam controller.

The one stop light in my town.

There is only a single home on the other side of this active rail line. Access is from a state road, and the tracks and main road curve to allow an overpass not far from here. At the crossing, the foliage and curvature of the tracks affords very little visibility. It all feels a bit wrong.

There's always one. Get out of the road, you turkey! Don't they even realize what season it is?

We get families of ducks and geese from the nearby manmade lake blocking traffic on my street. They just saunter across the road, taking their sweet time.

It's like they know they're a protected species and are saying "whaddaya gonna do ... shoot me?"

Bastards.

Getting Intermediate with Arduino
There's a wealth of information out there on getting started with the Arduino microcontroller, development environment, and basic electronics. So you've interfaced with LEDs, sensors, and modules. You've written sketches to do digital input and output, anal...

Please pardon my joyful ululation, but I have received the surprise gift of an ulu!

I've vaguely wanted one ever since I went to Nunavut. This particular form should be quite practical. Thanks so much mom +Barbara Hayes! My vast array of kitchen gear is now complete.

That has got to be the most awesome way to chop stuff!

Low Power Voltage Sampling
The car computer project has taken a big detour for the last few months in lieu of my gaining more experience with microcontrollers and electronics. Carputer 2015 was mostly a system integration design to be achieved by plugging together existing modules. C...

Something for my metal brothers and sisters. The light was just right as I passed, so I had to stop for a photo.

Carputer 2015 - September Status
Time rolls on and the car computer has yet to roll. I've been having way too much fun interfacing and developing for Arduino. Still, everything else is ready to go, so expect the rolling demo video and blog post sometime next week. Here's a quick summary of...

+Que Onda always good to hear from someone else who's into this stuff. Yes, this project is still alive! I've just kept digging deeper into the custom electronics and microcontroller side of things because that lets me build anything I want. It's addictive. Thanks for the encouragement to get back to the rolling demo.

DC Power Conversion
With so much interest in mobile electronics these days, Makers are tossing aside their long despised AC adapters and turning to DC power. Unfortunately, DC sources tend to fluctuate or be comprised of multiple cells that produce voltages not directly usable...
