Student's dream

This looks like a student's dream - that is both affordable and portable. I can also see electronics enthusiasts utilizing this at home. I like the community aspect that encourages students to stretch themselves and explore new options - an inherent trait required for every budding test engineer. The bazaar provides free applications and the backyard provides source code and tools for application development. Back in the day as a student I had an 20MHz Hitachi o'scope and a serviceable function generator I bought at a swap meet. Those days are gone and this meets a real need in education. I wouldn't mind having one to play with myself, but unfortunately we will have to wait until December - that is if they remain on track according to the schedule on their web page.

You know how silly fashionistas queue up outside of Apple stores to buy the latest iPhone? Well sadly I would be queuing outside this guy's home for a Red Pitaya. It is simply one of the nicest and most sorely needed tools I've seen in years. And the price is in the sweet zone that will guarantee huge sales. Superb.

I think the days of the $50,000 dollar O-scope are over. Tools like this make everything faster and more manageable.

During a teardown of the iPad Air and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Show in Schaumburg, Ill., an engineer showed this "inflammatory" video about the dangers of maliciously mishandling lithium-ion batteries.
It's been two years since the Mac Mini's last appearance on iFixit's teardown table, but a newly revised version joins Apple's lineup this week.
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
