Rob,

Thanks for the kind words in the article. I look forward to teaching the class to the Design News audience next week.

I agree. I have used several microcontrollers like the TI MSP430, Maxims DSC89C450 (8051), and Microchip PICs for consumer and automotive electronic products with somewhat of a steep learning curve. The Arduino platform makes development of the ATMega328 microcontroller easy to rapidly prototype electronic product applications. Since introducing the Arduino to my Electrical Engineering Technology students in 2012, it has been the microcontroller development platform of choice for creating their Capstone projects. Hope you can join next weeks Design News Getting Started with Arduino CEC course.

I designed a variable frequency pulsating power supply in digital and analog ICs the way I have always done projects for 30 years. But I was having problems relating BCD switch to output frequency in some crossover points and it was a hassle. Then I discovered ARDUINO, I'm not a software guy, having had one C/c++ class 18 years ago, but it didn't take much to not only have it go from 2-999 Hz from a keypad, without an oscillator circuit, but I had a digital readout with text besides! Wow! All for <$30! I spent $150 on the circuit board I had made on the original effort plus stuffing the board and parts! Plus, I now have a new skill! I'm sold on Arduino!

Some of our culture's most enduring robots appeared in the 80s. The Aliens series produced another evil android, and we saw light robot fare in the form of Short Circuit. Two of the great robots of all time also showed up: The Terminator and RoboCop.
A soundproofing invention called Acoustiblok recently won a television challenge to silence an air horn with only a fraction of an inch of polymer material.
Robots came into their own in the 1970s. Gone were the low-budget black-and-white B movies. Now robots roamed in full-color feature films with A-list actors.
Major global metropolitan areas are implementing a vast number of technology, energy, transportation, and Internet projects to make the metropolis a friendlier, greener, safer, and more sustainable place to be.
Here’s a look at robots depicted in movies and on TV during the 1950s and 1960s. We tried to collect the classics here, omitting the scores of forgettable B movies such as Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. Stay tuned for slideshows of robot stars from later decades.
