Jake Rice can program his desk clock to display anything
that comes off his computer. Rice turned to the ever-popular Arduino platform
to create a multi-function clock display that presents time in Arabic numerals
(hh:mm) and in binary (hh mm ss), as well as temperature in a two-digit readout
with the degrees symbol. Since it runs off USB power through a USB to TTL
adapter, the display could be programmed to display almost any data streamed
from the host computer.
Cool project! Well done! That said, It's apparent you used "Fritzing" to create the beadboard view and the schematic view. Why isn't there a reference to it? Also, is it just me or is there no listing of your code?
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
