A postcard or post card is a rectangular piece of thick paper or thin cardboard intended for writing and mailing without an envelope. There are novelty exceptions, such as wood postcards, made of thin wood, and copper postcards sold in the Copper Country of the U.S. state of Michigan, and coconut "postcards" from tropical islands.

In some places, it is possible to send them for a lower fee than for a letter. Stamp collectors distinguish between postcards (which require a stamp) and postal cards (which have the postage pre-printed on them). While a postcard is usually printed by a private company, individual or organization, a postal card is issued by the relevant postal authority.

MCUs dive downscale into lower cost applications.

Cost reduction is clearly the name of the game in putting in an MCU. IT is true that it can lower cost and increase the number of features, but probably the quality and durability of the product will be "reduced a bit".

Consider one of those applications, the tire gage, now battery powered and digital readout. But is it more accurate? It might be more accurate if it was actually calibrated, but if not, there is probably not much gain. The main challenge is how well will it work after sitting in the glove box for a year. A decent machanical gage will be as good as ever, the battery on the digital gage may be very weak, causing poor accuracy or even total inoperation. The digitalm gage may not have temperature compensation built in, and the cheap pressure sensor is probably very temperature sensitive. So while the readability of a digital gage has been provided, the accuracy of a good mechanical gage is missing. And it probably costs more as well.

Impressive Cost Reduction

From a mechanical engineer's perspective, this is great news.  Smaller electronics = smaller enclosures and lighter weight products.  We've dabbled with some low-cost wireless MCUs at my workplace.  So much capability in a tiny package.  Charles, do you know if there is a preferred programming language that the new low-cost components are using (or that the the manufacturer's are steering their customers toward)?

Acne treatments

Your opening hook got me, Chuck, specially the part about acne treatments. It's quite impressive the list of applications for microcontrollers. The cost factor has to be one ofthe reasons the range of applications is so wide.

Thanksgiving is a time for family. A time for togetherness. A time for… tech?
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
Researchers have developed a new flexible fabric that integrates both movement and sensors, introducing new potential for technology-embedded clothing and soft robots.
Made by Monkeys highlights products that somehow slipped by the QC cops.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
