Making of a New Nixie Tube

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 02:46:38 +0000

A Nixie Tube is an old piece of technology, Dalibor Farný has resurrected the old technology by working through the techniques to build new tubes by hand. The video shows the tedious process of the low volume creation of them. Lots of complex mechanical steps are needed from spot welding to glass blowing is needed. “The nixie tube […]



Food Robots

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 01:16:47 +0000

  We have seen some food robots before. Looks like we might be on the verge where the robots are going to be used for what they are good for such as show in the video where the robot spreads pizza sauce perfectly or can finally pick apples as good as a human. Just as […]



Adafruit PCB Manufacturing Line

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 00:22:56 +0000

  The Adafruit PCB Manufacturing Line is quite impressive. Ladyada (Limore Fried) goes through the entire process start to finish describing what each piece in the line does.

PID Controller Theory

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 05:07:06 +0000

    Dave 2 over at the EEVBlog explains how PID works. Wikipedia also has some great info.     “A proportional–integral–derivative controller (PID controller or three term controller) is a control loop feedback mechanism widely used in industrial control systems and a variety of other applications requiring continuously modulated control. A PID controller continuously […]



DIY LIPO Battery Spot Welding

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 05:19:31 +0000

  WeAreTheWatt is building a DIY LIPO Battery Spot Welding project. The construction is very nice. The PCB is very well laid out but of course even with a very heavy copper clad board it would not be able to handle the amount of current he needs. Heavy bus bars are used to pass the current through […]
