There is so much amazingly cool "stuff" to see and do that I'm amazed I find the time to get any real work done. In my blog I will waffle on about the books I'm reading, the projects I'm building, and the weird and wonderful websites I blunder across. Please Email Me if you see anything you think will "tickle my fancy."

Last year, I first started working with Arduino microcontroller development platforms in the form of the Rainbowduino Arduino-compatible system from Seeed Studio, which powered my 4x4x4 tri-color 3D LED cube. ? Since that time, I've become a huge supporter of the Arduino, from the conce......

It seems that my friend in Germany, Tobias Strauch, has launched an interesting crowdfunded project called Arduissimo over on Indiegogo.com. ? Tobias is a big proponent of a design realization technique he calls system hyper pipelining (SHP). Other people are interested in this. I just ......

I am really thrilled when a package arrives at my desk, especially when I'm not expecting anything. Well, an unexpected package just arrived from EETimes blogger Aubrey Kagan (a.k.a. Antedeluvian) in Canada. When I ripped this little rascal open (the package, not Aubrey), I discovered somethin......

A few weeks ago, my friend in Sweden, Sven Andersson, sent me an email. Sven is busy working on his Zynq Design From Scratch blog series. He informed me that he's already posted Part 43, in which he talks about debugging his designs using various techniques, including simulation and virtual on......

Do you remember the original Terminator movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger portraying a cyborg sent from the future to kill someone in our time? On a number of occasions during the movie, we saw the world through the cyborg's eyes, with additional information being overlaid on the scene he w......

In my previous blog on this topic, we looked into some of the delivery mechanisms that might be used to present us with augmented reality information. The next question, of course, is what sort of augmented reality information do we expect and/or want to be delivered? ? The impression I hav......

I recently heard from the folks at Maxim, who are touting a new reference design called the Alameda -- a flexible, high-accuracy 4-channel bipolar analog output that is targeted at industrial automation applications. ? Now, I fully understand the advantages of using a reference design, espe......

I like to listen to the National Public Radio (NPR) when I'm driving back and forth between my home and my office. One of the topics that's been bouncing around for the last few months is that of "net neutrality" (or lack thereof). ? The idea behind net neutrality is that ......

Well, I am quite impressed! I was just rooting around on the Autodesk 123D website, and I was fascinated by what I saw there. ? The best way to explain this is by looking at this video. Suppose you wanted to design your own Arduino shield, for example. Using this online app, which runs in y......
