There are many accelerometer options for the Maker. Find out how to choose the right one for your project in Part 2 of the motion tracking series.
Accelerometers are used everywhere, but how do they work? Find out in the first part of a series taking a look at the physics of motion tracking devices.
What is Blockchain? What is Ethereum? Why is this important for the Maker? How can it replace some of the IoT architecture? In this video I'll be taking you through the basics of Bitcoin, Blockchain, and Ethereum and how it can help the Maker.
This QuickBits video will show you two ways to setup your Raspberry Pi Zero W from scratch without a keyboard or screen using WiFi or USB connectivity. This is often called a headless setup.
Episode 5 of MickMake Mates tutorial into LearningArduino builds on previous episodes and takes you further into LearningArduino. This episode covers:
- What is debounce?
- What are some ways of resolving debounce?
- What does a capacitor do?
- The start of an Uber project that merges 3 tutorials into one.
So you want to learn Arduino? So does one of my mates, Tim. In this second video episode Tim leaps into creating his first program.
Episode 8 of MickMake Mates tutorial into Learning Arduino takes a look at other types of sensors that will measure the RPM of a flywheel, dart counting and also data logging.
MickMake is teaching Tim how to program an Arduino so that he can build an automatic firing mechanism for his Nerf guns. In Episode 4 he learns about resistor colour codes, pullup resistors, potentiometers, and reading Analog data.
Episode 6 of MickMake Mates tutorial into Learning Arduino takes a walk through the code of the debounce tutorial.
So you want to learn Arduino?
One of my mates, Tim, is on a mission to do the same. In this third episode Tim looks at detecting inputs.
So you want to learn Arduino? So does one of my mates, Tim. In this first video episode you can learn along with Tim.
Sensors are important if you want to interact with the physical world.
Episode 7 of MickMake Mates tutorial into Learning Arduino looks at sensors and how they can be used in Tim's ultimate Nerf gun mod.
This is the first video in the LinuxFu series designed to take you from knowing nothing about Linux to knowing everything. This first episode we'll be looking at a bit of history, what Linux is and what makes it so special.
LoRa is the best thing since sliced bread, but how long can it last on battery? Is this new long range technology just a massive current drain? Find out in this video.
Setting up the Mosquitto MQTT Broker is pretty easy. In this video I'll show you how to setup a Broker in under 5 minutes.
Multiplexing was first used in the 1870s, but what is it and how is it used? What are the various types of multiplexing? What about keyboard matrices and Charlieplexing?
I've been asked this question a couple times. How do you program an Atmel SAM MCU without a boot loader or the Arduino IDE?
In this video I'll show you how to do this using Linux and an Atmel In-Circuit Debugger.
If you're a fan of GoLang then your options are limited in the embedded world. So, here's a couple of options for you with a working bare metal example for an STM32 MCU written entirely in Go.
How to save around US$623 by scavenging from junk. If you live in a country that has regular roadside junk collection, they can be a goldmine of electronics spare parts.
What is I2C? How does it work? This is another QuickBits video giving you a brief overview of how I2C works.
This QuickBits video I'll be taking a look at what LoRa is and why it's becoming so popular.
In this QuickBits episode we'll be seeing why MQTT was invented, what it is, how it works and why it's so popular with FaceBook, Amazon and Makers alike.
