    Arduino Love Compatibility Tester

    Arduino Love Compatibility Tester

    As we know, Matt is a sucker for retro novelties and amusement devices, so for Valentine's Day, he wanted to pay homage to the early days of the arcade with a "love tester" device. This Arduino-powered novelty determines a couple's attraction to each other by measuring the electrodermal activity between them and presenting a readout that borrows design cues from the legendary Nintendo Love Tester as well as so many blinkenlight-and-bronze-bedecked wooden cabinets dating back to the heyday of the penny arcade

    Super FX Sword using the BBC microbit

    Super FX Sword using the BBC microbit

    Frequent thrift shopper, Karen, digs into her to-be-hacked pile and pulls out a plastic sword that has an uncanny resemblance to a piece of the Guts AgroCrag (shout out to the 90s kids in the room!). In this project, Karen uses a BBC micro:bit to level up this toy by adding motion-activated light and sound effects.

    Room-Sized Studio Light Speakers Combo

    Room-Sized Studio Light Speakers Combo

    Clem likes to hear Podcasts and Music while working on element14presents videos but he’s not keen on using headphones and does not want to pump the volume to max to hear his speakers across the room. So he turns the ceiling of his workshop into a giant speaker, by building Studio panels. These Panels also reduce room noise for better audio recordings and by adding small LED lights act as soft lightboxes for filming. Dragging around big lights with softboxes is not needed anymore for a lot of shots and the right background music helps keep the groove. All in the name of better, faster project videos! Praise the everlasting Din5_180 Connector for its versatility!

    Raspberry Pi 4 CRT VR Headset

    Raspberry Pi 4 CRT VR Headset

    What would virtual reality be like if flat panel display technology were never invented? In this project, Andy uses a pair of CRTs and the Raspberry Pi 4 to build a VR headset with stereoscopic 3D, 3DOF head tracking, and custom, browser-based software. It may not be practical but it's definitely unique and guaranteed to have no screen door effect

Referred by a friend, stayed for the charm

As someone who is actively teaching myself everything I can possibly learn about hardware engineering and construction, as well as software development, I really enjoy this show.

My friend referred me to it a while back, and up till now I’ve been checking it out every once in a while on YouTube. I now look forward to enjoying through this platform as well.
