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."

Well, things are definitely going at a brisk pace here in the Pleasure Dome (my office). As you may recall from my previous blog on this topic, my chum Duane Benson and I decided to create our own prototyping shield for the Arduino. Originally, we dubbed this the Bodacious Bensonfruit Arduino Un......

As I mentioned in my previous blog about a wheelchair project on Indiegogo, I just got an email from my chum Mark Dobrosielski. In relation to giving insulin to a diabetic dog, he was kind enough to say: "Congratulations on being a dog hero. You managed to add humour in your reporting of a si......

My chum Mark Dobrosielski, an embedded systems designer who works for a defence contractor (that's all I'm allowed to say), just sent me an email. Mark pointed me at a rather interesting design company called ModVic, which was founded by Bruce and Melanie Rosenbaum and is located in Sharon......

I previously wrote a blog about a Kickstarter project that excited me so. I think this smart Nixie Tube concept is a really great idea. So do a lot of other folks, apparently. This Kickstarter project is already funded to twice its original goal, and it still has 13 days to go at the time of this ......

I was just browsing the Kickstarter.com website (as you do) for various projects when I ran across an amazingly cool project that mixes two of my favourite things—Arduinos and Nixie Tubes. What we have is a module containing an Arduino-compatible controller with a Nixie Tube on top: In......
