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."

I just got a rather interesting email from a member of the EETimes community who prefers to remain anonymous. This message was as follows:   Hello Max, I've got a fun project idea. Since I know I will never get around to making this thing, I'm giving you the idea and the rights to t......

Young Jacob is working on programming the Arduino to make his robot's eyes flash messages in Morse code. We may have an engineer in the making.   It doesn't seem all that long ago when I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young engineer. Now I feel like an old fool, but where are w......

About a week ago ago, my chum Paul was visiting me in my office. He'd wandered over from his cubicle in the next bay to take a brief coffee break.  Paul had been admiring the current state of play of my Inamorata Prognostication Engine.   I showed him a reader's feedback about ......

I was reading this month's issue of Discover magazine a few nights ago. At the back they had a piece titled "20 Things You Didn’t Know About Galaxies." The first point was that one of the first people to speculate that the Milky Way was not the only galaxy in the universe was t......

I'm constantly amazed how time manifests its "wibbly-wobbly" nature, as Doctor Who would say. For example, I feel as though I've known Adam Taylor for decades -- in reality, however, we first came into contact just a couple of years ago... (Cue fuzzy visual effect along with a &q......

Anyone versed in the specifications of telecom protocols will recognize that they are both detailed and complex. So it is surprising -- especially given the revelations of whistle blowers such as Edward Snowdon and the current cyber security fixation -- that the Optical Transport Network (OTN) doe......

I was just meandering my way around the Adafruit.com website -- as you do -- when I stumbled upon something that made me gasp with awe and admiration (I'm just thankful I didn’t squeal with delight).   This is such a cool idea -- it's a XL741 Discrete Op-Amp Kit from those lit......

My wife (Gina The Gorgeous) and I do not always agree when it comes to our television viewing pleasure.   For example, Gina is "glued to the set" when it comes to programs like Dance Moms and 19 Kids and Counting, which I regard as absolute dross. Contrawise, I can’t get eno......

Recently, quite a few people have been inquiring about the state of play with regard to my Vetinari Clock project, so I thought this would be a good time to bring everyone up to date.   I did run into a slight problem when I discovered that one of my prize analogue meters intended for use i......

Do you have already have an idea about the ScratchDuino? This little scamp is a simple, interactive, highly customisable open-source robot construction kit based on the Arduino.   The basic kit includes two light sensors, two contact sensors, two reflective object sensors, and an infrared e......
