I spent some time understanding this, especially coming from a C,NET, vbscript background the logic behind functions in powershell just baffled me. Last year, Twende conducted its first workshop introducing LEDs and basic circuitry to secondary school students aged 16 and 17. Twende’s electronics team goes to a school with basic components like LEDs, resistors, switches, potentiometers and 9V batteries and teaches very basic current and voltage knowledge as students make very simple electronics circuits.
When you can buy it: Neither the interior or the exterior features of the car are ready for production, but the company says the self-driving technology and the gesture-controlled system will be a part of BMW’s regular production in the coming years.
I played with electronics kits from a very early age, and as a teenager spent countless hours soldering and desoldering stuff (mostly the latter even, there was a great little store that sold random circuit boards for cheap that I had a lot of fun taking apart and trying to figure out what the different components were).
Researchers at the Adachi and Nakanotani laboratory are continuing to study the underlying physics of the processes and to develop new materials with the goal of creating new types of exciton-based organic electronics that operate in ways not possible with conventional devices.
A quick scan of the entire book and a read of the first few pages tells me that although the material is quite dry (compared to Make: Electronics), it should be very useful. You can look at a lot of Chinese electronics as copies, but another way to see it is that they are learning and catching up with how to produce the best quality devices. Before cutting out the wood for the shell of the robot, I figured it might be wise to actually wire up the schematic first and see if I can get all the electronics to work. But their electronics don’t come in direct contact with bodily fluids because they are enclosed in hermetically sealed stainless steel and sprayed with chemicals that inhibit the body’s immune response (which would otherwise reject them). New Electronics are organisers of the annual British Engineering Excellence Awards The awards are in their third year and aim to promote the success of British companies competing on a global scale.
