Learn to build your own invention with my new 8-week online training. Classes start on March 26th 2018. Enrollment opens today:
That’s the sound we were surrounded by all night.
The inductor is one of those components I’ve always found weird.
Circuits with inductors often have an explanation with lots of mathematical formulas.
But when it comes down to it…
I just finished writing a mini-eBook on the basic components used in electronics.
I’m giving it away for free to all my newsletter subscribers.
In this easy-to-read guide, you’ll learn how the basic components of electronics work. https://buff.ly/2EyZ3HW
You know the project you started, but never finished?
Yes, “that project”.
Yesterday I finished up the first version of the code. It’s an alarm clock.
At least that was the original idea. But now that it’s here, my friends at the office are finding lots of uses for it…
There is one mistake that many people make. I also did it in the beginning. Until you have sorted this out, you will have a hard time understanding circuits.
On Tuesday I was back in front of the camera.
I’m shooting new videos for my YouTube-channel.
To start, I’m shooting some videos on with basic topics that I know a lot of beginners are struggling with.
The first video shows how to use a breadboard.
I just finished the design of a “smart” rope for big ships. This rope can let the captain know how much tension it has at any given moment.
A Shopbot is a big machine that mills big things.
I got an email from Oliver in California yesterday. He’s not a pro, but very curious and interested in electronics. Now he was stuck.
I’ve been using Eagle for many years, and not really given much thought to Kicad.
Eagle worked fine for me. These are both programs for designing your own circuit boards.
But last summer...
I saw a video on Tuesday that kind of upset me. It was an electronics engineer answering questions on YouTube. Someone asked him for tips on how to learn electronics.
In this video, I will show you how to use a breadboard for connecting circuits.
Kicad vs Eagle – Which one is best? [2018 comparison]
A common decision to make for hobbyists and inventors is Kicad vs Eagle. Both of them are decent programs for designing your own Printed Circuit Boards (PCB)...
I just designed an alarm clock. This is my attempt to simplify microcontrollers...
Last days of Christmas Bundle
It includes one-year access to my digital school for electronics, where you’ll learn to invent your own devices...
Merry Christmas from Oyvind.
A cool way to learn what *not* to do.
