My trip to Shenzen [VIDEO] - Build Electronic Circuits

“We’re never going to make it!”
Jensa (from the hackerspace Bitraf) and I arrived early at the airport in Oslo. But that didn’t help.
Our flight from Oslo had technical problems...

We made sound. And it wasn’t all pretty.

Playdate with Captain Credible - Build Electronic Circuits

Yesterday I met up with Captain Credible who is a musician known for his violently eccentric live performances and arsenal of homemade instruments.

We created some really cool circuits together for creating sound.

I have a playdate! - Build Electronic Circuits

I met Captain Credible. He’s a Norwegian musician and electronics enthusiast.
And he is definitely something out of the ordinary (in a good sense).

Coding and coffee - Build Electronic Circuits

I am a coffee lover. And these days, I am surrounded by the smell of coffee almost every day.
But no – I am not working from cafes these days (even though I love that too).
The thing is that I am hired to help with the electronics of the Norwegian coffee roaster Roest.

Build a color-changing mini-lamp - Build Electronic Circuits

If you want to build advanced things like internet-connected gadgets and more, you need to use a microcontroller.
The easiest way to get started with microcontrollers is using the Arduino.

What's the fastest way to build prototypes? - Build Electronic Circuits

Yesterday I met Martin.
He is a consultant that finds and fixes problems with pipes.
So he has these devices that he places into tubes that will scan the pipes or give images from inside the pipes.

Is it really just a wire? - Build Electronic Circuits

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…

Alarm clock prototype - Build Electronic Circuits

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…

Do you make this mistake? - Build Electronic Circuits

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.

How To Use Breadboards [VIDEO] - Build Electronic 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.
