When browsing around for electronics information on Arduinos and other miscellaneous stuff, I found this guy.
He has some really interesting projects, but most of all I like that he’s a nerdy tinkerer at heart, has dreads and he does crazy stuff like tattoo’ing a ruler on his arm. Come on, the dude is seriously nuts!
I have an itch to tinker with Arduino processor boards. www.arduino.cc. I think I’ll try a sprinkler controller or something like that. www.sparkfun.com has some interesting looking stuff to interface to it. Controlling LED’s is a good thing to experiment with, but I want to play with analog signals that cause digital things to happen – maybe an accelerometer or a gyroscope application. More later.
