Snap, smile and click! Atmel has kicked off its long-awaited Tech on Tour...
On March 8th, the Chinese American Semiconductor Professionals Association (CASPA) held a symposium titled “The Wearable Future: Moving Beyond the Hype; the Search for the Holy Grail and Practical Use Cases.” As SemiWiki’s Daniel Nenni notes in a recent blog post, the symposium, hosted at the Intel HQ Auditorium in Santa Clara, was standing room […]
Last week, Bits & Pieces got up close and personal with the Atmegatron, an 8-bit mono synth powered by Atmel’s ATmega328P microcontroller (MCU). Today, we’re going to be taking a closer look at the Tannin, a DIY MIDI controller built around the Atmel-based Arduino Nano (ATmega328). Deisgned by Shantea, the system is equipped with 16 potentiometers, […]
A British lecturer at the University of Surrey has proposed a “virtual ride to space” using a weather ballon equipped with an Atmel-based, Arduino-powered payload. “A weather balloon will carry 24 HD video cameras up to a 20km altitude in order to reconstruct an immersive ride to space,” Aaron Knoll wrote in a recent Kickstarter post. […]
My buddy Wayne Yamaguchi sent a little update on making printed circuit boards (PCBs) at home. Wayne always was the expert on toner transfer PCBs. This is where you print your Gerber art on a special film. Then you use an iron or a hot roller to transfer the printer toner from the plastic film […]
3DLT (a platform for 3D printing as-a-service) and Amazon are teaming up for a pilot program to sell 3D printed products on the wildly popular online retailer’s website. The products – which can be viewed and purchased here – range from fashion jewelry pieces to home decor items and tech accessories. “We’re excited by the potential […]
Kevin Boyer and Phillip James have created a device that quite literally turns water into wine in just a few days using a low amount of heat and a specialized Atmel-based, Arduino-controlled environment. “Initially we have sourced 6 wine types that The Miracle Machine and its smartphone app (iOS and Android) will help you make,” […]
