Use MIT's App Inventor to quickly compose an app that shows the current Bitcoin Price
Go to our FREE RESOURCES page and follow the tutorial to get a glimpse at how easy it is to crank out an Android app with MIT's App Inventor.
For those who don't know, Tindie.com is a marketplace for Makers. I sell not only select educational modules, but also hobby and entertaining electronic items there as well. Head over to my store and see what I have.
These are great, low cost add-on's for the Arduino. They will give you quick access to some of the most used functions (LEDs, switches, etc). Unfortunately, they do not come with instructions. That's where we come in with help. View our free resource on how to program this useful board.
Go to the Free Resources section to see the details on this fun weekend project. Don't have an Arduino? That's ok. We sell an introduction to Arduino kit so you can get up to speed quick.
We are bathed in a soup of electromagnetic energy. It is a fascinating hobby to scan the airwaves and decode frequencies and transmissions. An easy way to do this is with a simple digital TV receiver and some software. Take the plunge into this amazing hobby.

Check out this quick intro to our piezoelectric energy harvesting lab.
Did you ever want to harness the energy that children have? Well, we do. If you have ever seen kids with light up shoes, they are not powered by batteries but by a device that converts pressure to electricity. Now you can have this same device for experimenting.
Our energy harvesting lab has all you need to experiment with turning finger taps into power. This is great for a science fair as there are a lot of variables you could investigate. Get yours today!
I have always been fascinated by digital watches. Yea, I know, pretty geeky. When smartwatches came out, I thought that it would be the coolest thing ever. But as it turned out, they just became small displays for our phones. So I set out to create a smartwatch that was a stand alone computer and could be programmed to do anything you wanted with the very popular Arduino system. I started the project as part of a contest that Atmel was doing (I did not win), but continued it to improve the original design. You can see videos of the project at my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/G1-fJkdh0o4
And you can read up on the project on my blog: http://arduinosmartwatch.blogspot.com/
And here is where I first conceived of the idea. It shows the power of a breadboard: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1kwe0kx0b4
I hope to continue to offer interesting, engaging, and educational products to help motivate and inspire nuts like me.
