  • Poster child for the evils of leaded solder fumes. Please don’t let this happen to you…

  • Nice presentation! I’d love to see a followup on the fun, but dangerous, applications of inductors (maybe a field trip to the Tesla museum in CoSpgs? and an explanation of wireless charging?). On the other hand, this might be better left to the anonymous youtube posts.

    Given the outrageously hot June in Boulder, how about a live demo with suitable “volunteers”, of the duality of voltage/current versus water pressure/flow?

    P.S. Transistor Man rocks, but jumbo paisleys are sweet too.

  • Many years ago, I saw an awesome artwork installation with a bunch of blinking LEDs on poles (Great Dome Gallery, MIT ‘83). At first it seemed amusing but not especially artistic. Then, as you swept your head away to leave, those blinking poles all spelled out messages and graphics. Think of a multiplexed X-Y display but only displayed in Y with your eyes and head movement doing the X scan. And who says that all that time spent at the Thirsty Ear was wasted…
    Please post a video if you follow thru. Cheers, Bob
