  • A smart shoe insert? Could have a ton of sensing capability and programmed to your foot, so that you can type with your toes! There’s some obvious details that would need to be worked out, like the interface, what physical electronics would be placed (if any), and of course what kind of sensing capabilities you would want (grid resistive/capacitive/pressure/temperature/etc). The applications of the device are endless! You could make a pedometer on steroids, or maybe some kind calculator that vibrates the answer to you? Haha, yea this is kind of silly, but it just popped in!

  • did a sort of a beginner’s approach type tutorial on this IC. Definitely not as good (or polished) as some of the written guides, but it could be supplementary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FehBLNHMlfo

  • Really nice and accurate sensor that delivers the reading in many easy to use technologies. Did a tutorial with this one and an Arduino to help back your car up into your garage (using the goofy 232), ha! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4D_c3fflLU

  • If anyone interested, I recently did a few tutorials on how to build a geiger counter using the LND712: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8GIeZAxLYs

    and don’t forget your Uranium Ore! http://unitednuclear.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=2_4
