From Copycat To Maker

Few experiences can compete with the awe and wonder inspired by a visit to China. The magnitude and scale is beyond anything familiar here in the United States to the point that touching ground in JFK, LAX or SFO all feel infrastructurally and technologically dated. And, the old school stereotype of a lethargic state-run Communist China, well that just isn’t true. China is not without its problems and its officials still love to meddle, but even its inefficiencies are playing to the advantage of enterprising entrepreneurs.

The Zubi Flyer is a toy for kids and expected to be thrown, dropped, and who knows what else.  We tested the parts over concrete with a PCB in place throwing long distances to ensure the lid wasn't going to pop off or loosen during play or when hit against another object. The Zubi Flyer protects and secures the PCB and it flies great!!

What Is Light Diffraction

What Is Light Diffraction

September 07, 2017

Diffraction is the bending of waves around obstacles, or the spreading of waves by passing them through an aperture, or opening. Any sort of energy that travels in a wave is capable of diffraction, and the diffraction of light and sound waves produces a range of effects.  Sound waves are much bigger than light waves, however, so diffraction of sound is a part of everyday life that most people today take for granted.  Diffraction of light waves, on the other hand, is a lot more complex, and has a range of applications in science and technology, including the use of diffraction gratings in the creation of holograms.

The Best Kind of Toys for Kids

August 25, 2017

If you were lucky as a kid you had the opportunity to turn a cardboard box into anything from a rocket ship to school bus!  Watching my kids play makes me want to light their toys all on the fire and dance around the ashes, then cancel Christmas.  The reality is that the imagination of a child is much more entertaining than anything that I could buy from the store.  And, as it turns out, science shows strong evidence that my evil plan might actually not be that evil at all.

Microcontroller Specs 

The Zubi Flyer is the bomb dot com for makers: 5 PWM pins, 12 DIOs as well as hardware serial connections Rx and Tx. Running at 16MHz and 5V. The onboard switch-mode boost regulator is designed to operate on 3 Volts.  Power can be supplied from a 3 Volt CR123A battery or from a USB cable that provides regulated +5 Volts DC to the board. Do not run any power exceeding 5 Volts as the regulator cannot handle step-down voltage.
