The goose bump sensor being tested by a lucky volunteer (via KAIST) There is a new sensor being developed by a South Korean firm which can actually detect goose bumps of varying sizes and the length of time in which the goose bumps persist.   KAIST in Daejeon, South Korea is utilizing a clear, conductive polymer to measure variances in electrical capacity due to the obstruction of its surface from goose bumps. The patch is seen in the photo above, stuck to the skin of a willing parti ...
OK, Great feedback from the Sunshine test for these multimeter's from Agilent, I did not have time when shooting the previous video to do an indoor version too, so now I have   As you will see the OLED display wins hands down regarding visibility and so for indoor use it comes down to a simple choice   High Visibility but low battery life (60+ Hrs) or good visibility and excellent battery life (200+ Hrs)   See for yourself here:     Enjoy   Hope you like i ...
A few days ago I watched an excellent Agilent WEB Cast regarding sampling signals using ADC devices basically. This was focused around Agilent Equipment but the principals presented some very interesting possibilities that could be applied to any electronic project that involves an ADC.   The video describes more than you will need to know about Nyquest principals and sampling etc   Did you know that by UNDER sampling you could effectively demodulate an AM Signal, well your not alone ...
I happened to be out back filming content for my summer project, tThe Electronic Referee and I needed to check a voltage on my test rig, I had a choice of an OLED meter or the LCD   I decided to video a quick test to see which is most usable in the sunshine. Indoors the OLED is an excellent and readable meter. Specification wise of course there both the same aside from battery life   So here is my findings   Enjoy   Peter ...
University of Illinois Electronic Skin is perfect for medical diagnostics. (via University of Illinois) Wearable computing has gained momentum since the beginning of the 21st century with companies like Google, Sony and Apple bringing augmented reality glasses and smart-watches to the commercial markets annually. Even the medical industry is manufacturing devices patients can wear to monitor their health, such as the iPhone ECG from AliveCor that turns the smartphone into an electrocardiogram ...
Consider this scenario in which Dave and CJ have been working on a design that uses a Li-Ion battery charger chip. They have been collaborating between their labs; CJ in Madison, WI and Dave in Denver, CO. As with any remote development the snags are more difficult to deal with, so they use the Fluke Connect functionality of their Fluke 3000 FC and Fluke V3000 FC meters to ease data sharing and communication. Here is a situation where they were able to put the datalogging, live sharing, and vide ...

Fluke Connect With A Single User: CJ and Dave wanted to get to know the Fluke Connect gear pretty well before trying to collaborate on their joint project. They start with If the units don’t work for the single user case for real measurements, they won’t stand a chance with collaborations. They will take you through how useful the tech was in their own labs using meters like the FLK-03000 FC, FLK V3000FC, and FLK A3000 FC.   Dave's Story: Hi measurement geeks! Dave here to exp ...
