Sad news to hear today that Sir Clive Sinclair has died. The man created the ZX80, ZX81 and ZX Spectrum(s) personal computers which were very popular in the UK and which a great deal of people learned to code with. A huge loss to the world but what a great legacy he has left !   https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-58587521

Original issue:  PS4 HDMI Port Failure  The HDMI port of my son's 5 year old PS4 had a couple of bent pins that would push back into the unit.  In turn, it had no display.  I found a replacement port for… (Show more)

n this tutorial, it is demonstrated how to use the tinkercad to create a simple Arduino interfacing using Arduino Uno, Breadboard, LED and a resistor. Also, it is shown how to program using the block language. Later the same simulation is shown using the Maker Uno.
