I admit it ain't too creative but I really wanted to know if the purple flames from my accidental destruction of a Tantalum cap was a fluke.

I saw in Wikipedia that the flame test for tantalum is in deed blue so fancied a go at it and also it was an excuse to do some slow mo on my GoPro Hero 4( only 4x slow down though!). is Christmas after all

Had an email from XMOS yesterday advertising their latest competition.

Rules are simple.. Create a Christmas orientated project using the XMOS device  get it video'd and up on Youtube/Vimeo and  do it before the

19th of December. Short notice I know but if you have already got a project that can be co-opted for the festive period then you may be up for a winner.


Good luck
