<p><a href=BlinkM MaxM, is BlinkMs bigger, crazy sibling. It’s an intensely-bright smart LED that comes as a package of two components, a control module (MaxM Master) and a daughter board with three ultrabright LEDs (MaxM Blaster).

Invisible Accent Light with BlinkM MaxM & FreeM

Invisible Accent Light with BlinkM MaxM & FreeM

“Sometimes you just want a little extra light in a room. With RGB LED tape, you can put light anywhere. But controlling its brightness and making it the color you want is a bit harder. A BlinkM MaxM can easily control LED tape, either as a stand-alone device, with an Arduino, or your computer via a LinkM.”

Digital oscilloscope

Build a simple Inexpensive digital oscilloscope. Single channel, about 100 MSPS. RS-232 based.

Hands-on - A digital oscilloscope

Homebrew Computer – MyCPU

Look no CPU! – It got MyCPU which is made of discrete logic gates as the Bricks.

Homebrew Computer – MyCPU

“The MyCPU is a “Central Processing Unit” that is completely built with discrete logic gates. Over the years the project has grown, and now the MyCPU is the brain of a real Personal Computer. The computer has the following capabilities and features”

This can also be roasted on a single FPGA Board.

Alternative Energy Projects – MTM Scientific

Here are some neat projects for your study, free learning material. Solar Oven Cooker, Anemometer Circuit, Simple Data Logger.

Hand Cranked DC Generator Plans

The MTM Scientific, Inc. Experimenter Corner

Highlights are How to Measure the Power Output of Solar Panels and the Time Controlled Relay Switching Kit.

They also sell a Battery Amp Hour Meter and a Crystal Diode set which contains 1N34A diodes, 1N60 and D9B for learning electronics. They are Germanium Diodes.

An interesting Energy solution is the Hand Cranked DC Generator Plans. It describes how to build a hand operated electric power generator using a standard DC gearhead motor.

Solar Tracker Circuit Kits helps you servo position your Solar Cell Array, you can build a device which will automatically follow the sun across the sky.
