Talking Resistor Calculator

Jeff Ledger over at Gadget Gangster put together a great tutorial on how to make a resistor calculator that speaks the resistor value to you.

Even at 40, I still think of myself as a young guy, but my eyes… not so much anymore. From my electronic microscope to my Aladdin Rainbow reading machine, I’ve taken every step to make sure that vision isn’t an issue, but sometimes reading the bands on a simple resistor is still a big pain. Is that an orange stripe or a red one?

Talking Resistor Calculator speaks to tell you what the value of your resistors.

The Quick Proto kit adds video and audio to your Propeller Platform and includes a prototyping area. It can stack on top of the Propeller Platform, or underneath, and it uses the same pinouts as Parallax’s Demoboard.
