Special guest Star Simpson @starsandrobots ASK AN ENGINEER – 8PM ET 2/17/2016 (video). What is “Ask an engineer”? From the electronics enthusiast to the professional community – “Ask an Engineer” has a little bit of everything for everyone. If you’re a beginner, or a seasoned engineer – stop in and see what we’re up to! We have demos of projects and products we’re working on, we answer your engineering and electronics questions and we have a trivia question + give away each week.
I’m the godfather of drone delivery. Tweets about robots, drones, sailplanes. hardware, manufacturing, philosophy.
Star Simpson is bringing to life Forrest M. Mims’ original hand-drawn circuits projects, by creating an exquisitely designed series of finely crafted, and highly detailed boards — the Circuit Classics.
Each circuit depicts an original, traced and hand-drawn schematic created by Forrest Mims for his iconic books “Getting Started in Electronics”, and the “Engineers’ Notebook” series. Every board includes a description of how it works, in Mims’ handwriting, on the reverse side.
Alongside the schematic is the circuit itself. Paired with the components you need to build up timeless examples such as the Dual-LED Flasher, the Stepped Tone Generator, and the Bargraph Voltage Indicator, each board is carefully designed for easy assembly recreating the wonder of learning how electronics work— whether it’s your first soldering project or your fifty-thousandth.
