Remember that Camera Light project I did back when? (And the actual prototyping, and the concept?) Yeah, I barely do, either. It was a while back. (We've had everything from family emergencies, to illness, to pesky day jobs keeping us hopping around here, with no free time. Yikes!) I did hear from a couple of people that the light had a serious problem, in that there was absolutely no need for a microcontroller.
Now here's a simple, short review of a pretty simple tool: the iFixit Jimmy.
Ah, the head magnifier. Most geeky of headware short of LED-enhanced steampunk iris goggles. (Note to self: get/make LED-enhanced steampunk iris goggles!!!) This is not going to win you a fashion award. On the other hand, it's great at things like reducing eye-strain, and reducing errors from misreading incredibly tiny writing on silk-screened PCBs or chips.
Well, I really can't say enough about storage. It's pretty much essential to anybody, anytime. But for DIYers and Makers, it becomes even more important. And the more restricted your space is, the more important it gets!
I decided to start with something easy instead of trying to shoot a project from beginning to end, especially with the limited space and time that I "enjoy" at the moment. So I'll be beginning with some reviews of the tools and products that I use when I'm working,
Well, OK, not the regular tools like screwdrivers, soldering irons, or wire cutters. I'm talking about things like breadboard-friendly alligator clips, etc.
