Magnetically actuated micro-robots for advanced manipulation applications: SRI is developing new technology to reliably control thousands of micro-robots for smart manufacturing of macro-scale products in compact, integrated systems. Via Hacked Gadgets.
Here’s a how-to on making a magnetic magic wand toy by DIYHacksAndHowTos: This Magic Wand project can be used to get someone young interested in electronics since instead of simply doing something practical this project appears to be magic. The project uses a magnetic reed switch and a magnet embedded into a magic wand to […]
Here is a video review of the AS5040 magnetic rotary encoder IC. The maker of this video connected a scope to the output of the AS5040 IC, and demonstrates how the phase of the signals changes in relation to the angle of the magnetic field. We loved the LEGO-based rig. Demo of an evaluation board […]
Here’s another take on a breakout for the magnetic rotary encoder AS5043 IC: Just wanted to show my take on the AS5043. Double sided PCB by Seed, Voltage regulator onboard, one LED for power on, the other for magnetic range output. This chip measures the surrounding magnetic field and outputs a serial and analog reading […]
