The Maker Revolution celebrates the creation of new devices and the modification of existing ones - the transition from a consumer buying goods to eventually having a major part in their creation. The Maker Revolution places strong emphasis on free (as in speech) sharing of designs, code and ideas. Learning is self-motivated and usually just for the fun of it.

Whilst it might not look so distinctive in photos, the 8Bitdo Zero (not to be confused with the Pi Zero of course) is possibly the most unique of them all, and that’s because it’s actually incredibly tiny. It’s a diminutive 16mm long and 12.8mm high, and it weighs 50g. 50 GRAMS! So anyway, let’s take a look at some of the specs, and then I’ll tell you what I think.

The 1000Z line of oscilloscopes from Rigol is one of our favourites. They have luxuriously large displays, deep memory and about all the features you'd want in a 'scope. Often, a long list of features implies difficult to navigate menus, but the user-experience from these 'scopes is great! The second row of context buttons down the left of the screen give you button-per-item interaction rather than more endless scrolling.

What good is a robot if it can’t interact with the environment around it? Sensors are the backbone of almost every electronics project as they allow your program to make decisions based on external stimuli. We’ve got sensors for all kinds of applications such as light, colour, sound pressure, temperature, and heaps more. However, one of the big stumbling blocks for a lot of people is which sensors are going to work for them, and how to use them in their project.
