Research Prototypes: Testers wanted!

Testers wanted for my research… can you help?

Hey folks – I’m nearly complete a part of research in forgetfulness, looking at smart devices to reduce anxiety when we forget. There is now another study I am working on and would love to have a few testers that don’t mind using a few different devices (message bags etc) and giving regular feedback. It involves using a device for a 2 week period (as much or as little as you like) and then feeding back with a short questionnaire online.

If you are interested please visit the micro site with more information and a short questionnaire to check eligibility.

… I need your opinion!

Hello, I’ve been making things with Arduino for a little while now (mostly a mess and a few small fires!) but I love it so much that I want to help others who are thinking of giving it a try. I’d like to launch a short course on getting started with Arduino in under an hour, so you can see how quick and easy it is to create exciting little projects.

OLED & Arduino Heaven

I had posted some images online of some prototypes that I had been working on, and Marcelo Souza commented about trying an OLED. I had thought about it before but the ones I had looked at (or even ordered to play around with) all were relatively expensive if I wanted to incorporate it – but the display I was using, an LCD, was taking up a lot of space, both in size and in number of ports – so I decided to have a look.
