PCB production/etching tutorial

Introduction

There are a lot of tutorials around that show you, how to etch your own PCBs, but either they use professional tools, that might cost a lot, or they do not give you a complete list of materials you will need. This really bothers me, so I want to show you how to produce your own PCBs at home, so you can make your DIY projects more professional and cut costs drastically when it comes to create a PCB.

Simple collision avoidance AI in Unity3D

I’m currently working on a small 3D arcade game inspired by classical top down races in Unity3D. The game will feature enemy opponents, which means that they have to have at least some kind of AI. This AI consists of simple collision avoidance algorithm, so that the enemies don’t crash into walls constantly, and a very simple path following algorithm so that the opponents can find their way around the racetrack. I’ve built a quick prototype with simple boxes and a path. Continue reading Simple collision avoidance AI in Unity3D

Fallout 4 Wasteland Workshop Trophy Guide

Der neueste DLC hat zwar nur drei Trophäen, allerdings sind die Beschreibungen zu diesen Trophäen (zumindest auf deutsch) unpassend gewählt und ein wenig irreführend.
