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.

Even more Fallout 4 teddy bears

So you might have seen the article which showed you some of the teddy bear easter eggs that Mike had found in Fallout 4. It also had a video attached where I fired 100 teddy bears with a mortar. I made this video response firing 1000 teddy bears and I wanted to share it with you! If the embedded player doesn’t work, you can watch it here! Continue reading Even more Fallout 4 teddy bears

JXD S7800b android gaming tablet test

Today I want to write about a rather unusual device that was around for a pretty long time actually, but that I have never heard of before. I also did never encounter this device in the ‘real life’ server of this game. However, recently someone sent me a link to this device and I found it quite interesting. I’ve seen devices like the S7800b some years ago, but I think the concept of a tablet with built-in hardware controls just did not get very popular. I mean why should it? The buttons seem to distract you anyways when performing typical tablet activities like browsing the web or watching movies. And usually android games tend to be made for touch only devices, so is the JXD S7800b any good at all? Let’s find out!

Lambda expressions in Java

Introduction

They have been around for some years now and yet I’ve heard very little about them. Back then, when Java 8 was new, I took a quick look at what was new. And Java 8 was introducing Lambda expressions, that you could use in your code. But what are these Lambda expressions (sometimes also referred to as Lambda functions)? Should you be afraid of them? Should we all use them? Let’s find out! Continue reading Lambda expressions in Java

Some Fallout 4 easter egg teddy bears

If you’ve played Fallout 4, you might have noticed that it’s packed with funny and sarcastic easter eggs. And there are a lot of them. But one, that I keep running into are teddy bears, that are put into funny poses, where it seems like they are alive. The teddy bear easter eggs were already built into Fallout 3, but however I unfortunately don’t have any screenshot of them. But some of you might remember the huge teddy bear, that could be found in the SatCom Array NN-03d facility. Here are some of the Fallout 4 teddy bear easter eggs, I’ve found.
