Hacking Every Day

I don't know how many people out there enjoy disassembling things, finding out how they work, and reassembling them. I know I enjoy this and that is why I check out Hackaday.com on a daily basis. They have thousands of posts on cool mods, inventions, and crazy creations. I hope to one day be a mad scientist playing with Tesla coils, plasma speakers, and Jacob's ladders. They have several posts on the basics on soldering and leds. They also recommend a book called "There are No Electrons: Electronics for Earthlings" which I could not tell if they were serious or not, but I bought it on amazon and read it. The book is good at explaining the basics of electronics with out a lot of jargon. So check out a copy if you are interested in learning about electronics because every day our world community's technology dependance evolves and the technology we use evolve. What do ya'll think about electronics, projects, and repairs? Do ya'll do this sort of thing or is it for the engineering nerds?

  5. As a kid i'd take EVERYTHING apart. Our microwave broke one time, and my parents were about to throw it out. Instead i 'recycled' it and took it apart. :b I/ll have to check the book out!

  6. I am more of a mechanically minded person, but I dabble in electronics from time to time, usually with fairly mixed results!

  7. @ internet Catch of the day I enjoy mechanics too. I had a rough time deciding between electric or mechanical engineering, but I decided electrical.
    @jackson.k I have about 4 boxes of parts from old PCs, coffee makers, and other household items. It makes my room look junky lol.
