Great for impatient builders!Out of stock SKU: 11075 Categories: Books, Miscellaneous Tag: allAccounts Description More Info Reviews (0) Description Simon Monk is an accomplished author of several books we personally like. This volume “Hacking Electronics – An illustrated DIY guide for makers and hobbyists” is well titled. It is about hacking electronics, which is the “how do I…” aspect rather than the “why does it…” aspect of electronics It is well illustrated. Lots of color images and diagrams. And we’re picky – these are pretty nice quality (not grainy or …weird) full color images. Nice on the eyes, and they really help the content of the book. It does cover hacks. Some elemental, some basic, and most of them of genuine usefulness. Very little cruft here that won’t be of some interest to a new hacker. As with most book reviews we do, here’s a chapter list, with some of the notables in each we thought were particularly cool: Contents Introduction Chapter 1: Getting Started Chapter 2: Theory and Practice (Nice theory of electricity) Chapter 3: Basic Hacks (Hacking a Push Light into a light sensor) Chapter 4: LED Guides (How to Stop an LED from Burning Out – handy!) (How to use a stripboard for prototyping) (Hacking a slot-car racer to add LED headlights) Chapter 5: Batteries and Power Chapter 6: Hacking Arduino (A chicken. There’s a picture of a chicken. How cool is that) (Charlieplexing LOTS of LEDs) Chapter 7: Hacking with Modules Chapter 8: Hacking Sensors Chapter 9: Audio Hacks (Pinouts for various audio plugs. NICE) Chapter 10: Mending and Breaking Electronics Chapter 11: Tools Appendix: Parts More Info Weight 0.508 kg Dimensions 23 × 19 × 1.3 cm Reviews There are no reviews yet.Only logged in customers who have purchased this product may leave a review.
