    Me hanging with Nate Lanxon and Randall B on TechVi… in 3D!

    Just had a nice little interview with Randall of TechVi and Nate of CNET about 3D TV. My dream 3D kit? Something like the Death Star simulation on board the Rebel ship in Star Wars. My nightmare kit? Watching someone play a 3D video game when there’s only one pair of glasses in the house.

  • Nike+iPod gets repurposed as wireless key fob

    Nike+iPod gets repurposed as wireless key fob


    Got a Nike+iPod kit laying around but not doing much exercising with it? Then you might want to follow the lead of SparkFun's Nate, who took the device and turned it into a decidedly non-exercise minded wireless key fob -- or iFob, as Nate has dubbed it. That, as you might expect, isn't exactly a completely straightforward process, and also involves putting an Arduino Pro Mini into the mix, not to mention a bit of minor surgery to both your car and your car's original key fob. If that doesn't scare you off, however, you can find the complete instructions and plenty of helpful pics at the link below, although you're on your own if you want to build something that actually starts your car.
