Favorite websites?
« on: May 13, 2013, 11:10:21 am »
Other than these forums and hackaday.com, where does everybody like to go for news about new and interesting electronics projects? Preferably, sites that are updated frequently...

I'm part of the E14 Top Members group which get a heads up slightly before the rest.
Having said that the news isn't exactly first.

dangerousprototypes.com - though it hasn't been as interesting or engaging lately - it is still one of the better ones in my opinion - less fluff then most

I like the Adafruit blog. Hack-a-day is a foul place. Stay away from the comments on that one!


I don't really pay much attention to this stuff though - too busy making stuff!!

Bluebie: Have to admit, I don't think I've paid much attention to the comments on Hack-a-day. What's happened there that was bad? And yes, I've been looking at the Adafruit site. Thanks for reminding me.

digistump: I think I had seen the Dangerous Prototypes site before, but had forgotten to bookmark it. Thanks for mentioning that one.

Some other sites I've found for project ideas (some updated more frequently than others):

http://designspark.com/
http://blog.makezine.com/
http://diy.viktak.com/
http://hackedgadgets.com/

Mostly sites I browse when bored or for learning and references, but I think you could find ideas there :

Analog Design Ideas http://www.edn.com/design/analog/1/design-ideas
EEV blog http://www.eevblog.com/
Lessons In Electric Circuits http://openbookproject.net/electricCircuits/
A blog from a local hackerspace member (sorry in french) http://www.rhaaa.fr/
Pilom electronics "weekend hobby projects" http://www.pilom.com
Embedded programming topics http://www.embeddedrelated.com
Lots of electronics project ideas http://fritzing.org/projects/
Computer (but can apply to microcontrollers ) architecture http://www.nand2tetris.org/

For "physical links" (printed books) I recommend :
Guided learning : http://shop.oreilly.com/product/9780596153755.do
Reference : http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920026105.do - looking forward to reading the 2nd and 3rd volumes too.

For all 3D printing stuff, http://thingiverse.com (things !) and http://forums.reprap.org (machines !)
