Jameco Customer Makes Electronics Sparkle at the Movies
Imagine the stress of having to dress a movie set in 1980s technology props. You would need everything from a huge cell phone brick to a green screen Apple 2e. Where would you turn? As proof that there is a company for every need, Jameco's customer Rich Rappaport and his Atlanta - based business. RJR Electronics & Props supplies a wide range of classic (don't call it old) technology that brings back fond memories for most of us.
See how Rappaport's collection of odd gadgetry led to the big screen.
I just got back from a once in a lifetime experience. My mother decided to spend my inheritance and take the whole family on safari to Africa. For eight days we slept in tents, awoke at dawn and bounced through the dirt roads of Kenya in search of wildlife.

Club Brief: Fishing Bite Detector | By rverm
With the fishing detector you can turn a bite on your fishing line into sound. This device uses the line tension to create a voltage spike. A dip in movement from the average value will emit an audible sound.
The Glasses Finder | By Daniel555
This project uses a powerful IR LED and an IR Receiver. Two small circuit boards attach to the glasses and to a wrist band. When you click a button on the wrist band, a buzzer sounds on the glasses' circuit board.
