This Lego meter uses a microcontroller inside the case to check resistors and batteries. A PC running a .NET application displays the value and uses text to speech to say the number aloud. [Via Dangerous Prototypes]

    When I first saw the title of this post, my first thought was that someone had stuffed a meter into the guts of one of those giant minifig flashlights.

    My second thought was regretting that I hadn’t thought of it first.

    WONDERFUL Post.thanks for share..more wait .. …There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives. acompanhantes| putas loiras
