Suggestions for EEVdiscover Episodes
« on: March 20, 2019, 08:23:53 am »
As mentioned on today's live show, I want to get off my lazy arse and make more EEVdiscover episodes.
I already have a list of some places I want to visit, but if there is something/somewhere you want me to visit then please suggest it. Especially if you have contacts at these places and/or know of people you know will be good on camera explaining stuff.
Obviously it needs to be in Australia, overseas is just out of the question at the moment.
I'm after interesting technology related things that would appeal to a broader audience than regular EEVblog viewers.

Thanks.

HMAS Onslow: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMAS_Onslow

Should not be too taxing, apart from Sidney traffic.

I have attached some photos, including retro computers and Murphy B40s

I do like submarines  ;D
Have been on plenty, including the Onslow

Just tried to get access to a potentially cool place nearby, but was denied for security reasons, they don't permit filming or visits to their control room.
I check their Youtube channel and they have a video showing their control room and a tour by a bunch of engineering students  ::)

I suspect the footage was vetted before release.  The students might have been, too.

Yeah, for sure, this is a stones throw from my lab.

I might be biased but things that cross biology with electronics would be interesting for me, although possibly they are a bit too "researchy" still for a wide audience. For instance things like

  • A tour through a Cochlear factory would be interesting (but unlikely!)
  • A look at a decent Nanofab lab - similar techniques to PCB fab but some very high resolution fabrication techniques using lasers and electron beams. (We have Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication here which you may have seen across the car park from the Synchrotron, but looking at the ANFF website there is a NSW branch too, so there might be something near you)
  • Anybody in Sydney doing 3D bioprinting?

I did some contract work for cochlear. A lot of the really interesting stuff is next gen they haven't released yet. But yeah, still good stuff to talk about there.

Good suggestion, thanks.[/list]

Quite some time ago I posted an article here on the work of an Australian (Sydney) scientist who is using precise timing to decipher nerve impulses, hopefully leading to new prothesis that allow "paralyzed" people to feel and hopefully, walk again. I am interested in the interface of electronic to the human body. How does it work, how does it know what to do. I'd like to know how that resaerch is oming along and how it works. Can regugar people use commodity off the shelp equipment to use neuroal nets in their human computer interfacing?

I want to figure out to what's invoved in using to use this technology.

Get your BIL in again, along with any of the other interviews you have done in the lab.  The two of you together have great synergy.

human computer interfaces.


I would like to see more on these new brain computer interfaces.

I have an invite to film at the Siding Spring observatory Dubbo that should be very interesting.
Because it takes some getting there and back, I thought I'd fly in and base myself in Dubbo for a week and make an EEVdiscover "series" of videos.
So I'm looking for interesting technical places (or companies?) a drivable distance from Dubbo.

On the list so far, apart from the SSO, but I haven't contacted them yet are:
Siding Springs Obversatory.
Australia telescope compact array at Narrabri
MOPRA telescope
Wellington Solar farm
The Dish at Parkes

Suggestions welcome!

I'm into audio since I was a kid. You have at least some amount of tube amp builders in your giant country, I have no idea if any are reasonably close to where you are.

Also, there is a company named Burson who makes well-regarded headphone amplifiers mostly (or completely) based on op-amps. Might be worth taking a tour and would definitely be worth hearing your opinion on their builds.
I have taken apart more gear than many people. But I have put less gear back together than most people. So there is still room for improvement.

Dave, any chance you might start including Odysee links in parallel to the YT ones when you post a new one here?

How were CARBON resistors made in the 1960s?
« Reply #17 on: December 25, 2023, 04:57:58 pm »
I get making the cylinders of carbon, cutting to lengths, inserting leads, etc.

But how did they make Qazillions of em?

Seriously though, how was the process accomplished to avoid all sorts of second operations and handling?  I looked for videos on Internet Archive and such found nothing.

An inquiring mind wants to know.

THANKS for all you have done.
Regards,

Dewey

You could do factory tours of electronics manufacturers in Australia.

Workbench safety? How to ground the bench, safety tips, why 300V scope probes are considered unsafe for working on mains-powered equipment... etc.

Why 1M resistors for ESD straps? Why not 500K or 2M?

Near Sydney facility for radioisotope production and neutron spectroscopy:
ANSTO OPAL in Lucas Heights.
https://www.ansto.gov.au/facilities/opal-multi-purpose-reactor
Dont know how security is or if you could get access.

Hands on test drive of the EV that changes everything? It sounds and acts like a ICE car, the first in the world that tricks a drivers mind into believing they are driving a ICE car. Only possible, as it senses the road 2500 times a second.....and transfers that outside Analogue, into a Digital world.....heck what a car.
