There’s no way I can compete
with the likes of the Apple Watch or
a FitBit, but I don’t need to. I just
need the tools and some of the
know-how from the world of watches
to spice up my experimentation in
electronics. This is just one example.
Several years ago, I made a
similar foray into digital photography.
I picked up a few techniques and
tools that have improved my life
working with optical sensors.
In summary, the electronics
portal leads to many potential
adventures. Don’t feel you need to
stick with pure electronics.
Get out of your comfort zone
and explore some of the many
related technologies. You’ll be glad
you did. NV
