Evening all!

Its been an exciting week so far; Taking part in psychological experiments, being a guest on the Pip Carters show, and working PR with my two colleagues (Mike Skillings and David Fisher)
But probably most exciting of all was Tuesdays experimentation class, myself and Mike came up with something tangible by the end of the day. The new program we are using to program the universities new Stamp chips is based on but not a complete replica of the basic language – So is taking some getting to grips with again.

The new stamp chips are particularly interesting because the chip has integrated many features that would usually require additional peripherals such as the ADC (Analog to Digital Converter).

By the end of the day myself and Michael managed to construct the circuit (after some rather fantastic soldering on my part) and code a basic program that would switch on one of two LED’s depending on the value of the attached potentiometer.

Heres a video of the program in action:

Stay tuned for more wacky experiments!
