017 - Matou Makes
In this episode of The Simple Electronics Podcast we have another maker who is making projects 10x better than his sub count - Matou! We chat about all sorts of things including a deep dive into his last two massive projects - the cable cam (sky cam) and the 3d printer that physically plays chess against you! The cable cam is still a work in progress but the concept actually works! The little camera happily glides along over the workbench carrying around a 360 camera, and the 3d printer happily tosses its enemy chess pieces off the chessboard and freaks out when it loses! I hope you will all go and subscribe to Matou's channel! Find him here: https://www.youtube.com/matoumakes https://www.patreon.com/matoumakes https://matoumakes.net/ https://twitter.com/matoumakes

005 - Dad's RC Workbench
In this episode of The Simple Electronics Podcast, I have a special guest, Stephen from, RCtinkerer and Dad's RC Workbench! He is a great overall guy who tinkers with his RC crawling cars and enjoys the outdoors in the form of hunting and fishing. We go over a few things, like his integration of a Arduino-compatible circular board into his rock crawling hobby to add functionality - in this case, a sensor to show if the tilt of the RC model when it becomes excessive, and displays it on a LED light car integrated into the bumper. Stephen is a self-admitted beginner but the projects he have attempted and completed successfully are impressive even for a pro!   You can and should subscribe to his YouTube channel here:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC05HstbMsYb9DKTRHNjf1UQ and on Instagram here:  https://www.instagram.com/dadsrcworkbench/
