Photographer Rick Sammon latest book has no pictures?: Photo Therapy Motivation & Wisdom
Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.  I’m Fred Fishkin.  Photographer and author Rick Sammon is out with his 40th book about photography….and this time…he did it without including images at all. That said…I found Photo Therapy Motivation and Wisdom to be his best work yet.  Rather than talk about the setttings on your camera…here Rick is focused on the settings in ourselves… “So with our pictures we can create, and we are creating, our own reality simply by choosing what we want to photograph.  I also talk about how learning is health.  That’s a Buddhist expression.” And with this book…you’ll learn how to keep going with seeming simple yet very useful tips on how to think about taking photos and a whole lot more.  You can find Rick Sammon’s Photo Therapy.. Motivation and Wisdom on Amazon. You can find us at Techstination.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.

Hands on with the Piper Computer Kit for kids
Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.  I’m Fred Fishkin.  Recently had the chance to watch an excited nine year old build his own computer.  It was the latest kit from Piper…and while a little family help was needed the diagrams and packaging made the whole thing relatively easy.  Piper Computer uses a Raspberry Pi computer board…includes a 9 inch screen and it all fits together in an attractive…un-computer looking wooden case.    And from there…the adventure continues.  CEO David Lndgren… “When they are done and they press the on button, they’re launched into a world of 3D animated characters roaming through the Raspberry Pi edition of Minecraft.” And there is a lot more for kids to learn with coding as well.  It is one of the best truly STEM products on the market.  The Piper Computer Kit sells for about three hundred dollars.

Love coffee? Programmable Coffee System from Wolf Gourmet
Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.  I’m Fred Fishkin.  Who doesn’t need a better cup of coffee?  The folks at Wolf Gourmet have developed a programmable coffee system designed to amaze.  The company’s Mary Beth Brault.. “We have this unique cycle called the Acu-Brew mode  and what you do is you simply set the number of cups that you typically drink any day…and then the strength…and then this LCD screen kind of keeps track of the type of coffee and the strength of the coffee that you want.  And then all you have to do is simply pour your grounds in and it weighs the amount of grounds that you have.  This indicator right here is weighing how much grounds I’m pouring in.” To brew a perfect cup…and save the settings for tomorrow.  The down side is the Wolf Gourmet Coffee System will set you back about five hundred dollars.
