Best Golf Driver to buy in 2014

Ping Rapture 3-Wood

Ever since Phil Mickelson won the Open by switching to a 3-Wood, manufacturers have been clambering over each other to offer handicap-cutting amateurs quality new drivers, with an increased loft. The new Rapture is a far cry from the fairway 3-Woods most are accustomed to and is aimed at those looking for more control from the tee box.
The 13 degree angle means it behaves like a 2-wood than a 3-wood, and you can actually adjust that down 0.5 degrees for a little more distance. However, unlike the classic driver it's more forgiving, offering greater loft, which can help fix that slice. Add a multi-material construction, blending a titanium face with a tungsten sole plate, and you have one incredible weapon in your arsenal.

Thermistors deliver R25 Values from 100kΩ to 210kΩ 2014

Thermistors deliver R25 Values from 100kΩ to 210kΩ


Boasting enhanced stability for temperature sensing and compensation circuits, the SMD NTC thermistors from Vishay are optimized for heat counters, body thermometers, and other medical applications.
The thermistors provide precise measurements over a wide temperature range of -40 °C to +125 °C, and feature non-standard R25 values that are adapted to the resistivity of the thermistors' stable ceramic material and case dimensions. This last feature preserves the devices' original electrical properties throughout their lifetime for increased accuracy. The devices have an ultra-low ± 0.5% maximum variation in their initial electrical resistance values at +25 °C (R25) after 10,000 hours of operation over the full temperature range.
The devices provide one R25 value per case in the 0402, 0603, and 0805 case sizes. The devices' high R25values from 100 kΩ to 210 kΩ reduce self-heating effects, which could result in false temperature readings.

Simpler and greener relative humidity measurements 2014

Simpler and greener relative humidity measurements

Silicon Labs has today announced its second-generation relative humidity and temperature sensing solution, the Si701x/2x sensors. The new sensors simplify RH sensing designs while providing industry-leading power efficiency and ease of use. Target applications include accurate RH sensing for home automation, HVAC, refrigeration, healthcare, remote monitoring, automotive and industrial equipment.
The Si701x/2x family can be used in conjunction with Silicon Labs’ broad portfolio of energy-friendly microcontrollers and wireless ICs to enable best-in-class solutions for measuring, controlling and reporting environmental conditions for a wide range of connected devices linked to the Internet of Things.
Mark Thompson, vice president and general manager of Silicon Labs’ Access, Power and Sensor products, comments: “The new Si701x/2x family represents the state of the art in RH sensing, offering an unmatched combination of ultra-low power, ease of use, small size, precision, reliability and compatibility with standard manufacturing flows. As the only single-chip RH/temperature sensing solutions offered by a broad-based semiconductor supplier, the Si701x/2x sensors can be combined with Silicon Labs’ energy-friendly MCUs, ZigBee and sub-GHz wireless ICs, and other sensor products to address wireless sensing applications for the Internet of Things.”
Combining a standard CMOS mixed-signal IC with a proven technique of measuring humidity using a polymer dielectric film, the Si701x/2x devices provide a superior alternative to legacy RH sensing approaches, which use discrete resistive or capacitive RH sensing elements along with analog circuits for temperature compensation and signal conditioning. Often necessitating a bigger bill of materials and PCB area, these discrete solutions typically have a high risk of contamination and low reliability. Incompatible with surface-mount technology, RH/temperature calibration must be performed during PCB assembly. Attempting to solve these challenges, RH sensor module suppliers have resulted in a higher system cost without improving reliability or risk of contamination.
Contrasting the complex discrete approaches, the monolithic Si701x/2x ICs provide the highest ease of use and reduced manufacturing cost and complexity. Fully calibrated and SMT compatible, the Si701x/2x family achieves highest long-term reliability (thanks to the integrated CMOS design) and also requires negligible BOM cost. Protection against contamination is offered by an optional filter cover, in addition to the factory-installed cover (a Teflon membrane sealed at the top of the IC). This factory-installed cover protects the sensor throughout the device’s entire lifetime, shielding the sensing element from dust, dirt and cleaning agents during operation.
Featuring the lowest power consumption in the integrated RH/temperature sensor market, the Si701x/2x sensors have a 3.3 V power supply voltage and 8-bit resolution, while consuming only 1.9 µW average on-chip power when taking one sample per second. Up to six times lower power than competing RH sensors, this energy efficiency makes the sensors ideally suited for power-sensitive applications and helps extend battery life.
Providing best-in-industry RH sensing precision, the Si701x/2x family is ideal for a majority of RH and temperature sensing applications that have stringent accuracy requirements. Operating over a temperature range from -10°C to +85°C, superior long-term RH accuracy is ensure with the lowest long-term RH drift at <0 .25="" 0="" 80="" a="" accuracy="" also="" and="" from="" humidity="" maintain="" maximum="" of="" operating="" over="" p="" per="" range.="" range="" rh="" sensors="" temperature="" the="" to="" wide="" year.="">

Responsive NTC sensor is suited for complex designs 2014

Responsive NTC sensor is suited for complex designs

Murata has announced that it will soon commence production of a range of surface-mounted NTC (Negative Temperature Coefficient) sensors, packaged on a Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) film. Easily routed inside complex designs and tight spaces, the devices feature an FPC thickness of approximately 100µm.
The sensors’ low heat capacity ensure excellent thermal responsiveness. The sensors measure 50.00x3.17x0.55mm, making them suitable for determining the housing temperature of smartphones and tablets and for use in wearable products which monitor body surface temperature, such as fitness bands and sports performance monitors.
The FTNT55XH103FA1A050 sensor can measure temperatures in the range of -40 to +125°C. At 25°C, it boasts an accuracy of ±0.4°C and resistance of 10kΩ ±1%.
With smartphones and tablets becoming increasingly compact, with more sophisticated functions, the thermal design needs to be monitored in space-constrained designs. Additionally, the IoT trend of wearable products is gaining popularity, and the low-profile film temperature sensors' size and sensitivity suits use in these applications.

Moog Theremini Professional Theremin 2014

Once upon a time, a genius named Leon created the Theremin - what many consider to be the world's first electronic instrument. It was so awesome, he changed his last name to Theremin. The Theremin's awesomeness spanned time and space and enthralled another genius named Bob Moog. This is Moog's Theremin pumped up to the next level. With tears of happiness in our eyes, we present to you the Moog Theremini Professional Theremin.
The Theremini is so friggin' awesome, we don't have room to fully describe it all (check out the Details & Specs tab for a full list), but we're gonna hit the highlights. First, it's got a powerful sound engine derived from Moog’s award winning synthesizer: Animoog. Second, and this is a first for Theremins, the Theremini has assistive pitch quantization, which allows you to adjust the instrument's level of playing difficulty. At the maximum position, the Theremini will play every note in a selected scale perfectly, making it impossible to play a wrong note. As this control is decreased, more expressive control of pitch and vibrato becomes possible. The Theremini is a dream to play, a marvel to compose with, and a work of art to look upon. If you've ever wanted to play the Theremin, the Moog Theremini Professional Theremin is the best place you could ever hope to start. We'd write more, but our Theremini is calling to us and our hands need to dance again!

Nebulophone Mini Arduino Synthesizer Kit 2014


We love the sweet bleeping sound of electronic music. One of our favorite pioneers is Raymond Scott (and if that name doesn't mean anything to you, shame on you and look him up). Apart from his awesome musical output, his inventions reign supreme as some of the coolest things ever created (if only he wouldn't have been so secretive). When we first heard the Nebulophone, it sounded like a bunch of Scott's inventions all crammed into one. Into one easy-to-build, DIY kit, we could love and share with you. So we did.
The Nebulophone is freakin' awesome and really fun to play. It's sort of like a Stylophone on crack - you use a stylus to play a note - but that's about where the similarities end. The Nebulophone has all sorts of fun buttons and dials to alter the waveform; adjust decay, portamento, keyboard mapping, and arpeggiation; and so much more. Plus it's got a light controlled analog low-pass filter (adjustable, naturally) that adds even more fun. Our first song created on the Nebulophone is called, "Ty's Goatee" - what's yours? Get a Nebulophone today, enjoy assembling it tomorrow, and begin rocking out the day after. The Nebulophone - so much bleeping fun.
This is a KIT. Which means that you have to assemble it... which is the way kits typically work. You will need some simple soldering skillz and a screwdriver.
Nebulophone Mini Arduino Synthesizer
  • The Nebulophone is an Arduino based synth with a stylus keyboard that you build yourself.
  • Five waveforms (ramp, triangle, square, pulse, and noise).
  • Adjustable decay.

Zeus Vehicle Cleaning Multi-Tool 2014

After our first snow of the year here at ThinkGeek World Domination HQ, this copywriter's vehicle only seats 3 comfortably, because the backseat also is now home to the shovel, broom, and ice scraper. It's just easier to keep them all back there than to cart them into the house, only to have to cart them back out at the next chance of snow.
So we were pretty excited when we met Zeus. Not the Zeus from Mount Olympus. This other Zeus from Quirky. It's a multitool for vehicle cleaning, sort of like having a Swiss Army Knife dedicated to snowfall. It's a shovel, brush, and ice scraper ALL IN ONE. This makes us (and the person currently wedged into the back seat with the shovel, broom, and ice scraper) very happy.
Made from high-impact plastic, the shovel head flips over to become an oversized ice scraper we can't wait to try the next time it snows. A brush fits neatly into the extendable handle, which is steel where it counts and aluminum where it doesn't to lessen the tool's overall weight. Plus, the grip has reflective ends to help keep you visible while digging out.
Knowing Quirky, we assume v2.0 will be wi-fi enabled and will tell you whether or not your local grocery store is out of milk and toilet paper (spoiler alert: it is).
Product Specifications

  • Zeus is a multi-tool (shovel, brush, and ice scraper) for wintry situations
  • Wide shovel with ergonomic handle for serious snow removal
  • Removable handle doubles as a brush for clearing snow
  • Handle also features reflective ends for additional safety
  • All features break down neatly for compact storage
