Android on X86: We have Google's Power

We were overjoyed to hear that Intel x86 can now run Android. That would mean the Host and Targets can some day have the same platform for development. This is Great news!!
Here is the link to the Project page:
http://www.android-x86.org/
or
http://code.google.com/p/android-x86/

Here are the Official Intel Website giving the Instructions to installing Android on x86:

Here is the Video of Android Running on Intel N450 based Systems:

Let us know if you get some of them..

Small is IN:Single molecule is tiniest electric motor ever

There has been a remarkable advancement in performing Molecular arrangements which pave way for useful NanoElectronics in the Future. Here is what we came across recently:

The smallest motor ever made and that's why its contesting in the Guinness World Records.
Molecules have previously converted energy from light and chemical reactions into directed motion like rolling or flapping. Electricity has also set an oxygen molecule spinning randomly. But controlled, electrically-driven motion – necessary for a device to be classed as a motor – had not yet been observed in a single molecule.
To address this, E. Charles Sykes at Tufts University in Boston and colleagues turned to asymmetric butyl methyl sulphide, a sulphur atom with a chain of four carbons on one side and a lone carbon atom on the other. They anchored the molecule to a copper surface via the sulphur atom, producing a lopsided, horizontal "propeller" that is free to rotate about the vertical copper-sulphur bond

Audioino: Arduino programmable via sound card



Here’s a unique way to program an Arduino chip: using your computer’s sound card! Chris from the hobby-roboter forum provides the details on this amazing hack in his forum post.The process simply requires the Atmega168 to be programmed with Chris’ special audio bootloader. The whole project requires only the addition of three resistors, two caps, an LED, audio jack and reset switch. Thereafter programs are developed in the Arduino IDE, then the hex is uploaded to the Audioino via Chris’ Java program (contained in the source code zipped file.)This is a really cool hack, reminding some of us how we loaded programs into the CPU memory using cassette recorders back in the day.

New PCB's from Seeedstudio's Fusion Service

We were trying out new sources to get some PCB's from. SeeedStudio provides an innovative and cost effective PCB making service called the Fusion Service. We have now evaluated this service for our MSP430 boards. The quality of PCB was really good for the price.

There are several size options also available(5cm x 5cm & 10cm x 10cm are our most used.
For Bharteya(Indian) Comparison here are the General prices that we have seen:
a. 5cm x 5cm PCB Double Sided
        Local Vendors: INR1050    (3-5 Quantity & Only One Side Silkscreen)
       SeeedStudio:     INR667.2   (Including Shipping , 10QuantityBoth Sides Silkscreen)
b. 10cm x 10cm PCB Double Sided
        Local Vendors: INR1520     (3 Qunatity & Only One Side Silkscreen)
        SeeedStudio:    INR1334.4  (10 Quantity, Including Shipping & Both Side Silkscreen)

In all we are very Happy with the Service & PCB from SeeedStudio and we thank them for this wonderful quality service

We are going for another round of PCBs and hoping that we get them soon.
