Wemos Lolin = ESP32 + OLED on one board

For the long series of articles documenting My Journey into the Cloud I used two small evaluation boards, equipped with an ESP32 32-bit controller, an antenna and a micro USB socket (the latter also serves for power supply input and provides a path for uploading programs). For newcomers, the controller can be programmed using the intuitive Arduino IDE, because the board manufacturer Espressif has provided a ...

MINATURE OPTICAL GYROSCOPE IS SMALLER THAN A GRAIN OF RICE

Gyroscopes are present in virtually any modern electronic gadget. They reused in a host of techs, like cell phones, vehicles, drones and wearables. The gyroscopes used presently in our phones will most likely be MEMS-based. Caltech has gone some extra miles, by successfully developing a new type of gyroscope that is 500 times smaller and 30 times more sensitive than the MEMS version. This research was publi ...
