  1. This is awesome! But how were you able to get all the equipment? Seems it would cost a lot.

  2. hi chris, most of the equipment isn’t that expensive and for the things that are (laser cutter) we paid them off fully as we bought them with projects, kits and work.

  3. OMG Limor is so hot and smart I love this vid.

  4. I was just curious about the pong clock around the 8 second mark of the video. Was that done with an Arduino and a ks0108 display?

    Thanks

  5. It’s not a pong clock, its a “retro table tennis” clock. I was thoroughly chastised at the engineer’s chat for using a term trademarked by Atari :)

  6. andrew, yup we have a future ‘retro arcade style table tennis desktop clock’ kit with a ks0108 display. there isn’t an ‘arduino’ proper but uses the same chip.

  7. Great interview! Keep the great kits coming!
    What model o-scope is that on your bench?

  8. The scope is a TDS2014B. its a bit overkill, most people would be very happy with just the TDS1012

  9. I am considering to buy an oscilloscope. I know that faster oscilloscopes means more money. What do you think is a good compromise for the average hobbyist? I guess it depends on what I want to do (working with NTSC or just some audio). What is your take on DSO vs. the good old analog?
