Anyone else interested in electronics around these parts? I have some experience with making my own (simple-ish) circuits and fiddling with microcontrollers, and I've found it to be a ton of fun. I should get around to getting a bunch of assorted electronics junk so I can start tinkering with stuff at home as well, I've got plans for a couple of gadgets of varying usefulness.

its one of those hobbies i feel like i could get into if i had an income that allowed for it. Just seems expensive to get into.

I really love seeing other people's work with it, though.

advanced technology has never been cheaper

It is still too expensive.

The components themselves might not cost much, but you'll still need to pour a fair bit of change into tools and equipment unless there's some kind of makerspace nearby that you can use.

Hey OP! I'm studying electronics at my local college. It's pretty fun, and I'm finally getting into the math of the stuff, after doing it hobby style for a number of years.
Getting a bunch of junk is probably fun, but I would recommend getting stuff for a project rather than just random parts. Do you have ideas for projects?

I'm actually doing a degree in EE right now and landed a course with lots of hands-on work after a few years of not really doing anything with electronics, which inspired me to make the thread in the first place. I agree on random component orders being pretty pointless, I just don't have anything at home right now and I need to stock up on some basic things.

As for projects, I'm personally planning on making a USB handbrake with an expansion header for possible additional DIY controllers in the future. The main obstacle is trying to figure out the mechanical side of things, making it sturdy enough to withstand use while keeping costs low is always a challenge, the electronics are going to be the easy part.

I'm also getting an EE degree. I would play with hobby stuff more if I had the time/money… but I might restart a project to build an audio mixer that I was working on.
I found that the first couple of years did little to make me very interested in starting my own projects. Now that I'm deep in the higher level courses I'm starting to get some ideas. But I have fuck all time to make extra cash to support those ideas…. so I just screw around with LTSpice.


Do any of you sushi rolls have experience with modding laptops/more sensitive electronics?

I've liked taking things apart and modifying them since I was a child. Repairing electronics is also a lot of fun and keeping stuff from ending up in a landfill is a definite plus.

Minored in EE at university, but haven't really done much with what I learned there. Every time I come up with a cool gadget or another project someone already seems to be offering it for super cheap on ebay.
