Knife Skills Illustrated: A User's Manual

Image
I have used this fantastic reference book for about three months and it has greatly improved my time in the kitchen. Cooking consists mainly of three basic skills: heating things, putting things together (mixing) and taking things apart (cutting). This book is focused exclusively on the last set of skills.

Why are good knife skills so important? They allow you to cut food without hurting yourself. Also, as the author explains, "you are able to cut it into evenly sized pieces that will all cook at the same rate." In many cases, you can reduce waste by using a well-thought out cutting technique. In practice, the book has also improved my efficiency in the kitchen, since I can now dice an onion in about a dozen or so deliberate strokes of the knife, rather than chopping haphazardly until I get it into roughly the shape I want it in. There are also aesthetic advantages--good presentation is easier to achieve with consistently cut pieces of food. Finally, as the author notes: &quo…

How-To: Get Started with the BeagleBone

Image
I’ve had my eye on embedded Linux platforms for quite a while now, but wasn’t sure how to get started. When I saw that our own Maker Shed started carrying the BeagleBone I put in a call to get a trial unit. The system reference manual that comes with the board is a bit daunting, and isn’t meant as a getting started guide (despite the fact that there’s plenty of useful reference information in there). After a bit of researching online, I started to get the grasp of using Linux’s virtual file system, sysfs, to read and control the GPIO pins on the BeagleBone. In parallel, I taught myself just enough Python to script these operations. With a basic digitalRead and digitalWrite functions, I had many of the tools I needed to do some cool projects with the board.
However, I spent a lot of time going back and forth between my board, the system reference manual, and my script as I worked towards getting blinking LEDs and buttons. Translating between the physical pin on the header to the pin I’d…

Stage Combat Training Shirt w/Lilypad Arduino

Image
Instructables user grossmr1 teaches stage combat, and was looking for a more efficient way to communicate sword target points to her students than language or pointing. The garment she designed features LEDs at various target points, and conductive pads on the fingers and thumb of one gauntlet. She can select which of the various target points is lit by touching her thumb to the corresponding finger.
