Nixie Thermostat - A heating and cooling thermostat employing technologies spanning fourty years from the unique Nixie tube display, circa 1960's, to a PIC 18F microcontroller, circa 2006.
A High-Powered Power Backup Inverter - The working prototype of the 2 KVA inverter is complete. Fed from an array of lead-acid cells totalling 600 Ah (at 12 Volts), it easily drives real-world loads such as single-phase motors. The inverter has been tested and found to operate at an efficiency of between 71% and 82% driving a variety of both inductive and resistive loads

Physical Computing with Linux
"The AWC GP3 board gives your PC an easy way to read digital and analog quantities. It also allows your PC to send digital and analog signals to control the outside world."
Gambas on Linux is a VB like Software.
The GP3 makes physical computing simple and inexpensive. Gambas is an excellent rapid development tool with many modern features (object oriented features, component architecture, and built-in debugging). Together, you can easily and rapidly build embedded Linux applications.
The GP-3 is a low-cost very versatile interface that connects your PC to the outside analog and digital world. You can use this board in two different ways. First, you can connect it to your PC via an RS232 port or a USB port and use the programming language of your choice to sense and control the real world.

Interesting Educational or Learning Computer and Embedded Projects by Bill O'Donnell
Friday, July 11, 2008
"The mission here is to help hobbyist get started with microcontrollers. The primary focus is ARM7 based microcontrollers which can be a big step for persons new to embedded development."
The chip is very easy to work with and provides 12 or 16 I/O pins with various built in functions like variable flash rate, event counters, variable sink current and more. They provide lots of documentation and a DLL to make interfacing easy."

A collection of information on a variety of topics. Finished projects, Some ideas, Repair tips.by San Bergmans, Oisterwijk, The Netherlands.
A pair of dice is the first small example application I present here. The interface is nothing more than 2 sets of 7 LED's, arranged in the form of two dice. One push button per die completes the interface circuit
