Drive time rant. Dave is sick of getting emails asking if the cheap toy DSO nano and FPGA/PIC/AVR oscilloscope kits are worth buying. Guess his response... answers by telepathy please.
A demonstration of Camero's Xaver 400 through-wall radar.
Quite often, technology starts at the high-end (military, expensive lab gear or enterprise) and then with time as volumes rise it becomes affordable and moves into the mass-market. Think of computers (the famous but perhaps apocryphal, Thomas Watson’s “there is a market for perhaps five computers” or Ken Olsen “Why would anyone want a computer at home?”
