Since the last post I’ve:
* Bought a house
* Increased the size of the hackerspace to 8000 square feet
* Created a company to make ARM motherboards
* Upgraded the ArduPilot board to use an ARM processor
There’s a lot going on! Maybe I should, you know, blog about it or something.

Okay, it’s Monday and I *DO* feel better. This evening I’ll be having fun at Microcontroller Monday at the hackerspace, but for now, I’m still on a homopolar (faraday) motor kick.
This is an example of a homopolar generator. High current! It’s why flywheel homopolar generators are used to store energy from the Grid:

You can, by changing resistance, build a primitive “speed control” for a faraday motor:
