Physical computing: HowTo control LEDs, electric motors or servos through GPIOs

In this video I would like to explain how to amplify digital signals, so that you can control homebuilt peripherals by computers or microcontrollers. Furthermore simple input functionalities are treated. The control units I am using are an Arduino Uno microcontroller and a Raspberry Pi single board computer. Both computing machines have digital input/output pins[…]

Explained: Quantum Computing

Explained: Quantum Computing

A quantum computer is a hypothetical machine that would exploit the principles of quantum mechanics that govern the subatomic world, in order to solve certain problems much faster than we know how to solve them with any computer today. Quantum mechanics has been the basic framework for almost all of physics for nearly a century.[…]
