Build your own MP3 Player

Build your own MP3 Player

You can make your own mp3 player – say what? Yes, and it is compact enough to fit in an Altoids gum tin (not available in Australia but as I see in the picture, it is really small). If you have time, build one and impress your friend. If not, it is still quite an amusement to read all those details:

… And so it came to pass, with the advent of Limor’s Minty MP3 and miniaturization being what it was, that the masses yearned for an MP3 player of more slender dimensions. An iPod shuffle? Nay, they cried. No pazzazz. How about an EMP-Z Coin-Sized MP3 player? A What?

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
