The world’s first Segway and bicycle electronic tour guide, soon in Australia

Two different versions of the button solution. In my opinion, the first one (with white buttons) is better, because it’s easier to touch the convex elements. And the location of each will be intuitively remembered after the first ride.

Zen

The range of our tiny devices has been extended with one more minimalistic version, which, perhaps, expresses the original idea of personal GPS audio companion in its most precise embodiment. That’s for sure: just switch it on… and go for a walk. Is that simple? I am sure that the seniors would highly appreciate this version of Electronic Tour Guide.

Fake voltage regulators

I’ve heard before about the fake ICs but never seen it in real life. Here is a first of them was captured accidentally in our new butch. The real magic that not all of them are bad. I was found one during the routine test, which is really noisy. But after that the more detailed analysis showed that there is just about 10% of them are problematic. Though, I didn’t check the voltage drop yet and thinking it would be better to resolder all of them for originals, to make sure that everything will be fine during regular operation.

Fake voltage regulators
Real one on the right. Be careful!
