Have you ever wanted to shoot lightning bolts out of your hands like the Sith do in Star Wars? Have you ever wanted to be immune to lightning strikes?

Radar tracking systems have been around for about 80 years now. Typically, when someone mentions radar it evokes images of giant antennas used to track clouds or planes miles and miles away. Close range radar that works through walls seems to be something exclusive to the realm of science fiction. Perhaps the most iconic example of this is the motion tracker from the 1986 movie Aliens. Its ominous pulsing and shrieking tracking tone made it a fantastic plot device for building tension in the movie.
Recently, a user of our products posted a tutorial about using a chipKIT uC32 to remotely control an FM Radio. We always love to see our users creating cool projects and try to give space here not only to projects created by us at Digilent but also by you the user. This project does require the use of multiple components and could be a bit overwhelming to a beginner, but we encourage you to try it out if you so choose!
It is exciting to see all your posts and projects using Digilent products. This project posted by a Digilent user shows a step-by-step guide to using the Basic I/O Shield on the Blackberry 10 for remote temperature viewing and listening. There is also an earlier post in our blog about the I/O Shield and how cool it is. Check it out here!
