I would love to see what you find. I've generally only had a good peek into America and England.

Welcome aboard, Caleb. I enjoyed our walking tour of San Francisco last night and look forward to touring your posts in the future. Do I need a crash helmut? ;-)

@Susan: I guess we'll leave all the dangerous stuff to the professionals, like Caleb.

What??? That's a bit of a slap in the face. I R an Engineer, you know! I was blowing things up when Caleb was a kid blowing bubbles (and sometimes I even meant it to happen :-)

@Susan: My experiance is that Tesla Coils are about as welcome as a Jacob's Ladder when it comes to an environment in which EM noise not desired :-)

Hi Caleb

Great to read your post.. I am from India, based in Bangalore. Now I am going to look for innovations and stuff like that - not the FBs or the Googles but simple things that people ( who mayor may not be engineers) are struggling to come up with to make their working lives simpler, be it in agriculture or textile or leather or whatever.. but somewhere where some electronic stuff could be involved or some which would not have electronics embedded in them.

Am sure there would be some others ( the real-time engineers :) ) who would love to write to you and figure out some solutions for the problems they encounter.

I am not an engineer but I am an ordinary journalist who covers IT beat  in particular  but looks for human interest features in general -- and try to communicate things happening in India which are interesting to the global audience.

Maybe some ideas could help out some people - even if one person is able to add more value to his/her innovation, it would be great, I think

@Caleb: Your comments and emails will be as important as the stories themselves, so please don't hesitate to jump in and let me know what you think.

Ah ha! A cunning ploy -- inviting emails but not giving us an email address (LOL)


"You should call me and we can discuss this further," said Max (but without providing a telephone number :-)

I guess the tesla colis is not a good thing to have at an electronics trade show.

The battery powered ones like the one I had are relatively harmless. You could shock yourself with the arcs all day long without ill effect. Maybe we should do tiny tesla coils! That would wreak havoc on all the other electronics though.

I think we'll be talking a lot more about those things in your garage!
