These itty-bitty scopes are simply fantastic. You just have to see them to understand.
I had spotted these guys at a previous Maker Faire and was hoping to see them again here. I'm not quite sure what is so appealing about them, but I suspect it is their little OLED screens.
Packed in that tiny little package is an oscilloscope, waveform generator, protocol sniffer, and more. The output is displayed on the absolutely beautiful-looking 128x64 resolution OLED screens. The refresh rate on these things is incredible and the contrast is perfect for viewing in any lighting situation. You can find details about different models Gabriel Anzziani has produced on his website.
This year Gabriel was happy to announce that he was going to be launching a Kickstarter soon to integrate all of this into the form of a watch. The Kickstarter is now live and you can see the details here.
He points out that after a while of wearing a basic watch, you start to take it for granted. There may be "smart watches" out there, but as Gabriel points out, they often don't do much that your phone couldn't do. His device, on the other hand, puts a portable measurement device on your wrist. I'm not really sure how often I would need any of the things here while I'm not in my workshop, but you never know! It sure would be handy when troubleshooting my antique vehicle wiring.
