Exposed: HiTechnic Magnetic Compass

featured-htcompass

The HiTechnic Compass held a lot more internal chips and doodads than I had originally expected, to be very honest.  When one of my readers, Noah, suggested I take it apart and show the World its guts, I had my reservations.  I was pleasantly surprised, as I hope you will be. Without further ado, I present to you, the HiTechnic ... Read More »

Exposed! Full Frontal of HiTechnic PIR Sensor!

featured-hitechnic-pir

It’s been a while since I last did an “exposed” article, where I take apart a sensor and take intimate pictures of its insides.  The HiTechnic Passive Infra Red (PIR) is a great one though.  It was also one of the most tricky ones to photograph and put back together.  To read more about what this sensor can do, check ...

This one was a request by one my readers and what a great suggestion! Taking this sensor apart proved a little bit of a challenge.  It wasn’t as eager to give ups secrets as readily as some of the other ones I’ve opened up in the past.  I also didn’t have a replacement cap for this, so I had to ...

What’s this?  Two Exposed posts in two days?  What is this madness? To be honest I’ve been wanting to cut HiTechnic’s new Barometric Sensor open since I got it a while back.  I held off while it wasn’t on sale yet since I couldn’t really write about it anyway.  However, now that it’s out there in the wild and I ...

Exposed: HiTechnic Tetrix Controllers

This Exposed episode is brought to you by Team R.A.B.B.I.  My first thought when opening the envelope from them was “Oh wow, thanks!”  My second thought was “I wonder what these look like on the inside.”  It must’ve taken a lot of restraint but I managed to not open them until at least an hour later.  They did not disappoint.  ...

Exposed: HiTechnic Acceleration/Tilt Sensor

I’ve received a fresh batch of sensor covers in the mail so I can once again show you the gory details of various NXT sensor innards. This time I took a knife to the HiTechnic Acceleration Sensor. I’ve been curious about this one for a little while now. From the pictures below it’s quite easy to see which one of ... Read More »
