My method is different. I do not rush into actual work. When I get a new idea, I start at once building it up in my imagination, and make improvements and operate the device in my mind. When I have gone so far as to embody everything in my invention, every possible improvement I can think of, and when I see no fault anywhere, I put into concrete form the final product of my brain.”
While looking around at some geeky tech news, I ran across this announcement on TechCrunch from Autodesk.
Autodesk Introduces 123D Circuits.
123D Circuits is a free online app that allows for the creation and testing of virtual electronic circuits? Premium accounts are also available.
This really interests me! As a Mechanical Engineer, most of my experience with electricity comes from the "blue spark" and
the tingly feeling that comes afterward. Sot he ability to learn in a virtual environment (away from real electricity) is really appealing!
Have I checked it out yet? No. I haven't had an opportunity, but I think I will be looking at this in the future. It sounds intriguing indeed!
