[Bill] is back with another fantastic video explaining a piece of intriguing hardware. This time, he’s explaining how a CCD works. For many of us, these things are part of our daily life, but aside from the fact that they capture an image, we don’t put much thought into them. [Bill] breaks things down in a way that we really enjoy. Fast paced and detailed, yet simple enough for even non-engineers to follow. This time, however, he’s also promoting his companion book which includes tons more information, not only on the construction and function of these ideas, but the underlying scientific principles.
The book, called Eight Amazing Engineering Stories, covers the following items:
- Digital camera imagers
- tiny accelerometers
- atomic clocks
- enriched uranium
- microwave ovens
- anodized metals
We’re excited about the book and it looks like they’ve worked really hard to deliver a quality product. Great job guys.
