Computer Club Mysore

Forgive the month of silence and subsequent flurry of posts! I’m developing a heightened sense of respect for anyone who has the discipline to update a blog regularly…

Mysore is a city about 140k from Bangalore, meaning its anywhere from two to six hours away from Bangalore depending on highly variable Indian road conditions. It is a relatively small city by Indian standards, meaning the population is only a little over a million and is a popular travel destination with many points of cultural and historical interest.

My friend Vinay, who I met at Computer Club India in Bangalore, recently started the Mysore chapter of Computer Club India and invited me out for a visit. The Mysore chapter consists of a bunch of electrical engineering students who are interested in supplementing their exam- and formula-based education with creative, open source and hands-on projects. Vinay invited me to one of the meetings, which, surprisingly, a bunch of people turned up for, considering exams were occurring the following week.

I shared some of the circuit work I did in South America with the students.

Vinay taught a project he made based around LM324 op amp chips. He built a circuit that lights up LEDs in a row in response to a varying voltage, and if you hook it up to music, the LEDs light up depending on the incoming audio signal.

The meet was on a Sunday, so I got to see the Mysore Palace lit up that night before I returned to Bangalore!

  1. Hi everyone.Truly believe there is a wise-head on young shoulders in the form of VINAY and, many more to come from him.Feel this is just the start–a gestation period out of which colossal break-throughs are going to be brimming to hatch out.All the very best to all of you who have been part of this great carnival,a knowledge-feast.
    This is to what one should confer as ‘THE KAIZEN PRINCIPLE AT ITS VERY BEST’.CHEERS TO CONTINUOUS AND NEVER-ENDING IMPROVEMENT.
