“Newspaper, by design, is a very absorbent product, because it has to absorb ink. But that also means it is equipped to absorb all sorts of moisture, including moisture and the resulting odors found in shoes and vegetable drawers," says Chris Morrissey, vice president of marketing for Sun Chemical, in Northlake, Illinois, the world’s largest printing-ink manufacturer. Use Newspaper to: 1. Deodorize food containers.
Hello, and welcome to another exciting edition of "More New Products"! It's been a couple weeks since we've announced new products, so we have a few to talk about. As you've probably noticed, we do a lot with LEDs. Here we have the Tri-Color LED Breakout . It uses our 10mm super 'my eyes are burning' bright LEDs with a transistor on each. Connect each LED to a pin on your microcontroller and you have a simple controllable RGB light source.

Eagle is a great cross-platform, free-for-non-commercial-use tool for many of us designing own own circuit boards. But it has a pretty glaring omission: the ability to import vector artwork to use as board outlines, logos, etc. You can import bitmaps via the finicky “import_bmp.ulp” ULP add-on, but bitmaps can’t work for board outlines. So we struggle with Eagle’s rudimentary vector drawing tools or have boring rectangular or circular boards. I think I’ve found a way to robustly transfer vector artwork from Illustrator to Eagle.
