„Weasure is a clever system designed to not only weigh, but also measure packages for shipment. With the touch of a button, the weight and dimensions are shown on a display and uploaded to a PC through the PC’s serial port. Then, the data can be input directly into an order form on a shipping company’s web site. Weasure is built around an M16C/62P microcontroller.“
It’s not a really a Microsoft surface, but it will show some basics.
„In this article Frank Zhao details his project to make a Logic Analyzer with an ATMEGA168 microcontroller. This is the same microcontroller used in the popular Arduino platform so many of you should be able to make use of this project. The ATMEGA168 does the work of taking samples and works with Processing and Java to implement an nice user interface to the logic analyzer. Frank includes all the source code for both the firmware and the Processing programming language.“
