Quantum Circuit Simulator

All I wanted for Christmas was a quantum circuit simulator. So I wrote one in Javascript using NumericJS.

Check it out:

For a good "Hello world" circuit, here's the diagram for a Bell State...
Try evaluating it yourself and see that |00> or |11> are the only possible outcomes.

You can even compile your own circuits into gates to use in other circuits.

Construct a circuit that transforms a single qubit into |0> with 75% probability and |1> with 25% probability, such as:
Then compile that into gate "F" and use it to create a superposition of |00> with 75% prob and |11> with 25% prob, like this:
Let me know if you find any use out of this. And definitely let me know if you find any bugs.

DIY Solar Powered LoRa Repeater (with Arduino)

In today's video I be built a solar powered LoRa signal repeater to extend the range of my LoRa network. This can easily be used as the basis for a LoRa mesh network with a bit of extra code and additional repeaters. Even if you're not into LoRa networks all of the solar power hardware in this video can be used for any off-the-grid electronics projects or IoT nodes!  

A Lesson in LoRa Module P2P Standards (or the Lack Thereof)

I got a handful of LoRa modules from Reyax a while back, the RYLR896 model based on Semtech SX1276 chips. Instead of using an SPI interface they operate over UART using a small set of AT commands. This made them easier to work with since I didn't have to dig too deeply into a bunch of SPI registers and Semtech specs and they communicate between one another really well. My Espruino JS module for them is available here , which I've used in a few of my YouTube videos. And more recently I've written a MicroPython module for them here .   (A pair of Reyax RYLR896  modules) But, always being on the lookout for different boards and platforms I eventually ended up with a few Maduino LoRa boards. These are cool because they have an Arduino-compatible ATmega328 and the same Semtech LoRa chip (via an RFM95) both integrated on one board. They weren't compatible with Espruino or MicroPython though, and they used the SPI interface instead of AT commands so I knew I would need to lo

Always Secure Your localhost Servers

Recently I was surprised to learn that web browsers allow any site you visit to make requests to resources on localhost (and that they will happily allow unreported mixed-content ). If you'd like to test this out, run an HTTP server on port 8080 (for instance with python -m http.server 8080 ) and then visit this page. You should see "Found: HTTP (8080)" listed and that's because the Javascript on that page made an HTTP GET request to your local server to determine that it was running. Chances are it detected other services as well (for instance if you run Tor or Keybase locally). There are two implications from this that follow: Website owners could potentially use this to collect information about what popular services are running on your local network. Malicious actors could use this to exploit vulnerabilities in those services. Requests made this way are limited in certain ways since they're considered opaque , meaning that the web page isn't able
