    HRN 287 TICC for QRZ 250.jpg
    TAPR's John Ackermann N8UR details this little Arduino based device - he calls it a stopwatch - that will measure time to the trillionths of a second. Why does anyone need that, when, according to Star Trek, it's possible to give verbal start-stop commands controlling spacecraft going faster than light? Aaaaand... Go! But I digress.

    This is a fully assembled device, not a kit (I make that mistake in the intro).

    Hats off to John and his team for a very clever design, delivered at a hobbyist cost. The commercial state of the art is a Greenfield Technology GFt2002, with 1 ps single-shot resolution and 10 ps jitter. I bought one a couple years ago and I recall it was about $12k... so it's 10x better but 60x more expensive...

    Faster than a speeding HAL 9000.
