Julian Ilett: Postbag Summary (1-10)

Julian Ilett

What can I say about a man I have never met: Actually quite a lot seeing as that man is Julian Ilett, and he has uploaded a considerable number of videos to YouTube.  Instead of my ramblings though, I am going to leave you with a brief excerpt of how he describes himself on YouTube.

I buy the cheapest electronic modules and components I can find, direct from China, and try to do interesting and useful things with them.  Currently playing with: ESP8266 WiFi modules, Arduino microcontrollers, nRF24L01+ wireless data transceivers, OLED LCD LED displays and sensors... 
Absolutely won't touch: Unbranded cheap mains powered devices.

Reason for this Post?
I am in the process of watching/re-watching Julian Illet's YouTube series "Postbag". And I am going to document here in this post, probably with updates, the items he has purchased. Later I will be doing another post documenting all the items that I am also interested in experimenting with.
