If you want a hobby, here are 5 reasons why I recommend electronics
In this issue, we will introduce a hobby that we recommend to those who are looking for a hobby with many such benefits: electronic engineering.
There are five reasons why we recommend electronics, all of which will be discussed in detail in this article.
After reading this article, you will understand why electronic construction is recommended, and you will surely want to "start doing electronic construction.
Let us begin with the first reason why we recommend electronic work.
Exposure to the world's most advanced technology
The first reason why we recommend electronic construction is that it allows you to be exposed to the most advanced technology in the world.
In the world of technology, new things continue to emerge, one after another, as follows
- 3D printer, etc.
There is a difference in reaction between an ordinary person and an electronic engineer when something new is created, as follows.
For example, even individuals are using 3D printers to create cases and packages like this, which was rare 7 or 8 years ago, but is now commonplace.
Prices are also becoming much lower, about the price of a home printer.
In addition, the "Jestson nano" microcontroller board, which is designed for easy AI development, and the "Jestson nano" microcontroller board, which is designed for easy AI development, are also available,
There is also an item available from Google called the "AIY Voice Kit" that allows you to easily customize the "AI Speaker" in your own way.
Just by incorporating these into the gadgets you are making, you can actually experience cutting-edge technology.
This is the first reason why we recommend electronics.
Low cost to get started
The second reason why we recommend electronics is that it is a low-cost way to get started.
Although it may seem surprising, electronic engineering is actually classified as a "money-saving hobby.
There are two reasons for this.
- Low unit cost of parts
- Parts and sensors can be used interchangeably.
The first reason for not spending more money is, after all, the low unit cost of parts.
For example, this resistor, which is often used in electronic components, contains 100 parts for 100 yen.
In other words, each unit costs 1 yen.
Other transistors here are sold for 10 yen each, which is no longer cheaper than a candy bar.
With only one coin elsewhere, for example, you can choose from a large number of sensors, including
The second reason for not spending more money is the ability to use the same parts and sensors.
In other words, all that is required is the initial investment.
I hope you understand that this is a hobby that does not cost a lot of money.
This is the second reason why we recommend electronics.
Fun for everyone regardless of age, gender, location, or skill.
The third reason why we recommend electronics is that it is fun for everyone, regardless of age, gender, location, or skill.
The hurdles are very low in the world of electronics, as anyone with an interest in "technology" and "making things" is welcome.
This is immediately obvious if you go to a large scale manufacturing event like a "Maker Faire".
A wide range of people, from veterans to families, gather at one venue to enjoy themselves.
One bottleneck, parts procurement, has recently become easier and cheaper, as online shopping has become the norm.
This is the third reason why we recommend electronics.
The fourth reason why we recommend electronic work is that you will meet unexpected people.
For example, when I was doing electronics work, I used to use certain development software and post how to use it on my blog.
The blog was found by someone at CQ Publishing, a bible in the electrical industry, and I was asked to write a feature article for a magazine called "Interface.
Another time, I went to an electronics event and hit it off with a venture company that deals with gadgets for smartphones, and we ended up working together on a project.
This is the kind of experience we gained there.
- I got an up-close look at how the venture fights.
- Board design outside of main business
- Sold in physical stores
I gained a lot of these unprecedented experiences.
Also, through the community of manufacturing enthusiasts who gathered voluntarily at the company, I was able to make horizontal connections with people with whom I do not normally work, and I realized that my network was growing wider and wider.
I can say that I would not have encountered these events if I had not been involved in electronics.
This is the fourth reason why we recommend electronics.
Fun to do.
The fifth and final reason for recommending electronics is that it is fun to do.
There is an indescribable sense of accomplishment in seeing one's own vision take shape and materialize, and when one is immersed in the process, one forgets to eat or sleep.
When you are making things by yourself, you have to do everything by yourself, from idea generation to electrical design, programming, 3D modeling, etc.
Of course it's hard work, but because every step of the process has its own fun part, I can't stop doing it no matter how many times I do it.
The fun is even greater when it comes to your own favorite software and tools.
These are things you will all become addicted to once you taste them.
This is the fifth reason why we recommend electronics.

These are the five reasons why I recommend electronics.
I will review it again.
- Exposure to the world's most advanced technology
- Low cost to get started
- Fun for everyone regardless of age, gender, location, or skill.
- Unexpected encounters.
- What can I say, it's fun!
If you are lacking in hobbies, then why not try stepping into the world of electronics?
One last piece of advice.
I think the most important thing in finding a hobby, after all, is "whether or not it will be enjoyable for me at the end of the day.
We recommend that you first visit the " GUGEN " website to see if you think electronic construction is fun.
Since 2013, GUGEN has been one of the largest hardware contests in Japan, with many individual creators submitting their works.
And all the works submitted so far can be viewed online as an archive.
The archives will give you some idea of whether or not you might enjoy electronics work.
If your heart is even a little bit aflutter, I think it is worthwhile to start working with electronics.
Please take a look at GUGEN.
In this article, I have explained five reasons why I recommend electronic engineering as a hobby for those who are in need of a hobby.
I honestly believe that no other hobby has so many good things going for it, and I really strongly recommend it because it has the potential to completely change your life if you continue.
If you have never thought about it before, why not consider it?
Other videos and articles are also available to help beginners learn electronics construction systematically from zero, including explanations of the minimum knowledge and tools they should acquire.
