Digital tools are vital (I rely on them virtually everyday), but sometimes in order to really understand a phenomena we have to get a bit closer. That’s where analog analysis tools come in handy. Something special happens when we connect our brains to our hands. In essence, hand-on is minds-on. Moreover, these analog analysis tools can help us readily engage with and record phenomena in our environment. We can adequately record and/or verify without complicated instruments.
