Hilde Kurg's curator insight, May 6, 2015 2:45 PM

Miks tüdrukud ei vali tehnilisi alasi ülikoolis just eriti sageli - kõik algab varajasest suunitlusest ja huvidest. Ennatlikult arvatakse , et robootika - seal ei ole tüdrukutel midagi teha - neid huvitavad ju pigem sotsiaalsed teemad, aga ... kui huvi on äratatud, leitakse, et meeskonnatöö, mis baseerub sotsiaalsetele oskustele, töötab koos tüdrukutega kindlasti paremini !

Making the Arduino talk, beep and sing

Making the Arduino talk, beep and sing | Arduino Focus | Scoop.it

We set out to design our own shield based on what we did and did not like about
the Sparkfun unit. Well, we got scooped. The guys at Droidbuilder built a better mousetrap, er, TTS Speakjet
Shield. It has almost all the features we wanted in our shield, but also
includes a hefty price tag. It is, however, a worthy unit, and has excellent
tutorials. Enjoy the show!

Microcontrolled electro-mechanical, hydraulics, and pneumatics

Microcontrolled electro-mechanical, hydraulics, and pneumatics | Arduino Focus | Scoop.it

We've talked about Grid Beam as a inventors and experimenters dream before, but
the more we dig into it, the more we get excited about it. If you missed our
last article on the subject, Grid Beam is a system of easy to bolt together
modular components made of metal, wood, or plastic. This system has been
developed over the past 60+ years, starting with the original inventor, Ken
Isaacs. He called the system "Living Structures".

It will be hard for a newcomer like TinkerForge's microcontroller platform to reach the same level of community support provided to the Arduino platform, but ups to them and hopefully we will see a lot more such open-source hardware systems!

Build your own Proto Shield for the Arduino

Build your own Proto Shield for the Arduino | Arduino Focus | Scoop.it

The biggest issue with protoshields, is the Arduino funky pin spacing. Mike Cook
has a way to make larger protoshields with plenty of prototyping space. Handier
than breadboards, as the project is more "permanent". Mike has been helping us
with our Arduino
/ Mitutoyo Micrometer project, and has a bunch of great Arduino tutorials on
his website. Check them out, though you will need to do a bit of digging, as he
has all kinds of fascinating stuff posted.
