Hi all, in this post I’ll be talking about my newest interesting project.
At first, I want to explain this project briefly;
Actually I’ve never worked with embedded devices until this project. My idea was quite simple, I just wanted to get real temperature and send these values to cloud to be able access everywhere, anytime.
Netduino sends values within 2 seconds, and projects get data foreach 3 seconds. By this way, I can see real temperature values quickly.
Self-balancing Robot is very interesting. Many friends around us were trying to make one, but they encounted a lot of chanllenges including the lack of the easy-to- assembly structures, the suitable electronic circuits and the programs. So I decided to make a self-balancing robot as simple as possible.
Thanks to Arduino team that almost every maker has one Arduino board in hand. Among those Arduino boards, Arduino UNO R3 is the most universal entry-level board. Arduino UNO is open source and there are huge of applications based it. We want to help those who has the similar idea of making a self-balancing robot based on the Arduino UNO.
The Raspberry Pi has become an extremely popular development platform (see “Arduino, Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone?”). It can run Linux and hooks up to displays and Ethernet networks. The latest incarnation has four USB ports.
The Raspberry Pi platform is set to receive yet another Linux distribution, this time Firefox OS. Mozilla is now working to release its distribution on the mini PC in an effort to demonstrate just how versatile this OS really is.
http://blog.sunyday.net/So you built this cool Arduino based test gear that does quality control tests on a piece of hardware. It's time to ship to the customer, and you need to send them a sheet of paper with the test results.
It contains and 8 way 2 stage tail mechanism and animatronic lips, jaw and tongue. The remaining parts are rod controlled. A myriad of techniques were deployed in its construction – the torso and limbs were hand-carved from Queensland Maple while the joints were custom made from recycled parts of RC cars and planes. The skeleton of the tail was custom made from acrylic and cut on a laser cutter. The head contains an underskull of fibreglass, dental acrylic teeth and silicone skin. The muscle groups are also made of deadened, encapsulated silicone.
Five years ago we built our first book scanner from salvage and scrap. Book digitization was the domain of giants — Microsoft and Google. Commercial book scanners cost as much as a small car. Unless you chose to destroy your books in sheet-feed or flatbed scanners, there was no safe and affordable way to preserve the contents of your bookshelf on your e-reader.
Collectively, we tried to fix that. Over 2,000 people contributed more than 350 designs and thousands of lines of code at diybookscanner.org.
The latest revision of the BeagleBone Black is shipping with a 4GB eMMC, and it’s now possible to get it pre-imaged with Debian Wheezy, a more broadly useful production-isn environment than Angstrom. If you have a rev. B BeagleBone Black, you might want to run Debian on yours as well.
BeagleBoard.org only provides instructions for using a Windows machine to set up an SD card with the Debian Wheezy image, so I wanted to document a parallel set of directions and utilities for OS X user
Many artists will use looping stations to slowly build up an entire song in real-time as they play, recording one track at a time. There are plenty of great examples of this on YouTube. This project will show you how to use a BeagleBone Black, sound card, Python, and Pure Data to build an audio looping station for use with instruments. This looping station will allow you to build a loop, alter tempo, and adjust the loop as it plays. You’ll also lay the groundwork for building very complex synthesizers and effects pedals using the BeagleBone and Pure Data.
Arduino and Raspberry Pi are great, well-utilized DIY boards for hacking just about anything you want to design. But if you're looking for an alternate hacker board, here are seven presented at this week's Designers of Things conference.
Glen Popiel, KW5GP, author of the newly released ARRL publication Arduino for Ham Radio will be the featured guest on a webcast on Thursday, October 30, at 0100 UTC by Tom Medlin, W5KUB. Arduino devices are powerful and inexpensive microcontrollers,and they are an easy way for radio amateurs, students, and professionals to create devices that interact with their environment through sensors and actuators. Popiel will discuss the Arduino and its many applications and demonstrate projects from his book.
A central part of our analytic software is Redis, a very popular and powerful NoSQL in cache memory data structure server. It runs on majority of Linux distributions, *BSD and many other UNIXes. It has a nice and friendly community and you get lots of help around. For our analytic software Redis was a natural choice: several ways to structure data in memory, very fast, no threading and simple.
