import eagle boards in mechanical CAD drawings

import eagle boards in mechanical CAD drawings | Arduino progz | Scoop.it
Usually you use eagle to design your printed circuit boards (PCBs) only in 2 dimensions (when not considering the layers as 3rd layer). This gives you some headaches for narrow space designs like in small cases.

Bio Circuit: Wearable Arduino

Bio Circuit: Wearable Arduino | Arduino progz | Scoop.it

Bio Circuit explores the interrelations of humans and the environment through wearable computing. The vest is a wearable soundscape that uses the wearer’s physiological state to provide bio feedback of their own state of calmness or anxiety. This is provided in the form of recorded sounds the wearer hears through a speaker embedded in the collar of the vest. If the wearer’s heart rate is low, the soundscape will reflect a quiet, natural area with sounds such as water, birds, and in- sects. If the wearer has a high heart rate, they will hear a cacophony of urban sounds such as people talking and traffic.

Ardusumo: an Open Source Platform for Fighting Robots

Ardusumo: an Open Source Platform for Fighting Robots | Arduino progz | Scoop.it

Ardusumo is a universal platform to build robots on wheels that can move around avoiding obstacles using infrared sensors and follow routes marked with dark lines on a white background.

We have created Ardusumo to bring young students to the world of robotics: if suitably programmed, Ardusumo allows robots to perform various autonomous movements, it integrates sensors and actuators of various types with wheels and electric motors.

The platform is Arduino based but consists of a single molded frame that is both mechanical and electronic circuit. It has also various possible assembly, thanks to the modularity and versatility of the connections.
