Arduino is probably the world's most popular open source physical computing platform. The little micro-controllers show up in everything from wild art projects to serious home automation efforts. It's great and all, but couldn't it be…smaller?
NASA is looking into whether structures of a spaceship can be printed in space using 3D printers. To show the idea, the image above was created by a NASA contractor. It's funny, it sort of looks like the top of the Enterprise's ...
Thymio II is a new educational robot designed by Swiss research institute EPFL.
In the past year alone, Swiss research institute EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne/Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) has brought us things such as a mini ionic motor for satellites, “nano velcro” that removes pollutants from water, and a system that allows paralyzed rats to walk again. While none of these items will ever likely be available to regular consumers, now there is a piece of EPFL-developed technology that you can get your hands on. It’s an open-source educational robot known as Thymio II, and it only costs a little over 100 bucks!
Unlike some other educational ‘bots such as NAO or Zeno, Thymio II is not humanoid in form – if anything, it looks a little like a Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner. Although its variable-speed wheels are intended primarily for allowing it to scoot around, they can also be connected to user-supplied moving parts such as arms, propellers, winches, or just about anything else.
Besides those wheels, however, it also features a microphone and speaker, a 3-axis accelerometer, five proximity sensors, two ground sensors, a temperature sensor, and 39 LEDs which allow its body to illuminate in different colors.
It can accept programming via a USB connection (which is also used to charge its lithium-polymer battery) or a memory card slot. Programming is created using EPFL’s robotics-specific ASEBA language.
Thymio II is available now, at a price of 99 Swiss francs (US$106)

If you were to take a shrink ray and point it at the Arduino – you would get something very much like the TinyDuino. The setting for “shrink” will have been pretty high because the TinyDuino packs all the punch of its big cousin ...
