Power your Bathroom by Water Tap

Power your Bathroom by Water Tap | Open Source Hardware News | Scoop.it
Shortage of Electrical energy is a big problem in my country and load shading occurs regularly here. So, most of the time I think about energy efficiency and renewable energy. Suddenly one thing came to my mind, why I am not using the water flow of bathroom water tap to light my bathroom. Bathroom does not required big energy. I used 7 watts CFL to light my bathroom. I replaced it by LED light powered by small hydro generator fixed to the water tap. It is working very well from two months.

Bluetooth Controlled LED Wearable with Intel Edison

Bluetooth Controlled LED Wearable with Intel Edison | Open Source Hardware News | Scoop.it
Have you ever imagined a world where you can change the pattern of a dress with a push of the button? Or a to able to change the height of a hem with a swipe of you finger? Technology makes control and customization possible in places where usually you do not. The phone has become the most used personal device and while it can be the ultimate tool of distraction, it's also useful as a wireless controller. Color has always been very exciting to me, I can swoon while looking at a lilac ash and get giddy over a kelly green. Being able to change the color of something that I am wearing has always interested me and comes to me a good basic means of control when brainstorming about dynamic wearables.Using a bluetooth enabled microcontroller and Android phone, this project gives you control over an RGB LED. These LEDs ...

Audio Server and Recorder With Intel Edison - All

Audio Server and Recorder With Intel Edison - All | Open Source Hardware News | Scoop.it
One of the great things about the Intel Edison is that it can act as a server. This means that you can store files and share them if you like. This a great opportunity for curating playlists and storing other audio files. This can kind of be thought of a digital version of the mixtape. I sure miss those!You can create a directory structure on the Edison and share it with your friends via a HTML page. Anyone with the IP address and who is connected to the same network as the Edison can access your files.The Edison isn't only a storage unit though, you can interact with it and it's GPIOs. In this Instructable you will learn how to set up an audio server and how to record, play and embed recordings. This can be used to take field recordings or to record your next great idea and share ...

Arduino Laser Engraver Wood Design!

Arduino Laser Engraver Wood Design! | Open Source Hardware News | Scoop.it

Hi everybody, my name is Michiel and I am going to show you how to make an awesome looking laser engraver!A couple of months ago, there was a CNC challenge here at instructables, while checking out the entries of that contest, I saw some pretty cool engraving machines and I thought: "Why shouldn't I make my own?". And so I did, but I didn't want to make someone else's project, I wanted to make my own. And so my story began... :)This laser engraver uses a 1.8W 445nm laser module, of course, this is nothing compared to the industrial laser cutters who use lasers of (a lot) more than 50W. But this laser will do well for us. It can cut through paper and cardboard and it can engrave all kinds of wood. I haven't tested other materials yet, but I'm sure it can engrave many other materials. l will ...

Ada Robotic Hand - Open Bionics

Ada Robotic Hand - Open Bionics | Open Source Hardware News | Scoop.it
This is a step by step guide on how to make an Open Bionics Ada robotic hand. This is derived from the Dextrus robotic hand, by the Open Hand Project. It assumes you have either ordered the Ada robotic hand kit or have access to a 3D printer are planning to print 3D parts from YouMagine or thingiverse. The list of required 3D printed parts, components and tools are stated below. If you have ordered the Ada kit, you can skip the first step and start straight from step 2.This hand would provide an excellent research platform for robotics or a test platform for prosthetics research. It has been designed to be easy to build and repair and should be a great project for someone with interests in robotics or prosthetics and wants their very own robotic hand!This instructable will take you through the assembly of the 3D printed parts, ...

Remote Wi-Fi DHT11 Temperature an Humidity I2C 2 X 16 LCD Display With Two ESP8266 and Visuino

Remote Wi-Fi DHT11 Temperature an Humidity I2C 2 X 16 LCD Display With Two ESP8266 and Visuino | Open Source Hardware News | Scoop.it
ESP8266 modules are great low cost stand alone controllers with built in Wi-Fi, and I already made a simple Blink instructable with ESP8266 NodeMCU module.The advantage of the ESP8266 over Arduino and other controllers is the builtin Wi-Fi. In this Instructable I will show you how with the help of Visuino you can use two ESP8266 modules to make a remote LCD Display for Temperature and Humidity DHT11 sensor.In the Instructable, I will use 2 NodeMCU modules. One version 0.9, and the other 1.0. The NodeMCU are the easiest way to program and experiment with ESP8266 controllers. This Instructable however can easily be done with other modules, and the Sensor module can even use ESP-01 module as it needs only one GPIO pin to connect to the DHT11 sensor.Please note that the annotation on some of the pictures in this Instructable will work correctly on some browsers only after you ...

Getting Started With OpenCV and Intel Edison

Getting Started With OpenCV and Intel Edison | Open Source Hardware News | Scoop.it
As robots begin to populate the planet they will need a way to "see" the world similarly to the way we humans do and be able to use this vision data to make decisions. Today a very popular computer vision system is the self-driving car. As humans, we take for granted how fast our brains process all the visual stimuli of the road. We just intuitively know how to stay in our lane and react to deviations by steering without thinking too much. For a robot however this is a much more complex problem. Cameras mounted to self-driving cars watch for lane markers on either side of the vehicle to make sure the car is staying inside its own lane. Calculations running at thousands of times per second then crunch this visual data and determine the best adjustments to steer the car. Kind of amazing right!?!High Level OverviewIn this Instructable ...
