The Raspberry Pi line of devices are inexpensive, low-power, credit card-sized computers. But while there are USB ports for connecting a keyboard, mouse, gamepad, or other accessories, there are also a series of GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) pins that allow you to connect hardware in other ways.For instance, you can connect a HAT (Hardware Attached on Top) board to add motor controllers, GPS, a display, or other features.Now the folks at Pi 2 Design has launched a Kickstarter campaign for one of the most ridiculous/awesome-looking HATs I’ve seen.Continue reading Clearly your Raspberry Pi needs a tube amp (crowdfunding) at Liliputing.

In this multi-part tutorial we show how to develop Arduino-based apps for the Web of Things (WoT). This third part shows how to set up a connection between an Arduino and the Internet via a WiFi network and use HTTP(S) to send data to a free cloud service like ThingSpeak.
In this experiment an Arduino controls the voltage on the gate of a Power MOSFET that turns an inductive motor on and off. I'm using a Power MOSFET IRF520. It is an N Channel MOSFETSee it on Scoop.it, via tecno4
The internet of things is this strange marketing buzzword that seems to escape from the aether and infect our toasters and refrigerators. Now even a hamster is not safe.[Mifulapirus]’s hamster, Ham, was living a pleasant hamster life. Then his owner heard about another hamster named Sushi, whose running wheel stats were broadcasted to the internet. Not to be left behind, Ham’s wheel was soon upgraded.
