Skube – A Last.fm & Spotify Radio {+ tangible} at { sound + design } Rethinking home audio and understanding how and where people share music was the jumping point for creating Skube.

Skube – A Last.fm & Spotify Radio {+ tangible} at { sound + design }

We realized that as we are moving more towards a digital and online music listening experience, current portable music players are not adapted for this environment. And sharing music in communal spaces is neither convenient nor easy, especially when we all have such different taste in music. The result of our exploration is Skube, a music player that allows you to discover and share music and facilitates the decision process of picking tracks when in a communal setting. There are two modes, Playlist and Discovery. Playlist plays the tracks on your Skube, while Discovery looks for tracks similar to the ones on your Skube so you can discover new music that still fits your taste.

Form The interface is designed to be intuitive and tangible. How it works It is a fully working prototype through the combination of using Arduino, Max/MSP and an XBee wireless network. Credit. How to make a Physical Gmail Notifier - Blog - Jamie Matthews. Or: how to turn this.. into this..

I was given a lovely glowing cube by the generous people at Linden Labs as a freebie at a job fair yesterday, and I decided that it was far too attractive to simply sit there on a shelf, pulsating forlornly until its batteries went flat. How about making it useful, while maintaining its visual appeal? The following guide is deliberately fairly high-level, because the exact details will vary depending on your operating system and particular hardware setup. Multi-tasking the Arduino - Part 2. Often in a project you need the processor to do just one more thing.

How can you make it do that when it is busy with other things? One Man Band photo circa 1865 by Knox via Wikimedia is in the public domain. Multi-tasking the Arduino - Part 1. Bigger and Better Projects Once you have mastered the basic blinking leds, simple sensors and sweeping servos, it’s time to move on to bigger and better projects.

Multi-tasking the Arduino - Part 1

That usually involves combining bits and pieces of simpler sketches and trying to make them work together. The first thing you will discover is that some of those sketches that ran perfectly by themselves, just don’t play well with others. The Arduino is a very simple processor with no operating system and can only run one program at a time. Unlike your personal computer or a Raspberry Pi, the Arduino has no way to load and run multiple programs.

That doesn’t mean that we can’t manage multiple tasks on an Arduino. NFC Computer Unlocker #Arduino. April 28, 2014 AT 5:00 am.

Take the Cortex 3D-printed cast, designed by Jake Evill. Strong, lightweight and stylish, each cast could be custom-fit to the wearer and allowed the skin to breathe.The Osteoid cast by designer Deniz Karasahin — winner of a prestigious A’ Design Award — takes the same basic idea of a custom-built 3D-printed cast and refines it. Adafruit Motor Selection Guide. There are many types of motors.

Big ones, small ones, fast ones, strong ones. Whether you need brute strength, blinding speed or delicate precision movement, there is a motor designed for the task. The following pages will help you find to the right motor for your project. This quick selection guide highlights the strong points of the various types of motors. You can find more detail on each motor type in the pages that follow. Adafruit NeoPixel Überguide. Controlling NeoPixels “from scratch” is quite a challenge, so we provide a library letting you focus on the fun and interesting bits.

Arduino: Автоматическая подсветка лестницы. Ws2812b led strip или аналог Ambilight/Aurea за пять минут (или чуть дольше) (обновлено 22.11.14г. "Android") Добрый вечер, дамы и господа. Сегодня я расскажу вам как за пять-десять минут с помощью паяльника, трех проводков и матерного слова (ну еще и ардуино с лентой на ws2812b) собрать аналог Ambilight от филипс, который по некоторым параметрам будет превосходить его. Светодиоды - маркировка, характеристика, подключение. Цвет свечения светодиода зависит от добавок добавленных в полупроводник.
