Ethernet, Bluetooth, Wifi, XBEE and GPRS to name the most known. [Linux] Beagleboard GPS+GPRS (cellphone) Module. – 08/06/2011Posted in: General, PCB, PCB, Space Camera This is my design for a GPS/GPRS module that integrates and stacks upon a Beagleboard.

[Linux] Beagleboard GPS+GPRS (cellphone) Module

You can talk to it and power it through USB (or alternative). You can request GPS positions, place calls, textmessages, post to HTTP/FTP servers, HTTP requests, the whole shabang. The PCB design in currently in production in shanghai [white PCB color], due to arrive the end of July. [Linux] Beagleboard GPS SMS Cellphone Module ready! This board i made for the Space Camera Live project, as a backup GPS system, that can also send SMS messages and make some calls.

[Linux] Beagleboard GPS SMS Cellphone Module ready!

Most importantly, it can get python scripts loaded to it. For instance, you can call it up (it takes a sim card) – then ofcourse it will not pick it up, but it will send you back an SMS message immediatelly containing its GPS coordinates! This module is spaced such that it can be hooked up to the Beagle Board easily, it has the same hole dimensions and sizes as the board. Also, ofcourse, this board can be used with any machine that has USB (every machine); so it can also be used as an evaluation board. Not bad for just $3 production costs. Prototype without flaws, works 100% This prototype worked out of the box. Module design, schematics, internals, etc I designed this module myself.

The Verbalizer - An open source board to use with Google's Voice Search for Desktop.

With Google announcing the launch of Voice Search for desktop, we couldn’t help thinking that there was even more fun to be had with talking to a computer.

The Verbalizer - An open source board to use with Google's Voice Search for Desktop

So, we went ahead and built an open source dev board to inspire people to build their own useful and wacky contraptions to take Voice Search to another level. Out of the box, the Verbalizer connects wirelessly to your computer via Bluetooth and when triggered, opens google.com in a new tab and activates Voice Search.

GPS datalogging shield for Arduino. Would you like to use your Arduino to create geo-locative art? Or make a custom GPS device that can log sensor data along with the precise time and location? Perhaps you're looking to make a tracker, or want to make your own geocaching hardware. You are in luck! Here is my design for a Arduino shield that is perfect for any sort of project or artpiece that requires GPS precision time or location data. This shield supports any of four popular GPS modules and stores data on a standard DOS-formatted SD flash memory card. SEMAGEEK : Actualités High Tech, Robot, Électronique, DIY et Arduino.
