The OpenHardwareExG platform was originally developed as part of the eeg-mouse project. About the OpenHardwareExG project. Matterport: 3D Camera, Capture & Virtual Tour Platform. Playing Chess on a Beautiful, Magnetized Globe. “I think I can do it better.”

Playing Chess on a Beautiful, Magnetized Globe

Having this thought is a moment that every maker knows and loves. It is exactly what came to mind when Ben Meyers saw a picture of a spherical chess set online. The version he had come across used jacket snaps to connect the pieces to the board. He immediately thought this looked inconvenient and challenging to play with. So he set out to make his own. Photography and media by Ben Meyers The board took about five weeks to complete from start to finish.

It is obvious when looking at the beautiful final product that each piece was artfully crafted with exceptional attention to detail. From here, the base was turned on the lathe and a router was used to make the curved arm. Finally, the spacer and knob used to turn the board were made on the lathe. Studio.

ESP8266 Successor – ESP32 released with CAN support  ​o, the interesting little ESP8266 WiFi SoC finally has a younger brother which appears to be even more capable.

ESP8266 Successor – ESP32 released with CAN support 

Among other interesting updates, the 32 bit Dual Core microcontroller still supports WiFi, but also Bluetooth Low Energy, a DAC, many more ADCs, GPIO pins, etc. etc. Lots of good details here: The ESP32 is now avaialble to buy directly as a chip, or on small development boards. Unfortunately however, everywhere is currently sold out, so it will be a while before I get one. The feature which particularly piqued my interest, however was the mention of CAN 2.0 support. There are already a number of other microcontroller which do offer CAN bus support (actually the list is probably huge since nearly all automotive and industrial spec controllers will) but for example the Arduio Due (Atmel SAM3X8E ARM Cortex- M3 CPU) and the Teensy development boards support CAN. So far i haven’t managed to find any now details on the cab bus interface.

MichMich/MagicMirror: MagicMirror² MEMS mike draws almost no power. 25 May 2017 Acoustic sensor developer Vesper has launched the VM1010, said to be the first MEMS microphone to enable voice activation while drawing almost no power.

MEMS mike draws almost no power

The first member of Vesper’s ZeroPower Listening MEMS microphone product line, the VM1010 is said to allow product designers to offer touchless user interfaces without power consumption penalties. Consuming 6µA while in listening mode, VM1010 is said to extend battery life to months or years by enabling the rest of the system to power down completely while waiting for a keyword. “We are seeing a ‘Cambrian Explosion’ of voice-enabled consumer electronics, including smart speakers, smart earbuds and diverse IoT products,” said Matt Crowley, Vesper’s CEO. “The problem is that speech recognition can consume 1mW or more and that is why most voice-activated devices must be plugged in. The VM1010 is a low-noise, high dynamic range, single-ended analogue output piezoelectric MEMS microphone. HackerEarth - Programming challenges and Developer jobs. Live online auctions site.

Touch Screen coffee table DIY with 32" TV and low cost CCD sensor. I have already talked about the great hardware specifications of the Teensy board.

But combined with the Arduino software environment, the Teensy also offers some great possibilities. But first let's install the plug-in Now you should see a category "Teensy" when you choose your board. And if you select it, you have access to several other options like the "USB Serial Type" to instantly transform your board into a USB keyboard or mouse (some possibilities can be found on Arduino Leonardo). The USB communication type is a "Full Speed" which means it can communicate at 12Mb/s. Design Thinking for Educators. Canvanizer. Literary gold mine for CNC millers. From 1976 to 1983, Popular Science magazine, along with the American Plywood Association, ran an annual plywood panel project design contest for its readership.

Literary gold mine for CNC millers

Often the winning projects were items of furniture, but that was not a requirement. A potter’s kick wheel and a folding plywood boat are notable exceptions. The rules were simple: Apart from common fasteners, the entire project had to be constructed from one or more panels of plywood, cut to make most efficient use of the material. In 1984, these projects were collected, by original contest editor Alfred W. Fanciest Camping Tent Trailer Ever! OSVehicle® - Open Source Vehicle - TABBY EVO.
