ISS Mimic: A Raspberry Pi-powered International Space Station model that syncs with the real thing. A group of us NASA engineers work on the International Space Station (ISS) for our day-jobs but craved something more tangible than computer models and data curves to share with the world.

ISS Mimic: A Raspberry Pi-powered International Space Station model that syncs with the real thing

So, in our free time, we built ISS Mimic. It’s still in the works, but we are publishing now to celebrate 20 years of continuous human presence in space on the ISS. This video was filmed and produced by our friend, new teammate, and Raspberry Pi regular Estefannie of Estefannie Explains it All. Most of the images in this blog are screen grabbed from her wonderful video too. What does Mimic do? ISS Mimic is a 1% scale model of the International Space Station, bringing the American football field-sized beauty down to a tabletop-sized build. Physical connection Despite the global ISS effort, most people seem to feel disconnected from space exploration and all the STEAM goodness within.

Looking inside we find the meter mechanism and a fairly large coil. The coil consists of four double wires with 16 loops each. The antagonist is of the type Moving Iron. PX-HER0 Board.

Technoblogy. 2nd February 2019 This is a small battery-powered thermometer that displays the temperature as a binary sequence of red and green flashes on a bi-colour LED: ATtiny10-based thermometer, flashes the temperature on a bi-colour LED.


It consists of an ATtiny10, a DS18B20 1-wire temperature sensor, and a bi-colour LED, and fits on a printed circuit board 19mm (0.75") in diameter including a 12mm CR1225 button cell. To avoid the need for a digital display, and minimise current consumption, the thermometer pulses the temperature as a series of red or green flashes on the bi-colour LED. It's based on my earlier project ATtiny10 Thermometer, which also gives details of the way in which temperatures are encoded. KiteBoard.

I still have this machine in the loft – I wonder if it still works? I reproduce Johns pages here for posterity and just in case all his work on this resource disappears. The following pages was created by John Honniball. - Enables Open Source Hardware Innovation. Visuino. Viduino is designed around the concept of software components.


Each component represents ready to use functionality. Some of the components represent and are designed to control real hardware such as Sensor, Motor or Servo, others are representing pure software functionality such as signal generator, filter, mathematical function, or communication protocol. The components have connection points called "Pins", and the Pins can be connected with "Wires" sending data between the components. Electronic Waste Gets a New Life with a Raspberry Pi. Technology Published on August 5th, 2014 | by Jeff McIntire-Strasburg When we use the term “upcycling,” we’re almost always discussing creative reuse of materials by the crafty set: folks that have a sewing machine, and pinking shears, and a hot glue gun at the ready.

Electronic Waste Gets a New Life with a Raspberry Pi

But there’s no reason that the techie crowd can’t get in on this game: in fact, these are the folks that still have old Sega Genesis consoles buried somewhere in a closet because they might come up with something to do with it one day. ScratchX. What is ScratchX?


ScratchX is a platform that enables people to test experimental functionality built by developers for the visual programming language Scratch. What's the difference between Scratch and ScratchX? Scratch is a programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations. ScratchX is a separate experimental platform built to test experimental Scratch features, also known as Experimental Extensions.

Arduino Simulators Lineup - Start Developing Without a Real Board. Launched in 2005, the Arduino open hardware and software platform has grown to be very popular among hobbyists, educators, and professionals alike, gaining momentum especially in the robotics field. Backed by a massive online community, and with most development boards and hardware accessories available at very low prices, this platform is perhaps the best place to start in working with embedded devices. But what if you want to learn programming and do not own an Arduino board, or are overwhelmed by the selection of hardware out there? This is where simulation software comes in.

The low-power short-range (50-200 feet or so)Transceiver is available on a board with Arduino interface and built-in Antenna for less than $3! There is also a high-power version (right). nRF24L01 Modules (Left to Right) NOTE! Build your own robotic vacuum from scratch. Build your own robotic vacuum from scratch Arduino Team — September 23rd, 2016 This dust buster-based robotic vacuum may or may not work as well as a Roomba. If you’re fascinated by the idea of a robotic vaccum cleaner to keep you from having to do certain chores, you could buy an iRobot, or you could make your own instead.

This particular DIY model uses four motors for locomotion, an Arduino Uno, IR and ultrasonic sensors to avoid obstacles, as well as a (formerly) handheld vacuum cleaner to suck up debris. The assembly sits on a wooden chassis, and as author B. In this project we will use the power of embedded systems and electronics to make our own robot which could help us in keeping our home or work place neat and tidy. Bean - Punch Through. Michael Teeuw. A few weeks ago I replaced the MagicMirror Raspberry’s power supply with a 2A version to improve stability.

Unfortunately this new power supply tends to shutdown after a while. I expect this is caused by overheating due to the fact it was mounted directly on display. I’ve now moved the power supply to the bottom side of the mirror with some added spacing in between. Hopefully this solves the issue. 6domotica, iot, usb, power, magicmirror, internetofthings, raspberrypi, mirror, electronics, makers, smart, anotherhashtag. PfodApp V2™ and pfodDevices™ “A really great app but the underlying protocol is the real genius behind the app.Was able to develop a relatively sophisticated interface for an arduino project in a short time with straight forward code.Just about any embedded micro project can benefit from the interface that this app provides.”Google Play review posted by Greg Brandt Check out the new Arduino for Beginners, controlled by Android. Also see Single Click Control for turning devices on and off with one click.

For programmers check out the new pfodDesignerV2 which lets you interactively designs pfodApp menus and then generate the Arduino sketch to serve the menu via bluetooth or Wifi/ethernet or SMS and handles the commands returned. Unleash the power of your Arduino or other micro project with pfodApp. Show people that you are not just playing with circuits but building useful devices, like a garage door remotes, dimmable room lighting, etc, that they can control from their Android mobile.

Goldilocks Analogue = classic Arduino + audio superpowers by Phillip Stevens. Goldilocks Analogue. Recap I’ve been working on the Goldilocks Analogue now for so long that its been the centerpiece of my coding evenings for the past 18 months.

This is the first time that I’ve designed a piece of hardware, and I’ve managed to make many mistakes (or learnings) along the way, so I think that every […] Just over 6 months since the third iteration of the Goldilocks Analogue Prototyping was started, and now I’ve finished the design for a forth iteration. The Goldilocks Analogue Prototype 4 design is now finished, and I’m working out what the final bill of materials will cost to assemble into a final outcome.
