Handibot™: A Smart Digital Power Tool by ShopBot Tools A Handibot tool is a new kind of portable, digitally-controlled power tool for cutting, drilling, carving, and many other machining operations– a first Universal Digital Power Tool (UDPT) – or just, a Smart Tool. If you're familiar with industrial CNC (computer numerically controlled) equipment, think of the Handibot tool as a portable version of CNC. But instead of taking material to a stationary machine, you bring the Handibot to your material -- your jobsite, your remodeling task, your project, your work.

ShopBot Desktop MAX The Pocket Sauna® is just one of many products that SaunaSpace is bringing into the average American home. Brian Richards is the founder and CEO of SaunaSpace, a company that manufactures health-oriented sauna solutions designed to fit into any lifestyle and budget. Their saunas provide what Brian refers to as “an ancestral healing method for the modern home without costly installation or planning,” which allows any consumer to enjoy reduced stress hormones, decreased blood pressure, and improved cardiovascular health. Having a ShopBot PRSalpha helped Brian bring the healing nature of saunas into the typical home with a range of convenient and manageable sauna installations, making real products out of lofty ideas. A CNC tool helps SaunaSpace add repeatable precision to production. When Richards was first getting started, he applied for a substantial business loan so he could get his idea off the ground.

Pulse Sensor: an Open Source Heart-rate Sensor that Rocks by Yury Gitman * We've been getting great questions from our backers and are building a FAQ at the bottom of this page. If your question is not there, send us a message and we'll get back to you! “Pulse Sensor” is a well-designed plug-and-play heart-rate sensor for Arduino. It can be used by students, artists, athletes, makers, and game & mobile developers who want to easily incorporate live heart-rate data into their projects. After a few months of testing a gaggle of techniques, we developed what we think is an innovative pulse sensor.
