As many of you already know, Minibloq and Multiplo are brother projects. We have been working a lot on Multiplo in the last months, and there is a new website, where we have released a lot of open source mechanical parts 2 weeks ago. These parts has been designed with one important goal: to be fablab compatible. This means that every Multiplo mechanical part can be manufactured using common tools found in the growing community of fablabs and hackerspaces, such as laser cutters, 3D printers and small CNC machines. So we designed them carefully, making them tolerant to differences in the materials, such as variations in the thickness, weight, etc.. There are more parts designed, and we will try to publish them soon.

Inc. - Digital Design Engineer's Source The chipKIT™ Max32™ is based on the popular Arduino™ open source hardware prototyping platform but adds the performance of the Microchip PIC32 microcontroller. The Max32 is the same form factor as the Arduino Mega board and is compatible with many Arduino™ shields as well as larger shields for use with the Mega boards. It features a USB serial port interface for connection to the IDE and can be powered via USB or an external power supply. Makeblock Academy Makeblock Orion is an easy-to-use mainboard based on Arduino Uno with improvements for education. It provides eight RJ25 ports to connect to all the other Me series modules with color-labels, can save you from horrible pin-wiring and help you focus on inventor amazing projects. Makeblock Orion supports most of programming software (Arduino / Scratch / ), and we offer the customized graphical programming software (Scratch for Robot / Makeblock App).

PIC32-PINGUINO-MICRO ARDUINO MAPLE LIKE BOARD WITH USB OTG Open Source Hardware Low cost 32 bit PINGUINO MAPLE ARDUINO like development board ARDUINO like board with PIC32MX440F256H with USB OTG PIC32MX440F256H 80 Mhz microcontroller 256KB Flash 32KB RAM MicroSD card for data logging UEXT connector which allows many existing modules like RF, ZIGBEE, GSM, GPS to be connected Two LEDs One BUTTON RESET button A Mini USB connector is used, which is common and used in most cell phones, so you do not have to buy other cables All PIC ports available on 0.1" connectors miniICSP connector 0.05"step. If you do not want to use Pinguino IDE and you want to program this board with a PIC-ICD2-POCKET or PIC-KIT3, you should use also a PIC-ICSP converter board, the same applies for Microchip programmers.

ArcBotics - Moving the Robot Introduction So you’ve unpacked your friend Sparki and now you’re getting to know more about the robot and how Sparki works. The first thing to start playing with are the motors. Robots are pretty cool. Robots that move around and can roll along beside you while you go for a walk are even cooler! Let’s talk about how to get Sparki moving. JavaScript Best Practices Part 1 Javascript Best Practices, Part 1 Make it Understandable Choose easy to understand and short names for variables and functions.

Whether you are a beginner in the robotics programming, electronics or you are a pro, a good robot kit always adds an extra test in your skills of making something different. Building a robot by programming with an Arduino starter kit always creates an awesome learning and designing experience! If you are an advanced tinkerer in Arduino programming and robotics, then this list will provide you a more span of making innovative designs. But if you are a student or beginner in the field, then you should start with the kits mentioned here.

JavaScript Best Practices Part 2 Optimize Loops Loops can get terribly slow in JavaScript. Most of the time it’s because you’re doing things in them that don’t make sense. Don’t make JavaScript read the length of an array at every iteration of a for loop. Arduino New Version Pro Mini 328 Kit - Description : Arduino New Version Pro Mini Kit is an Arduino-compatible development platform aimed at teaching the basics of Arduino programming as efficiently as possible. It requires zero assembly, wiring, or soldering, so you can jump right into programming the Arduino New Version Pro Mini Kit to control LEDs, buzzers, light sensors, and more. There's even a small prototyping space so you can add your own parts!

My Adventures with Raspberry Pi Projects Pete Sneekes on Flickr Open source hardware geared towards artists, hobbyists, designers, and students, is a viable and far less expensive alternative to build your own computers. A Raspberry Pi is a hand-sized computer you can use to do all sorts of projects. Plus you can buy colorful cases, even build a case from Legos. This article starts with a video I watched that finally inspired me to buy a Pi and figure out what makes it so fun and interesting. Training videos, books & free excerpts - Crane Softwrights Ltd. The materials found in the products listed below are the basis of hands-on training delivered publicly and privately by licensees around the world. Special note regarding the hyperlinked PDF files: The 1-up versions of the books are bookmarked, extensively indexed and hyperlinked. Every page has hyperlinks into the index at the bottom center.
