User-generated content UGC may constitute only a portion of a website. For example, there are sites where the majority of content is prepared by administrators, but numerous ancillary submissions are made by the site's users, such as product reviews or comments, and UGC cannot be used commercially. UGC may be monitored by website administrators to avoid offensive content or language, copyright infringement issues, or simply to determine if the content posted is relevant to the site's general theme. There may be little or no barrier to the act of uploading user-generated content, such as memberships or fees. As a result, there are inordinate amounts of UGC that, in addition to creating a corporate asset,[1] may also contain data that can be regarded as a liability.[2][3] The University of Illinois concluded from its 2012 research that one-third of all UGC web reviews were fake, either with the purpose of boosting or denigrating a product.[4][5][6]

Thermoextensible 3D Printed Structures: Capabilities and Applications These simple studies explore four different unit cells that are tessellated in two dimensions to compose a sheet that can be easily 3D printed from PLA or cut from bulk sheet stock. General Guidelines and Properties: To maximize extensibility, unit cells and tessellation patterns should be selected to minimize the number of minimally-connected vertices in a unit cell. These factors can be varied directionally to create anisotropic properties, as in the unidirectional example above.

In this post, which follows the very popular 2012 edition, I collected 20 amazing Arduino projects of 2013 carefully selected after digging the web for days. All the projects in this list follow two simple criteria: They’ve been published/released between January and June 2013.They provide quite detailed info and instructions (the more the better). As you may have imagined reading the first criteria, this is only the first list of the year, a second one will be released in January 2014 collecting 20 more Arduino projects created in the second half of the year. 20. 1983 Microsoft “green-eyed” mouse

Axis Gear Release Date, Price and Specs It's hard to imagine a smart home without motorized window shades and self-adjusting blinds. Unfortunately it's hard to track down smart window treatments that aren't either extremely expensive, require a specially qualified installer or both. Startup company Axis says it has a solution, the $195 Axis Gear. Jessica Artiles Makes Purpose My mother's 52nd birthday is coming up and she LOVES pictures. Goal: Make her a frame that is easily mailed flat, and have her build it (she loves to feel like she's part of my education). Designing and Laser Cutting

Course on MIT App Inventor and Arduino I have made many tutorials for creating apps using MIT app inventor and connected the app with arduino to make things work, I often get email stating something went missing when they follow my tutorial, Here's a step by step tutorial on getting started with creating MIT app inventor and control things with arduino. To complete this tutorial you need a Bluetooth module HC-05 or HC-06 to connect with arduino and send or receive data to and from other Bluetooth device. Lets Make our first app to control an LED 1.Getting Started with Arduino and Android This video gives insight into MIT app inventor and what are the requirements need to get started with this video series, anyone watching this video can make their own app and control a LED connected to arduino without any prior experience, if they have components with that's more enough to make this tutorial.

Lights ! The Colourball By the amazing Heath Nash of South Africa.Multicolour flower and butterfly shapes attached to a handmade wire structure.Small: 400mm diam - 240 flowers, Medium: 500mm diam Large: 600mm diam, Extra large: 800mm diam The process: * Lots of bottles are found, sorted and collected. * They are washed very thoroughly (with bio-degradable detergent) and dried. * The handles and bases are carefully removed, and each bottle is splayed open into a semi-flat ‘sheet’. * As many flowers as possible are cut from each bottle * Now each flower has to be formed from a ‘flattish’ shape into a more 3-dimenional form - each petal is folded in half, and individual lines are creased into each (by hand). This forms the flower, and makes it more translucent where the lines are… adding to the detail and finish of the finished piece.

20 Arduino Projects Of 2012 While looking for ideas for new some new project I noticed there aren’t many lists of Arduino projects online so I decided to make one and in the last few days I’ve been carefully digging Reddit (r/Arduino) and the Arduino forum until I ended up with a list of 20 Arduino projects. All the projects in this list follow two simple criteria: They’ve been published/released in 2012.They provide quite detailed info (the more the better). The second criteria forced me to discard some amazing projects, but I didn’t want this post to be a simple showcase of cool Arduino projects, I wanted it to be an useful reference for Arduino users.
