LagartoMAX - panstamp - Documentation wiki and source code Lagarto-MAX is a lagarto process which receives, resends and processes events transmitted from any lagarto server running on the same IP network. Lagarto-MAX is a key piece into the lagarto architecture since it's able to integrate real values belonging to different networks and present them to the user in a homogeneous way. Moreover, being user-programmable, Lagarto-MAX can take decisions based on time or network events. Lagarto-MAX, due to its nature, is one of those components that will be continuously growing in functionalities. The following is a list of features provided by this lagarto client:

Raspberry Pi Project Ideas: How I Built Call Mom Button Coming back from PyCon 2013, I was looking for interesting Raspberry Pi project ideas that would attract the attention of both non-programming students and those with more experience. I was averaging one Raspberry Python class each month at my hackerspace, MakerBar. I decided that the project should relate to Mother’s day and have something my students could take home or perhaps even give to their Mom as a nifty gift.
Teralab - Spot Welder Electronics This project is a very simple spot welder which will weld thin sheet metal. It will just about weld 0.38mm thick steel. Sheet steel half this thickness welds effortlessly. It can be used for assembling high vacuum components and making thermocouples. WARNING: Despite the simplicity of this design, it can be quite hazardous. Goggles must be worn when using it. Bandsaw vs CNC People keep suggesting that I should get into CNC. But I have always taken the position that CNC wouldn't save me any time for what I do. In fact, I was pretty sure I could cut out a gear faster on the bandsaw than most CNC hobby machines could. My friend Michael Grant already has a CNC machine, so I figured this would be an easy opportunity to put this to the test.
HomeVision Home Automation Controller Imagine controlling your entire home with a hand-held remote while watching TV. View a complete system interface on your TV screen. Or from a web browser anywhere in your home (or in the world). Change the temperature of the AC system. Or even reprogram the thermostat schedule. Top 49 Tools For The Internet of Things Everyone’s talking about the Internet of Things (IoT), but for a long time many weren’t quite sure how to define it. While the IoT is still taking shape, it’s already making incredible strides as a new frontier for the connected world in which people, devices, environments and virtual objects are all connected and capable of interaction. There’s a new wave of technology platforms targeting the need to bridge these sophisticated communications, as well as hardware manufacturers producing physical devices and sensors to power the IoT. Some leading technology innovators have gone so far as to write off the Internet of Things, noting that it’s more aptly described as the “Internet of Everything.” The IoT, or the IoE if you prefer, doesn’t just center on enterprise applications and Big Data analytics capitalizing on data from millions of devices. We’ve rounded up 49 of the most innovative tools and technologies serving the IoT.
The Only Raspberry Pi XBMC Tutorial You Will Ever Need In this updated guide, you will learn how to set up Raspberry Pi 3 as a complete Kodi (was XBMC) entertainment center solution with the right accessories. Over the past couple of years, I have had mixed feelings about Raspberry Pi as a Kodi based front-end device, because even after using all possible optimization tricks it simply was not responsive enough for my requirements. Fortunately, with the latest Raspberry Pi 3 this is not the case anymore.
pupil - Eye tracking with Python, OpenCV, Glumpy + Hardware prototype Pupil is an eye tracking hardware and software platform that started as a thesis project at MIT. Pupil is a project in active, community driven development. For noncommercial use, the hardware is accessible, hackable, and affordable. The software is open source and written in Python and C where speed is an issue. Our vision is to create a tool kit for a diverse group of people interested in learning about eye tracking and conducting their eye tracking projects. Headset
Gear template generator This free online gear template generator is designed for making scale accurate paper gear templates which you can glue onto wood and then cut out with a bandsaw. I recommend printing the gears with an ink jet printer. Even cheap ink jet printers print very scale accurate but Not all laser printers are accurate. This is the new version (as of September 2015). You can still access the old Flash based version Getting the printout to scale correctly
