Flutter Wireless - Arduino with 1km+ range on Kickstarter

Flutter Wireless - Arduino with 1km+ range on Kickstarter
Our goal is to provide the community with access to inexpensive and reliable wireless technology. That's why we built flutter. Based on Arduino, flutter is a wireless electronic development board with an ARM processor and integrated hardware encryption. Unlike many wifi-based products, flutter boards talk directly to each other - no routers or servers required. All you need to make a flutter network is two flutter boards and power. Whether you're preparing for Burning Man or just building a project for your next hiking trip, flutter has you covered.

Flutter: $20 Wireless Arduino with half mile (1km) range. by Flutter Wireless Flutter is a wireless electronics development platform based on Arduino. With over 3200ft (1km) of usable range, a powerful ARM processor, and integrated encryption, Flutter makes it easy for you to build projects that communicate across the house, across the neighborhood, and beyond. Whether you want to check the temperature of a beer-brewing setup, have your mailbox send you a text message when the mailman arrives, control a swarm of flying robots, or just turn on your lights with your phone, Flutter gives you the range, power, and flexibility to do it. Underwater wi-fi given test run to create 'deep-sea internet' 16 October 2013Last updated at 07:08 ET The team dropped two 40lb (18kg) sensors into a lake near Buffalo Researchers have tested an "underwater wi-fi" network in a lake in an attempt to make a "deep-sea internet". The team, from the University of Buffalo, New York, said the technology could help detect tsunamis, offering more reliable warning systems.

Journal of Neural Engineering Dominique M Durand et al 2014 J. Neural Eng. 11 020201 Neural engineers have made significant, if not remarkable, progress in interfacing with the nervous system in the last ten years. In particular, neuromodulation of the brain has generated significant therapeutic benefits [1–5]. EEG electrodes can be used to communicate with patients with locked-in syndrome [6].

WiSTiCK – Wireless Sensor Networks with Arduino Following my last post about IoT and WSN networks, i would like to introduce you a new tool for your first open source WSN. The idea came from where most of my ideas come, a personal need. But i also wanted to make it easily available to all of you so i decided to make it open source and enthusiast friendly. So, i am proudly introducing The WiStick. What is WiStick? The WiStick is a microcontroller board based on ATMEGA32u4, runs at 3.3V and 8MHz. Speak Freely Why is the Serval Mesh important, how does it work? Mobile phones normally can't be used when cellular networks fail, for example during a disaster. This means that millions of vulnerable people around the world are deprived of the ability to communicate, when they need it most. We have spent the past three years working with the New Zealand Red Cross to create a solution. We call it the Serval Mesh, and it is free software that allows smart-phones to communicate, even in the face of catastrophic failure of cellular networks. It works by using your phone's Wi-Fi to form impromptu networks consisting only of mobile phones.

The wireless network with a mile-wide range that the “internet of things” could be built on Robotics engineer Taylor Alexander needed to lift a nuclear cooling tower off its foundation using 19 high-strength steel cables, and the Android app that was supposed to accomplish it, for which he’d just paid a developer $20,000, was essentially worthless. Undaunted and on deadline—the tower needed a new foundation, and delays meant millions of dollars in losses—he re-wrote the app himself. That’s when he discovered just how hard it is to connect to sensors via the standard long-distance industrial wireless protocol, known as Zigbee. It took him months of hacking just to create a system that could send him a single number—which represented the strain on each of the cables—from the sensors he was using. Surely, he thought, there must be a better way.

Mind Reading (Neural Decoding) Goes Mainstream Surfdaddy Orca November 9, 2009 In the new movie, The Men Who Stare at Goats, reporter Bob Wilton confronts Special Forces operator Lyn Cassady, “I’ve heard that you’re a psychic spy.” Lyn later comments, “We’re Jedi. We don’t fight with our guns, we fight with our minds.” Mind reading – formerly the stuff of science fiction and crystal gazers – is rapidly becoming science fact.
