Microduino: Arduino in your pocket, small, stackable, smart by Microduino Studio

Microduino: Arduino in your pocket, small, stackable, smart by Microduino Studio
A small sized board that packs a great punch! The Microduino series is a 100% Arduino compatible open source hardware, compatible with Arduino IDE development environment and existing Arduino sketches. Microduino is small. Its size is about a quarter (25.40mm X 27.94mm / 1.0inch X 1.1inch), much smaller than the original Arduino board. All Microduino boards adopt a uniform U-shape 27-pin standard pin-out (UPin-27). Microduino configures the pinout usage table well so as to avoid any pin usage conflict between different extension modules. We've benefitted from the open source community, and we're dedicated to giving back. Once you upload an Arduino compatible program onto the Microduino, you don't need Microduino-FT232R anymore. Also there are various Microduino pin-out compatible (UPin-27) extension modules available with low price (check details below), which decreases prototyping and production cost. You can reach us through Facebook, Google+, Twitter and Wiki for more Information. 1. 2. Related:  Controllers

$199, 4.2” computer is Intel’s first Raspberry Pi competitor With the Raspberry Pi, Arduino Due, and BeagleBone, the world is full of cheap, tiny computers that can be used by creative developers in everything from robots to space flight. One thing these platforms have in common is an ARM processor. Now they have some competition from Intel with its "MinnowBoard," a $199 computer in the form of a 4.2" x 4.2" board with an Intel Atom processor. The first 500 MinnowBoards rolled off the production line a few months ago and sold out within a week, Senior Embedded Systems Engineer David Anders of CircuitCo told Ars at the LinuxCon conference on Tuesday. CircuitCo, also the maker of the BeagleBoard and BeagleBone computers, made the MinnowBoard after being approached by Intel, which wanted to build an x86-based open hardware platform. A new MinnowBoard production run of 5,000 boards began this week. Open hardware lets users do what they want MinnowBoard can load any operating system that can run on the Intel Atom processor. Cool specs, bro

Controlled by Web - Web Relay Control - Ethernet Control | LINORtek New Next-Gen Nao Is Now the New Nao We haven't even managed to save up for one of the original Naos, and now Aldebaran Robotics has come out with an entirely new, entirely more awesome version. Sigh. Yay. So, what do you have to look forward to? Nao is skinnier. But wait! “On top of this new hardware version, we shall be delivering new software functionalities like smart torque control, a system to prevent limb/body collisions, an improved walking algorithm, and more. But wait! Want one? [ Aldebaran Robotics ] [ Nao Next Gen ]

Engineers build Raspberry Pi supercomputer (—Computational Engineers at the University of Southampton have built a supercomputer from 64 Raspberry Pi computers and Lego. The team, led by Professor Simon Cox, consisted of Richard Boardman, Andy Everett, Steven Johnston, Gereon Kaiping, Neil O'Brien, Mark Scott and Oz Parchment, along with Professor Cox's son James Cox (aged 6) who provided specialist support on Lego and system testing. Professor Cox comments: "As soon as we were able to source sufficient Raspberry Pi computers we wanted to see if it was possible to link them together into a supercomputer. We installed and built all of the necessary software on the Pi starting from a standard Debian Wheezy system image and we have published a guide so you can build your own supercomputer." The racking was built using Lego with a design developed by Simon and James, who has also been testing the Raspberry Pi by programming it using free computer programming software Python and Scratch over the summer.

SODAQ: a lego-like, plug-in, rapid prototyping board by SODAQ SODAQ brings you colder beer... Here's a little fridge/freezer stick-on we made with the SODAQ. You can get it too - we'll even put it together and pre-programme it if you don't want the fun of doing it yourself. There's a new reward where we do the work for you. And we're doing the same with the weather station SODAQ that's monitoring weather for whale sharks in the Indian Ocean. Prototyping should be rapid. SODAQ is a multi-feature microprocessor board that lets you connect sensors and devices to the internet, quickly and with no fuss. SOlar Data AcQuisition Getting data off a device is only half the story - it needs to go somewhere. It takes the Arduino prototyping concept, makes it simpler, and extends it. The board has built in sockets for Grove modules; a realtime clock; extended flash memory; USB on-board; and the Bee socket can take any WiFi/RF/XBee or other compatible plugin for communications instead of our GPRS module.

Tether Your Raspberry Pi to Your Smartphone QuickStack: Let's make it easy! by WestWork Technology Ltd. Still working on the site The QuickStack platform is an open-source hardware solution intended for a wide range of users, from first time users with little or no knowledge of embedded controllers to embedded engineers with years of experience. The QuickStack platform can be used for educational purposes or for creating a specific end-user product. QuickStack is a Platform somewhere between Adruino and PC104. It has the hardware quality, stack-ability, and integration of PC104, combined with the ease of use of Arduino. QuickStack is the only platform that integrates hardware and software completely. QuickStack consists of the following boards BrainBoards. These boards are connected by the QuickStack interconnect The QuickStack interconnect is the connection between BrainBoards and WorkerBoards. The QuickStack interconnect consists of the following: Main Lane. The motto of QuickStack is “Let’s make it easy”. When applications become more complex, software simplicity suffers. Case:

Raspberry Pi Wall Mounted Google Calendar Recently I purchased my first home. In the kitchen there was a small TV wall mounted however the TV itself was faulty so I was wondering, what should I do with this wall bracket since I didn’t really want a TV in the kitchen area. Then it dawned on me, instead of using a paper calendar with tiny little boxes to write things in I want my Google calendar on the wall. To tackle this instructable you should have a general understanding of home networking and computing, some linux experience wouldn’t go astray but is not really necessary. If you run into something you don't understand just remember google search is your friend. Equipment you will need Fargo: Control Electrical Devices Over the Internet by Linor Technology Inc. Gary S.
