A few weeks ago I replaced the MagicMirror Raspberry’s power supply with a 2A version to improve stability. Unfortunately this new power supply tends to shutdown after a while. I expect this is caused by overheating due to the fact it was mounted directly on display. I’ve now moved the power supply to the bottom side of the mirror with some added spacing in between. 6domotica, iot, usb, power, magicmirror, internetofthings, raspberrypi, mirror, electronics, makers, smart, anotherhashtag Related:  Raspberrypi Arduino and kits

Smart Mirror by evancohen pfodApp V2™ and pfodDevices™ “A really great app but the underlying protocol is the real genius behind the app.Was able to develop a relatively sophisticated interface for an arduino project in a short time with straight forward code.Just about any embedded micro project can benefit from the interface that this app provides.”Google Play review posted by Greg Brandt Check out the new Arduino for Beginners, controlled by Android. Also see Single Click Control for turning devices on and off with one click. For programmers check out the new pfodDesignerV2 which lets you interactively designs pfodApp menus and then generate the Arduino sketch to serve the menu via bluetooth or Wifi/ethernet or SMS and handles the commands returned. Unleash the power of your Arduino or other micro project with pfodApp. Show people that you are not just playing with circuits but building useful devices, like a garage door remotes, dimmable room lighting, etc, that they can control from their Android mobile.

evancohen/smart-mirror: The fairest of them all Build your own robotic vacuum from scratch Build your own robotic vacuum from scratch Arduino Team — September 23rd, 2016 This dust buster-based robotic vacuum may or may not work as well as a Roomba. If you’re fascinated by the idea of a robotic vaccum cleaner to keep you from having to do certain chores, you could buy an iRobot, or you could make your own instead. The assembly sits on a wooden chassis, and as author B. In this project we will use the power of embedded systems and electronics to make our own robot which could help us in keeping our home or work place neat and tidy. You can find more detailed instructions, along with its code and a circuit diagram, on this CircuitDigest page.

Il Fabrique Un Miroir Connecté Avec Contrôle Vocal Sous Raspberry Pi (Video) Inspiré par le travail de Michael Teeuw et Hannah Mitt, Evan Cohen vient de réaliser Smart Mirror, un miroir connecté sous Raspberry Pi. Ce modèle intelligent est entièrement contrôlé par commande vocale. Il peut donner la météo, des informations, la localisation, mais surtout allumer ou éteindre la lumière de la chambre avec ajustement de la couleur. Regardez la démonstration vidéo, c’est plutôt convaincant.

Transformer une glace sans tain en miroir intelligent Il y a quelques mois, le développeur américain Evan Cohen postait une vidéo Youtube qui semblait sortie d’un film d’anticipation : monsieur se mirait tout en consultant ses notifications, son itinéraire et commandait une lumière d’ambiance à la voix. La frime. Le jeune homme disait travailler chez Microsoft et avoir réalisé ce miroir intelligent en moins de 20 heures, en programmant un Raspberry Pi. Autrement dit, ce n’était pas à la portée de tous. C’était sans compter sur les makers… Hannah Mittelstaedt, développeuse new-yorkaise, vient de créer une application pour tablette Androïd qui intègre sur fond noir la météo, la date et l’heure, la liste des courses et même la détection de l’humeur du jour (grâce à la caméra de la tablette) ! Du coup, pour réaliser son miroir intelligent, plus besoin de Raspberry Pi, ni de programmation… Quel matériel… un miroir sans tain une tablette Android un long câble USB du ruban adhésif double-face, du ruban adhésif large bande du papier cartonné noir

Arduino Simulators Lineup - Start Developing Without a Real Board Launched in 2005, the Arduino open hardware and software platform has grown to be very popular among hobbyists, educators, and professionals alike, gaining momentum especially in the robotics field. Backed by a massive online community, and with most development boards and hardware accessories available at very low prices, this platform is perhaps the best place to start in working with embedded devices. But what if you want to learn programming and do not own an Arduino board, or are overwhelmed by the selection of hardware out there? This is where simulation software comes in. Virtual Breadboard work area These products generally create a virtual environment in which not only can you write code but you can also create electronic circuits to test the behavior of your code. Some even accurately render your project in 3D and allow data export for professional fabrication of electronic circuits or elements.

Open your Garage Door Using Bluetooth LE (BLE) This was one of those projects I had kept in the backlog for too long, but finally got the time and drive to finish it up. The problem was very simple and common. In the building I share, we have a common garage door which can be open/closed through a (very expensive) radio remote control. Each apartment has a single remote control and any now or then one of them gets lost. Since everyone nowadays owns a smartphone and Bluetooth LE (BLE) has become standard, I decided to create an appliance with a relay that can trigger the garage opening. The relay can trigger either the motor directly or (in my case) “press” the button on a radio remote control. How to Build The system consist of 2 parts: hardware that is placed near the garage door, and an Android application installed on the smartphone. BOM (Bill of Materials) Build the Hardware Building is very straight forward. On your radio remote control, identify on the push button which two points need to be short circuited to trigger the radio.

ScratchX What is ScratchX? ScratchX is a platform that enables people to test experimental functionality built by developers for the visual programming language Scratch. What's the difference between Scratch and ScratchX? Scratch is a programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations. What are Scratch Extensions? Scratch extensions make it possible for Scratch to interface with external hardware and information outside of the Scratch website through new blocks. What is the difference between Experimental and Official Extensions? Experimental Extensions are extensions created for Scratch by the community; they are not managed or endorsed by Scratch in any way. Are Experimental Extensions safe? The Scratch Team has created ScratchX to enable people to create and test Experimental Extensions. How do I use ScratchX? There are three pathways into ScratchX. I made a cool project on ScratchX. What is a ScratchX URL? What is an .sbx file?

Raspberry Pi Zero AirPlay Speaker Looking for a new project to build around the Raspberry Pi Zero, I came across the pHAT DAC from Pimoroni. This little add-on board adds audio playback capabilities to the Pi Zero. Because the pHAT uses the GPIO pins, the USB OTG port remains available for a wifi dongle. Perfect for a small wireless speaker project! Hardware The project is fairly simple and requires following components: Raspberry Pi ZeropHAT DACMono 2.5W Class D AmplifierWiPi wifi dongleTwo 100 ohms resistorsSpeaker (4-8 ohms) The Raspberry Pi Zero is obviously the brains of the project and will run the Shairport software to wirelessly stream music to. I decided to make a mono speaker to keep things smaller. I know this isn’t the nicest way to convert stereo to mono (at all?) Software On the software side, nothing too difficult either. I started off from the latest Raspbian Jessie image which can be downloaded from the official Raspberry Pi website. sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade pHAT DAC ShairPort Reboot the Pi.

Smart Environmental Monitoring Description The goal is to build a small and easy to use device to monitor temperature, humidity, noise levels, luminosity and atmospheric pressure. The idea is to have multiple devices spread across the city to send environmental data to the AWS IoT platform for processing and analysis. Trigger alarms in case of dangerous measurements detectedFinding out the less polluted places in the city at a given time: parks, squares or any public outdoors places.Find out high polluted places to avoidFind out the measurements from the nearest monitoring device This device is intended to be used and managed by anyone with no other requirement than an internet connection and an available outdoor place at home: for example, balcony, a window, a roof, garden, etc. . . Just by plugging the device , it will automatically start sensing and sending data to the cloud. Software 1.- Java SE applications for the Raspberry to read the sensors and send data to the AWS platform in real time. 1.1 - Installing the OS
