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

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.

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.

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.

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?

PIK3A: The Raspberry Pi 3 IKEA Retro Gaming Table | element14 Community Gaming is the perfect way to help newcomers to the Raspberry Pi to connect it with a recognisable lifestyle technology. It's the perfect stepping stone to bring people eye-to-eye with the Raspberry Pi; if it can play all those awesome, classic arcade games, it can also do so much more! And that's why gaming is often our go-to project when it's time to show people what the Pi is all about. But this time around, with the Raspberry Pi 3 now in the wild, we wanted to do something a little bit different, too. So here's how to make your own minimalist, contemporary interpretation of the classic coin-op cocktail cabinet that uses an IKEA coffee table and a Raspberry Pi 3. Meet the PIK3A Gaming Table! So here's the gist of this simple, but super-stylish project. It's an IKEA Lack coffee table with an LCD monitor cut into the top, arcade controls next to the monitor, and a Raspberry Pi 3 and accessories buried inside the table. Let's begin with an overview of the parts you'll need: Screen Mounting

But there’s no reason that the techie crowd can’t get in on this game: in fact, these are the folks that still have old Sega Genesis consoles buried somewhere in a closet because they might come up with something to do with it one day. All they need for this electronic waste is some “brains” to power their vision… The Raspberry Pi has served this purpose for numerous techie repurposers: the credit card-sized computer can fit neatly into just about any casing you choose (or create), and, with a little solder, can bring those old parts back to life in a new, creative configuration. 5 Projects for Transforming Electronic Waste with a Raspberry Pi 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Visuino Viduino is designed around the concept of software components. Each component represents ready to use functionality. Some of the components represent and are designed to control real hardware such as Sensor, Motor or Servo, others are representing pure software functionality such as signal generator, filter, mathematical function, or communication protocol. The components have connection points called "Pins", and the Pins can be connected with "Wires" sending data between the components. Each component can have one or more pins capable of sending and receiving different data types. Visuino also includes components for sending multiple data channels through the Serial Port, and the Visuino IDE has Scope and Visual Instruments that can display the multichannel data, allowing the Maker to monitor and display simultaneously multiple sensors or data points from the project. and Sourceforge:

FISHINO: Arduino becomes wireless Why “Fishino” ? The names comes to a joke made on April Fools’ Day (in Italian “Pesce d’Aprile“, and ‘Pesce‘, which sounds ‘pashe’ means Fish) made on an Arduino forum where we “presented” a new board named “Fishino Zero” which had revolutionary technical specs. The symbol, placed on board’s picture with a graphical editor, was the small fish which became the actual logo. The joke was quite successful, and the idea of building such a board soon appealed to us. The ‘UNO‘ part was then added to symbolize the first board of a series and to mark the complete compatibility to Arduino UNO boards, both in term of connectivity and size. Another Arduino clone? Not exactly. The integration of aforementioned periferals, in our opinion a must in IOT era, allows the creation of an huge set of appliances which can both be controlled via Internet and upload recorded data to it. Among the possibilities, all achievable without additional hardware are, for example: Technical specs Schematics Power supply Speed.

Compukit UK101 - Reg's Microcosm The Compukit UK101 was my first computer build, so happening on this site bought back memories of soldering all night long and actually getting it to work; all before going off to work that morning!I still have this machine in the loft – I wonder if it still works? I reproduce Johns pages here for posterity and just in case all his work on this resource disappears. The following pages was created by John Honniball. Copyright © 1998-2009. This is the screen display of a Compukit UK101. Practical Electronics published four articles describing the machine. The UK101 was very, very similar to the Ohio Scientific Superboard. Kits of parts for building the machine were available from Comp Shop Ltd of Station Road, New Barnet (North London). I hope these pages will become a Web resource for all those interested in the UK101. What is a UK101? The UK101 was a kit computer that had a VDU, a full alphanumeric keyboard, 4k bytes of memory and a built-in BASIC interpreter. John’s UK101 Story Origins Chips

Goldilocks Analogue | Search Results | feilipu Recap I’ve been working on the Goldilocks Analogue now for so long that its been the centerpiece of my coding evenings for the past 18 months. This is the first time that I’ve designed a piece of hardware, and I’ve managed to make many mistakes (or learnings) along the way, so I think that every […] Just over 6 months since the third iteration of the Goldilocks Analogue Prototyping was started, and now I’ve finished the design for a forth iteration. For the past year, I’ve been prototyping an Arduino clone, the Goldilocks Analogue, which incorporates advanced analogue output capabilities into the design of the original Goldilocks with ATmega1284p AVR MCU and uSD card cage. The Prototype 4 has now been designed, read here for the next iteration. Summary I’m still working (slowly) on a new development for my ATmega1284p platform, called Goldilocks. Recap I’ve been working (slowly) on a new development for my ATmega1284p platform, called Goldilocks.
