"Tele-Present Water" Waves From Faraway

Hypnotic installation from David Bowen representing *real* waves. […] Tele-Present Water installation draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. Wave data is collected in real-time from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data buoy station 46075 Shumagin Islands Alaska. The wave intensity and frequency is scaled and transferred […]

Yahoo Farm From RoboFun Guys (at Yahoo Open Hack 2011)

[Viorel] wrote me about an interesting project he and his friends from Robofun developed during the 2011 Yahoo Open Hack in Bucharest, and won the Hacker’s Choice Award. The diorama becomes a physical representation of tour friends’ behaviours. If you’re a both nature lover and a geek, you would certainly love the Yahoo Farm. The […]

Samsa II, The Hexapod

[pabloxid] shared an Hexapod project on the forum based on an Arduino MEGA 1280 and 18 Dynamixel AX-12 motors: SAMSA is based on the Wiring board, with an ATmega128 microcontroller, and SAMSA II on the Arduino Mega, with an ATmega1280. Both are pretty similar, tough the ATmega1280 has 8 KB SRAM, twice the ATmega128. For […]

Cheap Thermocam Around 100$

[Max] forwarded me an impressive project about a DIY Themal Camera. The overall cost for building it is around 104$, compairing to professional products ranging from from 2000$ to 30.000$. after some time of research I want to present my latest project called “Cheap-Thermocam”. It enables to create thermal images of houses, electrical devices or […]

Kinect Controlled Delta-Robot

Everybody’s amazed about the incredible things done with Kinect and Processing + Arduino. Tutorial need! This is a project in development for the module “Digital Ecologies”, at the Bartlett’s Adaptive Architecture and Computation MSc. – University College London A Delta-Robot is controlled by a Kinect through Processing and Arduino. The movements of the performer control […]

Seg..Stick – A Stick-Controlled, Arduino-Based Segway

[scolton] made a nice self-balaced vehicle based on two DeWalt cordless drills and an Arduino Nano: Segstick is a self-balancing…well, literally some kind of broomstick I found in the MITERS workshop. It is powered direct by two DeWalt cordless drills chucked to two 6″ wheels. The controller is an Arduino. Additional supporting devices include an Inertial […]
