VoLumen — The Most Advanced Persistence of Vision Display Yet

Posted by GarageLab on April 23, 2014 at 9:53am 0 Comments

We’re just blown away by this new project by [Maximilian Mali] and [Sebastian Haushofer]. It’s a stacked Persistance of Vision display, with 9 layers — effectively creating a Volumetric 3D POV Display.

He’s been designing these Volumetric 3D displays for about 3 years now, with the first iteration called the viSio, capable of 40 fps 3D video without the need for any 3D glasses.

The new and improved VoLumen features 34 micro-controllers, each with 512MB flash memory for storing animation data. In total there are 1024 high power RGB LEDs, which draw a whopping 200W at full load, making it bright, crisp and visible even in direct sunlight. It’s an incredible project that [Maximilian] started when he was only 16 years…

MotherBone™PiOne™ is a peripheral motherboard for BeagleBone Black & Raspberry Pi providing safe I/O expansion for Linux control systems

Posted by Amy Ciesielka on April 22, 2014 at 10:19am 0 Comments

You may have seen the press release today regarding

Oregon-based Tech Company, APlus Mobile, Announces Launch of the MotherBone™PiOne™ Via Kickstarter

at http://yhoo.it/1pouYRI

MotherBone™PiOne™ is an all-in-one 3.5" peripheral voltage isolating motherboard for the BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi Model B computers that expands and isolates all of the unused default pins of the BeagleBone Black internal resources.  In addition, MotherBone™PiOne™ creates two different on-board communication links between Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black for advanced control functions allowing both modules to run individually or simultaneously in the real world. 

You can find the Kickstarter campaign here: …

Real-life Spider-Man webshooter uses a coil gun instead of web fluid

Posted by GarageLab on April 17, 2014 at 1:18pm 0 Comments

In honor of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opening tomorrow in Germany (among other places), German laser weapons hobbyist Patrick Priebe has just filled us in on his latest creation – it's a Spider-Man-inspired electromagnetic webshooter, that actually fires a harpoon-tipped length of fishing line into styrofoam targets.

Just like Spider-Man's "real" webshooter, this one is worn on the wrist, and fired by pressing on a button (one of three, actually) located on a plate under the glove material, on the user's palm. Unlike the original, however, this one also features an aiming laser and LEDs to indicate its operational status.

The brass-tipped mini-harpoon is shot from a tiny coil gun, the capacitor of which is charged by…

‘Eye Spy’, A Drone’s Eye View of Sydney, Australia

Posted by GarageLab on April 15, 2014 at 6:18am 0 Comments

“Eye Spy” is a series of short films created by production companies Ambience and Cavort that examine the lighting and architecture of various cities via ariel footage shot using a drone, including, most recently, a tour of Sydney, Australia. Past videos from the series include New York City and San Diego, with future episodes taking to skies above Melbourne, Chicago, Belgrade and Edinburgh.

A Radio-Controlled X-Wing From ‘Star Wars’ Made Out of PVC Pipe

Posted by GarageLab on April 11, 2014 at 1:07pm 0 Comments

Designer Rodger Cleye made a five-foot-long radio-controlled X-wing starfighter from Star Wars out of what is mostly PVC pipe and decorative tape. The model uses three 850W motors attached to 12″ propellers to achieve flight.

Create Your Own J.A.R.V.I.S. Using Jasper

Posted by GarageLab on April 9, 2014 at 6:37am 0 Comments

Tony Stark’s J.A.R.V.I.S. needs no introduction. With [Shubhro's] and [Charlie's] recent release of Jasper, an always on voice-controlled development platform for the Raspberry Pi, you too can start making your own J.A.R.V.I.S..

Both [Shubhro] and [Charlie] are undergraduate students at Princeton University, and decided to make their voice-controlled project open-source (code is available on GitHub). Jasper is build on inexpensive off-the-shelf hardware, making it very simple to get started. All you really need is an internet connected Raspberry Pi with a microphone and speaker. Simply install Jasper, and get started using the built in functionality that allows you to…

Innovative Dad Pulls Son’s Baby Tooth Using Flying Drone

Posted by GarageLab on April 8, 2014 at 1:50pm 0 Comments

Apparently the “slamming door” method was just too boring for Malcolm Swan and his brave son, Adam. Instead, the pair removed Adam’s baby tooth the good old fashioned way—by tying it to a DJI Phantom Quadcopter and then letting the drone rip. Sadly, Adam’s tooth was never recovered, but I think the Tooth Fairy will still pay up.

Festo's BionicKangaroo gets the hop on energy-efficiency

Posted by GarageLab on April 7, 2014 at 6:56am 0 Comments

The BionicKangaroo features pneumatic actuators that provide the jumping power and at the same time act as shock absorbers on landing. The necessary compressed air is supplied either from a small compressor or from a high pressure storage device on board. Electric motors are used for maintaining balance and controlling the kangaroo’s position with high accuracy, e.g. optimizing the tail and hip movements. All electric components rely on energy from rechargeable lithium polymer batteries.

Using a 3D Printer to Draw Tattoos: InkD

Posted by GarageLab on April 4, 2014 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

 

It’s one thing to allow a professional tattoo artist to ink your arm. It’s another thing altogether to allow a 3D printer to do it. But that’s exactly what a team of designers in Paris recently did.
By hacking together a custom tattoo gun attachment for a MakerBot 3D printer, they were able to draw a computer-generated tattoo on a man’s arm. As you can see in the video below, the tattoo is very rudimentary (a simple circle), but I’m assuming that’s because it would be pretty difficult to compensate for small movements in the recipient’s arm like a human tattoo artist can do.

Dispensing Solder Paste With A 3D Printer

Posted by GarageLab on April 3, 2014 at 5:53am 0 Comments

There’s a strange middle ground in PCB production when it comes to making a few boards. Dispensing solder paste onto one board is easy enough with a syringe or toothpick, but when pasting up even a handful of boards, this method gets tiresome. Solder paste stencils speed up the process when you’re doing dozens or hundreds of boards, but making a stencil for just a few boards is a waste. The solution for this strange middle ground is, of course, to retrofit a 3D printer to dispense solder paste.

This project was a collaboration between [Jake] and [hzeller] to transform KiCAD files to G Code for dispensing solder paste directly onto a board. The machine they used was a Type A Machines printer with a solder paste dispenser in…
