To celebrate Halloween, here is a very cool project, which is a very ancient and known game: Tetris. It was embedded in a pumpkin, being controlled by a stem. The video above illustrates this well.
"One of my habits is to write down all the crazy, fleeting ideas I have, then go back to review later rather than…Continue

This news is about a very interesting project concerning the development: a haunted mirror. It was created by Alan Parekeh, the circuit is supplied by an IOIO board and uses an RGB matrix display to create images.
An infra-red sensor, identifies when someone comes close and the image is projected on the display. Alan scored the back of a comum mirror to allow the LEDs to shine…Continue

DYSKOGRAPH is a graphic disc reader. Each disc is created by visitors of the project, who use felt tip pens, provided for this use. The mechanism reads the disc, translating the drawing to a musical sequence.
This project is above all, a tool, which allows the creation of musical sequences in an intuitive way.…Continue

This is a project from http://www.doityourselfgadgets.com, which is an automatic turret. We have posted that news because it is a very interesting and funny proposal for development. It works in 7.2 V, can shoot a lot in a little time, and its most important component is a gear box, taken from a G36 Rifle. The plan was to cover some area in front of the turret…Continue
This tutorial will show a simple way to control an RGB LED with the Arduino. An RGB is a LED which reproduces three colors: red, green and blue. It has four terminals, one for each color and the GND. It is possible to illuminate each one of the colors with different…Continue

A Belgian startup called circuit.io developed a PCB and schematic editor for web browsers. Now you can route your circuits, create and share modules online, without any additional software. Also, the company will provide a PCB printing service. They plan to be the github for electronic projects, with forking and extensive components reuse.
From Raspberry Pi official blog:
One of the most common suggestions we’ve heard since launch is that we should produce a more expensive “Model C” version of Raspberry Pi with extra RAM. This would be useful for people who want to use the Pi as a general-purpose computer, with multiple large applications running concurrently, and would enable some interesting embedded use cases (particularly using Java) which are slightly too heavyweight to fit comfortably in…

I’ve had the good fortune of finding projects outside of school that motivate me to learn. While in school I noticed that this was lacking in other people and in turn made school feel much harder for them. I have a lot of complaints about the higher education system, and I decided it’s time to try and make some improvements.
Enter ‘The First Lecture’, a simple experiment to see if it is possible to dramatically improve students lives (and…
