Rolling Alarm Robot

Ever find yourself turning off your alarm clock without realizing it only to wake up an hour later and have to race out the door? In this build we are going to build a robot alarm clock that makes you work to turn it off! Not only that, but the robot will be able to sync to your Google Calender allowing for the alarm time to be adjusted using almost any device. Step 1: Introduction Today almost everyone use ...

Raspberry PI night vision goggles.

Very simple and cheap Infra-Red night vision googles, using a model A raspberry pi, a NOIR camera and Quanum FPV Goggles. For a while now I have been playing with Multicopters, and whilst I prefer to make the models myself and fly them properly with a transmitter, I couldn’t help being interested in First person View (FPV) so I got a camera and transmitter and a small monitor. My first attempt didn’t end we ...

Home Monitoring – Support A Loved One Remotely

We cannot be around the ones we love as much as we would wish. It is hard enough being there for your children but what about parents who might live hours away up the motorway or just across town. I know from my personal situation that a round trip across town takes an hour so how do you give enough attention to your elders when you do not have the time? The reality of this is that you cannot but with a bit ...

IoT Motion Controlled Servos

Secure and reliable real time data streaming is essential for IoT. I've seen plenty of demonstrations involving applications or "push button here, LED on over there" type hardware, but a friend and I wanted to make something that was more interactive... a way to almost feel the data stream as you manipulate it. So, we decided to build a motion controlled "thing" that mimics your hand movements and displays ...

DIY 5 Node Cluster of Raspberry Pi 3s

Building a Raspberry Pi 3 cluster for under £100 (£250 including five RPi3s) Inspired by all the great Raspberry Pi projects out there, I thought I’d try designing & building something simple myself. The launch of the Raspberry Pi 3 in March 2016 got me enthusiastic about building my very own cluster of Pi’s (a “bramble” ). Along the way I got to play with a 40W laser cutter, and spent more than a few h ...

Willy the Self-Driving Toy Car

 For our final project, we built a self-driving car that takes in inputs for a final destination and drives itself from its initial location to the final destination. The idea for this final project requires an LCD to display the location that the car is already at and allows a user to input coordinates for where he or she would like the car to drive itself to. By using a GPS receiver, the car can track its ...

Smallness über alles: Intel’s tiny, Haswell-based NUC desktop reviewed

A couple of months back, Intel sent us the latest version of its "Next Unit of Computing," or NUC for short. The NUC is sort of a side-project for Intel. It's a some-assembly-required desktop computer aimed at hobbyists who like playing with new tech and building their own PCs, but who also want something that's as small as possible. It gives up much of the expandability that we've come to associate with de ...

PiStation – A Raspberry Pi Emulation Console

I'm moving and will no longer have room for all my classic systems like my NES, SNES, Genesis, etc, so the first thing I think is that I can just play the games on emulators on my PC. But still, I love the experience of sitting back on the couch and playing with a controller, so where's the happy medium? The PiStation! Essentially, I am removing all the parts from a PlayStation 1 and replacing them with a R ...
