Some people have a hard time getting a good night's sleep in a strange bed, but nobody wants to wake up exhausted when they're on traveling. I decided to see if I could remedy this issue with a few SparkFun parts and a fast 3D print.
Once upon a time it was monsters hidden in the barcodes of everyday items, but now there are electronic components stuck inside. Using the RedBoard Artemis, Barcode Scanner Breakout and Qwiic Micro OLED Display, we can unlock them for a fun game.
Once Rob and Avra receive a text with GPS coordinates, who will get to the location fastest? They find out using trains, planes, bikes, blades, and of course the new SparkFun LTE GNSS Breakout with SARA-R5.
How I made a simple linear motion system using MicroMod, Qwiic breakouts, and 3D printed parts.
Use the MicroMod Input and Display Carrier Board, paired with a ESP32 Processor Board, to stay on top of your meetings and email.
Learn about Jaime Carrejo's installation "Waiting," and how we went about building a kinetic installation art piece.
Trading cards are all the rage right now and we made a quick project on how best to display your favorites.
Check out this DIY, TinyML-based electrocardiogram!
See the full prototyping process of building a wireless system for business applications from the experts at Tincubate!
Join us as we explore and “detect” the possibilities of LiDAR with Elektor.
In The Princess Bride, Westley explains to Buttercup that the name is the important thing for inspiring the necessary fear. Well, the creepy head doesn’t need any help in that department, but we decided to give it a name anyway.
Porting the DIY cabin temperature monitoring system to MicroMod
Last week we released a great little haptic driver from Dialog Semiconductors. This week I show you how fast and simple it is to build into a potentially job-saving project.
With a strip of solderable UV LED tape, a cheap poster frame, some scrap wood and a few Qwiic-enabled breakouts, I built this simple tabletop UV lightbox with a countdown exposure timer.
A few weeks ago I shared some research on absolute positioning without GPS. Since then I’ve continued digging into the subject, found a few more sources, and tried a few more things.
For this year's Open Source Hardware Association Summit, there was no venue. Instead, it was a completely virtual affair, allowing all of us to hear a host of amazing speakers from the comfort of our own homes.
Our attempt to fly a drone with some of the same technology as NASA and none of the international scrutiny.
Recently we introduced four new PIR boards that use Panasonic’s new EKM-series PIR sensor, and I was excited to put one of them into a build.
GNSS tracking has improved greatly over the past decade, but what about movement and position tracking without satellites? Is it even possible?
Sprint Academy is working to bring detailed data to sprint training using Arduino.
