Here’s an interesting one. FTDI Chip is using Kickstarter to fund an open source reference design for an Arduino UNO compatible board. The NerO is based on the company’s FT231X USB UART, and delivers 5V at 1A without overheating. It is described as an “Energy Efficient Arduino UNO Compatible Design”. “With NerO we wanted to take a whole new approach from ...
A new Arduino is joining the devboard lineup.
Interesting. It’s a development board, from Intel and Arduino, and it’s also a “learning board”, which means we are entering Raspberry Pi territory. Inside the States it will be sold as the Arduino 101 and for the rest of the world it will be the Genuino 101.
Think “theramin” and what comes to mind? The Doctor Who music? Or the original Star Trek theme? Or perhaps even Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys? Well, actually none of them uses a theremin, contrary to popular belief.
Arduino will soon have a standalone voice recognition and synthesiser which has ‘full sentence capability’ and a 2GB internal dictionary. It can be programmed to recognise almost any complete English sentence and build a dialogue system to change its vocabulary.
How would you give new life to everyday objects by “enchanting” them with the “power of the Internet of Things”? This was the question raised by the Enchanted Objects design competition, run by element14, The winner was Andy Clark, of the UK, who turned a miniature cottage into a Arduino Yun-based “smart home”, complete with real-time weather reports, colour-changing LED lights ...
We first write about the Arduino Zero a year ago, but the IoT prototyping board has now been actually released for sale, in the States at least. It’s priced at $49.90.
Check out the fruit from the Electronic Product Design Project Competition, run by City University of Hong Kong. It involves an Arduino Leonardo.
This is an interesting one, coming out of the Build maker community conference in San Francisco this week. The Arduino organisation has certified Windows on Arduino boards. Windows 10, to be precise.
A book review of Make: Sensors – Projects and Experiments to Measure the World with Arduino ad Raspberry Pi. Back in January I did a quick review of a book introducing budding Gadget Masters to working with sensors – Gadget Book: Make – Getting Started with Sensors.
