Somehow I missed this news about the gpiozero python library for the #RaspberryPi. Looks like a pretty easy way to control some basic devices without worrying about the nitty gritty details. Quick and easy.
Physical computing is one of the most engaging classroom activities, and it’s at the heart of most projects we see in the community. From flashing lights to IoT smart homes, the Pi’s GPIO pins make programming objects in the real world accessible to everybody. Some three years ago, Ben Croston created a Python library called RPi.GPIO, …

Tharsis is a great board game that just happens to be played on the computer and it's single player. It would make a great co-op physical game, but chances are you wouldn't be able to pick it up for $15 like you can right now on Steam.

As soon as I saw this I thought it should be a real co-op board game. I'm tempted to get it on steam.

Wow. This thing can do some serious damage for $40. I really liked the Odroid c1 so I will be looking to pick one of these up when they are available in March. 
We know well there were some rumors about the C2 on the internet. In fact, we started to develop the C2 board from last August. But we couldn't rush the process of C2 development because we needed to support the XU4/C1+ boards too. Finally, it is time to talk about our first 64bit version ODROID ...

Zheng Wang has built a self-driving car using a Raspberry Pi! OK, so it's a little on the small side. There's a neat demo to watch, and a very detailed write-up digging into all the maths behind the navigation.
Full disclosure: This car is perhaps not quite as big as the car you envisioned when you read the headline. Zheng Wang from Bridgwater State University has used a Raspberry Pi and some other hardware to modify a remote-controlled (RC) car to follow a track, detect, understand and respond to stop signs and traffic …

This blows my mind. Not only did this kid build a fairly decent BB8 from mostly household items, but he also is documenting it in great detail on Instructibles.
Today, I'm going to teach you how to build a working, life-sized, phone-controlled Starwars BB-8 droid! In this tutorial, we are only going to use household materials and a little Arduino circuitry.`My Christmas Gift For Dad: One of my dad's hobby is being a toy collector (Hot Toys, Enterbay & Etc..). He grew up watching movies from the 80's, including Starwars! He is a really huge Starwars fan. When the Sphero BB8 was announced, he wanted it so ...

Dr. Sampson gets 5 stars, but the opticians are awful. I tried to get progressive lenses here and after a few tries with obviously flawed lenses they said there was nothing else they could do and wouldn't refund my money. Take your prescription with you and get it filled elsewhere.
