I think that's a great way to keep dust off of the BBB :)

If you happen to have a Windows 8.1 tablet as I do, and you have VisualStudio 2013 then you might want to download and compile the sample app that resides on this github repo from the new Windows 8 SDK for our Sphero robot ... let the code spin!

I have a hard time thinking this will be popular unless Orbotix creates one themselves, especially with windows phone's limited audience

There are lots of projects I've been told to review but this one is awesome. There is Marco Schwartz who writes on http://openhomeautomation.net/ and he's running a project on Indiegogo in order to get funds for create a very specialized training course in order to get our home automated using RaspberryPi, BeagleboneBlack and Arduino. Best of all: will be opensource! 

If you have couple of bucks don't hesitate on sharing on this campaign because will be for a good cause. Here's the link. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/building-an-open-source-home-automation-system

Looking for inexpensive motors for testing and teaching we got this kit on RadioShack for 50 usd. Was perfect for our needs.

Where do you get your electronic stuff anyway?

Thanks +James Edwards for the heads-up. BTW for planes, quadcopters or more "specialized" motors, Hobbyking is my latest store.

Hello everyone,
I've seen that some progikes are posting about some Banana-Embedded. I've banned and removed the posts in order to keep this community for our beloved BBB.
Hope you are OK with this.

They keep coming. I've requested help from Google.

Today I received my new WindowsPhone Lumia 1020 and i'm happy to report that there are  two unofficial apps to control our beloved Sphero using this platform. Not as fancy as the official but it works.

I will try to reach Sphero in order to get some kind of "financial support" in order to bring all the official iOS apps to WindowsPhone 8.

Let me share with you this nice tutorial for video streaming with our beloved BBB... Thanks +Derek Molloy  for the video :-)
 
I have just released a new video in which I look at video streaming using the #beagleboneblack  using: RTP, UDP unicasting, and UDP multicasting, which allows one to many streaming. In all of these examples I used the VLC media player to display the video data. The final part of this video goes on to describe how you can build your own software implementation that can display the data using libvlc and the Qt framework. The advantage of doing this is that you can add your own data processing and controlling functionality into the video display. You could even develop code for capturing multiple streams simultaneously and processing the data -- for example, for stereo imaging. The full Page on this topic is available at my blog at: http://derekmolloy.ie/beaglebone/beaglebone-black-streaming-video-tutorial/

So reading my morning feeds just got to Lifehacker and saw an article that compares the Raspberry Pi, Arduino and our beloved Beaglebone Black in order to advise which is better fot a given project.

About the BBB this was told:
The BeagleBone is best suited for projects that might be a little too complicated for the Arduino, but don't need any complex graphics like the Raspberry Pi. Since it connects to the internet out of the box, it's a lot cheaper to use than an Arduino, and since it has a ton of ways to connect external sensors it's perfect for advanced projects that interface with the real world.

Do you agree with them?

Some of the best DIY projects use microcontrollers or cheap single board computers to automate awesome stuff. But Between the Arduino, the Raspberry Pi, and the BeagleBone, it's hard to figure out which is best for a project. Let's demystify the most popular boards and make the selection process a bit easier.

Just got my Sphero device few hours ago and we're so trilled about the possibilities. It will be awesome for the next version to add a camera (dunno how) onboard ... just a-la-quadcopter as we've been seen on other products.
