Boarding my flight to USA to demo the "Super-Computer-On-Legs" robot I just built. It's pretty amazing that this whole robot including the onboard computer doing realtime computer vision cost just $1000!

Recently they were the first company to earn $1 Billion by selling & supporting free open-source platforms, and now they're worth $2 Billion!

If you really like ESP8266 for IoT / Wifi but would rather use an industry standard ARM Cortex-M instead of the custom Espressif CPU, this board is an option.
PADI IoT Stamp module powered by Realtek RTL8710AF ARM Cortex M3 WiFi SoC is a potential competitor to Espressif ESP8266 modules. Pine64, the manufacturer of the module, sent me their kit with a $2 IoT stamp, a breakout board, a USB to TTL debug board and a J-Link debug board.

Joel Holdsworth, the original author of both PulseView and the fx2lafw firmware, has started a YouTube channel. His first video is a very thorough overview on how to get started with sigrok. He's got great plans for future videos. Highly recommended.

A nice summary of how to find Serial ports in existing equipment, such as to debug or repair or hack a device that you don't have schematics for. 
 
Courtesy of +Stephen Arnold 
Given the name of this blog and the number of requests that I've had, I think it's high time we discussed serial ports; specifically, serial ports in embedded systems. My goal here is to describe the techniques that I've found effective in identifying and reverse engineering embedded serial ...

In recent years there have been various new affordable 2D LIDARs or 3D depth cameras with upto 5m range as well as a new tiny 2m LIDAR-on-chip on the market. But many applications need more than 5m range, and those LIDARs have all cost many thousands of dollars. Well the new Scanse Sweep has 40m range for just a few hundred dollars finished KickStarter funding and will supposedly start shipping in Jan 2017!
Scanse develops Sweep: a scanning LiDAR sensor designed to bring powerful 360 degree sensing capabilities to everyone for an affordable price.

2 new Raspberry Pi Compute Modules: an RPi3 based module with onboard eMMC flash storage, and a similar cheaper module without the eMMC.
 
Not one but two compute modules have been released today! Great job +Raspberry Pi Foundation!
Way back in April of 2014 we launched the original Compute Module (CM1) which was based around the BCM2835 processor of the original Raspberry Pi. CM1 was a great success and we’ve seen a lot of uptake from various markets, particularly in IoT and home and factory automation. Not to be outdone by its bigger Raspberry …

(Crowd-funding) A $169 fully open-source FPGA development board that includes 1080p HDMI video capture, camera capture, 256MB frame buffer, HDMI output, Bluetooth, and an Android app! It seems really useful for video processing. I'm tempted to buy one, even though I don't have the time or money to use this anytime soon!
RggBer is the Swiss Army Knife of digital video capture and processing.

Nice work +Stephen Haesung Lee on your IBM Watson cloud recognition robot with web interface "http://www.instructables.com/id/IBM-Watson-Cloud-Robot/". And also your BBQ controller "http://www.instructables.com/id/PID-Control-for-BBQ-Bot/"
MotivationI work as a robotics teacher in Sydney. I want to introduce my IBM Watson Cloud Robot to my students in my RobotClass next month. So, I'm so excited.IntroductionThe IBM Watson Cloud Robot can recognize a human face, voice, and text like a human. The robot clearly recognized the celebrity (Elon Musk) and who he was. Also, it recognized my voice & any text. (YouTube)This instructable will cover the basic steps that you need to follow to g...

A very small embedded Linux board aimed at computer vision projects. The software side is basically a wrapper around OpenCV but it also includes some nice features like a builtin 1.3 MegaPixel camera supporting120 FPS (at 88x72 resolution) and manual camera contols, supports easy connection to an Arduino, and the output of the device can be used easily as a USB webcam on another computer, making it easy for initial development as well as to stream or record processed video or perform some vision procesing on the device and some on a PC.
Open-source quad-core camera effortlessly adds powerful machine vision to all your PC/Arduino/Raspberry Pi projects

A good summary of current Deep Learning techniques, from one of the pioneers of the current Deep Learning revolution
 
This talk is so full of wisdom. Lots of great high level advice about how to build deep learning systems and run an ML organisation.
