This is not like other line followers :) Puma developed a line follower with Arduino, multiple infrared sensors and encoders to help runners (and achieve their high speed). «It works by scanning lines on the track with its sensors, while wheel rotations are monitored via Arduino to keep track of its distance and speed. The bot also has LED lights on the back and dual GoPro cameras that allows runners to review their run and possibly even upload it to Youtube just to show off».

Yesterday Google showcased in its I/O conference a customized chip for machine learning that's currently running in its cloud. It is ASIC, not FPGA, but makes the case of the growing interest for custom chips.

«The result is called a Tensor Processing Unit (TPU), a custom ASIC we built specifically for machine learning — and tailored for TensorFlow. We’ve been running TPUs inside our data centers for more than a year, and have found them to deliver an order of magnitude better-optimized performance per watt for machine learning. This is roughly equivalent to fast-forwarding technology about seven years into the future (three generations of Moore’s Law)».

I just bought a new Pi Zero :) They are back in stock and with camera adaptor. Run, you fools!

#raspberrypi  
 
Raspberry Pi Zero now has a camera connector! It's available now from +Adafruit Industries +Pimoroni +The Pi Hut LTD, and your local branch of Micro Center.
When we launched Raspberry Pi Zero last November, it’s fair to say we were blindsided by the level of demand. We immediately sold every copy of MagPi issue 40 and every Zero in stock at our distributors; and every time a new batch of Zeros came through from the factory they’d sell out in minutes. To …

A BeagleBoard in a single chip. Very interesting option for designing custom boards (although not very cheap).

I just blogged about how to make a Bluetooth serial connection with Ubuntu and Processting to Arduino using a HC-06 device. In Spanish.

How a FPGA works.

#fpga  
 
La reconfiguración de las FPGAs se consigue asignando valores a sus bits de configuración

. Iniciamente están todos a 0, por lo que no hay conexiones establecidas y la FPGA está "en blanco". Al dar valores a sus bits de configuración, se establecen las conexiones y aparece nuestro circuito

The Barcelona Street Project #Sneakairs #WearableWednesday

Great project that will let you scoot around without having to constantly look at your phone for directions. From wired:

The system uses a vibration module, battery and a miniature Bluetooth Low Energy unit crammed onto board that is just 3 millimeters thick and fits into the sole of each shoe. Of course it pairs to any smartphone. The buzzes that tell you where to go come from a pedestrian navigator application that uses the Google Maps API. Like any navi app, simple fire it up, plan your itinerary, and follow the turn-by-turn directions it send to your kicks.

I don't know why the new Arduino boards tend to be so so expensive. I imagine they cannot compete with Chinese manufacturers, but anyway, cheaper is better if you want a popular revolution. This new educative board, designed in Brazil, is very simple and its name tells everything: "One Dollar Board". It has an open source license and works with the Arduino IDE.

The latest update to Raspbian http://flip.it/hSRh0
No exciting new hardware announcement to tie it to this time, but we’ve just released a new version of our Raspbian image with some (hopefully) useful features. Read on for all the details of what has changed… Bluetooth When the Pi 3 launched back in February, we’d not had time to do much in terms …

Wee, finally!! As a Kickstarter contributor, today I received an email with the firmware of MicroPython for the ESP8266. Cannot wait to test it!
