«A tiny open source spacecraft project [...] The Sprite is a tiny (3.5 by 3.5 centimeter) single-board spacecraft. It has a microcontroller, radio, and solar cells and is capable of carrying single-chip sensors, such as thermometers, magnetometers, gyroscopes, and accelerometers».

For the latest updates visit the project blog. For technical information on setting up ground stations visit the project wiki. The Big Picture: Our goal is to dramatically lower the cost of spaceflight, making it easy enough and affordable enough for anyone to explore space.

FPGAs to speed database queries :-O «At its simplest, the FPGAs are running in the database and when it sees SQL queries coming it, the software the team designed (and presented at Hot Chips two years ago related to DNNs) kicks into gear».

"It's bad enough we have to deal with an unknown brand in Genuino. But we will, to support you. Just don't make it worse. No one else cares about this. Not resellers, customers, or existing users. Only you. It might be worth thinking about that".

"This tutorial is written to explain how to set up a simple DHCP / TFTP server which will allow you to boot a Raspberry Pi 3 from the network. The tutorial assumes you have an existing home network, and want to use a Raspberry Pi for the server. You will need a second Pi 3 as a client to be booted".

This section contains documentation with technical information about the Raspberry Pi hardware, including official add-ons and the Pi itself.

This looks like a lot like bq's Zowi, with a Wall-E style. Very cute robot, but not sure it is open source :) EDIT: In this link theres info about its SDK. It can be programmed in Python and it has AI and Computer Vision. Among other things, it does face recognition. Very interesting gadget! https://developer.anki.com/en-us

«In an ode to these crafty cephalopods, researchers have created the first completely soft-bodied robot, dubbed the “octobot.” The palm-sized machine’s exterior is made of silicone». 3D printing was used to build it.

"The high-end offering in the new line of Teensys is the Teensy 3.6. The main CPU is the Freescale/NXP Kinetis K66 ARM Cortex-M4 running at 180 MHz. There’s 1 Megabyte of Flash on board, 256K of RAM, and 4K of EEPROM in this chip, 32 DMA channels, two CAN bus ports, and a USB High Speed (480 Mbit/sec) port".

For those who can read Spanish, a very good idea by Avelino Herrera: a "graphic card" for Neopixels implemented using a FPGA. Neopixels' protocol is very time-sensible, so if the microcontroller uses interruptions for other things, it's better to delegate the task of accessing Neopixels to another microcontroller (a FPGA in this case).

Gracias a su bajo costo, su relativo poco consumo y su facilidad de programación, los leds RGB basados en el chip WS2812 se están convirtiendo en estándar de facto para leds RGB. A lo largo de esta mini serie de posts se implementará sobre FPGA una interface que facilite el acceso a estos leds ...

The comment thread in the article points to a relevant feature of this chip: the microcontroller is an ARM chip, not like the one in the ESP8266, so the gcc-arm toolchain can be used.

An article in IEEE Spectrum magazine about the ESP8266: "The ESP has gone from a US $2 Wi-Fi chip (breakout boards cost around $10) to a fully featured 32-bit wireless microcontroller with a growing following. I wanted to run ColorChord on the ESP so that it could listen to sounds, determine color values, and then use them to control a string of WS2812B LEDs".
