Trying to catch up on the gajillion awesome videos from Google I/O? Well... just pushed an updated for "Video Speed Controller" extension: bit.ly/1l8UlFq - lots of improvements and bugfixes, give it a try!

p.s. In related news, it recently crossed 100K installs! \o/

A tool for making music through body movement @Raspberry_Pi#piday #raspberrypi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/05/20/a-tool-for-making-music-through-body-movement-raspberry_pi-piday-raspberrypi/

Impressive project from student Calvin Cherry! Check out the write-up from TheCapitalTimes, via RaspberryPiPod.

“It translates your body movements into music,” said Cherry, a University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate student, as he does sort of a two-step in the living room of his Vilas-neighborhood apartment. Cherry has small electronic sensors Velcro-ed onto his wrists and ankles. As he moves about, the synthesized rock track playing on a loop over the speakers changes.

Raspberry Pi's Matt Richardson saw this video at Google I/O yesterday, and it's got us all excited. It's a demo of a Raspberry Pi robot (Dexter Industries' GoPiGo) working with Google’s Cloud Vision API, and it has TONS of potential for your projects.

NEW PRODUCT - Adafruit Ultimate GPS FeatherWing
https://www.adafruit.com/product/3133

Give your Feather a sense of place, with an Ultimate GPS FeatherWing. In 2013 we designed the Ultimate GPS module to satisfy all your GPS desires - and now we have brought its power and versatility plus more to our Feather series with the Adafruit Ultimate GPS FeatherWing! This FeatherWing plugs right into your Feather board and gives it a precise, sensitive, and low power GPS module for location identifcation anywhere in the world. As a bonus, the GPS can also keep track of time once it is synced with the satellites.

We added some extra goodies to make this GPS FeatherWing better than a breakout: a FET-driven ENABLE pin so you can turn off the module using any microcontroller pin for low power use, a CR1220 coin cell holder to keep the RTC running and allow warm starts and a tiny bright red LED. The LED blinks at about 1Hz while it's searching for satellites and blinks once every 15 seconds when a fix is found to conserve power.

Comes as a fully assembled FeatherWing with GPS module and a coin cell holder. However, the 12mm coin cell is not included - it isn't required but if you would like a battery backup, a CR1220 coin battery must be purchased seperately. We also toss in some header so you can solder it in and plug into your Feather .

In stock and shipping now!

Correlated Magnetics Polymaget - designed and printed magnets

You've probably never seen magnets like these.

Correlated Magnetics is a company that has come up with a way to "print" magnets they call polymagnets, with a very intricate distribution of north and south poles.

Very strong magnets can be created by placing many north and south poles on the same face. Normally, magnets have a north pole on one side and south on the other, with the field going around the magnet. Placing many north and south poles on the same surface, creates many small magnetic fields which in total, create a much stronger magnet.

The precise distribution of north and south poles allows the creation of magnets that have characteristics that you might not have thought possible. Such as a magnet that attracts at one distance and repels at another.

Tensor Processing Units (TPUs)
I'm very excited that we can finally discuss this in public. Today at Google I/O +Sundar Pichai revealed the TPU (Tensor Processing Unit), a custom ASIC that Google has designed and built specifically for machine learning applications. We've had TPUs deployed in Google datacenters for more than a year, and they are an order of magnitude faster and more power efficient per operation than other computational solutions for the kinds of models we are deploying to improve our products. This computational speed allows us to use larger, more powerful machine learned models, expressed and seemlessly deployed using TensorFlow (tensorflow.org) into our products, and to deliver the excellent results from those models in less time.

TPUs are used on every Google Search to power RankBrain (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RankBrain), they were a key secret ingredient in the recent AlphaGo match against Lee Sedol, they are used for speech and image recognition, and they are powering a growing list of other smart products and features.

+Norm Jouppi and the rest of the team that developed this ASIC did a fabulous job, and it's great to see it discussed in public!

#Disney  is working on some simple, innovative stuff here with #RFID  .
Researchers at Disney and Carnegie Mellon University have been toying around with radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, and we mean that in the literal sense. RFID tags are typically used for high tech inventory management in a variety of industries, but researchers concocted a way to make RFID technology feasible for interactive games
