Apple 9-pin mouse to USB adapter built on the #Adafruit Trinket. 
Connect a 9-pin Apple II or early Macintosh mouse to a modern computer with USB. This adapter will connect any 9-pin Apple mouse to your modern computer via USB. Built on the Adafruit Trinket Pro, it turns any pre-ADB Apple mouse into a standard USB mouse compatible with Mac, PC or Linux, with no drivers to install. Apple mouse models this is compatible with include: M0100 A2M2050 A2M4015 A2M2070 The firmware on the board includes speed-adaptiv...

These #Smart #gloves turn #sign #language into #text and #speech via +Atmel 

Sign language has always been the communication method of choice for the the hearing-impaired, it’s something that not everyone can use. That barrier may now be a thing of the past.

http://blog.atmel.com/2016/04/14/these-smart-gloves-turn-sign-language-into-text-and-speech/
SignAloud will bridge the communication gap between native speakers of American Sign Language and the rest of the world.

The world hottest WiFi IoT Chip, ESP8266. I know you feel hard(and suck...but don't let them know) when using SDK to program, so we decided to insert the Lua(an script language with easy syntax) to the ESP8266. Through NodeMcu, you can build up IoT(Internet of Things) BY YOUR OWN HAND. Much easier, more fun~

A ‘Battery-Free Computer’ Powered by Radio Waves #RFID
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/04/29/a-battery-free-computer-powered-by-radio-waves-rfid/

Engineered with the 16-bit MSP430 microcontroller, the ‘WISP’ (Wireless Identification and Sensing Platform) is a battery-less circuit that is powered by converting harvested radio waves into electricity. A project of the Sensor Systems Laboratory at the University of Washington, you can find documentation and publications about WISP here at the UW website.

But what if you could leave the battery out of the equation entirely? That’s just what the University of Washington’s Sensor Lab has done. Researchers there created the WISP, or Wireless Identification and Sensing Platform: a combination sensor and computing chip that doesn’t need a battery or a wired power source to operate. Instead, it sucks in radio waves emitted from a standard, off-the-shelf RFID reader—the same technology that retail shops use to deter shoplifters—and converts them into electricity.

SUPEROLED8 is an ATmega32U4 dev board with an OLED and a 5-way navigation button. 

#Atmel   #ATmega32U4   #8bit   #MCU   #HackadayPrize  
You know all of those used ATmega32U4s you have laying around the workbench? That’s how this idea started - I designed a breakout board to test them. The designed for the SUPEROLED8 is based on my tool, the OLED Backpack for the USB Tester (a USB power measurement device) since it’s a proven design. Completely open source, this little board gives a hardware starting point with plenty of options. From a simple breakout board, it has turned int...

NEW TUTORIAL: 7 Segment Display Internet Clock
https://learn.adafruit.com/7-segment-display-internet-clock

When I saw these 7 segment displays with FeatherWing backpacks on Ask an Engineer, I got really excited. I love clocks! I have the original Ice Tube clock from Adafruit, plus the PiGlow daughter card binary clock, plus my collection of watches (including a programmable TI digital watch that I've re-programmed to display Martian Standard Time and the current Sol). So the thought of having a mobile clock with a colored display made me immediately run to the shop and buy three colors (and a Circuit Playground, but that's for another tutorial).

This clock design uses NTP (Network Time Protocol) to always display the accurate time, synchronized to the same clocks that run the Internet!

Our A2WH test unit at Pleasant Beach exceeded the target goal of water production from air using solar energy over two sunny days this weekend. This gives us a great feedback with a 100% complete unit that the new design is performing as designed. I am making a few more changes to see how far we can improve the production over the rest of the summer. This is important because it is the exact design we plant to produce in larger volumes. When we receive a big order I am highly confident that A2WH water production will exceed our promises. Thanks Joe E.

Colorful LED Masks Encourage a Sustainable World #CitizenScience
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/05/03/colorful-led-masks-encourage-a-sustainable-world-citizenscience/

It’s different strokes for different folks when it comes to ways to participate in citizen science, and this one really gets my attention. Chadwick John Friedman, a student at the University of Denver, was interested in Twitter insights on sustainability and decided to create a real-time artistic data visualization, according to 3ders. Called PrecogNation, the three masks ensemble glow to represent the challenges in becoming a sustainable world.

Progress in sustainable development (green) is represented by keywords such as renewable energy, wind turbines and so on. Threats to sustainability (red) include deforestation, global warming and pollution. The blue group, finally, represents contrasting results. After all, “polar bear” and “melting polar” in a single article are unreadable for the masks.

The masks were 3D printed and the way they are connected reminds me of the “precogs” aligned in the tank in Minority Report. In the film, each represented different views much like this project. In Chadwick’s piece, red and blue occur more often than green, but that is not surprising.

This is in fact a positive outcome, as one of the main goals of this project is to highlight the importance of maintaining a dialogue – even if that dialogue surrounds daunting threats to sustainability.

Sustainability is a topic that often comes with guilt because it doesn’t go well with consumerism and waste. People have to get over their defenses in order to open up to the topic before any change can happen. I see this tech project as a good way to start the curiosity and questions.

When ridding for your commute or for pleasure, being visible on the road is always a nightmare, as either your bike light system in daylight is not visible, or because drivers never known when you turn in night conditions.

The Blinky Bike project is the ultimate solution to add light system to any Bike.

Don't forget to vote and favorite that project.
