First attempt at growing lettuce under DIY LED growlights.

Also using my own wireless temperature sensor to monitor the temperature in the box. Lots of improvements to be made, but happy wit the progress so far.
Something slightly different today. Since I now live in a TINY flat with no garden, I'm unable to grow any veg outside (and there's a really long waiting list for local allotments). So I've decided...

Ok, guess I'll try on Habaneros. There is more need for at my place.

Company seeking Manufacturing Engineer, Charlotte, NC... Cold-Forming Tooling

http://www.firstsun.com/?p=6677
Fortune 500 manufacturing company, seeks an experienced cold-forming manufacturing engineer for their North Carolina facility. If you are a mechanical engineer and have experience with machines manufactured by companies like Formax, Nakashimata, or Carlo Salvi, this may be the opportunity for you. This is a division of a household-name brand manufacturer that is growing rapidly both organically and through acquisition. Great growth opportunity in...

This is my entry for the 2015 Hackaday Prize. Show support if you are interested. We are just putting the final touches on the design and will be throwing together REV 0 soon!

http://hackaday.io/project/4608-medical-picorder
There are estimated to be millions of people living in medically under-served areas. Georgia alone has 127 medically under-served counties with a physician to patient ratio of 1:3500. This project will allow those living in medically under-served areas access to critical diagnostic and procedural care. This device is not intended to replace primary care physicians but instead will reduce the number of unnecessary deaths associated with untreated ...

A topic +Limor Fried has championed also.
 
Senator Orrin G. Hatch says we need legislation to stop patent trolls in their tracks.
"Small to mid-size companies are attractive targets to patent trolls because they don’t have the resources to defend themselves."

Anyone remember +Pinoccio? I talked about it a while ago. Looks like theyre doing a major overhaul on their boards...I hope they still let us hobbyists have access to their products when their newest project is complete.. It does make me kinda sad to see the not really focusing on the regular user base but catering towards industrial users..but perhaps they will come back to support the small user group..
The Future of Pinoccio. by Eric on March 30, 2015. Many of you in our community have been asking about availability of Pinoccio Scouts, and also about the future of Pinoccio as a company. This post intends to answer those questions. When Sally and I first founded Pinoccio, we had a strong ethos ...

Even industrially-focussed companies recognise that it's the makers and tinkerers who decide the future purchasing of any company they may go on to work for - Microchip have been shipping free samples for years, and a whole slew of companies have been giving away their (previously expensive) software for a long time now, for the same reason. As I Microchip/PIC user, I appreciate their robustness "in the field" and have a lot more faith in them for real applications. Throwing together a quick prototype on an Arduino is fun, but I'm still not convinced about the AVR chips robustness for a real-world project (they're very easy to fry). PICs have long been seen as "industrial level" microcontrollers - but they're still great for tinkerers and makers; they just take a bit more effort than Arduino. Personally, I think this news will only make Pinoccio a stronger company, and their product a better product.

I was proud to be able to consult with the guy who built this. He's using my IRLib infrared library for Arduino.

Imperial Star Destroyer #Drone
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/03/30/imperial-star-destroyer-drone/

French maker Olivier C builds custom housing for quadcopters that turn them into the crazy “Star Wars” drones you’re looking for. We’ve already seen him build Millennium Falcon and TIE Interceptor drones, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down, with a few new videos displaying his latest creation, an Imperial Star Destroyer drone.

Has anyone tried making an ErgoDox? You can now buy it pre-made
The iconic ErgoDox keyboard is found on the nerdiest of desks. Not only does it look like something out of Hackers (movie) but owning one requires buying eac

I love my Ergodox. A new version is coming out soon that allows Matias stitches rather than the overall "meh"-ish cherry switches, and that allows infinite layer possibilities rather than just ten. I don't know whether the keys on the EZ version that this is displaying are really big and clunky, but I can tell you that the standard Ergodox keys are regular sized. I would recommend anyone interested to build one instead of getting one pre-built, because it is a very fun and interesting project.

+Tsvetomir Totev​ this has absolutely nothing to do with Apple. It is, instead, a high quality and fully adjustable keyboard with a more natural, matrix-style layout that can help people that experience pain and discomfort with more traditional style keyboards. Think about it: some of us are in front of our keyboard for most of our lives. Why not find something that works better than the old staggered key layout leftover from the typewriter era?

The Ergodox isn't for everyone or for every situation. I personally use the Plank keyboard when I travel because it has all the ergonomics and customization capabilities I need, but is much more practical to pull out and start typing on whether you're at a coffee shop or on a plane, while the Ergodox takes time to adjust properly and just... Doesn't work at all on airplanes, trains, etc. However, it is prefect for leaving one at the office and one at home for getting some serious work done on a seriously well-designed keyboard.

I'm a little ashamed to day that I wrote this on my phone (after all my talk on keyboards, too), but I saw this past while was at the park and had to put my two cents in.

Recently had a fire in the building I live in.. While no one was hurt, I did have some smoke damage.  So I started looking for ways to improve detection.

Got a Raspberry Pi 2 from +Adafruit Industries and have written my own monitoring app. Here's a preview. All 'burglar alarm' functions are working, as are alerts, email and SMS notifications, door striker relay and web interface. All that's left is to wire and code the gas sensors for gas/propane, smoke, and CO and I'm waiting on the ADC chip for that...

If it wasn't for 3D printing I would likely tell you that the rapid development of drones may be the most transformative technology of our generation. Promi

Hello folks! I recently published a new article on my blog dedicated to open-source home automation. In this article, I used the ESP8266 WiFi chip (that costs less than $5) to build a completely autonomous wireless lamp controller. It will allow you to control any device in your home from your computer or mobile device. Enjoy!
