Fan or Heatsink?
While I am waiting for the last parts I am missing to fire up mu Joule, I made the decision to go with a heat sink to cool down the beast. Intel gives the option of using the heat sink shipped with the development kit, or to pick a fan to do the job. Although a fan sounds better, in my projected use case, it is not. Indeed, this Joule will be used as an advanced telemetry platform for my high-power rocket I am building. And if on a bench or desk, you can probably accommodate anything, it is not the case in an environment where physics reminds itself to you. With a maximum speed simulated at 384 m/s and an acceleration of 231 m/s2 (or 23.5G), the fan is out of the picture. Installing the heatsink is pretty simple. However, I will need to work on a much stronger locking mechanism since the paperclip-like is too weak. Next time, we should be able to see the Joule boot!

Teen Creates ‘Sit With Us’ App to Take On Bullying With Kindness #MakerEducation @nobodyeatsalone

via Huffington Post and Los Angeles Daily News

“This way it’s very private. It’s through the phone. No one else has to know,” [Natalie Hampton] explained to. “And you know that you’re not going to be rejected once you get to the table.”

Hampton, a 16-year-old from Sherman Oaks, California, is the designer of Sit With Us, which launched on September 9. She was inspired to create it after she ate alone her entire seventh grade year, she told LA Daily News. The situation left Hampton feeling vulnerable and made her a target for bullying.

Hampton, now a junior, is attending a different school and is thriving socially. Yet, the memory of sitting alone and being bullied still haunts her, especially since she knows her experience isn’t an isolated one.

Hampton told Audie Cornish on NPR’s “All Things Considered” that the reason why she felt an app like this was necessary is because it prevents kids from being publicly rejected and being considered social outcasts by their peers.

My cat got self-trapped in a cottage roof, 5 meters away from the fence, and surrounded by four dogs.

Maker skills on the rescue! A huge ring made from a pvc plate, thread for the net, and the pool vacuum telescopic pole.

Some cat food in a yoghourt cup as a bait helped a lot.

Ani the cat is safe at home now 😊

Learn about Code Club for kids in the UK #makereducation
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/09/06/learn-about-code-club-for-kids-in-the-uk-makereducation/

Nice piece from Opensource.com.

The British technology industry was strongly in favor of remaining as part of the European Union, so the fallout from last month’s referendum is causing significant concerns. For many tech businesses, the most serious issue now is how to attract and retain top talent from across Europe and beyond.

For some time, the UK’s technology sector has been concerned about finding the right skilled workers to fill jobs in the future. This predicted “digital skills gap” warns that unless we help people to become confident with technology now, we will be facing a huge shortage in skilled workers in the future.

Pharos LED Headpiece by Becky Stern #WearableWednesday @bekathwia
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/09/21/pharos-led-headpiece-by-becky-stern-wearablewednesday-bekathwia/

Another great wearable project from Becky Stern! Check out the full Instructable here.

This project was a commission by Christian Joy Costumes. She wanted to add LEDs to a colorful headpiece to go with the grass skirt and fuzzy shoes for Childish Gambino’s Pharos concert series. I happily soldered up this circuit on top of a headband she created.

Three Brilliant Arduino And Raspberry Pi Projects With Temperature Sensor
An analog temperature sensor is a chip using a solid-state technique to determine the temperature and tell you what the ambient temperature is ! By precisely amplifying the voltage change, it is easy to generate an analog signal that is directly proportional to temperature.

Mag+Art Mashups #ArtTuesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/09/06/magart-mashups-arttuesday/

Interesting work, Via Behance

A year ago, I came up with my Mag+Art project – a collection of magazine cover and classical painting mash-ups. My Tumblog became a bit popular and gained some followers. One of my followers requested me to try combining album cover art (instead of magazines) and classical paintings. It’s more difficult but I gave it a try.

I took the chance to make a series of digital collages featuring the studio album covers of some popular singers today. I used these album covers because they are simpler and straightforward. I think (the principles of) photography is the same as classical painting. Portraiture using cameras adopted the same set of rules and techniques in painting.
