With Arduino, it’s possible to build almost anything you can imagine. Whether it’s wearables, apps, or robots, the freedom Arduino offers can be liberating or intimidating, depending on your skill level. So this bundle of parts and lessons is a great resource for anyone looking to break into Arduino.
When Raspberry Pi rolled out in 2012, people immediately hailed the low-cost, credit card-size microcomputer as a fun new toy for kids and tech tinkerers. Since then, forward-thinking Pi users adapted this “toy” into a surprisingly powerful piece of tech. Users create everything from home media networks to robotics to fully automatic timesavers.
Commercial photographer Paul Adshead could have spent a few bucks for a macro lens attachment for his iPhone. Instead, a MacGyver-type of a hack gave him a lens and ethereal macro photos that seem achievable with only a high-powered microscope.
Feeling adventurous and uninspired by his smartphone photos, Adshead harvested an internal lens from a 1990s-era CD drive and, with a little tack-it putty, affixed it to his iPhone.
Arduino offers tools to build basically anything imaginable, from robots, to computers, games, weather stations, you name it. The possibilities are so vast, it can be hard to know where to start. So this bundle of Arduino lessons and materials offers a great resource.
Raspberry Pi is the platform for almost any DIY computing project you can imagine. From home entertainment systems, to robotics, to building your own smart home, it’s a compact processor with vast possibilities. So where do you even begin?
Raspberry Pi is a nearly limitless platform for all kinds of projects. It’s also a great way to bridge the physical and digital worlds, and a window into the internet of things. But to do that, you need the right gear and guidance.
Ever wondered what it would take to give your iPhone more storage? Apple charges a lot for additional room; maybe you could save a bundle by buying a low capacity version and upgrade the iPhone memory yourself.
A hobbyist successfully took his iPhone from 16GB to 128GB. But as he showed in a video detailing the process, it was a heck of a lot of work.
If you love Legos and the clicky feeling of using a mechanical keyboard then prepare to meet the keyboard of your dreams.
