#Project Internet of Things #Microscope using #RaspberryPi3
The folks at Arch Reactor, the St. Louis hackerspace, are building a microscope. This one is low-cost, digital, and has a surprisingly high magnification and pretty good optics. It’s the Internet of Things Microscope, and like all good apparatus for Citizen Scientist, it’s a remarkable tool for classrooms and developing countries.

#Project: Motion Controlled Lamp using #RaspberryPi
Step by step of building an automatic lamp with motion control. This project will be built using a Raspberry Pi Model B with the GrovePi expansion board from Dexter Industries along with their Ultrasonic sensor and Relay module. We’ll be using a custom Raspbian disk image for this project, running on the latest “jessie” build. Goto project site
#Project Smart Umbrella Stand using #RaspberryPi
Follow this tutorial steps of building a smart umbrella stand. This is one of our favorite raspberry pi projects. It uses a RaspberryPi Model B with the GrovePi expansion board from Dexter Industries along with their Ultrasonic sensor, Buzzer, and LED module. We’ll be using a custom Raspbian disk image for this project, running on the latest “jessie” build. Goto project site:
Original Apollo 11 Guidance Computer (AGC) source code for the command and lunar modules.
Original Apollo 11 guidance computer (AGC) source code for Command Module (Comanche055) and Lunar Module (Luminary099). Digitized by the folks at Virtual AGC and MIT Museum. The goal is to be a repo for the original Apollo 11 source code. As such, PRs are welcome for any issues identified between the transcriptions in this repository and the original source scans for Luminary 099 and Comanche 055, as well as any files I may have missed.

#Project M.A.R.S. a #3Dprinted space exploration vehicle, M.A.R.S stands for MADspace Advanced Robotics System
The brainchild of Paul Wagener, Tom Geelen, Sedar Yildirim, and Guus van der Sluijs, all members of the MADspace hackerspace in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, M.A.R.S. is a “curiosity-inspired robotics platform” which takes the form of a 3D printed rover. The vehicle, designed to move across the surface of a planet “or other celestial body”, is—like the first project on this list—powered by a Raspberry Pi, but drives on six wheels, of which four can steer. M.A.R.S. is also equipped with four logitech c270 webcams—perfect for exploring new terrain and reporting on visual findings.
#Project #Venduino a #DIY #Arduino vending machine
Ryan Bates has built a miniaturized vending machine from scratch using an Arduino Uno, four continuous rotation servos, and a Nokia 5110 LCD. The device, dubbed “Venduino,” includes four input buttons to make a selection, an LED indicator, and a 12V light strips to illuminate the inside of the cabinet. Whether it’s candies, toiletries, game cartridges, or miscellaneous items you’re looking to dispense, the possibilities are endless. Simply insert a coin, choose a product, and repeat.
#Project #PiKon a #3Dprinted #astro cam using #RaspberryPi
Designed by Mark Wrigley of Sheffield’s Alternative Photonics and staff at the University of Sheffield’s Department of Physics, the incredible PiKon astro-cam consists of 3D printed components and a Raspberry Pi, and can be used to take photographs of outer space at a x160 magnification factor. The device can be mounted on a standard camera tripod for stability, and images captured on it can be transferred to a computer with the Pi’s micro-SD card or to a cloud-based service such as Dropbox. According to the Wigley, the PiKon is capable of producing 5-megapixel images of the night sky and costs just £100 to build. Read more on 3ders.org
