HypriotOS – a Docker based container OS for Raspberry Pi

#HypriotOS – a #Docker based #container #OS for #RaspberryPi

HypriotOS brings containers concept to Raspberry Pi board, HypriotOS is a stripped back Debian-based OS comes pre-installed with a number of Docker tools for Raspberry Pi versions 1, 2, and 3, as well as the Pi Zero and the compute module. HypriotOS utilizes the pre-installed Docker Engine 1.12.1, and Docker’s Swarm Mode helps spread containers between a multi-node Pi cluster, which could be helpful for developers looking to build a network of Internet of Things devices.

Happy 70th Independence Day – 2016

Wishing fellow Indian’s a happy 70th #IndependenceDay – #2016


Project: Raspberry Pi CNC – and for remote control of your CNC .

#RaspberryPi #CNC Controller is board which can control stepper motors for 3 axis devices (X, Y, Z). It uses Pololu A4988/DRV8825 drivers and can control 2 stepper motors for X axis, 2 stepper motors for Y axis and one stepper motor for Z axis.

Brain of this board is #Arduino Nano with #GRBL firmware. Board can be used separately (controlled by USB on Arduino) or can be used as hat on Raspberry Pi and controlled by UART.

Area 404 – Facebook’s hardware lab

#Area404 – #Facebook’s hardware lab is where Facebook will prototype its solar drones, Internet-beaming lasers, VR headsets, and next-gen servers.

Area 404 is named after the Not Found error code. Facebook engineers kept needing to prototype new hardware devices, but the resources necessary were unfortunately not found at Facebook. Packed with giant, expensive, dangerous machines like a computer-controlled 9-axis drill, Area 404 houses one of the few rooms at Facebook Mark Zuckerberg isn’t allowed in. It’s too unsafe despite all the precautions, certifications, and training Facebook offers its hardware engineers.
