BJ is a musician, singer, and composer, and has written the bulk of the theme music you hear on National Public Radio (NPR). His music is hard […]

    • Project Ndovu October 5, 2017
      African elephants need a lot of water every day for drinking and mud baths . During the dry season, their keen sense of smell allows them to detect water underground in dry riverbeds, where they dig holes with their tusks to reach it. Once the elephants have had their fill, other animals move in to […]
    • S[w]@G: Smart Wicked Aquaponics Garden October 5, 2017
      so I’m building Bostons 1st Kijani Grows 35gallon Wicked Smart aquaponics garden… lets just call it “swag” for short. Swag is definitely getting customized a tad, mostly because it will be both our indoor home garden & transportable demo garden. This means it has to be a bit more rigid to withstand all the vibration […]

      Uchi Mata is considered the “Throw of Kings” and made my good friend Chuma Soita invincible in competitive judo. Chuma broke his neck executing this technique in a tournament and became paralyzed immediately.

    • Antique organ speaks clues at an escape room October 17, 2017
      When tasked with converting an antique pump organ—sort of a miniature version of a full-sized pipe organ—into part of an escape room puzzle, hacker Alec Smecher decided to turn it into a vocal MIDI device. To accomplish this, he embedded switches in each of the keys, then wired them into an Arduino Leonardo embedded in the 100-year-old […]

      Two of Boris Werner’s friends, both musicians, were getting married, so for a unique gift he decided on a miniature stage setup with a Playmobil bride and groom as the guitarists. After some research and ordering quite a few parts, he was able to construct a festival-inspired scene, complete with guitars, lights, and some tunes. […]
    • Be among the first to try the Arduino IDE 1.9 Beta October 11, 2017
      Today we’re very excited (and a bit nervous) to announce the new development cycle of the Arduino IDE. As you may have noticed, we’ve been continuously removing functionality from the Java package, and migrating them to a collection of external tools. We began this project by moving the build logic to arduino-builder, which now also […]

If remembering to do that over and over seems like too much work, then here’s a simple solution: a device setup to optically wiggle your mouse using an Arduino […]
    • Cutting electronic parts with Arduino-powered scissors October 10, 2017
      When faced with the need to cut thousands of parts from reels in order to make them into kits, “Der Zerhacker” decided to automate the process. For his robotic machine, an Arduino Pro Mini pulls strips of SMD tape into position with a stepper motor, coloring them along the way with a marker. An infrared sensor is used […]
