Face Recognition Chip revolutionizing Smartphone Security

Back in 2007 Apple released the first generation of iPhone which is considered as the first smartphone as those we use today. Before that, PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) dominated the market and some even included network connectivity, the ability to send and receive calls, and password unlocking. The iPhone inherited the ability to be unlocked with a 4-digit personal password which allowed users to pro ...

Researchers Of RMIT University Develops Swalloable Gas Sensors That Can Improve Your Diet

Researchers led by Kourosh Kalantar-Zadeh, at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia have developed the first intestinal gas-diagnosing pill to be tested in human. During the study, which was published on January 8 in Nature Electronics, the swallowable gas sensors were tested in seven healthy participants who ate low and high-fiber diets. This ‘smart’ capsule is capable of measuring levels of Oxygen, Hydr ...

Remote Controlled Robot

The purpose of this final project was to create a small mobile robot and control it via a wireless controller. To accomplish our goal, we decided to use the Arduino Uno microcontroller as the base for both the controller and robot. For the wireless functionality we used the Xbee module. [gallery size="medium" ids="31105,31106,31107"] The robot chassis, motors and wheels were provided by Professor Arner from ...

Das Blinken Bonken! an Arduino Ball Throwing Game Platform.

https://youtu.be/UPtVqJkY8N8 This is a fun and pretty easy project that I built as a Christmas present for my kid who loves throwing things. Watch the video to see what it can do. It's built out of a regular Arduino UNO, pressure sensors made from velostat, and RGB LED strip, and 7 segment LED display. Source code for the games is available on github. Enjoy! Step 1: Gather Materials Materials List: 2'x ...

milliDelta Robot- High speed and Precision in a Compact Design

Delta robots are machines with three arms designed to move at high speeds and perform precise tasks. The three arms are connected to a universal join at the base, and the device uses parallelograms that restrict the movement avoiding rotation. As a result, they can move in x, y, and z plane and have high acceleration because it’s made of a light material. They gained popularity in factories for assembly and ...

Arduino Assisted RC Truck/Car

Recently I dusted off my 7 year old Stampede 2wd, designed in 1996. I got it for my 8th birthday. The truck was great, but it had a few caveats. For example, if the truck ran out of range, battery was low, or the transmitter batteries died on you, the truck would keep the throttle on the last position. Thanks to this accidental cruise (out of) control (See what I did there? 0_o), I accidentally drove m ...

KeySampler

This instrument was build by Lieven Menschaert and Danny Leen using  an Arduino Uno and some  hardware components ( rotary encoder, potentiometer and  simple iron bolts). The software running the actual audio and video is a Pure Data / GEM patch. Additionaly Echonest API was used to do the sample cutup. You can send any mp4 file to it and it returns a folder containing the sliced up .mp4 and ...

Physicists Of University of Rochester Have Created Polariton – A Particle With Negative Mass

A group of researchers led by Nick Vamivakas from the University of Rochester has successfully produced particles which have negative mass in an atomically thin semiconductor material. According to the researchers, they have created a device that can generate LASER light using a significantly small amount of energy. All made possible with the help of this so-called negative mass particles. Quantum physicist ...

Tidal Clock

This is a tutorial for making the Tidal Clock. The clock shows the ebb and flow between high and low tide by a rising and falling water level. It consists of an airtight acrylic container that has a front visible chamber and a back hidden chamber. A volume rotates through the back chamber, displacing the water in the front and causing the water level to rise and fall. The rotation is controlled by an Arduin ...
