Measure Pressure With Your Micro:bit

The following instructable describes a easy to build and inexpensive device to perform pressure measurements and demonstrate Boyle’s law, using the micro:bit in combination with the BMP280 pressure/temperature sensor. Whereas this syringe/pressure sensor combination has already been described in one of my previous instructables, the combination with the micro:bit is offering new opportunities, e.g. for class …

3-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor

Wireless power transfer systems are well on their way to replacing conventional wired charging. Ranging from tiny biomedical implants all the way to wirelessly recharging huge electric vehicles. An integral part of the research on wireless power is minimizing the magnetic field density. The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) provides scientific advice and …

HOMEBREW ESPRESSO MAKER MODDING WITH GAGGIUINO

For those that don’t know, Gaggia is a company that produces a line of affordable “entry-level” espresso coffee makers that offer good quality consumer espresso machines at reasonable prices. The entry level machines don’t offer fine grained control over temperature, pressure and steam which is where the Gaggiuino project comes in. The Gaggiuino project is an “after …
