3D Printing

RepRap

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:18357

RepRap is a free desktop 3D printer capable of printing plastic objects. Since many parts of RepRap are made from plastic and RepRap can print those parts, RepRap is a self-replicating machine - one that anyone can build given time and materials. It also means that - if you've got a RepRap - you can print lots of useful stuff, and you can print another RepRap for a friend...

The ESP8266 is an interesting new WiFi-enabled microcontroller. http://makezine.com/2015/04/01/designing-breadboard-adaptor-5-esp8266-microcontroller/

This is a proof of concept for setting up the newly released arduino Yun as light controller. A web server was setup on arduino Yun with support of MySQL and PHP. Light status is controlled with MySQL queries and even when a button is pressed triggers an SQL query, this is the advantage of Arduino Yun’s Bridge, you can interact between the ATmega 32U4 (Arduino side) and the Linino AR9331(Linux side). Below are some pictures of the setup and also a demo video. http://panmen.wordpress.com/2013/10/20/arduino-yun-light-control/

Babelfish

Adafruit's Arduino-based RFID flash-cards for learning language with open source hardware

Learn to make a speaking, card-reading toy! The Babel Fish helps you learn to say words and phrases on RFID flash cards by reading the card and playing an associated sound file loaded on an SD card inside. This project is very straightforward and could make a great jumping-off point for your own awesome RFID and Wave Shield project!

VISUALIZING TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY WITH PLOTLY FROM A MOUNTAIN EDGE. http://blog.arduino.cc/2014/03/10/visualizing-temperature-and-humidity-with-plotly-from-a-mountain-edge/

“You can’t touch this” is the project submitted by Stefano Guglielmetti for the Connected Home Project Contest by Make Magazine. It’s composed by a movement sensor (PIR) plus a camera and an Arduino Yún. When the sensor perceive a movement, Arduino plays a sound, takes a picture and sends you an email: http://blog.arduino.cc/2014/02/20/you-cant-touch-this/

This snippet provides an interesting technique to develop remote HTML5 web applications to display realtime data acquired from an Arduino Yun using Firebase, a powerful API to store and synchronize data in milliseconds. http://www.fabiobiondi.com/blog/2014/02/arduino-yun-angularjs-and-firebase-with-curl-realtime-data/

This is a very, very small project that shows just how to build an Arduino Yún powered Camera application: It grabs photos from an USB camera connected to the Yún, saves them periodically on a uSD card and uploads them to a web host where a gallery is automatically created based upon the number of images in the upload folder. This project might be for interest for people that are just getting started with the Yún and want to explore more of its capabilities… http://blog.arduino.cc/2014/01/16/build-a-arduino-yun-powered-cat-camera/
