Arduino and Raspberry Pi together

Raspberry Pi and Arduino seems to be the most interesting small single board platforms at the moment for the hobbyists. It is a bit sad to see some people who are very passionate about the Arduino community coming down quite hard on the Raspberry Pi project as the Big Bad, suggesting that we’re trying to

Arduino Ethernet Shields

The Arduino Ethernet Shield connects your Arduino to the internet. Just plug Arduino Ethernet Shield module onto your Arduino board, connect it to your network with an RJ45 cable and follow a few simple instructions to start controlling your world through the internet. The original Arduino Ethernet Shield is based on the Wiznet W5100 ethernet

Arduino Motion-Sensing SMS Alarm Project

Surprisingly Simple Arduino Motion-Sensing Project Makes For Some Weekend Fun article tells that Matt Williamson built a tiny, Arduino-based motion sensor that will SMS you when something moves by your desk or into a room. It’s completely open source and the notifications system runs on your PC thanks to a simple Python script. Why is

Try GPU computing with WebCL

GPU computing is a hot topic at the moment. GPU computing is the use of a GPU (graphics processing unit) as a co-processor to accelerate CPUs for general-purpose scientific and engineering computing. General-purpose computing on graphics processing units (GPGPU) is the means of using a graphics processing unit (GPU), which typically handles computation only for

New camera technology: See around corners

When I was a kid, there was a periscope you could make out of a cardboard tube and two small hand mirrors to see around corners. Now there’s a video camera system that can do the same. Camera Can See Around Corners and Femtosecond Camera Sees Around Corners articles tell that Scientists at the Massachusetts
