I’ve recently discovered this video posted by Piotrfirst, who shows the output signal obtained using an amplifier circuit designed by following the guidelines from the application note of the microwave sensor.
He named the unicycle “Raptor” because it looks like the head of a dinosaur on the side-view and it’s made from common materials found around: a chain driven wheelbarrow wheel powered by a 350W geared motor with 9:1 reduction gearbox, a pair of 12V 7.2Ah batteries wired in series, some PVC and polycarbonate, an IMU gyro and an Arduino UNO.

With Arduino’s advantages such as simple programming and cheap materials, no wonder that new projects like Pinoccio are adding special features in order to improve the original design. Pinoccio is powered by a rechargeable battery and it features integrated temperature sensors, integrated MESH radio and WiFi connectivity through a WiFi shield. It can also be used to connect remotely with other Pinoccios, building an internet of things.
Although Pinoccio is just a few inches long and an inch wide, it is still as powerful as the Arduino Mega. This undertaking is campaigning to raise $60000 for this project at Indiegogo.

The beer packs a lot of vitamins minerals and fibers which are healthy for the brain. A Reddit user named Schrodinger Drunk has been drinking lots of it lately because he was able to create a digital board using Raspberry Pi attached to his home-brew tap list. Continue reading
The latest Electric Imp has already been released in Beta version and is ready to accept orders of development kits for designers.
The Electric Imp is an SD-card sized WiFi (802.11b/g/n) module with built-in antenna, 6 I/O, Arm Cortex M3 Micro-controller, and a Cloud-based infrastructure for programming and control. The I/O supports serial, I2C, SPI, A2D, D2A, and PWM interfaces. The Imp uses the Squirrel programming language, which is a small footprint C/C++ derivative for embedded devices. Continue reading
