Making Electronic Sound With Conductive Plaster

Making Electronic Sound With Conductive Plaster

“Following blorgggg’s project on conductive silicone circuit, I decided to venture on my own experiment with carbon fiber. Turns out, a shape cast out of carbon-fiber-infused plaster can also be used as a variable resistor! With a few copper rod and the a few quick programming, you will be able to use your conductive plaster form as a sensor …

Mouth Operated Mouse

Mouth Operated Mouse

“About This project was intended to prove if it is possible to build a pointing device (mouse) for people with disabilities for under 20 USD, using only components which are widely available as well as a 3D printer. The result is a basic mouth operated mouse which can be connected via USB to nearly every PC. The case allows to …

New WALK-MAN Robot Is Slimmer, Quicker, Better at Quenching Your Flames

“Since the DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals in June of 2015, roboticists at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) have been working to improve the capabilities of their custom made humanoid disaster robot, WALK-MAN. WALK-MAN is part of a much larger European Commission-funded project, which involves a variety of research institutes and universities all contributing to the development of …

Personal Health Dashboard

Personal Health Dashboard

“A giant display to motivate oneself to stay active. This project was created out of a need to motivate oneself to be physically active. When we tracked our physical activity, we noticed that there is very minimal/lack of physical activity during the weekends, especially during the winter season. We decided to build something that would act as a source …

Real-Time Face Recognition: An End-To-End Project

Real-Time Face Recognition: An End-To-End Project

“On my last tutorial exploring OpenCV, we learned AUTOMATIC VISION OBJECT TRACKING. Now we will use our PiCam to recognize faces in real-time, as you can see below: This project was done with this fantastic “Open Source Computer Vision Library”, the OpenCV. On this tutorial, we will be focusing on Raspberry Pi (so, Raspbian as OS) and Python, but I …

Remembering Really Fast

“Colossal magnetoresistance at terahertz frequencies in thin composites boosts novel memory devices operated at extremely high speed. Electronics could work faster if they could read and write data at terahertz frequency, rather than at a few gigahertz. Creating such devices would be eased with materials that can undergo a huge change in how easily they conducted electricity in response to …

Scientists deliver high-resolution glimpse of enzyme structure

“New finding suggests differences in how humans and bacteria control production of DNA’s building blocks. Using a state-of-the-art type of electron microscopy, an MIT-led team has discovered the structure of an enzyme that is crucial for maintaining an adequate supply of DNA building blocks in human cells. Their new structure also reveals the likely mechanism for how cells …
