Make some concrete handles

I like this idea, its simple, and you can use a silicon ice tray for repeats, or a box for simple ones.

Anchor seems like a simple tool for simple podcasting

Never heard of it before.  The basic is free, not sure how they make money thought.

Make a concrete cutting board

I have been on a concrete kick lately, this is an interesting build, but …seems like a heavy solution for a cutting board.  Cool looking thought.

Even Google is in IoT Cloud

Sounds like the API is now open beta.  Looks interesting, basically its a way for IoT to feed data back to a central system that can be used to process it.

Google’s Cloud IoT Core is now generally available

3D print your own brace

Well in this case you print the flat version, then heat it up and shape it.  Clever idea, I can see this being expanded on where doctors could make custom braces in house.

Cool LED Table build

I like this LED table build.  But..if you want the kit its Europe only customers.  Still looks straight forward enough to build on your own.

Interesting Arduino alternatives

the ESP’s (NodeMCU’s) are already one I play with, they are cheap and easy to use, and have wifi (kindof).  STM32 (Blue Pill) sounds promising, but I haven’t had a chance to try one out yet.

MSP430, I tried these out but the dev tools for them stink.
