One fancy 3D printed camera motion control rig

Wow this is one complex build. Not so sure I would make this one, even if my printer could print the larger parts. Nice to watch the build thought.

Making a smart buoy

Nice build, the author designed this to help with monitoring in the ocean. But I could see it being used in things like ponds and lakes too. It uses an RPi too.

Author uses a RPi to make a decent thermo camera

Using a $60 thermo camera and a $15 dollar display, oh and a RaspberryPi of course, the author builds a cheap thermo camera. Me, I have seen the FILR’s go down to $150, so I think I would buy that … Continue reading

Interesting 3D printed Biology projects

The project, Poseidon project by California Institute of Technology, has som e pretty cool builds. It includes a 3D printed digital microscope, and a 3D printed syringe pump. They use arduino’s for controllers.

ZeroBot

I have been looking at this build. Its pretty straight forward and can be cheap (assuming you have a 3D printer) to make, under $50 anyways. https://hackaday.io/project/25092-zerobot-raspberry-pi-zero-fpv-robot#menu-description

Once fancy lego sorter

This one is pretty amazing. This is one big lego sorter (made of legos of course). It uses AI to id and find new lego parts to add to its category. https://www.ubergizmo.com/2019/12/lego-sorter-uses-neural-network/?utm_source=mainrss
