    Can I still call something a “Cool Kickstarter” if it’s on Indiegogo?  Of course I can, this is my site! Deepak from OpenElectrons and Mindsensors let me know they’ve just started a very cool Indiegogo project: a BeagleBone Wiress Console or BBConsole for short.  Not unlike a previous project they did for the […]

    Shane Lewis from SL Interphase mailed me to tell me about a Kickstarter project that they’ve been developing.  You may think it is just another robotics platform but this one is significantly different from the herd (or should I say “swarm”?).  This one doesn’t have a microcontroller but uses an FPGA instead! […]

    Cool Kickstarter: The Edison

    A very cool Kickstarter project was brought to my attention this morning, the Edison.  It’s a very small and light robot that has a surprisingly high number of features up its sleeve.  A few of them should be immediately obvious to most: the LEGO compatible pin holes and knobs.  The […]

    Deepak and Nitin Patil from Mindsensors have created another awesome Kickstarter project under the OpenEelectrons.com flag: the PiUPS, an uninterruptable power supply for the Raspberry Pi in a very compact package. It’s an inline power supply system that constantly charges the backup batteries when it’s connected to the mains or another […]

    There’s a very cool new project on Kickstarter: the Pi-Pan, a pan-tilt rig for the Raspberry Pi Camera.  This project has been created by Mindsensors, so you can expect a good product.  As you can see from the screenshot, they’ve more than reached their funding goal and they still have […]

    The BrickPi is Dexter Industries latest project.  It’s an interface board, or shield, for the super popular Raspberry Pi, a cheap ($25) and small but very powerful processor board that runs Linux.  The BrickPi allows you to easily interface your NXT motors and sensors with the RasPi, without having to […]

    Cool Kickstarter: MinuteBot Base

    I came across a very cool Kickstarter project called “MinuteBot Base”.  From what I gather from the project, it’s a 21×30 hole studless plate which you can use a stable base for your robot.  I have no idea why LEGO didn’t come up with this themselves. From their Kickstarter page: […]
