    Cool Kickstarter: nuFlip – wireless light control

    OpenElectrons has created another Kickstarter Project: the nuFlip.  What’s that, you ask?  It’s a Bluetooth controlled light switch adapter that you can mount on existing North American style light switches.  There’s no need for complicated electrical reworking, it simply sits on top of your existing switches! Here’s a list of […]

    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: […]
