Working is not (usually) super fun. But playing games (usually) is! Let’s put the two together to make a productivity hacking device. // https://www.hackster.io/news/the-upcoming-arduboy-fx-lets-you-store-hundreds-of-games-in-flash-memory-e90d478f14f7 // https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pomodoro_Technique // https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traditional_Chinese_timekeeping#One-hundredth_of_a_day:_K%C3%A8 // https://www.hackster.io/glowascii/hypnos-pendant-c294c4 // https://www.hackster.io/glowascii/tinyscreen-decimal-clock-cb3df7 // https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swatch_Internet_Time // https://www.hackster.io/glowascii/the-creativity-button-b0f608 // https://www.hackster.io/fabienchouteau/micro-gamer-portable-game-console-based-on-the-micro-bit-44cde6 // https://www.hackster.io/videos/534 // https://community.arduboy.com/t/circuit-dude-3-1-update-75-levels-level-editor-sharing-tool/2490 // https://learn.adafruit.com/arduboy-game-controller/build-and-assemble-the-cabinet
In this webinar Helium will introduce their Dev Kit, the perfect development setup to get started on The People’s Network. You’ll learn about the #IoTforGood competition on Hackster.io and useful tips and tricks for building your projects.
Alex upgraded her new companion AI, F3NR1R, with touch-responsive controls, thanks to Brown Dog Gadgets’ "Maker Tape". Learn more in today’s video! Plus, don’t forget to take our quiz, for a chance to win one of 100 Intel Neural Compute Stick 2s! https://bit.ly/2RVVUuJ // https://www.hackster.io/glowascii/f3nr1r-fennec-companion-ai-d71dca // Maker Tape intro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8LSpMGoGew // https://www.hackster.io/glowascii/paper-emotions-bot-da2b8c // Kitty’s stream:
Alex has been working on this robotic fennec fox companion, which runs OpenVINO AI for various helpful purposes. Its "third eye" camera can take photos and detect posture, help you learn challenging poses, and more. The inference is done on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B mounted in the torso, with an Intel Neural Compute

Alex did a guest spot today with Brown Dog Gadgets, creators of Maker Tape. Check out this simple emoting bot, which requires no soldering or wires – just an Arduino, an LED, conductive Maker Tape, and paper! (Plus a marker to give it some personality 🙂 // Brown Dog Gadgets stream: https://twitter.com/BrownDogGadgets/status/1271170948998127617 // Finished companion
We’re planning a summer with lots of bike rides, and that means staying safe (and awesome) with custom LED lights! In this first video, we get acquainted with some common types of (non-programmable) LEDs, and why "cathode" and "anode" don’t always seem to mean the same thing. For those of y’all who already have some
Let’s explore how an LED throwie circuit works! What’s the deal with anodes and cathodes?
Representation matters! But if you haven’t thought about it before, it can be hard to know how to help. If you live every day as a marginalized person, it can be hard to find resources to support you. So, here are a few places to start. Whether you’re looking for speakers for your conference, a
With many events canceled for this year, and some moving to virtual spaces, what’s on?
