Yoyogi National Gymnasium replaced the wooden floor with 400sqm of SEfl LED Video-flooring from Glux. (via rentGlux)   The B. League basketball games in Tokyo have kicked off with the first beginning with Alvark Tokyo against the Ryukyu Golden Kings at Tokyo’s Yoyogi National Gymnasium. The game itself is just like any pro basketball game, however the MVP in this case isn’t the best player but rather the court itself as the traditional wood planks have been replaced by LED disp ...
The Invader mixes an old school turntable with a embedded record (Photo from Thud Rumble)   Hoping to do something similar to this with a Raspberry Pi, but in the meantime....   The art of DJing has been around since the late 70s. Over time the art form has evolved and adapted to new technology. Some find the use of computers in DJing an innovation; others see it as lazy and prefer the old school way. But both methods offer something different the other doesn't have. Isn't there a w ...
Ecad.io lets users convert their ECAD files into MCAD files online, such as this Arduino Uno 3D schematic. (via ecad.io)   If you’re looking for a quick and simple way to convert your ECAD files into MCAD, you may want to check out ecad.io (now part of the Autodesk empire). What’s more, users can view and manipulate the models in 3D as well as modify those models in a limited fashion i.e. hiding unwanted objects and changing-out simple components. Once the 3D model manipulation ...
Researchers used a rapid-deposition process to attach an aligned array of carbon nanotubes on a 1-inch X 1-inch substrate. (via WISC)   Materials engineers from the University of Wisconsin have finally developed a process that turns carbon nanotubes into resistors that can outperform traditional silicon or even gallium-based transistors. How much faster are they compared to silicon- 1.9-times faster to be exact, making them a viable candidate for batteries with longer life, faster Wi-Fi an ...
HTML’s virtual drum machines are now available for free on all popular browsers. It, Arduino, and littleBits new drum and synth kits make music making easier than ever.   This is a hobby like interest for me - synthesizers and drum machines. Mainly, I am fascinated with them due to the plethora of SBCs I could use to recreate the sound. Or rather, how do I use SBCs to recreate them. Here is some 808 news for you…   If you were thinking of forking over $600 for a drum ...
In honor of the original Nintendo Entertainment System, Analogue and 8bitdo created the Retro Receiver – a Bluetooth receiver that allows the original Nintendo console to work seamlessly with modern Bluetooth controllers. (via 8bitdo)   I am writing about this with an ulterior motive. I wanted to make something like this for the arcade project I had - using a Pi Zero. First, we explore what now exists... and what can be done from here. Is this merely emulating a serial connection? & ...
