Shonin Streamcam is a personal wearable camera that lets your record and stream to livestreaming platforms without eating up your battery life. The Shonin Streamcam is a wearable personal security device. (Photo from Shonin)   I was considering making a Raspberry Pi based body cam, and I wanted to see what was available now. I came across the Streamcam, and it makes me want to build the project after all.   We live during a time where anything and everything can be captured on camera ...
Kano’s mission to make coding and computer technology more accessible to individuals of all ages are most recently coming in the form of their Motion Sensor Kit, and this new kit is their simplest and cheapest way to teach people about coding.The Motion Sensor Kit comes with 30 step-by-step challenges that enable users to play games, make music, and more, all while teaching important lessons about coding and logic. (Photo via Kano)   The constant technological advancement of the mode ...
(Image credit Ohio State University)   Well, maybe not as fast as Wolverine, but it does start working to repair damaged tissue within less of a second after activation. Developed by researchers from Ohio State University, the new technology is known as TNT (Tissue Nano-transfection) is able to generate any cell type within a patient’s own body to repair damaged tissue or even restore the function of aging organs, blood vessels, and nerve cells.   The researchers have found that ...
In this post I'm going to look at the effect of inductance in the output circuit that the load is controlling.   Although you may not be specifically driving an inductor, the leads that you use have some inductance and this will have some effect on the the performance and stability. Why might the inductance have an effect? Although it's not inside the loop, the current in the circuit also passes through the sense resistor and that is inside the loop.   For this simulation I've placed ...
In this post, I want to look at the circuit as a servo loop.   At this point I probably need to throw in a bit of theory (which I don't understand all that well). This is going to be fast and furious and won't cover the ground in the way that an expensive textbook would (but then I'm not qualified to write a textbook). Servo loops can be numbered according to type. A type 0 loop (a regulator) simply generates an error term which is the difference between the desired output and the current ...
I was previously doing these posts as part of Jan Cumps' WIP Programmable Electronic Load  blog, but that's now so extensive it's getting quite cumbersome to work with and, since this is all of fairly general interest, I thought I'd carry on with separate blogs rather than pile everything into the one container. This way it will be possible to have comments with each piece, rather than them getting tangled up in the way they do with a very long blog, and it will keep them from confusing all ...
The device is compatible with iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches without the need for an app to operate, ultimately providing an easy, high-quality experience. The new cochlear implant from Apple and Cochlear is the smallest and lightest ever made. (All photos via Cochlear)   Cochlear, an Australian-based company that has helped more than 450,000 people around the world, in over 100 countries, to be able to hear. Apple, one of the largest companies on the planet that really doesn’t nee ...
Nuviz is a small device that attaches itself to your helmet and projects a HUD just out of sight. This little device even has a camera for taking picture and video (Photo via Nuviz)   I was sitting around thinking up ideas for the IoT on Wheels design challenge when I thought a HUD would be cool. Doing some research, this HUD came up fist. It’s good inspiration.   Riding around town on a scooter, moped, or motorcycle can be a thrilling experience. And in the latter case, it mak ...
