Poll Results
  • The Thinking Cap - For when you have trouble focusing your thoughts while trying to get work done. Helps when your thoughts were so scattered. (6%)

    2/34
  • Size Matters Not - An R2D2 Story - a monumental icon regardless of its physical size - that has meaning for a large number of people - one of the most popular characters who has no speech. (6%)

    2/34
  • Jumbo LED -  Anyone can have an LED but who else has a Jumbo LED? (9%)

    3/34
  • Lego Darth Vader - Sometimes, it helps to have the boss looking over your shoulder (for accountability!), and just imagine if your boss was Darth Vader, and your job was writing code... (3%)

    1/34
  • Gremlin in a Gas Mask - Gremlin in a Gas Mask uses radio controlled servos for the head tilt and pan.  The gas mask is choreographed using an Arduino Nano controller, matrix LED eyes, and audio provided using a WTV020 module. (0%)

    0/34
  • ARBot #5 : The Final Working (after a fashion) System -  Having spent some time thinking about a possible activity for the Project14 Electronic Toys competition he decided to try and make some sort of augmented reality game. (3%)

    1/34
  • Easy Peasy Non-Contact Electricity Detector (Not a Metal Detector) - This easy peasy voltage detector doesn't bother about human contact which is one of the ultimate goal of this device. (0%)

  • Flipping Core Memory Bits Directly With a Magnetic Stylus - This is what happens when you become captivated by Electromagnetism! (6%)

    2/34
  • IOT Reflow Oven with Arduino MKR WiFi 1010  -  Soldering Surface Mount Devices (SMD) by hand is doable with large parts but the results are sometimes of lower quality and small parts are difficult.  An easy next step is to modify a toaster oven for use as a reflow oven. (6%)

    2/34
  • Vector Display GPU Project -  Lissajous curves have already been shown too many times on oscilloscopes, so he decided to solve ordinary differential equations in the FPGA. (6%)

    2/34
  • Mini Quadcopter - when he saw the "Month of Robots" theme, and looked at his parts bin, he found an old broken quadcopter, with one of the ESCs (electronic speed controllers) fried, a burnt out flight controller and a broken frame, which meant he had to design a 3D printed frame. (3%)

    1/34
  • The Trickle Charger - he learnt a lot from the printing and really was amazed at the turbine script as well as the way the support structures can be broken out. (9%)

    3/34
  • The Musical Box - This 18th-century toy survived until nowadays covering many different roles in the collective imagination: haunted musical boxes in the horror films, musical boxes as a symbol of childhood innocence, soundtrack in story flashbacks and more. But it is also a nice gift for younglings and adults as well an undoubtedly fascinating musical instrument. And at the same time, it is also fascinating for its robotic component, as a matter of fact, it is a mechanical automa. (3%)

    1/34
  • VidorScout - The VidorScout is a mobile robot that self navigates using Sharp IR sensors and a VL53L0X Time of Flight Distance Sensor When a QR Code is Identified, the bot will stop and a Ref RGB LED on the back of the bot will flash indicating the code was found. (3%)

    1/34
  • BBAI Seein' Around Corners, Talkin', IoT Exploitin' Backup Car Cam with Onboard Vision AI - The Debian Linux operating system works great with the BBAI and provides many project opportunities on its own.  To take it further we wanted to make something original that would exploit all its capabilities:  GPIO Input/Output, PWM, I2C, Visual AI Classification with TIDL, Open CV for a GUI, Ad Hoc WiFi Streaming, IoT API communication, and Audio. (3%)

    1/34
  • Solar powered IoT device with Cayenne - IoT connected devices have to rely mostly on battery power for operation which may increase their cost and limit how effective they are on their intended use. There are also situations where reliable power is not easily accessible or simply put, could be an undesirable source of power, making battery life one of the biggest challenges to IoT solutions today. (3%)

    1/34
  • 5000W Dual Drive Electric Car - embark on a fun and exciting journey to modify and upgrade a 50W BMW i8 electric baby car, which originally could barely move when you sit on it, to a fast and furious 5000W dual drive electric car which can hit top speeds of 60km/h. (24%)

    8/34
  • PlanetCatcher: Building a World-Band Radio Receiver - This project is interesting to anyone wishing to play with analog circuitry such as amplifiers, filters, transformers, audio and RF, but also digital control, software and perhaps digital signal processing as a follow-on project. (9%)

    3/34
  • Measuring Nanoamps - If you want to do energy harvesting, you also want the powered device consume as little power as possible. (0%)
