We had the pleasure to sponsor a very interesting school project that targeted a real-world problem. These two smart students developped their own connected lock and are sharing today the story of their project. Who are we? We are Nathan Hampton and Quinn Sulejmani. Two Engineering Design and Development students at […]

Learn how to build your own IoT temperature logger with data uploaded to the cloud. This project uses itbrainpower.net dual SIM full-size GSM shield [a-gsmII] for data transmission (or itbrainpower.net dual SIM full-size GSM GNSS shield [b-gsmgnss]) and Dallas/Maxim 18B20 1wire temperature sensor. Required time: 30-45 minutes – hardware side 30-60 […]

Nigel Ackland had the misfortune of losing his hand in an accident. He is now the proud owner (and tester) of a BeBionic3 robot hand.  This bionic prosthesis senses the electrical activity in his arm muscles and activates gripping or wrist rotating actions accordingly, allowing the user to move the hand “naturally”. As the […]

Robots just gained a new sense: touch! Researchers from the University of Southern California, developed a sensitive robot finger that is filled with fluid and features a fingerprint just as human fingers do, they call it Biotac. As shown in the video below, they are using the this technology to develop texture sensing and other interesting applications that could be used in prosthetic in the future. This is […]
