This week we released our open source and open hardware project based on Sming on Kickstarter. The project is called U:Kit and it is a smart smoke and motion sensor kit that will be released as open software, open hardware and open 3d models. Make sure to check the project and support it, if you like it.
Introduction The available RAM for applications on the ESP8266 microcontroller is roughly 35-40 kilobytes (KB). Which is not much and every KB is quite precious. Below you will learn how to gain additional RAM in your application with a simple trick. The trick is working only for constant data and is needed if you are […]
We were lucky to get one of those Intel Edison SoC + maker boards and compile some stuff for it. Setting up the compilation environment can be difficult task for beginner. That’s why there is dev-launcher script that can help you compile stuff inside Eclipse. But if you want to cross-compile directly from the command […]
Seems like the guys from Stanford University were also developing small devices, the size of an ant, that are capable of radio communication without having a battery. The idea is similar to what the guys from Washington did. But the implementation seems different. Much of the infrastructure needed to enable us to control sensors and […]
You may already heard that there is a way to harvest energy from radio signals which are abundant in our modern world(TV signal, radio, mobile phone cells, etc). But that harvested energy is not enough to emit WiFI signals. The engineers from the University of Washington have figured out a way to communicate by reflecting those signals, thus […]
The Era Of Home Automation is coming and we are here to keep you informed about it. The Era of Home Automation and Internet Of Things(IoT) is still on its way. Since decades. You may ask yourself why it takes so long. Mainly due to the following reasons. The first is price. At the moment most […]
