This project for Make shows how to use energy harvesting sensors with a Raspberry Pi to make a doorbell that's perfect for parties.
Getting Started with Intel Galileo, developed in collaboration with the Intel Galileo team, and in consultation with members of the Arduino team, this is the definitive introduction to Intel's new board for makers.
This is a custom microblogging platform and Glassware client to log interesting reactions to Google Glass. Reactions can be dictated into the device and they're posted instantly to the site.
The Dynamic Bike Headlight is a Raspberry Pi-based bike headlight which displays dynamic information about the cyclist's ride in the beam on the ground in front of them.
My first book, Getting Started with Raspberry Pi, published by Maker Media about how to get started with the $35 embedded Linux development board.
Bird on a Wire is a projected interactive display created for a pair of storefront windows in Manhattan. By calling a number a passerby can set birds perched on telephone wires into motion while listening to their flocking sounds on a cellphone.
Tasked with generating a double-take on the streets of New York City, Ben Light and I created this sidewalk intervention by turning a parking sign into a playground pastime.
The Nerdy Derby is a no-rules miniature car building and racing competition inspired by the Cub Scouts' Pinewood Derby. With no restrictions on the size of the cars or materials participants can use, the Nerdy Derby rewards creativity, cleverness and ingenuity.
A wireless, Internet-connected gum ball machine that dispenses a gum ball the moment someone checks in on Foursquare, rewarding them for their check in.
The Descriptive Camera is a prototype camera that works a lot like a regular camera—point it at subject and press the shutter button to capture the scene. However, instead of producing an image, it uses crowd sourcing to output a text description of the scene.
For a retail window display in Times Square, I developed and deployed a hand sensor which actuates an "80% off" peep show.
Fade Away performs a twitter search for the term “fade away” and uses an ultra violet laser diode to write these tweets on a phosphorescent surface. Each character has been programmed into an Arduino microcontroller, which controls the servo motors and the laser.
A twice monthly live-streaming web show that I co-produced and hosted for MAKE Magazine.
Arduino-based solution to mute the TV so that you don’t have to hear about Donald Trump’s feud with whomever or Charlie Sheen’s most recent rant.
I overuse the word "awesome," so I used a little bit of hardware to help solve my problem.
A quick hack for an old keyboard to covert it into hands-free shortcut for commonly-keyed commands.
