Sandblaster is a variation on Blue Buggy remixing the original Cox International gas-powered sand buggy - scaled-down, converted to electric, and 3D printable! You can use it to explore obstacle avoidance, autonomous navigation, driverless vehicle design, or assisted Remote Control. Or… build in the morning and race in the afternoon!
Bring some delightful 8-bit flair to your Christmas tree (or any other holiday foliage) with this Super Mario star power-up, the Starduino! 3D print the custom-designed model, made to lovingly nestle a 16 LED NeoPixel ring and Arduino Gemma in its belly. Then, program the GEMMA with a super fancy blinky pattern of goodness and light.
Self balancing scooters (hoverboards) can make an imagine stabilizer camera rig that can be used to capture smooth, low angle shoots. Mounting a small camera to the body of the scooter can be challenging because the center part of the board twists while in operation. With a 3D printed adapter, we can add clamp a camera mount to the middle of the board without obstructing riding or interfering with the position of the camera mount.
Livestream Studio is an incredibly robust streaming software. Regular keyboards and mice work, but for fast action and ease of use, you can't beat a dedicated piece of switching hardware with arcade buttons. Bluetooth and LiPo-battery powered, have access to everything you need to get your show switching with gusto.
Once upon a time a makers preferred enclosure for an electronic project was the famous Altoids Mint or Gum tin box. These days we 3-D print everything so it's time to update the Minty Boost with a new version. Updated electronics, newer batteries, and a 3-D printed box and what do you call it? Printy Boost!
Persistence of vision (POV) is the illusion of a solid image where there is none — a task for which LEDs and microcontrollers are a natural fit. Poi is a performance art of spinning tethered weights. Some of the most dramatic performances use fire poi! We sought to create something with that level of “wow,” but safer and usable indoors or out. And so these “Genesis” POV-poi were born.
