The Thermal Tweeter Twitter printer how-to is up at Instructables.
Free video chat by Ustream 4000 people viewed the Thermal Tweeter on USTREAM since it went online yesterday, but there’s only a few meters of Tweets. There’s also some new tweets that don’t show up in a public search (privacy settings?). Help us make it rain, for the sake of debugging of course, and get […]
Free video chat by Ustream Send a Tweet to @dangerousproto and watch it print live on the USTREAM feed. Thermal Tweeter is hacked together from a SparkFun thermal printer and the web platform internet development board. No computers are used to query twitter or run the printer, this is a 100% stand-alone Twitter appliance. This […]
As promised in the review of the Sure WiFi board , a new WIFI web platform/server design is up for review in the forum. The purpose of this board is to control a digital DSLR camera through a webpage. The device is connected by a 802.11b network, allowing lots of freedom (when in range of […]
megabug replaced the 1Mbit EEPROM storage chip on the web platform with a 32Mbit (4MB) flash rom chip. Support is already available in the Microchip TCP/IP stack, so all you need to do is swap the chip and enable a few options in the configuration file Via the forum.
megabug posted an update on the web server on a business card: I am using my own board, but changed the code to fit the Web platform! My board is based on an old board from Ian, which was posted on hackaday.com but now with SMD Ethernet jack, dsPIC33FJ and other changes. ;) There are also […]
Over the last few weeks we did a massive cleanup and reorganization of our SVN code repository. Most projects now follow a standard directory structure. All our in-progress and stalled project files are now completely open and available to anyone. We also included all the manufacturing resources used to initiate production at Seeed, and the […]
voidptr posted a pico-OS in the project log forum: … it is an old silly pico-os (smaller than micro) of coroutines from one on my old projects. This is not fancy or complete like other os or RTOS but it is very small and can be useful… right now it is written for the PIC […]
Smartphone garage door opener: The tuxgraphics garage door opener is not limited to just one type of smartphone. It does not require the installation of an app. It works with any phone that has a web browser built-in. This garage door opener can be used from an iPhone, from an Android phone or any data […]
megabug posted an update on the web platform wireless home automation setup we covered earlier. The updated firmware has cleaner code, supports 3-state pin outputs (1, 0, hi-z). Get an assembled web platform for $40, including worldwide shipping. Via the forum.
Web platform v1.1 is back in stock at Seeed Studio. Get an assembled web platform for $40, including worldwide shipping.
Frank setup a internet-based temperature logger using the ThingSpeak contest data-logging service: This project uses a mbed microcontroller (LPC1768 ARM Cortex-M3) to monitor temperature using a DS1620 (digital temperature sensor IC), retrieve the time via NTP (network time protocol), and then log the current temperature to ThingSpeak along with a time-stamp. See a live graph […]
megabug used the web platform to control his wireless home automation system. Source code and part links are posted in the forum. Get an assembled web platform for $40, including worldwide shipping.
Web platform v1.1 is back in stock at Seeed Studio. There’s only a few extras right now, but another batch is on the way. Get an assembled web platform for $40, including worldwide shipping.
Markus Gritsch ported TinySID, a retro music file player, to the Web Platform. After successfully getting the TinySID library running on a PIC32 some time ago, I recently wondered, if the 16 bit MCUs from Microchip would also be fast enough to run the code. It turned out, that they are, at least the 40 […]
Inspired by the business card web server designed by our own Ian, Arthurb created a development system based around the pic 24f and enc28j60. With multiple daughter cards, for touch sense, serial lcd, temperature sensor, keyboard and monitor. this seems to be a versatile system for development. Via Hack a Day Get an assembled Web […]
M0KHZ wrote a C# Windows GUI to interface the web platform server over a network. Having great fun (and learning) from the Web Server platform – here on my bench for the last 4 days :), my thoughts are now turning towards a Windows GUI interface to toggle LED2, plus anything else I hang off […]
voidptr posted a tiny OS for the web platform: i dusted of an old silly pico-kernel (smaller than micro) of coroutines from one on my old projects. this is not fancy or complete like other os or RTOS but it is very small and can be useful… it think of that has a “DangerousPrototype” :o) […]
We’re releasing a stalled or abandoned prototype every few days while Seeed Studio is on break. We put a lot of work into these projects, but they’re still missing major components and testing. If an abandoned project sparks your interest, we may have PCBs to get you started. The goal of this project is to […]
masud and RonZ modified the web platform to have a static IP address. Get an assembled web platform for $40, including worldwide shipping. Also available at Australian Robotics. Web platform v1.1 is in stock and shipping now. Via the forum.
