New Arduino Boards
There's been a lot of talk about Arduino's new development boards, the new UNO which is the update to the Duemilanove and the new Mega which features a new microcontroller. Let's take a look at some of the new features...
Android 7" Touch PC
Android is becoming more and more popular as the OS of choice for cellphones, tablets, netbooks, and many more devices. The application base is growing daily and users are rapidly developing platforms that can control many aspects of their modern lives.
Check out these awesome mini PC's that come preloaded with Android, WiFi, USB connectors and a generous 7" touch screen - and did I mention that there's an Arduino toolkit available?
Prototyping Just Got Easier
Protoplastic is a revolutionary thermoplastic, set to have a major impact on model making and prototyping. When formed, it has all the characteristics of a tough ‘engineering’ material yet it fuses and becomes easily mouldable at just 62°C. It can be heated with hot water or a hair dryer and moulded by hand to create prototypes and solve manufacturing problems currently outside the capacity of other materials. Protoplastic can be remelted and used over and over again
Netduino Development Boards
Love Arduino boards but wish they had a more powerful microcontroller? Wish they could be programmed using the .NET Framework?
Stop wishing! Netduino is here....
IR Trigger Module
This is a great, simple to use infra-red trigger that senses up to 800mm. Sensitivity is adjusted by a small screw at the back of the device which caters for 30mm to 800mm. An LED indicates digital output
