This rotary phone features a built-in Raspberry Pi that communicates with
radiooooo.com (a musical time machine) and an Arduino working behind the map to control the selection of the country. Just pick up the phone, choose a country and a decade, and listen to some great music! How does it work?The Raspberry Pi:Plays music through radiooooo.comDetects when the handset is picked up/put downDetects the numbers that are dialled inThe Arduino:Detects which country is selected on the map (via jack connectors)Sends the info to the Raspberry Pi over serialWe saw this project on hackster.io and loved how maker Caroline Buttet dug into the finer detail of an old-fashioned rotary phone’s pick-up/put-down mechanism, as well as how the phone knows which numbers you’re dialling. She goes into more detail about that aspect in the second build video, above.Some countries have a jack pin – this is how you select the m…

Browse through all that’s new here!NEW PRODUCTS THIS WEEKRugged Panel Mount Fingerprint Sensor with Bi-Color LED Ring – R503: Secure your project with biometrics – this all-in-one optical fingerprint sensor will make adding fingerprint detection and verification super simple. It even has an LED ring built around the detection pad, which can be set to red, blue or purple (as well as some fading/blinking effects) for a great user experience.These modules are typically used in safes – there’s a high powered DSP chip that does the image rendering, calculation, feature-finding, and searching. Connect to any microcontroller or system with TTL serial, and send packets of data to take photos, detect prints, hash, and search. You can also enroll new fingers directly – up to 200 fingerprints can be stored in the onboard FLASH memory.Read moreLR44 / AG13 1.…

Deep learning cat prey detector

We’ve all been able to check on our kitties’ outdoor activities for a while now, thanks to motion-activated cameras. And
the internet’s favourite cat flap even live-tweets when it senses paws through the door. “Did you already make dinner? I stopped on the way home to pick this up for you.” But what’s eluded us “owners” of felines up until now is the ability to stop our furry companions from bringing home mauled presents we neither want nor asked for.A cat flap bouncer powered by deep learningNow this Raspberry Pi–powered machine learning build, shared by reddit user u/eee_bume, can help us out: at its heart, there’s a convolutional neural network cascade that detects whether a cat is trying to enter a cat flap with something in its maw. (No word from the creators on how many half-consumed rodents the makers had to dispose of while training the machine learning model.)The neural network first detects th…

DaveMakesStuff shared this project on Thingiverse!Cubes are boring. Octahedrons and tetrahedrons are a much more interesting way to tile 3D space.The octahedrons are printed in two parts. Glue the flat sides together.Octohedrons and tetrahedrons tile 3D at a ratio of one octohedron for every two tetrahedrons.These files are designed with zero tolerance between the nubs and holes to ensure a tight fit. Print with a 0.4 mm nozzle at 0.1 mm layer height for best results, and expect to do a bit of post-print filing and trimming for the perfect fit.Download files: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4345727

Now that we are all wearing masks all day, ear protectors can really help with comfort. Check this one out! shared by rhattie on Thingiverse:My take on a 3D printed ear protector, designed for maximum comfort. Made out of TPU to gently wrap around the back of the wearer’s head. Specifically designed not to have any hard surfaces or sharp points.There are two versions of this design:V2 is the current version, which can be printed in under an hour, and has been tested with 95A TPU.V1 is a much thicker version, which may work better for softer materials (e.g. TPE). I would not recommend printing this unless you find that V2 is too flexible.Download the files and learn more

AI Contributing to Better Accuracy and Precision in Weather Forecasting

By AI Trends StaffTraditional models of weather forecasting are based on statistical measures based on data collected from deep space satellites, such as NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory, weather balloons, radar systems, and sometimes from IoT-based sensors. Today, AI is finding a role in weather forecasting with machine learning being employed to process more complex data in less time, with the hope of improving accuracy.For example, the Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) site from NOAA offers a range of data sets for use by researchers, from temperature and precipitation data to wave heights, according to a recent account in Analytics Insight.  The site offers vast data sets relayed from weather satellites, relay stations, and radiosondes to help deliver short-term weather forecasts or long-term climate predictions.Besides machine learning, other AI techniques for weather predictions include Artificial Ne…

Create Snapshots From Any Block Storage Using EBS Direct APIs

Image
I am excited to announce you can now create Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) snapshots from any block storage data, such as on-premises volumes, volumes from another cloud provider, existing block data stored on Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), or even your own laptop :-)AWS customers using the cloud for disaster recovery of on-premises infrastructure all have the same question: how can I transfer my on-premises volume data to the cloud efficiently and at low cost? You usually create temporary Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances, attach Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volumes, transfer the data at block level from on-premises to these new Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volumes, take a snapshot of every EBS volumes created and tear-down the temporary infrastructure. Some of you choose to use CloudEndure to simplify this process. Or maybe you just gave up and did not copy your on-premises volumes to the cloud because of the complexity.To simplify this, we are announcing t…

AWS IoT SiteWise – Now Generally Available

Image
At AWS re:Invent 2018, we announced AWS IoT SiteWise in preview which is a fully managed AWS IoT service that you can use to collect, organize, and analyze data from industrial equipment at scale.Getting performance metrics from industrial equipment is challenging because data is often locked into proprietary on-premises data stores and typically requires specialized expertise to retrieve and place in a format that is useful for analysis. AWS IoT SiteWise simplifies this process by providing software running on a gateway that resides in your facilities and automates the process of collecting and organizing industrial equipment data.With AWS IoT SiteWise, you can easily monitor equipment across your industrial facilities to identify waste, such as breakdown of equipment and processes, production inefficiencies, and defects in products.Last year at AWS re:Invent 2019, a bunch of new features were launched including SiteWise Monitor. Today, I am excited to announce AWS IoT SiteWise is no…
