This blog was home for interesting things like Touch probe, Raspberry Pi case, C920 webcam rework kit, high sensitivity USB camera and few other. I think it is time to leave it for other random notes and ideas and move products to new and better place. Let me present Kurokesu. This will be home and e-store for all future products.

IMG_4710_tStarting new project – LP0018D – best in the class digitizing touch probe/edge finder. After long research and many adjustments finally preparation is complete. Time to review first samples. Like all of my previous projects it is funded completely from my pocket, so should be reasonably priced and I am not rushed by crowdfunding bull*hit.

Gp027304.mp4_045126_I was always fascinated by lightning. Long time ago, being a teenager I shoot lightning strikes many times with some degree of success. At that time I was using my dad’s old Zenit camera. While lightnings are always the same, equipment advances very rapidly. Today I will talk about spotting interesting frames from video and detecting exact moment of strike using Python.

mosaic_04-00-00_tTo be short I will be talking about long term tethered time-lapse photography (it is also a good platform for construction camera). While final movie can be very short this kind of photography involves lots of planning and technical skills. During long time time lapse project a lot of things can go wrong. Also prepare to ruin your DSLR if you are using one.

mqttorgMQTT is a extremely lightweight machine-to-machine connectivity protocol. If you have Internet connected things talking to each other, you should consider MQTT as the best choice.

RPI2_tI was impressed by freshly released Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. It has even larger possibilities than previous versions because of it’s quad-core higher speed BCM2836 ARMv7 CPU and twice larger RAM. Also I was very happy that mechanical layout was almost identical to Raspberry Pi Model B+, which means no need to redesign existing enclosure.

vlcsnap-2014-12-10-20h30m32s255_tThis is my second trip to China and I could not resist dedicating a post about it. China is a very beautiful and warm country. Also this is land of “Made in China”, so it is also a land of many many manufacturers. Few days for wandering around and finding out about this country from inside is very little. But I am glad that I was able to go there anyway. It was fantastic experience for me. I would definitely like to stay there for a longer time.
