There are several wireless scales on the market but none of them implements functions I like (or overpriced). This scale logger is attempt to build wireless scale from existing components like Carambola 2 and USB IR Toy and, of course, scale with remote indicator. Implemented purely on Python this project enables gathering, sending and displaying weight data to any service you like or even build one yourself.
Apple portable devices have nice feature to listen for music over the air. It is called AirPlay. On the other hand OpenWrt has tools (avahi and shairport) to play audio stream from your gadgets. It would be shame not to use Carambola2 board to play music from Apple device. Let’s build WiFi speaker for AirPlay devices.
Vieną vakarą kilo mintis pastatyti kamerą kur nors toliau su gražiais vaizdais. Prisiminiau Ventės rago ornitologinę stotį. Susiradau Internete kontaktus ir paskambinau. Vytautui idėja patiko. Pažadėjo duoti elektros ir Interneto. Praėjus keliom dienom nuvažiavom į vietą, kur pasitiko linksmas, šmaikštus, gerai nusiteikęs ir svetingas kolektyvas.
Logitech C920 is a wonderful webcam. It has good picture quality and hardware H.264 encoder. It can do real full HD streaming (1920×1080 @ 30fps). But this webcam lacks one feature – it has fixed lens which sometimes is not acceptable.
I had an old Russian lens (MTO-500) laying around for a long time. Tried using it on DSLR, but because of lack of image quality I refused this idea. Today I mounted webcam on it. Because of smaller image sensor magnification is much larger in this conjunction.
Sometimes it’s overkill to use computer with 200W power consumption for 24/7 to do small task like upload picture from webcam to Dropbox every minute. In this article I will describe how save a lot of Watts and to have Carambola on Cloud!
