A cool low-cost LIDAR on Kickstarter!

Some great achievement in robotics…

Some great achievement in robotics with a Bulgarian being involved!

IoT with ESP8266

I’ve been playing around with the $4 esp8266 (Wifi & Lua) controller…


I’ve got bunch of sensors and servos to work and I’ve also hooked it up to an Android app using Blync

Next, I will use a more serious framework OpenHab

We’ve neglected this place for too long! It’s time to reboot! After spending some time recently with @jyonkov in California, we decided to revive this thing!

I don’t know if anyone read this but here it is something that I’ve been playing with for while: http://tinusaur.wordpress.com it’s a small board with Atmel ATtiny85 that could fit may small project that need controlling.

I know that some of you here still know how to handle a soldering iron! 😉

I was thinking again that it would be cool to motivate people to translate the blog so when someone posts something interesting there is a greater chance that it will be translated to other languages. I’m positive that we can find support for Bulgarian, French and Japanese so I’ve asked Yuka to translate some posts to Japanese. While doing so initially we used Google spreadsheets and ImportFeed and GoogleTranslate functions, than i thought that it would be nice if we use WPML plug-in so i found a free PHP hosting http://www.justfree.com and installed WPMU but failed to install WPML. Has anyone had better luck with multilingual WP ?
