EVB: Replace the brain of your LEGO® EV3 with BeagleBone

EVB is a shield (or called cape) for Beaglebone Black (BBB). It fully support LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 system, either the hardware and software! EVB is compatible with all LEGO® sensors just like the EV3 Brick, 100% compatible! It allows the EV3 VM to be run on the Beaglebone Black. What powerful is, with extra Sensor Board in EVB system, you can do more! This means you can add more sensors to your LEGO® system... (From $59 and end Jan 26)

 

X PlusOne: Your Ultimate Hover + Speed Aerial Camera Drone

The X PlusOne takes off, hovers, and lands like a traditional quadcopter, but that's where the similarities with a multi-rotor stop.  The key differentiator is this: In place of the quadcopter frame is an upward facing wing.  This allows the X PlusOne to pitch over 90 degrees and fly nose-first at over 60 mph (100 km/h), twice as fast as a traditional quadcopter!  Flight control is handled by varying motor speed to provide pitch, roll, and yaw control, even in forward flight mode.  There are no traditional flight control surfaces on the X PlusOne.  Thereby saving weight and complexity and ensuring the overall design remains clean and efficient... ($479 for drone and camera. Ends Jan 14)

 

The ProtoCam+: An easy way to build projects and prototypes around your Raspberry Pi Camera Module with your A+ and B+ Raspberry Pi

The ProtoCam+ is a 'breadboard style' prototyping board that holds your Raspberry Pi Camera Module inside the PCB itself, which lets you solder components around the camera lens... ($15 USD. Ends Jan 27)

 

Tektyte: LogIT Specialised Circuit Testers

The LogIT Series consists of two unique circuit measurement tools which both display accurate readings of voltage, current, and power while also simultaneously logging all measurement data to a MicroSD card and/or PC... ($100 USD. Feb 14 2015)

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
