I read a lot of tuts about circle management etc. Started over a few times (bad habit), but it didn’t really worked out for me.I tried to get a number of people interested in Google+ by demonstrating it on the screen. I noticed how confused they were.So I started over with my circle management again, now with a different approach. I took all my interests in my daily live, converted them into interest circles. When I demonstrate Google+ to people now, I don’t see those confused looks anymore, must done something right here.Most Google+ users keep there circle management for themselves (I noticed). I’m going to do the opposite here, I’m gonna share more than 40 interest circles, handpicked (except the Galaxy Nexus circle and the Chromebook circle, these are started by others shared circles).2012-02-28 22:25:3698000CC G+

DrugPrinter: print any drug instantly #3DxMedicine #3DThursday #3DPrinting
http://adafru.it/b110823

Check out this journal paper proposing a 3D-printer-style machine designed to print any drug instantly, at the chemical level, taking its inspiration from a Chinese egg-cake oven (above). DrugPrinter: print any drug instantly:

In drug discovery, de novo potent leads need to be synthesized for bioassay experiments in a very short time. Here, a protocol using DrugPrinter to print out any compound in just one step is proposed. The de novo compound could be designed by cloud computing big data. The computing systems could then search the optimal synthesis condition for each bond–bond interaction from databases. The compound would then be fabricated by many tiny reactors in one step. This type of fast, precise, without byproduct,r... more »

Students solve old problem with new ketchup cap #3DThursday #3DPrinting
http://adafru.it/b110603

Students solve old problem with new ketchup cap:

High school seniors Tyler Richards and Jonathan Thompson have spent a lot of time thinking about ketchup.

As students in the Project Lead the Way program at North Liberty High School, Richards and Thompson have researched and developed a bottle cap that prevents that first squirt of ketchup from being a watery mess.

Nintendo Style Case for the Raspberry Pi   #3DThursday #3DPrinting  
http://adafru.it/djj

Thingiverse user tastic007 uploaded an awesome Raspberry Pi case that makes you say, “Why didn’t I think of that?”. Inspired by the classic Nintendo entertainment system, He designed a 3-piece design that snap fits together. The case was modeled in Tinkercad and holds the Raspberry Pi Model B. The two-color flap is a great example of using the pause-to-change-filament feature on the makerbot replicator. Tastic007 wrote up a detailed guide on the build. The raspberry pi cartridge sticker on the SD card is a great finishing touch. It’s only missing the two buttons for power and reset. An LED next to the power button would make a great remix for anyone daring enough to print this project.

This case was designed specifically in creating a RetroPie gaming system, which combinesa number ... more »

What Would Don Draper Make With a 3-D Printer? #3DThursday #3DPrinting
http://adafru.it/dji

Here are a bunch of the user-suggested ideas made into sculptural form for the Suntory 3D-Printing + Whiskey ice projects:

From Wired:

“There are 3-D things, 3-D printers, and 3-D projection everywhere but none of it seems really useful,” says TBWA Executive Creative Director Kazoo Sato. “We wanted to create something meaningful.”

Each sculpture started as a block of ice nearly six inches wide and was painstakingly carved over a period of hours using a CNC router inside a 19 °F freezer/studio. A thick bit roughed out the form, a thin tip went for a second pass to bring out the details, and the cube was flipped so the process could be repeated. Each cube took between one and six hours of milling and some of the more complex designs,like the... more »

This Jacket Heated by Arduino #WearableWednesday
http://adafru.it/b110528

A group of physical computing students in Italy have created a stylish jacket with heat functionality. The zipper activates a heating unit in the collar, while capacitive sensors initiate heaters in the pockets. The jacket uses an Arduino Uno and comes complete with IKEA-like instructions on the inside flap. We actually think the instructions are a nice touch as they transcend any language, making this product ready to go for international sales.

LED Bike Helmet Gets Shouts #WearableWednesday
http://adafru.it/b110483

K-Fai Steele started to get concerned about riding her bike without a helmet as she heard more stories about head injuries. However, the thought of having the typical helmet just seemed like a downer. Luckily she stumbled across our LED Helmet tutorial that fit her fashion needs.

I feel like when you put a helmet on, you lose the cool factor, but with this helmet, I get a lot of shouts from people when I’m riding.

K-Fai is no stranger to technology, as she heads up a program with the Philadelphia Library called Maker Jawn — an initiative which is turning teens into makers at local library branches. So, needless to say, she is comfortable with a soldering iron and programming. In fact, the helmet is another example project she can show off and everyone loves LEDs. She feels the helmet,whi... more »

Bionics pioneer Hugh Herr’s prosthetic ankle mimics the power and control of its biological counterpart
http://adafru.it/b110103

MIT News has a great profile on Hugh Herr and his incredible work on bionics.

These days, Hugh Herr, an associate professor of media arts and sciences at MIT, gets about 100 emails daily from people across the world interested in his bionic limbs.

Messages pour in from amputees seeking prostheses and from media outlets pursuing interviews. Then there are students looking to join Herr’s research group. “The technology inspires young people to get into the field, which is wonderful,” Herr says.

It’s a mark of the groundbreaking work Herr has done at the MIT Media Lab over the past two decades. An amputee himself, Herr has been designing (and wearing) bionic leg prostheses that, he says, “emulate nature” —mimicking the f... more »

The group cleverly named their jacket Odisseo, the Italian name for Odysseus.  Just as Odisseo is the hero of the Trojan war, this jacket is the hero of daily life. Considering the latest in temperature swings, this jacket may continue to be a hero in spring. Thinking about heating up your own wearable? You might want to look at our electric heating pad.

A Collection of Comic Maps #arttuesday
http://adafru.it/dj2

Last week, Hyperallergic highlighted the great work being done on the blog Comic Cartography, which has an extensive catalogue of graphics and maps taken from comics. Hyperallergic’s Jillian Steinhauer writes about the importance of these maps in the fictional world building of the comic book genre:

Comics are an especially apt medium for this type of construction, since, well, they’re visual. Diagrams and maps in comics can do different kinds of work: they can be used as exposition, to help readers get their bearings in a story, or to create a mood or feeling, or simply as a prop. They’re not even necessarily made-up — Jason Lutes’s Berlin is a series of fictional stories set in a historical place.

This is Why Kids Need to Learn to Code #makereducation
http://adafru.it/b109639

Doug Belshaw emphasizes some of the key reasons why coding is an important skill for kids to learn, from DMLcentral.

Why Is Coding Important?

Now that we’ve defined coding as the ability to read and write a machine language and think computationally, it’s worth turning to the ‘so what?’ question. Why do we need the general population to be able to do this? Why not leave it to a subset of very highly-specialised individuals and teams who can do this on our behalf? After all, we need roads and buildings but we don’t require kids to learn civil engineering and architecture.

Leaving to one side the top-down argument that it’s ‘good for the economy’, I’d argue that there’s at least three important reasons why kids should learn to code: They are:problem-solving, (d... more »

Teach kids how colors are made with the color machine
http://adafru.it/b109524

The Color Machine, from the Ghidini Guerrini team, can teach your kids about RGB color coding, via the Arduino Blog

The Color Machine (La macchina dei colori, in Italian language) is a tool to teach children about the use and the operation of RGB color coding, which is used in all digital devices (TVs, smartphones, computers, etc.). Using 3 knobs you can increase the percentages of red, green and blue separately, and the LED strip at the top of the machine lights up consistently with the color mix choosen. In this way approximately 16 million of colors can be generated.

The Color Machine has 4 different operating modes: “let’s create colors”, “guess the color”, “the names of the colors” and “demo”. Under the guidance of a teacher, children can play and learn at thesame time to recr... more »

Interior Design: Ever wondered what a golf ball looks like when you cut it in half?
http://adafru.it/b110370

Photographer James Friedman posted pictures from this awesome project entitled Interior Design. There’s something oddly satisfying about these, no?

Curiosity led me to cut my collection of golf balls in half to see what the cores looked like. To my surprise, what I found inside inspired me to consider that I could discover, in the unlikeliest of places, elegant formal qualities and surprising metaphorical possibilities. Interior Design has moved me to be enthusiastic about abstraction, an exciting corollary to my work as a documentary photographer.

Incidentally, I do not play golf.

Adorable Pixar Lamp Costume
http://adafru.it/b110387

The Pixar lamp is iconic. Most of us have seen the little guy hopping into place before several of their films. Instructables user darcy3529 made the lamp outfit for her granddaughter from a coverall and mat board with dowels. The build looks rather affordable and straightforward. Here’s how she completed the frame:

The frame/cage for the costume is made from mat board that I covered with fabric. There are fabric covered dowels that go between the 2 matching side frames. The pieces were all glued together using a strong silicone glue. Then furniture slides were added to look like nuts. The frame slides over the head and rests on the shoulders.

The base is a dollar store platter that has a hole cut in the bottom. I flipped the platter bottom side up and covered with fabric. There is a fabric collar glued rot... more »

Crazy futuristic robot has six legs but can also transform into a ball
http://adafru.it/diX

Laughing Squid made this interesting post on a six-legged robot that can turn into a ball.

As you can see, the sphere sections are reinforced using some T-shaped aluminium brackets for supporting and holding the plastic (PC) sphere sections. This made a huge difference when it comes to rigidity. On MKI I struggled with the fact that the plastic sphere section was to flexible and I had to reinforce the edges with ribs. The problem was the ribs kept getting loose (the PC glue wouldn’t hold), so I had to do even more improvements. On MKII the ribs isn’t really needed, simply because of the aluminium brackets that is shaped to match the inner part of each sphere section perfectly. I did spend some hours in the workshop fine-tuning the bending tool to make the bracket fit.

A New Book on the 2,000-Year History of GPS Tracking
http://adafru.it/b109619

Bret Brownell at Mother Jones highlights some of the key moments from You Are Here: From the Compass to GPS, the History and Future of How We Find Ourselves, a new book on the history of GPS tracking by Hiawatha Bray.

Boston Globe technology writer Hiawatha Bray recalls the moment that inspired him to write his new book, You Are Here: From the Compass to GPS, the History and Future of How We Find Ourselves. “I got a phone around 2003 or so,” he says. “And when you turned the phone on—it was a Verizon dumb phone, it wasn’t anything fancy—it said ‘GPS’. And I said, ‘GPS? There’s GPS in my phone?’” He asked around and discovered that yes, there was GPS in his phone, due to a 1994 FCC ruling. At the time, cellphone usage was increasing rapidly, but 911 and other emergencyresponders could only a... more »

MIT’s social computing group wants to initiate social change via data visualization at the rate of a map a day
http://adafru.it/diT

Fast Company has a great piece on the latest project from MIT’s social computing group.

The little things that make an otherwise cramped-and-concrete urban life worthwhile (green space, bike lanes, coffee shops) are exactly what the You Are Here project is about.

Over the next two and a half years, MIT Media Lab professor Sep Kamvar will lead a team of computer scientists, artists, architects, urban planners, designers, and educators to draw 10,000 maps–that’s 100 different cities, rendered 100 times each–in hopes of illuminating the details that make cities great. Or, in some cases, not so great.

“I realized that whenever I look at a map, it just tells me the streets and the buildings, and that’s such asmall fractio... more »

Announcing a new book – Make: Getting Started with Adafruit Trinket by +Mike Barela published by +MAKE 
https://www.adafruit.com/product/1838

Trinket is a great microcontroller – it provides much of the power you might use in an Arduino application in a smaller size and lower cost. This got me started building Trinket-based projects (rather easily which was great). When a discussion of a book was brought up, I thought it would be a natural. Not just because a number of project tutorials had been written (which helps). Trinket is a bit different from other microcontrollers, from the software, driver, libraries, and what might be encountered on use. Nearly all of the benefits and “gotchas” on Trinket have come out either through working on one or posting in the Adafruit forums. I thought a reference providing a “one stop” resource on Trinket’s use would be highly beneficial forboth new Makers... more »

Trinket powered geiger counter #trinket
http://adafru.it/b110224

Lately I have been messing around a bit with microprocessor powered geiger counters. One smart guy came up with the idea of generating high voltage using PWM signals from the microprocessor itself. With some additional external parts a HV supply and negative going pulse suitable for microprocessors is easy to make.

…The circuit works as follows: A ~1 Khz squarewave turns the MPSA44 high voltage transistor on and off, generating high voltage when the  inductors current is shut off. The voltage depends on the pulse width of the square wave which can be tweaked in software. The 1N4007 diode rectifies this voltage, and the HV cap removes most of the ripple on this voltage. The resistor limits current to the GM tube. The current pulses from the tube generate a voltage drop over the 100K resistor whichtu... more »

AMLGM Envisions Urban Alloy Tower Over Transportation Hub in NYC
http://adafru.it/b109630

AMLGM has developed a city redesign plan called “Urban Alloy,” which focuses on re-imagining the space around existing transportation hubs in the outer boroughs of NYC. Via designboom.

From AMLGM:

Living Concept:

The combination of escalating land prices and the acceleration of city migration have made urban renewal based modes of densification unfit for the contemporary city. Urban Alloy is the symbiotic re-purposing of the air rights above transportation corridors in New York. Urbanist’s have long touted the benefits of greater housing density near public transportation hubs – Urban Alloy proposes the advancement of this idea by locating the system directly on the intersections between surface and elevated train lines. We have chosen the intersection ofthe LIR... more »

First potentially habitable Earth-sized planet confirmed: It may have liquid water
http://adafru.it/b110003

The first Earth-sized exoplanet orbiting within the habitable zone of another star has been confirmed by observations with both the W. M. Keck Observatory and the Gemini Observatory. The initial discovery, made by NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope, is one of a handful of smaller planets found by Kepler and verified using large ground-based telescopes. It also confirms that Earth-sized planets do exist in the habitable zone of other stars.

“What makes this finding particularly compelling is that this Earth-sized planet, one of five orbiting this star, which is cooler than the Sun, resides in a temperate region where water could exist in liquid form,” says Elisa Quintana of the SETI Institute and NASA Ames Research Center who led the paper published in the currentissue... more »

The thinnest membrane technologically possible has been produced and it’s 100,000 times thinner than the diameter of a human hair.
http://adafru.it/b110009

Science Daily has the scoop on the latest version of super thin graphene.

A new nano-membrane made out of the ‘super material’ graphene is extremely light and breathable. Not only can this open the door to a new generation of functional waterproof clothing, but also to ultra-rapid filtration. The new membrane just produced is as thin as is technologically possible.

Researchers have produced a stable porous membrane that is thinner than a nanometre. This is a 100,000 times thinner than the diameter of a human hair. The membrane consists of two layers of the much exalted “super material” graphene, a two-dimensional film made of carbon atoms, on which the team of researchers, led by Professor Hyung GyuPark at t... more »
