The most interesting thing here is their “Learning System” which includes 10 hours worth of electronics-related learning materials in the form of video-based tutorials which can be used in conjunction with their kits.
More information about the project can be found on their campaign page.
The python script I written to control the arm is based on his with a few minor amendments. Mainly, error handing for keyboard interrupts and mapping of the commands to more easily remembered versions in a dictionary.
The script and documentation are available from Github.
Thanks to Tucker Merrick for submitting this one: The Picsu, the brainchild of Tucker’s brother, is a power supply which is small enough to fit in the drive bay of a standard PC tower case and features a serial port that allows you to control the voltage and current output by the supply via your favourite terminal application.
I have to say, this is a great idea for those of us (like me) who have limited desk space. These would also be a good idea for school/college E.E labs.
The Kickstarter project page for this can be found here. At the time this was written, they has $932 raised. Any help the wider community could give here would be very much appreciated.
