Arthur C Clarke once famously said, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
Recently, a family trip to Great Wolf Lodge proved this out as the MagiQuest game provides the look and feel of magic with RFID, IoT, and creativity.
As a data and gadget geek, I could not resist pointing this out.
With Windows 10 IoT Core, you can build devices to make a better world not just for people, but also our furry friends .
Here’s a project on how to build a Pet Recognition Door by connecting a webcam, infrared motion sensor, servo motors, and OpenCV facial recognition on a Minnowboard Max running Windows IoT Core.
This Pet Recognition Door will let your pet come and go, while keeping unwelcome critters from paying you an unexpected visit. Are you feline ready to start creating?
Here’s a promo video for Alexa Smart Home development.
It looks intriguing and Alexa auch versteht deutsch. (also understands German).
It’s the latest tech in efficient lighting and a staple of many IoT projects, but how do LEDs work?
In this video by Filmmaker IQ, learn the science behind the Light Emitting Diode and basic concepts on how to wire up simple DIY LED circuits.
The main focus of the channel is for filmmakers, so expect a robust discussion of videography and photography as well. Consider this video a two-fer.
Here’s an interesting look at recent security news, including news of a new IoT botnet that’s already infected millions of devices.
You may want to hold off on those smart home automation plans for now.
In this video posted by Coding Tech, Scott Hanselman delivers one of the best and personal demos — how a combined solution using technologies such as IoT devices, cloud platforms, and Machine Learning can come together to solve even the most complex problems.
From small mobile computers to vast data centers available at your command, it truly is a great time to be a developer.
Chris Penrose, the president of IoT solutions at AT&T, explains how IoT network standards can influence security.
The camera uses object detection (with OpenCV) to send you an email whenever it sees an intruder.
It also runs a webcam so you can view live video from the camera when you are away.
