[Michael Horne] recently shared his thoughts on the RedBoard+, a motor controller board for the Raspberry Pi aimed at robotic applications. His short version for busy people is: if you’re at all into robotics, get one because it’s fantastic. At heart the RedBoard+ is a motor controller, but it’s packed with I/O and features that […]

This was a cartridge that plugged into a Super Nintendo, and using proprietary Lock-On technology, you could play Game Boy games on the big screen. Inside the Super Game Boy was the guts […]
[Tony] built a high-efficiency power supply for Nixie tube projects. But that’s not what this post is about, really. As you read through [Tony]’s extremely detailed post on Hackaday.io, you’ll be reading through an object lesson in electronic design that covers the entire process, from the initial concept – a really nice, reliable 170 V […]
You can now make flexible circuit boards of unlimited length. Trackwise was contracted out for making a wiring harness for the wing of a UAV and managed to ship a 26 meter long flexible printed circuit board. This is an interesting application of the technology — UAVs are very weight sensitive and wiring harnesses are […]
Join us Wednesday at noon Pacific time for the From Software to Tindie Hack Chat! Brian Lough has followed a roundabout but probably not unusual route to the hardware hacking scene. Educated in Electronic and Computer Engineering, Brian is a software developer by trade who became enamored of Arduino development when the ESP8266 hit the market. […]
