We’re excited to be presenting at this year’s Open Hardware Summit with a talk titled ‘A Hyena Ate My Project! – Open Source Hardware in Wildlife Conservation Technology’
“… the BoomBox system went on to gather unprecedently thorough data…” Our BoomBox collaboration with Dr. Meredith Palmer was featured as part of WildLabs #Tech4Wildlife Photo Challenge.
How Do I Get Started with Arduino? Here’s the online introduction to the Build Your Own Data Logger tutorial series plus Q&A we did as part of Season 1 of Tech Tutors series on WildLabs. This session kicks off the more in-depth course. Share via:
Freakduino, FreakUSB boards, software and tutorials are here
If you’ve been visiting Freaklabs for a while, you’ll notice some changes to the website. Don’t worry, the FreakUSB, Freakduino boards, software and tutorials all still available.
The Freakduino boards are designed for rapid prototyping, evaluation, and deployment of custom wireless Arduino based devices. They’re fully compatible with the Arduino IDE and toolchain, which offers a single click compile and download and a rich ecosystem of open source software and tutorials available on the internet.
The boards are designed to introduce people to wireless sensor networking inexpensively and without having to deal with complex toolchains, protocol stacks, and software.
Whilst FreakUSB is standalone, wireless communications tool designed to be tethered to a PC or PC-like device such as a Raspberry Pi. It can be a wireless data sniffer that allows you to check the data you’re sending with your other compatible wireless devices or if you have a pair , you can use them to control another PC to send, for example, wireless triggers to another device to inform it to change a screen visual, execute some action, power down, etc.
