BeagleBone Black case contest – Third round of winners, week 3 #beagleboneblackcase @TXInstruments @beagleboardorg


Say hello to third round of BeagleBone Black case winners! We picked 10 of the entries we saw or were emailed. If you entered and did not win check back next week, we still have 10 more to give away! Congratulations to all the winners, we’ll be contacting you to send your BeagleBone Black case. You can also email us ([email protected]) to claim your prize!


Jim Kleiner mounted an ADC Board on a BeagleBone Black.

Attached is a picture of a bbb used with an ADC board and two mixer/synthesizer boards to construct a software defined radio. (the bbb at the bottom was purchased from Adafruit). The capes for this project stack 3 high but I can still use a regular case 😉

BeagleQ bbq controller based on the beaglebone black platform.

The goal here is to build a PID based BBQ controller that is fully web enabled.

I have working hardware now and my attention will move towards the software. The plan is to do all the hardware interaction via the node web server. All the pretty pictures and forms will be done in JavaScript. The plan is to make this compatible with smart devices such as iphone, ipads as well as standard desktop browsers.

A controller for an automation system, the beaglebone black is connected to a 18 key keypad, 20×4 LCD screen, uses RS 485 communication to interface with external drive system, also has a web interface for user interaction

The goal of this project is create a cape for BeagleBone Black to drive a Sure Electronic 32×16 LED Display.

Glen Akins had 3 different submissions and they were all excellent. We liked this 12 x 12 Christmas light matrix the best!

This video shows a redo of an earlier project from my video “12 x 12 LED Matrix Driven by MacBook and FPGA.” In the first version of this project I used a MacBook and an Altera FPGA to drive a 12 x 12 matrix of GE Color Effect RGB LED holiday lights. In this updated version of the project, I’ve replaced the MacBook and the Altera-based FGPA board with a BeagleBone Black and a ValentFX LogiBone FPGA board.

Really quick demonstration of a simple Erlang application that lets you control the BeagleBone’s onboard LEDs via a web page. It was built using the Nerves project (http://nerves-project.org).

BeagleSNES is a complete Super Nintendo emulator system for the BeagleBoard-xM and BeagleBone Black hardware platforms. The version 0.5 release of BeagleSNES improves upon the previous version by adding support for the Circuitco LCD3 cape board for the BeagleBone Black, using a new XML-based configuration file to add games to the game selection GUI, adding button mapping support so that you can use your favorite gamepads with BeagleSNES, and making the BeagleSNES filesystem mountable on your Windows, OS X, or Linux PC to easily add games or change the configuration. Full file system images, source code, and documentation are available for download from the BeagleSNES web site.

Here’s my current project and entry to the #beagleboneblackcase contest: a Home Weather Station Network composed of 4 stations, powered by 2 arduinos, an atmega328P, a beaglebone (to send data online) and various sensors (DHT22, TMP36, Baro Pressure). This uses RF Links to communicate and then uploads data to Xively.

This is a fun project with lots of learning. Thanks to Adafruit Industries for the many Arduino libraries and tutorials!!!

My entrance in the Adafruit.com #BeagleBoneBlackCase competition Beaglebone Black with a USB sound card in an old AM radio

And just in time for a new Linux Outlaws!

This is the music player in my workshop, and I control it over the network with any device with a fairly standard compliant browser.

Writes to local MySQL DB, talks to central DB over ssh, does SNMP, etc. Measures light and temp. I could and probably should rig up an LCD display.


From February 1, 2014 to March 1, 2014, in partnership with TI/BeagleBone Adafruit will be giving away 10 BeagleBoneBlack cases per week, all you need to do is share your project and we’ll pick 10 a week for 4 weeks! Share a photo or video of your BeagleBone Black project on Flickr (1/2), Twitter (1/2), Vine, Youtube (1/2), Instagram (1/2), Google+ (1/2) or Facebook (1/2) and tag it: #beagleboneblackcase. Be sure to check the links to see if it’s searchable on the social/photo networks you’ve shared it with. You can also email it ([email protected]). We’ll post the winners each week on the Adafruit blog! Be sure to check back each week to see if you’ve won! You can only win once, however you can share as many projects as you’d like!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
