NewImage

Say hello to last round of BeagleBone Black case winners! We picked 10 of the entries we saw or were emailed. Congratulations to all the winners, we’ll be contacting you to send your BeagleBone Black case. You can also email us (bbbcase@adafruit.com) to claim your prize! Thanks to everyone who participated- we featured BeagleBone projects every Tuesday and will be posting many of the projects that entered!


Marcelo G made a BeagleBone Black ISDB-T receiver-

BBB as an ISDB-T receiver, this allows to get digital television reception on a LCD monitor using the HDMI port.

The Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting – Terrestrial (ISDB-T) system was developed to provide flexibility, expandability, and commonality for multimedia broadcasting services using terrestrial networks.

On August 28, 2009, Argentina officially adopted the ISDB-T system calling it internally SATVD-T (Sistema Argentino de Televisión Digital – Terrestre)

Cory Johannsen writes-

I have now implemented the rotary encoder with pushbutton, integrated pianobar process control inside my application, and built a simple menu to allow the selection of a station. The rotary controls the scroll selection in station list mode, and the volume in play mode. I am now using a $9 USB audio adapter, it works flawlessly. Next is WiFi, then I can plan the final build.

HudsonHardware entered their GrannyCam.

The project grew from observing my mother and my 2-year-old son, Hudson, who struggle with the typical tools – smartphones, computers, tablets – available for communicating with one another. For my mom, now in her 70s, the tools currently available are an enormous challenge: too feature-laden, too complex. For my son, who just turned two years old, the tools are also challenging, though for slightly different reasons: too easily broken or disconnected, too expensive to handle unsupervised, too fraught with concerns over privacy.

Benjamin Cabe gives an excellent demonstration of his M2M/IOT setup on the Eclipse foundation Stand at the 2014 FOSDEM stand. Check out his use of the Google Glass he’s wearing to control the toy Greenhouse and the Augmented reality information display presented on the tablet

Ronald Estacio writes-

Test driving my new BeagleBone Black. Having all the programming utilities built into the board is making for a great start. Time to hook up the GPS receiver and 128×64 LCD and start learning more about the Linux OS.

Stephen Frank sent in his project with a bonus cat!

The trick is to keep the Beagle and Cat separated…they don’t get along very well.

So many uses for the beaglebone, I keep changing it. Now it’s a print server.
