Thermal Imaging an ‘Unidentified Metal Object’ Prompts Bomb Squad Visit #Scotland #3DScanning @Sketchfab

This is a fun story about how a random trip to the beach turned into a 3D-scanning session which prompted a call to the police and eventually ‘the Royal Navy bomb disposal unit from the Scottish Borders’ to investigate an unknown piece of debris in a part of the world where sea mines are more common than you’d expect – complete with viewable 3D model!

Having wandered through the golf course to access the beach and scanning everything with the thermal equipment, a suspicious thermal signature was seen on our T420 thermal camera. It was odd as there shouldn’t have been anything like that there. So thought I’d take a look. Having climbed down the dunes, fought through the long grass I made it to the bottom of a small inlet and was greeted by a 75% buried round lump of metal. It was rusty and big, the thermal camera had picked up something I thought to myself.

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.
