Community Corner – April 29, 2016: The Featured Projects from this Week


Featured Adafruit Google+ Community Project

(Note: Google+ login required.)

Ingmar Stapel posted his awesome Floppy Disk Robot project this week in our Community. It looks great!

Today I finished my Floppy Disk Robot with mecanum wheels.

The robot is powered by four DC Motors and a Raspberry Pi 3. I control the robot via a web interface with live video streaming. At the moment only one L298N H-Bridge is used as motor driver and the robot is not able to control each motor separately. I need to update the motor driver to enable the robot to drive omnidirectional driving maneuvers. (read more)


Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog

This week on the blog we featured Instructables user Rockathon’s super silly Internet of Toots (IoT): A Social Whoopee Cushion project.

Check out the full write-up here.

Putting a rubber balloon on someone’s chair? Pfffft. So last century.

Firing off digital flatulence at will by tweeting at a small hidden device? Yes please!

Perhaps you’ve heard about the IoT (Internet of Toots) and want in on the action? Well you’re in luck, because I’m here to show you how to hack together your very own wifi whoopee cushion. For just a few bucks you can make your own smart fart machine, and send rude noises to your friends from anywhere! (read more)
