Jason Clark shared a video of the awesome pi project he developed for his makerspace this week in our Community!

The video isn’t the greatest, but this is a raspberry pi and a piface that will bounce the cable modem at our makerspace, inventor forge. A python script tries to ping 8.8.8.8 every minute (sped up for this video) and after 6 failures it flips the relay to bounce the cable modem. The LEDs light up solid for each failure to give a nice visual indicator of what’s up. This pi is also running UniFi to control our wireless access points and I plan on using the second relay on the pi face to do the same thing for the POE injector that powers the APs. (read more)

You have probably heard of Cherry MX keys in relation to gaming keyboards. They are very nice keys with excellent tactile feel. They are also extremely durable and rated for 50 million keystrokes. Products that use them are often top-tier and pricey, but come with cool features like multi-colored backlighting and re-programmable keys. (read more)
