We’ve got 3 plants, all fairly close to each other, and I wanted to create an IoT project so that it could send an email notification, as well as a visual ID when each individual plant required some TLC. Having worked with Particle.io before, I knew that a Particle Photon would be the best way to set it up.

If you’ve used the RetroPie operating system before, you’ll know how easy it is to integrate USB and Bluetooth gamepads as controllers. But let’s say you’ve got a robot that you want to control with a joystick, or in my case, I’m building an LED Matrix to use for retro games and I want to use the awesome 8Bitdo controllers for it. Well, it’s not quite as simple as connecting it and watching the magic happen.

Running a virtual Raspberry Pi on your computer can be a neat way to experiment in a Raspbian-like environment without being tethered to a physical Pi. In this video, I'll walk you through the process of installing Raspberry Pi Desktop on a virtual machine. A virtual machine is like having a virtual computer inside your computer. The VM will share the same resources as your real machine (ethernet port or wifi for internet access, a windowed or full-screen program will be the VM's virtual monitor). If you don't follow, all will become clear during the video once you see what's going on.

An infinity mirror creates a striking optical illusion - a tunnel of light that seems to tear through space. I built this infinity-mirror table using some addressable LEDs, a Particle Photon and easily obtainable timber supplies.

We set up our Taz 6 and it's OctoPrint Server with a bed-mounted camera and light system. That way we can monitor my prints from the other side of the warehouse using OctoPrint, and more importantly, we can record some primo looking time-lapses of our 3D prints.

Let's take a look at the new Siglent SDG1032X Arbitrary function generator. We're looking at yet another example of the closing gap between hobbyist and pro gear - the growing feature set and capabilities of entry-level equipment continues to improve. Take a look at the video for this article to see a full dive into the user-experience.

The Maker Revolution celebrates the creation of new devices and the modification of existing ones - the transition from a consumer buying goods to eventually having a major part in their creation. The Maker Revolution places strong emphasis on free (as in speech) sharing of designs, code and ideas. Learning is self-motivated and usually just for the fun of it.

Whilst it might not look so distinctive in photos, the 8Bitdo Zero (not to be confused with the Pi Zero of course) is possibly the most unique of them all, and that’s because it’s actually incredibly tiny. It’s a diminutive 16mm long and 12.8mm high, and it weighs 50g. 50 GRAMS! So anyway, let’s take a look at some of the specs, and then I’ll tell you what I think.

The 1000Z line of oscilloscopes from Rigol is one of our favourites. They have luxuriously large displays, deep memory and about all the features you'd want in a 'scope. Often, a long list of features implies difficult to navigate menus, but the user-experience from these 'scopes is great! The second row of context buttons down the left of the screen give you button-per-item interaction rather than more endless scrolling.
