I'm into decentralized networks, open source hardware, modular design, distributed manufacturing, appropriate technology and solarpunk.
I spend most of my time liberating data from diabetes devices like insulin pumps and blood glucose meters, writing open-source software for tidepool.org.
I would like to spend more time growing food and building hardware to support that, and I hope to find inspiration here in the Merveilles.town community.
Being able to export your PCB as a 3D model does make designing the enclosure so much easier. #theFoundry
Designing the enclosure for my open-source outdoor air quality monitor and trying out various test configurations on the 3D printer. #theFoundry
Just open-sourced the code, schematic, PCB layout and Bill of Materials for the air quality monitor I'm working on.
Just got Outside Influence, a new e-zine made by Hardware Things, the best newsletter about hardware tech on the African continent: https://www.hardwarethings.org/zine
It's working! I made a solar-powered air quality monitor sending data over LoRa to The Things Network. #theFoundry
Sniffing some I2C packets to figure out why this battery fuel gauge chip I'm trying to talk to is not responding.
This $10 logic analyzer is one of the best debugging tools I've ever bought.
Discovered the Aesthetics Wiki through the Dense Discovery newsletter this morning: https://aesthetics.fandom.com/wiki/Solarpunk
Typing out sample code from a magazine like it's 1995, except in 2021 it's to play music on a Raspberry Pi Pico with only a small speaker and a resistor as external components. #theFoundry
@PINE64 Apologies if this has been asked many times already, but is the Nutcracker Challenge still open, i.e., are there still EVBs available?
"Currently, less than 0.1% of hydrogen produced in Europe is green, produced via the electrolysis of water, with the electricity used in the process coming from renewable sources like wind and solar. More than 90% is grey hydrogen, made using fossil fuels like oil and coal, which emit CO2. This means that at a moment of climate emergency, public investment in hydrogen will essentially keep funding the same old pollutants."

Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
