An automatic Nespresso capsule dispenser

By seb, in DIY and Android, february 06,2015.

When one gets a Nespresso coffee machine, the first question that comes to mind is how to organize the different colors of coffee capsules. While chatting with friends about the existing solutions to this "problem", we have been challenged to build an automatic coffee capsule dispenser. Of course, we could not resist...

New ! The Yocto-RS232

By martinm, in New stuff, january 30,2015.

This week, we are presenting the Yocto-RS232. This project was in and about for a while, but because of a recent increase in the demand for this kind of module, we at last decided to complete it. The Yocto-RS232 has a hard duty: to simplify your life to access anything with an RS232 interface. You must be thinking that FTDI has been doing this very well for a long time... Maybe, but the Yocto-RS232 may open up your eyes to new horizons.

Light sensors comparison

By mvuilleu, in Reviews, New stuff and Measures, january 23,2015.

Some time ago, we had to stop making the Yocto-Light because the OSRAM light sensor that we used on this module stopped being produced. As a replacement, we now offer two products: the Yocto-Light-V2, more reactive, based on an AVAGO sensor, and the Yocto-Light-V3, truer to the human eye, based on a ROHM sensor. Let's see how they compare...

First tests of the LIDAR-Lite telemeter

By mvuilleu, in DIY, Measures and Reviews, january 09,2015.

When you wanted to measure a distance at a precise location, there wasn't, up to now, any middle range between very expensive laser telemeters (of the Baumer type) and cheap sensors (of the Sharp type). These cheap sensors don't provide a real measured value and are very limited distance-wise. Therefore, we were particularly interested in the LIDAR-Lite project which announced a distance measure of several meters for under $100. Nine months later, the baby is here at last and we can test the final version of the product to try out this new technology.
