Building an autonomous robot using a rover platform and advanced electronics is not an easy job. Kevin asked me to build a robot that would follow its user. A companion, very much like a robo-dog. See the project log here.
This page has been created to report unusual activity (radiation, temperature, humidity, luminosity, barometric pressure), as recorded by the uRADMonitor, including all the debug data to support the results. I cannot guarantee the measurement precision, I merely present the data recorded by the instruments.
A JNI Library for Android, to inject keys and touches but also listen for incoming input events to and from all applications, available as Open Source under GPL.
Some of these tubes contain small quantities of Cesium-137, Cobalt-60, Radium-226, Krypton-85. The radioactive elements have been added to increase the electronic response by improving the internal ionization processes.
A short review on my new Christmas gift, a neat digital soldering station, ZD 937, and a quick light installation that I did with LEDS, running directly on mains , 220V, using the ZD937.
A digital dosimeter design that can be used with multiple geiger tubes, constructed around the atmega8 microcontroller and a 2×16 LCD. Equipped with a radio Bluetooth module for remote operation.

DHT-22 is a small size, compact, dual temperature and humidity sensor featuring one-wire connectivity.
Build an ultrasonic sonar for non-contact distance measurements, using an Atmega8 and a HC-SR04
Locuiesc in Timisoara, si de curand am terminat o statie de monitorizare a nivelului de radiatii de fond. Cu exceptia catorva institute din tara, care rar dau publice graficele, statia mea e probabil singura alternativa de acest gen, accesibila utilizatorului obisnuit. Acest articol, redactat in romana, prezinta detalii asupra statiei, explica ce este radiatia de fond si cum apare ea, dar si ilustreaza grafice in timp real.
