After Raspberry Pi, the very famous board created for educational purposes in the United Kingdom, but which was then also used in many other areas, the time has come for the introduction of BBC micro:bit.he BBC, the company that has always been in the forefront of education and learning, has invested in this project, thus introducing itself into this new world of IoT and embedded electronics.In this article we will know in detail this small card, its features and some applications
In this article you will see how to implement the Forking in Python, one of the important and fundamental aspects of the Linux programming.
In this article we will start working with images, doing arithmetic operations on them. You'll also find out what Image Blending is and how to use it using the OPENCV library
Nicola Coppedè from CNR IMEM (Institute of Materials for Electronics and Magnetism) in collaboration with HFT Smartsensors and ComfTec, presented at Rome Maker Faire 2016 an innovative t-shirt produced by HFT, that incorporate special biosensors realized directly on the textile fiber. The biosensor are devoted to the characterization of the athletes sweat during the performances
The Linuxday is the main Italian event dedicated to Linux, the free software, the open culture and sharing. We arrived at the 16th edition of the event, and from 2001 to the present enormous strides have been made.

For over 30 years, the data were collected as the Earth surface images, thanks to a series of specialized satellites for remote sensing of the Earth’s surface, called Landsat. In all these years, an enormous amount of information has been collected and processed and allowed to monitor changes in the environment throughout this period.
In this article, you will continue the topic by seeing how to use them in a practical way using a raspberry card (in my case a raspBerry Pi Mod B +).
PCBGrip is a kit of mechanical components that is designed to integrate seamlessly with the framing system as OpenBeam (here to visit the official site).. Thus you can consider it as one of the kits useful for a rapid prototyping. This extension adds new features to the already enormous flexibility of the framing system, in particular, you will have a better integration of the electronic components.
The designer must remain free to choose any other procedure, and technical solution. In this article, I describe the realization of a home automation system of medium level with the most common automation functions such as load management, alert for flooding and gas leaks, lighting, intrusion detection, blinds and shutters motor control. All of this is made possible by the universal standard Konnex system. But before discussing about the actual construction, a brief description of the various devices is necessary.
