There wasn’t enough time to really discover all of the BeagleBone Black projects at World Maker Faire in New York. I did post some quick pictures on
Google+, but I barely had time to breathe at the Faire!
OpenROV – Open hardware underwater robot
Hoboken MakerBar Orbital Rendersphere – Spinning persistence of vision globe
GrannyCam – Video chat for Grandma/Grandkids
Matt Mets’ Crystal Gateway – Sculpture covered in LEDs
Tempo Automation Electronics Factory – Desktop electronics manufacturing robot
- TinyG – Motion control board adds web interface through BeagleBone Black
BBot – BeagleBone + FPGA remote control robot
Logi-family – FPGA development cape for BeagleBone Black
RAMPS adapter cape – Connect a CNC or RAMPS controller to BeagleBone Black
Jolly Roger Labs Rosetta Shield
- Type A Machines also showed of a BeagleBone Black based 3D printer
There were also at least 10 talks that had some coverage of BeagleBone Black!
Makers are discovering what out-of-box software, a higher-performance processor running Linux,
a great set of low-level hardware interfaces supported by high-levle software and
on-board dedicated-to-real-time microcontrollers can do for them!
