Automate Testing of Component Fatigue Life with Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi

from Kyelo Torres via hackaday.ioImagine having to run a life cycle test by hand! Boring! Don’t worry, this machine can automate that processes and all it takes is $150. I interned at a company that needed me to test the fatigue life of a component. Instead of testing the component by hand, I decided to make a machine that would automate the process for me!See project!Each Friday is PiDay here... Read more

Configure and read out the Raspberry Pi gas sensor (MQ-X)

via Raspberry Pi TutorialsSensors are necessary to detect the components of the air. These are used e.g. in smoke detectors. However, instructions for using these gas sensors at the Raspberry Pi are rare, which is why in this tutorial the general use of such MQ modules at the Raspberry Pi is shown. Thus, e.g. smoke detectors or air quality testers can be built. How to configure any MQ sensor and... Read more

Interactive Wind Chimes @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi

Rad build + tutorial from instructables user frazermerrick.Perpetual Chimes is a set of augmented wind chimes that offer an escapist experience where your collaboration composes the soundscape.
