Alexa Enabled Light Switch (DIY Home Automation, NodeMCU, ESP8266, IoT, Arduino, 3D Printing)

Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant is found in many consumer electronic devices, and is a great way to get started with home automation. I recently purchased several Echo Dots, and while some of the came bundled with smart plugs that can turn my floor lamps into IoT devices, Alexa cannot be used for my home’s overhead…

Is gallium nitride the silicon of the future?

Is gallium nitride the silicon of the future?

The global electronics industry has been fueled by silicon from the get-go, but that may soon change. Products are slowly appearing that replace silicon with gallium nitride, a material that promises to shrink technology down while making it more efficient. We take a look inside one of these products to find out how gallium nitride…

Your future tech may rely on deep-sea mining

As the demand grows for the metals that power electronics, we may have to look farther and farther for mining opportunities. The next big mining frontier is the deep sea: along the seafloor, mysterious vents shoot scalding hot fluid into the ocean. These vents are a haven for miraculous and unique sea life, but they’re…

We’re working on these lovely eInk breakouts come in multiple sizes and have an SRAM buffer, so you don’t have to have lots of free memory to use them. We like the red/black/white tri-color displays for that vivid red highlighting! They look great even in bright daylight https://www.adafruit.com/api/quotes.php?random=1 Visit the Adafruit shop online – http://www.adafruit.com…
