Japanese instant noodle makers create the most innovative, weird, entertaining commercials; 4) Getting our hands all up on the CASIO version of the action cam; 5) Robot, yo.Robots filmed with an i Phone, timed to dubstep, yo!What devices are turned on at any given time depends largely on which of us is here, and what we’re doing.This project is a system to reduce our power consumption, particularly when we’re not there.When either of us comes into the room, all we have to do is tap our key fobs on a reader mounted by the door, and the room turns on or off what we normally use. The reader by the door reads the presence or absence of the tags.Without any hyperbole, Japan Robot Week is nothing short of amazing, inspiring, and in the truest sense of the word: awesome.This event, held in biennial alternation with the International Robot Exhibition (i REX), focuses primarily on service robotics, including various related technologies and components. Next Tuesday in Roppongi, the Disrupting Japan podcast will celebrate its second anniversary with a live show.This event, held in biennial alternation with the International Robot Exhibition (i REX), focuses primarily on service robotics, including various related technologies and components.
The book assumes that you have some experience with Arduino and micro-controllers (i.e., do you know what a breadboard, jumper wires, and circuits are? We start with a very brief introduction to RFID, follow up with two introductory technical tutorials on Arduino, and end with a fairly simple home automation project: Between my officemate and me, we have dozens of devices drawing power in our office: two laptops, two monitors, four or five lamps, a few hard drives, a soldering iron, Ethernet hubs, speakers, and so forth.Even when we’re not here, the room is drawing a lot of power.It’s not easy to immediately put what you learned into action (you might understand a subject theoretically but might not be comfortable enough with the subject to put it into practice).Disclaimer: I received this book for free through the O’Reilly Blogger program. is a very short “book” on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), a way to tag and identify objects over varying ranges, and how to use Arduino to create a few interesting RFID projects.
Great guests, open to the public, conducted in English, includes a Q & A session, this event promises to be one of the best networking opportunities of the year!
Emotionally capable machines and/or software are coming soon, but large numbers of young Japanese people developing romantic relationships with them would only compound a persistent and arguably unstoppable demographic emergency.1) Enjoy some of the absolute best parts of a summer in Japan; 2) Bitesize..of Akihabara, soundtracked to the Yamanote Line platform departure tune; 3) Poor samurai...
