“Faraday Motion is accelerating open innovation within Personal Electric Vehicles.
We want to make Urban Transportation Intelligent, Personalized and simply Awesome.

For this to happen, we provide Hardware toolkits/components, Software API and host Workshops.”

They currently built two electric skateboards called the Spine and its successor the Hyperboard.

All source files are open source and provided online hardware and electronics.

Looking forward to build my own in the future :)

IoT is the current buzz word and I will be doing some more tinkering with current solutions this year. I have done projects with ArduinoRaspberry Pi and looking into relayr / Wunderbar right now.

relayr provides a tech stack with Wunderbar, that easily connects included sensors with the cloud. They provide a wide range of API endpoints to collect data and even integrate hardware solutions like Arduino orRaspberry Pi.

“The WunderBar is built for software developers. It is a powerful rapid prototyping and product development tool that enables developers to immediately start creating products and solutions that utilise the Internet of Things, without any prior hardware knowledge. No soldering or electronic engineering experience is needed. Just choose what sensors you need for your project and start coding.”

Starterkit should arrive next week …

Enjoy coding …

2015 has been one bumby ride, which I am gladly leaving behind for what is coming :)

Even though routine is always part of my work, I really had a lot of fun and engaging projects this year. Clients come and go, but I enjoy those that stick around to build something more.

I am looking forward to new projects, new puzzles to solve, connections that inspire and new things to learn in 2016. We all aspire to do what we really love to do. Thanks goes out to those this year, that showed me that this is still possible and that believing in people is still something to live by.

Some people will never learn and those were the bumby parts ;) You loose a little and still can win big :)

Enjoy your off time with your family and friends.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

“The Pi-hole can block ads for all devices on your network. All you need is a Raspberry Pi connected to your router. It was inspired as a low-cost, open source alternative to the AdTrap. The Pi-hole works on the the B, B+ and Pi 2.”

Will be a nice reuse for one of my older Rasberry Pis …

We are getting closer to Boostrap 4 and I really love what we are getting with the first alpha version.

  1. Improved grid system
  2. Opt-in flexbox support is here. Nice.
  3. Dropped wells, thumbnails, and panels for cards.
  4. Consolidated all our HTML resets into a new module, Reboot. Much cleaner.
  5. Dropped IE8 support and moved to rem and em units. Finally REM units and IE8 free. I know there will be still projects with IE8 requirements, but the amount of projects is getting less and less :)
  6. Improved auto-placement of tooltips and popovers. They are using Tether, have been using that for projects for some time now. GREAT!
