In order to use SSL certificates and other security things, it is better to have complete control of the infrastructure.
This project aims to replace the various gauges in the center panel of my Corvette with sleeker, modern ones that can be fitted in a smaller area, freeing up the center console for an entertainment/navigation unit.
Intelligent central heating solution, based on Arduino-based wireless thermostats and a Linux-powered central controlling unit, in order to manage different temperature zones within a house. The system will not require any substantial setup, and just figure out the optimal parameters as it goes.
Home Automation with MisterHouse and a CubieTruck.
The main goal is to build an arcade machine, in a storage box for easy transportation
Brixel's Project Kerbal
We're using the old Thrill Drive Arcade cabinet together with a dedicated controller to have the most genuine Kerbal Experience possible
The loggingserver is one of the first projects at Brixel. It's goal is to be a very flexible monitoringserver, with a very simple yet powerful core.
Creating motion by vibrating, these little bots are cute, as wel as fun and easy to make.
Let's light up the space using LED strips instead of those power hungry TL lights.
Because of recent infrastructure issues, the online infrastructure needs to be handled more professionally.
A smart distribution plug capable of monitoring Voltage and Current, controlling appliances and integrate into a home automation system via a wireless network.
The goal of this project is to create a camera mount for the raspberry pi. The camera will be able to pan and tilt via servo-engines.
Using a conversion piece to connect a normal soda bottle to a gardena coupler, we can add air pressure to the bottle (with a bicycle pump), and then release it so it flies away.
The musicbox should be able to stream music from Google Music (or other streaming services) and show controls and artwork on the optional LCD-display
Authentication using NFC
NFC laat toe om via wireless-communicatie (al dan niet via bluetooth) bepaalde acties uit te voeren op mobile devices. Met behulp van NFC-kaartjes en een Arduino (of dergelijke) en een NFC-shield moet het mogelijk zijn om deze te gebruiken voor een authenticatie/"Open the door"-systeem.
The programming language C# is one of the most common industrial languages out there. In this tutorial we'll get acquainted with the syntatic sugar, the development process and overall experience of C# (and the related .NET-framework).
Apt Cache Server
We've build an Apt Caching Server for Brixel to reduce bandwidth
3d printed robot - InMoov
Here is “InMoov”, the first life size humanoid robot you can 3D print and animate. You have a 3D printer, some building skills, This project is for you!!
3D printed plant feeder
This 3D printed bottle cap can be stuck in the soil of your plants. This way the plants take as much water as they need, and you don't have to water them so often.
Local Node Red server
The Brixel HQ has the potential to have a lot of sensors, but since we don't want to have them each individually connect to a specific service, we need a local node red server. Node red is an IoT hub, which you can run locally. It has a web interface, and can be integrated with various IoT-device brokers (like MQTT).
"The" project to get a roof above our heads...
Inspired by the invention of the webcam, I decided to create the next best thing: a coffee pot that tweets when there is fresh coffee made!
3D Allen Key
This project creates an Allen key (Hex key, Inbussleutel) in OpenSCAD and explains how it was done. The code is parametreized, allowing you to create a complete set.
The SpaceAPI gives hackerspaces all over the world the possibilities to show whether they are open or not. We want to implement this in our space.
Wouters 6 bay full tower Computer Casemod
I was looking for a new computer case for my new desktop (internals still need to be picked). After looking around I wasn't satisfied with the value per € of new cases. I remembered I had a 6 bay full tower on the attic at my parents place. The case used to house a webserver and arrived with a tape drive (iirc). I've got no idea who manufactured this case, but the ABS front panel does show that it was molded in 1999.
So now I'm painting the sides, cutting a shape in one side and putting plexi behind it. I'm also replacing the standard ABS front plate with a "grill"/mesh structure to complete this style overhaul.
A "box" that will provide a temporary (Wifi) network in a quick and easy way during meetings and events.
Brixel used to have an IRC-room, but since Slack we Slack it all.
