The power of Kinect!!


Here we go The title is enough to understand the main topic of this article: Kinect. It is a powerful device released by Microsoft to improve the level of entertainment on its last console, Xbox 360.

wxPython simple example


In our opinion, in few months/years, Python will lead the programming languages rank. Python is an interpreted language. Its aim is: simplicity and clear syntax. By the way I admire Python because it is so simple and fantastic but I would not recommend this language to a “newbie” who wants to learn a programming language. Why? Well, using C language, computer architecture and structure become pretty clear even if C is really harder than Python. Nowadays [...]


It’s time to Chrome


Hello everyone today I would like to speak to all those people who, such as me,  use the browser in several ways,surfing the net, developing or test their creations.

How to use ArduIMU as Joystick


Yes, we used ArduIMU as joystick as well. I was watching few videos on youtube about Arduino’s projects and I found many videos showing Ardupilot simulation. There: Eureka! There is a simple process to make an Arduino Uno being recognized as Hid Device by soldering something on board but I didn’t want that way. I wanted the programming way! I decided to connect my ArduIMU to my computer via FTDI and build some script to [...]


How to read binary data from ArduIMU


Ciao a tutti!! Hello folks! I have been quite busy these last months but now I would like to share something we have worked on. Recently we bought an ArduIMU-V2(Flat), a very small platform containing a 3 axis accelerometer, 3 axis gyroscope and accelerometer, GPS Port and other things.
