(Very) serious games

From my primary school in the 60’s, I remember that we flew hundreds of paper planes in the school yard. Depending upon the way paper was folded, these planes would be fast or fly long distance or be able to perform some sorts of acrobatics figures (Mostly unexpected I must say). At the same time […]

Trick of the day

This is a funny although very serious one: When you are looking for something very special, pretty complex such as papers on thermodynamics, astronomy, advanced electronics, etc. and you fail to find some information of interest, just insert the “arduino” word to your sequence of searched words. From my own experience, the chances of finding […]

The word of the day …

Thank you Michel, a senior professor in economy with which we had a pleasant time last Sunday, for talking about Jugaad during talks about news paradigms in many domains. I like very much this concept, and I ought to spend more time with Dr. Shiv Parakash Rathnam (alias Dr. Shiv) talking about this principle that I […]

Cool stuff of the day

Although very handy for basic applications, you may soon or later want to get rid of the basic timing functions from Arduino and start using advanced timing featuring better accuracy and avoid time consuming waiting loops. There are several approaches to achieve this goal. Firstly, you may explore the web and try to find some information of interest. […]

Amazing 3D printing

Cool stuff of the day

Thoughts of the day

I read in the news that the FBI (with a little help from his friends) managed to hack an iPhone which might contain valuable information for tracking some bloody devils. “We no longer need Apple assistance” for breaking the safety locks declared the Department Of Justice. This is the end point of a legal dispute between authorities […]

As a key player in this domain, Quai-Lab displays its current projects: Energyvore a fully original robots game featuring wireless remotely control funny robots which try to collect energy and bring as much of this energy to their […]

The bi-bi binary code

Most of us know that many scientists are also artists: Da Vinci was an eminent painter, Samuel F.B. Morse spent much of his life as a painter too, many early anthropologists and naturalists were excellent at sketching and coloring their observations. Nothing too much too surprising anyway, as many scientist share the taste for imagination, innovation, creativity with artists. […]
