Simplify Your Life With This Pocket Rotary Cellphone | Hackaday
With its constant siren song of distraction and endless opportunity for dopamine hits, a smartphone can cause more problems than it solves. The simple solution would be a no-nonsense flip phone, but that offers zero points for style. So why not build your own rotary dial pocket cellphone?

Of course, what style points accrue to [Justine Haupt] take a hit in terms of practicality, but that was never really the point of this build. And even then, the phone appears to be surprisingly useful. It’s based on the rotary dial from a Trimline phone, which itself was an epic hack back in 1965 when it was introduced. The 3D-printed case contains an ATmega2560V microcontroller and an Adafruit FONA 3G cell module, while a flexible mono eInk display adorns the outside.

The Steadi-One - Stabilizing hand tremors, one hand at a time @ Steadiwear Inc
Inspired by the technology that stabilizes buildings during earthquakes. Ball Joint Damper + Tuned Mass Damper + Boa Dial Fit = Independent living. Uses a “smart” fluid and a ball to counteract tremors. The smart fluid instantly stiffens to a near-solid in the presence of high speed movements from any level of tremors while allowing your natural & voluntary hand movements.

How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy by Jenny Odell
This thrilling critique of the forces vying for our attention re-defines what we think of as productivity, shows us a new way to connect with our environment and reveals all that we’ve been too distracted to see about our selves and our world.

When the technologies we use every day collapse our experiences into 24/7 availability, platforms for personal branding, and products to be monetized, nothing can be quite so radical as… doing nothing. Here, Jenny Odell sends up a flare from the heart of Silicon Valley, delivering an action plan to resist capitalist narratives of productivity and techno-determinism, and to become more meaningfully connected in the process.

In Pursuit Of Haptics For A Better VR Experience | Hackaday
Virtual reality holds the promise of an immersive experience that can satisfy our senses to a level comparable with… well, reality. The field has come a long way, but Sarah Vollmer makes a good point that many of the VR systems currently in use are bulky and difficult to transfer from person to person.

While headsets have become smaller and lighter and now feature improved motion tracking and resolution, their ability to affect the user’s other senses hasn’t seen nearly the same advancement. Haptic feedback systems need to catch up with headsets, and how to unobtrusively allow users feel simulated physical contact in VR is an area Sarah is researching as part of her PhD work. This is the topic of her 2019 Hackaday Superconference talk which you’ll find embedded below.

A Chinese company named Tuya offers a free-to-brand turnkey smart home solution to anyone. Using their offer is dead-simple, since everything can be done by clicking through the Tuya web page, from choosing your pre-designed products or pre-programmed wifi-modules (mostly ESP8266) to building your own app. In the end, this has resulted in as they claim over 11 000 devices 'made' by over 10 000 vendors using Tuyas firmware and cloud services.

Vermin Supreme, the "Elder Statesman of Wingnuts,"
Vermin Supreme, the "Elder Statesman of Wingnuts," Says His 2020 Presidential Campaign Is for Real @ Teen Vogue.

That’s right: Vermin Supreme — the man who made his name on a platform of free ponies, mandatory toothbrushing, and bringing actual kangaroos into courts; the man who calls himself a “friendly fascist” and “tyrant you can trust” — says he’s actually taking his 2020 campaign seriously.

“This election year is ultimately my first real campaign,” Supreme tells me. “I have a solid staff of about a dozen people around the country with the various state coordinators, and it's a very interesting thing. I've never really done it, and there's a lot more strategic concerns and things that never would have mattered when it was an imaginary campaign.”

Just Transition : framework for energy transition
Just Transition is a framework developed by the trade union movement[1] to encompass a range of social interventions needed to secure workers' rights and livelihoods when economies are shifting to sustainable production, primarily avoiding climate change and protecting biodiversity. For trade unions, “Just Transition” describes the transition towards a climate‐resilient and low‐carbon economy that maximizes the benefits of climate action while minimizing hardships for workers and their communities. Needs will vary in different countries, though some policies must be applied everywhere.

3D Print on Canvas - Wall Art!
Over the course of a few years as a hobby woodworker I used free plans found online to first build sliding barn door nightstands, then a Rustic Modern King Bedframe, and finally a desk for the master bedroom. In order to match the same wood look, I custom made some picture frames and mirror to match. But I couldn't figure out what sort of wall art to use above the bed. I got an idea that with a 3D printer and wood filament, I could design my own wall art on canvas! It was so simple, yet turned out beautiful!

The SparkFun 1-Channel LoRa Gateway is a powerful 3-network capable device thanks to an onboard ESP32 WROOM module and an RFM95W LoRa modem. The RFM95W handles the 915MHz band while the ESP32 takes care of Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities. One of the ideal uses is to convert LoRa (Long Range) radio messages into data packets that you can access via the web, but of course the flexibility it offers can be put to many more uses! It's a perfect, low-cost tool for monitoring a dozen-or-so LoRa devices and relaying their messages up to the cloud.

What’s actually on the floppy, then? The corresponding Spotify album URL. He just pops a disk in the drive, and the Pi does the rest — it detects the floppy event and executes a script that starts an open-source Spotify client.

Project North Star is Now Open Source - Leap Motion Blog
At Leap Motion, we envision a future where the physical and virtual worlds blend together into a single magical experience. At the heart of this experience is hand tracking, which unlocks interactions uniquely suited to virtual and augmented reality. To explore the boundaries of interactive design in AR, we created Project North Star, which drove us to push beyond the limitations of existing systems.

Today, we’re excited to share the open source schematics of the North Star headset, along with a short guide on how to build one. By open sourcing the design and putting it into the hands of the hacker community, we hope to accelerate experimentation and discussion around what augmented reality can be.

Carbon tape: cabon fiber heater
All heated clothes can be roughly divided into two categories: 5-15 watts of power and the power of 30-90 watts.
The most simple and inexpensive commercially available heated clothing refers to the first type. They work from a small light batteries for many hours so can give just a little heat per hour. They usually have 3-4 small heating element, so heated unevenly. Since heat generated in a small area we can feel it but this amount of power is only enough in the cool summer night. Like this one.
The second type of clothing are usually bought by bikers, divers, hikers, pilots and mountaineers and can be subjected to very cold conditions. This type of heated clothing requires a huge amount of energy to heat evenly throughout the body.

his slick MQTT-connected thermometer created by [Martin Cerny] is a perfect example.

The case for the device, which [Martin] calls Temper, is printed in a stone-look PLA filament and has been carefully designed so that LEDs shining behind it illuminate perfect square “pixels” on the front. There’s a living hinge button on the left side, and on the right, an opening for the SHT30 temperature and humidity sensor. Some may say that the look of the sensor aperture could be improved with a printed grille, but there was likely a concern about reduced airflow.
