Turn any object into a drone with this 3D printable DIY kit
In our brave new world of drones, both the military and the civilian sectors have found plenty of uses for little unmanned aerial vehicles, and people in the DIY and robotics communities are building their own versions, but these kinds of devices still haven’t really become accessible to most people yet.
But now, thanks to the work of Dutch designer Jasper van Loenen, that may change, as anyone with access to a 3D printer can use his files to create most of the parts needed to build a “Drone It Yourself” kit.

Leverage the power of Android, Arduino, and the internet to build a home irrigation system that can be controlled from your smartphone.

A couple of the engineers at Google, J.J Barrons and Joe Fernandez, have put together a method for controlling a home lawn or garden irrigation system using Android, Arduino, Python, Dart and the Google App Engine, and they’ve opensourced it, so you can build your own.
