A Motherboard Manufacturer's Take On A Raspberry Pi Competitor
Hackaday.com [RASPBERRY]
In the almost five years since the launch of the original Raspberry Pi we have seen a huge array of competitors emerge in the inexpensive single board computer market. Many have created their own form factors, but an increasing number have gone straight for the jugular of the fruity board from Cambridge by copying its form factor and interfaces as closely as possible. We've seen sterling efforts from the likes of Banana Pi, Odroid, and several others, but none have yet succeeded in toppling [...]

Engadget [ROBOT]
Today on In Case You Missed It: A soft robotic device made by Harvard and Boston Childrens Hospital researchers has been tested on pigs and so far, seems quite promising in treating heart disease. The robotic heart wraps around parts of existing tissue and helps squeeze, keeping the blood moving. But unlike other existing devices that are inserted into the heart, this just goes over the top. Its makers believe that will lead to better outcomes for patients that use it, since cycling bloo [...]

Multiextrusion 3D Printing and OpenSCAD
Hackaday.com [PRINTING]
In a recent posting called Liar's 3D Printing, I showed you how you can print with multiple filament colors even if your printer only has one extruder and hot end. It isn't easy, though, and a lot of models you'll find on sites like Thingiverse are way too complicated to give good results. An object with 800 layers, each with two colors is going to take a lot of filament changes and only the most patient among us will tolerate that. What that means is you are likely to want to mak [...]

Plus Size Watch with a Pair of Tiny Nixies
Hackaday.com [AI]
When you stuff a pair of Nixie tubes into a wristwatch the resulting timepiece looks a little like Flavor Flav's necklace. Whether that's a good thing or not depends on your taste and if you're comfortable with the idea of wearing 200 volts on your wrist, of course. As a build, though, [prototype_mechanic]'s watch is worth looking into. Sadly, details are sparse due to a computer issue that ate the original drawings and schematics, but we can glean a little from the Instructa [...]

New Lathe Day is Best Day
Hackaday.com [BEST]
As [Quinn Dunki] rightly points out, modern industrial civilization was probably conceived on the bed of a lathe. Turning is an essential step in building every machine tool, including lathes, and [Quinn] decided it was time to invite one into her shop. But she discovered a dearth of information to guide the lathe newbie through that first purchase, and thus was born the first installment in her series on choosing and using a new lathe. As for the specifics of the purchase, [Quinn]'s articl [...]
