What can we do with an hacked Playtation controller? Surely one of the most straightforward applications is controlling something remote… Such as this easy-to-realize Arduino Robot Rover.

A common 5mm LED isn’t the best in every situation, often a bit more power is required. That’s why I’ve connected a 3W power RGB LED to an STM32F0-Discovery board.
Intel was always in the front line from long time, discovering and adopting the best cutting edge technologies to shape the future. Now, the “thinking big” became also “thinking big for the makers”! With Arduino, it realized a new amazing board, the Galileo
“Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the wireless non-contact use of radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically stored information. Some tags are powered by and read at short ranges (a few meters) via magnetic fields (electromagnetic induction). Others use a local power source such as a battery, or else have no battery but collect energy from the interrogating EM field, and then act as a passive transponder to emit microwaves or UHF radio waves (i.e., electromagnetic radiation at high frequencies). Battery powered tags may operate at hundreds of meters. Unlike a bar code, the tag does not necessarily need to be within line of sight of the reader, and may be embedded in the tracked object.
