Welcome to the Electromaker.io Meet a Maker podcast! In Meet a Maker episode 2, your host Moe Long sits down with maker, magical unicorn software engineer, and cosplayer Amie DD (Amie Double D) to talk maker spaces, movies, LEGOs, and more!
Here at Electromaker, we love makers, and not just the maker space and projects. We adore actual makers too. Often, the focus falls on their creations. Let's learn more about DIYer and awesome Electromaker community member Gyro!
With October comes the usual slew of pumpkin-flavored coffee, popcorn, cereal, and virtually anything mildly food-related. What better way to celebrate than with a fun, seasonal maker project? Whether you're looking for a seasonal creation for adults, a family-friendly endeavor, or something in between, there's an option for you. Check out the best DIY Halloween projects for makers!
The Raspberry Pi is argualby the most popular single-board computer (SBC) on the market. However, the SBC space is ripe with a plethora of Raspberry Pi alternatives. Notably, the Odroid XU4, ASUS Tinker Board, and Libre Computer ROC Renegade are superb Raspberry Pi competitors. The UDOO x86 is a powerful single-board computer which boasts tons of uses. Check out the top six best UDOO projects!
The Arduino is a programmable circuit board, or microcontroller. It's open-source, and may be used for a variety of neat maker projects. Notably, it differs from single-board computers (SBCs) such as the Raspberry Pi in that the Arduino focuses on interfacing with software which interacts with the physical board. As such, Arduino projects are more maker-oriented, whereas SBC projects range from basic Linux desktops and retro gaming machines to advanced robotics. Nevertheless, there are loads of Arduino projects which you can make. Check out the 10 best Arduino projects!
One of the most popular types of DIY build are those in the steampunk style, where archaic technology is given a modern-day refresh, or modern ideas are styled in the trappings of 19th and early 20th century materials.

While maker projects vary, when LEDs are involved, it's highly enjoyable. RocketLife, Inc. offers its Light Effects Designer software. Aimed at the do-it-yourself (DIY) crowd, RocketLife's software allows for animation groups in a string of LEDs. Through combining hardware and software, RocketLife makes it so that anyone can create custom LED light shows and signs without any programming.
In the single-board computer (SBC) space, there are loads of maker boards. These include the Odroid XU4, ASUS Tinker Board, UDOO x86, and Orange Pi Prime. However, the most popular SBC on the market remains the Raspberry Pi. With its various iterations, solid price to performance ratio, and fantastic community support, the Raspberry Pi is easily the top development board available. Since it's such a widely-adopted SBC, the Raspberry Pi features tons of projects ideas. Check out 10 best Raspberry Pi projects!
DIY cameras are all the rage thanks to the existence of compact and affordable SBCs, but few have a real purpose behind them, beyond proof of concept. So what makes this Arduino Uno-powered camera any different?
We’ve all been there. You’re out and about, on a sunny day, when all of a sudden the clouds gather and it starts to rain. It’s not a light shower, either, but that apocalyptic type of rain storm that looks like all the rain in the world is going to fall before it stops.
Ever wondered what happened to the Doctor’s robot companion, K9? The Time Lord’s best friend has made a handful of appearances in Doctor Who’s 21st century revival, but since 2010 he’s been notable by his absence on screen … (we’ll ignore the fact he was redesigned and given his own TV show.)
